Remove the batteries wait a few minutes. Put fresh batteries back in and turn the camera on. This resets the camera.Then remove the memory card from the slot from your camera. Then insert back and check you will not be getting this error.
If still there is some problem, take the memory card out and copy the pictures from the memory card to system and then format it. Insert the card back to the camera. You won't get the format error.
Hope this helps.

The lends on my camera will not open. The light comes on in the view screne and shows Error 3 on it. I have no idea what it means. What I meant is that it will not open is that the lends will not open out completly it opens to about a 1/4" to 3/8" and is stuck there. How can I get it to open completly or must I sent it to your shop to get open?
Check memory card from computer with card reader. If that doesn`t help. Try formatting memory card from camera or from computer (it will destroy data on card). Most likely your pictures are alredy lost.
Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. you need professional service to fix it .
Well, you could have a look at , but unless you can get this camera fixed very cheaply or under a very generous 3-year Gateway warranty (which Gateway is not known for), I'd say it's best to cut your losses and go with plan A, getting a replacement. Gateway is about to be sold to Acer, so it's currently at loose ends anyway, and they're notorious for their poor support at the best of times. Digital cameras have come a long way in the past couple of years--I just got a new HP M537 with free 1GB memory card at Staples for $110 that my wife loves. But even if you fixed the Gateway for free you'd have an old unreliable camera waiting for something else to break and guaranteeing lots more missed pictures (BTW, you can get a working DC-T50 on eBay for about 20 bucks). The time to get it fixed was the day after it first malfunctioned.
Enjoy your new camera!
Could be back light has failed[ can you see any feint images at all?
Or a connector has come adrift
or a board failure of some kind.
If the camera if fairly new then get onto Gateway tech support.
If it has no warranty left -I fear the price of a repair will be more than the camera is worth
but you can try for a repair.
