Sony HDR-FX1000 Lens Error C:32:60 E:62:10 Video

Lens problems with the Sony HDR FX1000 camcorder can manifest in many ways. Most commonly a C 32:60 or E 62:10 lens error message will display. The camcorder may not be focusing properly, not zooming in and out, and there may even be abnormal noises coming from the lens area of the video camera.

This problem may be intermittent and the problem may happen in both manual and auto focus.

Hello my name is Sheryl, I’m one of the Sony technicians at I would like to go over a problem that you may be having focusing with your Sony HDR-FX1000 camcorder.

You may hear unusual sounds coming from the lens area of the camcorder and you may also have problems trying to focus. Sometimes this problem will appear with an error message or error code such C:32:60 or E:61:10. Other error messages that you may see in addition to C:32:60 and E:61:10 are E:61:30, E:62:10 and E:62:20. There may be an on screen error message asking you to reattach the power source.

The first step is to try resetting the camcorder. This is done by removing the power source, such as the battery or AC adapter, waiting a few seconds and then reattaching it. You can also try doing a hard reset, this is done by gently pressing the reset button using a sharp item such as the end of a paperclip. You will know that you have done this correctly if the camcorder prompts you to set the clock.

If the camcorder continues to go into a lens error or is still not focusing properly, then it will need to be repaired professionally by an experienced technician who specializes working on these camcorders.
