    where to send my a900 for repair?

    Nothing serious. The rear dial is not functioning properly. It's registering more clicks than actually rotated. For instance, when i look thru the pictures and rotate the rear dial only a few clicks the pictures would scroll endlessly. Same thing with changing the aperture. This doesnt happen all the time.

    I was wondering if i should send this to sony or get it fixed at a local camera shop because im not the original owner and i dont have the original receipt. Would sony still still fix it?
    thanks.

    Not knowing where you live makes this difficult to answer. Personally I have found Sony in Toronto to be very good, if a little slow, for both warranty and non-warranty work.

    You can easily fix your skipping control wheel problem yourself. Get a can of CRC QD Electronic cleaner (http://www.amazon.com/CRC-05101-QD-E...=pd_sim_auto_1). The amazon link is for illustrative purposes, you should be able to purchase a can locally at an auto parts store (I know the O'Reilly auto parts chain carry this). You can find similar products (electronic contact cleaner) from various manufacturers, and they should work as well. If you're using a different brand, make sure it's "quick dry" and "plastic safe".

    Attach the included tube to the nozzle, hold the camera inverted, and spray a burst on the top and bottom of the wheel. Work the wheel for 20-30 seconds. Your problem should be corrected. If not, repeat.

    Jaehoppa, please let us all know if Graham's solution (no pun intended!) works!

    Never know when it might be one of us.

    FWIW this was a very common problem with the A700...
