    Unhappy Help! My A900 won't auto focus anymore.

    My A900 just quite auto forcusing. Tried different lenses, none of them will auto focus now. What should I do? Never had any of my cameras broken like this before.

    If it is too late for a dealer swap, call Sony Service.
    There are several here wondering how their service program performs.

    Too bad.
    You didn't write what you have already tried. So some possible solutions that may sound simple.
    1. contact problem at the bayonett. maybe try cleaning the camera's contacts at the bayonett
    2. there are two buttons for AF/MF switch. First at the back site (DMF function). Second at the front left side. Control if you've changed their settings unintentional.

    Works everything else in Manual focus mode?

    Just to be safe, make sure you didn't bump the focus dial on the front of the camera, and make sure you didn't accidentally unlink AF from the shutter in the menus.

    I bought that from Willoughby's in January, I guess I'll have to contact them first.
    I did check every setting and the auto focus will just click but no focus motion of the lenses. I also double check by putting the lenses on my Minolta 7D, they work just fine.

    Thanks to Fuzzphoto at the Dyxum site, I did a complete system reset and it worked!
    Thank you everyone for helping.

    Which means something was changed ... probably in the menu ... as was suggested above.
