Re: writing to memory card was not completed correctly on a6000.

Certainly, something seems to be screwed up somewhere.

 

Just to be certain that everything is ok with the camera's settings, try leaving the battery out for a full 24 hours. That should fully deplete the camera's internal battery. When you insert the battery and turn the camera on, it should prompt you for the date and time. If it doesn't you didn't leave the battery out long enough, but 24 hours should do it.

Hi angelgaddi,

 

Welcome to the Sony Community!

 

As TCav suggested, a power reset would be advisable. You can also reset it by removing the battery and leaving the camera switched On for about a minute or two. As for the firmware update, remove the memory card and set the USB Connection setting of the camera to Mass Storage. Turn the camera off and restart your computer before connecting the camera and starting the update. 

 

If the issues persist, we recommend sending your camera in for evaluation and service.

 

For further assistance regarding your concern, please contact the Sony offices/Sony representative offices nearest to your place of residence in Asia Pacific region through http://www.sony-asia.com/countryselector.html?hpid=countryselector:AsiaPacific. Due to proximity, they are in a better position to respond to your questions or concerns.

 

If my post answers your question, please mark it as "Accept as Solution". Thanks_Mitch
