Here's what's worked for me with an A700 camera error steady shot problem.
With no lens attached and body cap on; Turn on camera and turn off steady shot. Then turn off camera and remove battery. Place one or two silica bags in the battery compartment and close compartment. Place camera body in a freezer bag and siphon out air and seal. Place in freezer for a week to ten days. Remove from freezer and allow to warm up overnight. Remove silica bags put in battery, turn on.
The internal battery or capacitor that maintains settings and date during battery changes needs to run down for this to work. I suspect the cause for the hang up was static electricity.

I had this error after a relatively gentle drop - it was a couple of days before an overseas trip which I really needed a camera for. So I picked up another A58 on ebay for less than the price I was quoted for a repair. When I got back I tried the faulty one to see if I could work out what to do with it - and it worked. No error message, steadyshot functioning fine. I have no idea how it got fixed, but I thought you'd like to know that the fault is not always terminal!
