Re: Stuck in docking mode

There may be a small reset-button hidden inside a small hole somewhere that you might push with a paperclip or something. Also make sure the connection plug on your camera isn't damaged. If some pins are shorted out it might fool the camera to believe it's still connected to the computer.

I unplugged my Nikon D80 from the computer without clicking the safe to eject drive button and now it seems to be stuck in PC mode!

Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 20 mins, then replace the battery and go to the Menu setting and set the Date and time.

Will not let me upload pics says camera not connected to usb port

The error indicates that the computer is not getting an understandable signal from the camera (or dock if you are using one). The solution will be in discovering why the signal isn't getting through, or deciding that the camera or dock is defective.

Verify that the camera battery is charged. Then turn all devices (computer, dock and camera) off. Remove every cable and wire between computer and camera. Unplug power to the dock.

Examine each connection carefully. Look for dirt, bent pins, loose connections, or anything "strange". Look at the bottom of camera too, where it sits on the dock.

Reconnect the wires and cables, power everything up and see if any improvement.

If no improvement and you have WinXP or Vista, Do a System Restore back to a date when the camera connection was working. Restart and check for improvement.

If no improvement, check computer update history. Have any Microsoft updates been applied since the last time the camera connection worked? If so back them off and check for improvement.

If no improvement or no MS updates, decide that the camera or dock are defective and return them. Unfortunately, electronics sometimes fail. If you like the camera, give a replacement a chance.

Take the memory card out of the camera and copy the pics through a card reader.

Good Luck

IRIVER E100 stuck. Display "USB

Take out the batteries and hold power button for ten seconds. Replace batteries and see if anythings changed. If not, then plug it into a computers USB port and then hold the power button for ten seconds. Safely Remove from the USB port and then check again. If none of these work, you just have a malfunctioned device and it may cost more to fix it.

Good Luck,

I have a olympus µ720SW, and its stuck on the usb menu, if i try to exit it says "please wait" forever. i can connect it to the computer and that works. but other wise its starts with that...

it would appear that the computer is not installing the right driver for the camera. the driver it needs to install is the usbstor, the same driver that it uses for flash drives. try another usb port, prefer to be direct and not hub.

if that doesnt work, go to device manager and uninstall the driver associated with the device, then unplug and replug the camera back in

Camera does not work

Whenever you pull out a USB drive like that-it will affect your camera and computer sometimes. To remove (i know it was an accident but just as a heads-up) a USB drive safely go to the bottom right hand corner, and press the green arrow which should be ur USB drive. that will unplug it safely. if you don't see that than you can either click on the arrow to find it or it might be a different icon. just scroll over the icons until you find 'Safely Remove Hardware" and there you have it

Why don't you just transfer them onto your memory card? If your computer has an SD slot that would work. In your play mode you would just press menu and then copy to card. Otherwise you are going to have to wait until you get back to your dock with your camera.

HP Digital Camera - M425 - Stuck in review mode, won't switch to capture mode

I just fixed my daughters camera with this problem. First go to the capture mode and see if the reason you are in review mode is because the camera thinks it is docked. If so, look at the dock port on the bottom of the camera. ( May need to magnify it to see in there ) Look for any green corrosion between the contacts. Her's has this corossion between two pairs of the contacts. I took a jewelers screw driver and scraped out the corrosion and then blew canned air in there to remove it. Turned it on and now it works fine. I have a feeling that the battery compartment is venting through this port and the small amount of acid vapor produced as the batteries discharge is causing the contacts to get this corrosion.

Docking station does not synchronise

Possible faulty connection between docking station and camera. Depending on age of the camera- send it back for replacement from the seller or contact Casio. Does this model have a removable memory card? If so invest in a card reader - very cheap and more reliable than docking stations.

"check connections"

I am having a similar problem. I put mine in its dock, connected the USB cable to my computer, and pressed the USB button on the dock. The light turned green and after 30 or so seconds, the message Check Connections came up on the camera.
