Disabling SteadyShot on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30

After initialisation picture wobbles violently and camera produces a fluttering sound.
This is the steadyshot system out of control. The fluttering is the floating lens making extreme movements.
Error E62:10 is displayed.

To disable Steadyshot system.
Tools:Jewellers screwdriver set. Small bin for fine screws.

Remove the camera front. Five screws, you'll need to work out which because I cannot take photos while I am doing this.
Lift out the imaging block (see photo above) and turn to reveal underside.
Remove the flex ribbon that enters the underside connector. Lift the black bar on the connector and gently pull the ribbon out. Leave ribbon free. This diables the steadyshot floating lens and control so the mechanism cannot function or malfunction any more.

Good news: drain on the battery reduced.
Bad news: E62:10 displayed permanently.
My DSC-T30 is now behaving in all other respects.
Hopes this helps someone..
My next camera will be a Nikon.
