Question about BenQ DC C40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory card and power problem

I have two issues with my camera - I don't know if they are related? First of all, my camera gets through batteries like crazy - a new set of batteries will only take a couple of shots before the camera tells me it is out of power! Also, the camera will only take a couple of shots before it says that the card is full... Both of these problems have been getting progressively worse and now my camera is virtually unusable. I'd be very grateful if anyone had any advice - thanks!

I have a canon 350D and Problem is err99.when I try to snap at wide angle ,it displays err99.

The most common issue that brings about the Err99 is an issue between the lens and the body, but it could actually come from a variety of problems.

Two things you could do:
1) Clean the contact points on both the Camera and your lens (be careful not to get any dirt into your camera - best to hold it in the air facing down when you are cleaning it)
2) Remove your batteries and memory cards (most cameras also have a small battery for the Date/Time), turn the switch on for a minute or so, then turn it off and replace the batteries and memory cards

I know the original 300D and even the 350D had a very limited shutter lifespan, if you've had the camera for a long while and have taken many pictures it is possible that this may be related to your issue.

Normally, you can only insert an SD card one way. Try a different SD card or check to see if the SD card you're using has the "write protect" switch on. If that's not the issue try formatting the card in your PC and then format it in the camera.

I have a new EOS T3i. It's my first digital camera. I took out the battery to preserve it. When I reloaded it, the camera wouldn't let me take any pictures. The message said the card wasn't...

That sounds like an issue with the memory card. Yes you will lose all current photos on it when you format the memory card. It's also safe to leave the battery in the camera as DSLRs don't drain power when the camera isn't in use.

I have a kodak easy share C315 the message keeps telling me to reformat the memory card, I say ok and then it gives me an error. I tried to reformat in the computer but I don;t know how. The memory card is...

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible. If the card you are trying to format is above 2GB, it will be an SDHC card.

What does HR in a Nikon D70 mean?

Hi. HR is an error code which is related to the memory card. It doesn't have exact meaning (as far as I know, its not in the manual and website).

There are several possibilities why you are getting this error. It could be corrupted memory card, damaged pin, loose connection between the memory card and camera, dirty contacts, camera is not giving enough power to memory card, etc...

Some fixes that may work:
- Make sure your battery is fully charged.
- Remove memory card and put it back making sure the connection is not loose.

- Clean the gold contacts using pencil eraser. Remove eraser dust with cotton buds.

- Format the memory card on the camera.

- If all fails, use a different memory card.

Good luck.

When I press Power on top of an A735 it comes on, makes a noise and says "GE Imagination at work" on the screen. That's all folks.--new batteries in it by the way.

May be its a memory card related problem? Remove the memory card and try to power up the camera and let me know the result.

  1. Step one: Reset the camera
    1. If you have an optional memory card installed, remove it. (Although removing an optional memory card is not necessary for performing the reset, it eliminates the memory card as a possible cause of the problem.)

    3. Reinsert the batteries and close the Battery/Memory card door and/or reconnect the HP AC power adapter to the camera.
    4. After verifying that the camera works without an optional memory card, reinsert the card, if you have one.
    Try to turn the camera on. If it now works properly, the camera experienced a temporary electrical problem and should now work properly.

Not powering on

The manual indicates that the green light flashing once indicates that the camera is powering down. (see page 218 lamp indications)

The first thing you can try is to turn off the camera, remove the battery, remove the memory card. Hold for one minute , pop the battery in(but not the memory card) turn on the camera by pressing the power on buttn and holding it for 15 seconds. This will not only reset the camera but also force the motor to retrace/extend the lens if it is a lens related issue that is causing the camera to shut down.

Let me know if you need more help
