Please check the following:

1. The camera is too close to the object, can not focus.

2. Too bright or too dark.

Hope this help.

I have a Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D. There are two circumstances where the camera will lock the shutter. One is when the flash memory card is not inserted properly, and the other is when the lens is not attached properly.

I suspect that the Sony Alpha 100 has similiar features.

Check the card by tryingto format it, and check the lens by checking autofocus and autoexposure.

Reattach the lens, reinsert the memory card, turn the power on, remove the lens cap, and some numbers and symbols will be displayed on the lcd panel. If it still does not work, you should return the camera.
