Question about Nikon Lite Touch Zoom 140 ED/QD 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Cannot Reset Camera

After someone took a picture of my family and gave me my camera back, I was able to shut it off. The next time I turned it on, the display was flashing as it does when the battery has gone low/dead. So, as I usually do, I installed a new battery (after taking out the old battery and letting the camera completely shut down). The camera turns on, displays all zeros for the date and 3 for the picture number I'm on (just put in a new roll of film and took 2 pictures). If I try to close the camera, take a picture, or anything, the display starts to flash again and the camera sounds like it's processing. No matter how long I wait without a battery installed and then put a new one in, it does the same behavior. I cannot even close the camera. Note that it is a Nikon Lifetouch Zoom 150 ED, and it is about two years old. I take superb care of it.....never has been dropped, left in a hot car, etc. Please help as I take a lot of pictures.

You might want to check the position of the aperture ring on the lens. If it is not set at the highest number, ( IE smallest aperture, f22,f32 ), then the camera will display that error message

SOURCE: nikon n75 problem loading film

I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).

I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.

When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.

I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.

After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!

By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.

I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

I bought this camera at Value Village for $1.99. It came up with an E. I assumed this was an E for empty. I loaded a film and it is fine.

SOURCE: 'Err' & 'E"

Is the film loaded correctly? Have you tried reloading it? Also is it flashing DX too? That would mean the film speed is not DX coded so you need to set the film speed manually.

It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

No. You just rewound the film. The pictures you took are safe, but you probably 'lost' the rest of the film you did not shoot.

For the price of the repair from a camera shop, it would be cheaper to buy a new camera,

This camera is less that £100, so to get the problem looked at by a shop would cost more than it is worth,
This would be a false economy. and it could faulter again in 3 weeks time.

You could take the camera to a shop and they would be able to get the pictures off for you, for a fee.

Spending £50 to get the pic's back, seems sensible to me.

But to spend another £50 to £100 to get the camera repaired, in my eyes is wasting money.

You might aswel get the pictures off the camera, and buy a new camera.

This is the best solution, from my point of view.

Hope this helps you decide

Can't close door after loading film.

sounds like the door latch broke. (tape) Canon will only replace/upgrade not repair.
ours cracked after a drop then broke replacing the film.

Won't take picture though I replaced battery.

Even though it was cushioned somewhat the camera took enough damage to jam something. The flashing symbols are a generic error code it could mean the shutter, zoom, film transport, flash, or some combination of these system are not working (sorry but without tearing the camera apart I can't narrow the problem any further)

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.

The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.

i think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.

Flashing H

I have the same problem. The problem is with the zoom. When you turn your camera on, before shooting a picture, zoom slightly (but do not return to the initiall zoom setting) and shoot your picture. It works.If you need to zoom more, don't worry, any zoom change will alow you to take as many pictures as you want.The camera displays H only if you shoot a picture after turning on your camera, without previously zooming in and out outside the automatic zoom setting.

U4--what does this mean?

U1-U9: these are technician codes indicating that there is a malfunction in the zoom mechanism of your camera, most likely electronic in nature - a defective IC chip and/or bad circuit board. Repair cost would easily exceed the value of the camera. You should be aware that, just as with today's small digital cameras, both mechanics and electronics of smaller point-and-shoot 35mm cameras consist for the most part of light-duty plastic and fragile electronics. If they last a couple of years they're doing well.
