Sony DSC-F828 Self-Diagnosis Display

The Sony DSC-F828 digital still camera has a self-diagnosis display function. This function display the current state of the camcorder as a 5-digit code (a combination of a letter and numbers) on the screen. If a 5-digital code is displayed, check the following list of error message codes. The last two digitals (indicated by xx) differ depending on the state of your camera.

If the error code starts with a 'c' character (e.g. C:xx:xx), then you can service the camcorder yourself. If the error code starts with an 'E' character (e.g. E:xx:xx), then you will need to contact your Sony dealer or local authorized Sony service facility to have your camcorder serviced.
