I was taking pictures with my Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera and pressed the shutter release button. It took so long and finally error code 0x56 came up. I tried pressing release again but it’s no good. How to fix this?

The error code might be 0x5b instead of 0x56 as DSLR A100 Digital Camera often has this problem. The error has something to do with the aperture assembly in the camera. 

Check the warranty and if it still covers today's period, then have it checked by bringing it to the shop/store where it was purchased. Before going to the service shop, try fixing it on your own by doing these:

1) Place the camera in A-mode.

2) Shoot an image in a wide open area.

3) Check aperture level position, in case steps 1 and 2 fail.
