Few things are as frustrating as a problem with your camera. And even though Sony DSLR cameras are reliable pieces of equipment for the most part, they could suffer problems from time to time. If you experience a problem with your Sony DSLR camera, you may see an error message on the display screen, or you may experience problems where the camera provides no visual clues. Although the error message may be a little scary to see, at least the message will give you a clue as to the nature of the problem, which is significantly better than the camera giving you no clues. If you see an error message on the screen, use these tips to solve the problem with your Sony DSLR camera.
While shooting in continuous-shot mode or video mode, it’s possible the camera’s internal components may generate heat that could cause damage to the camera.

Turn off the camera for at least 10-15 minutes, allowing the internal components to cool to safe levels.
