I have two problems with my Sony DSC F828:

1) The lense is loose; this seems to be somewhat normal and I should be able to fix this myself
2) This might be due to problem 1): The mode shifts by itself, partiularly during focusing....

Did anybody experience problem 2 or 1 & 2 together?

I am wondering whether I should fix 1) myself or send it in to Sony right away.

My F828 had a loose lens after almost a year. Sent it in on warranty and it worked great. I recentlytraded it in perfect working condition.

Get on Sony's web site and use the free Customer Service chat ( check times of operaration ) service to price a total rehab if you are out of warranty. I believe it is about $150-$175 to make your $900 F828 brand new.

I hope you find this useful. Let us know how you make out.
