First, the r09 refers to the amount of memory buffer photo storage is available. That's to say that 9 photos can be stored in the memory buffer, while the latest pictures are being written to the slow camera card. It's bursting 9 photos. Depending on your image quality and type, this will be a different number.

Second, make sure you are in the P or Auto mode while testing, or clarify what mode and settings you have. A picture won't take on my D300 if my lighting is too low for my current settings.

When I turn my camera on to view pictures, the red light on the camera in the bottom right corner stays on and I'm not able to view my pictures on my memory card. Can you help me identify the problem?


If one card works and the other doesn't then it sounds like you have a defective SD card. Nothing you can do about this but buy another one and toss it.

This is why you should backup all your photos off the camera and onto permanent storage media.

If you were hoping for a reason to replace/upgrade the camera I think this would qualify. If you want to see if you can save it, find a camera repair shop in your area and at least have it looked at. It may cost you a diagnostic fee but that will give you a better idea of whether it's worth spending the money on.

No picture viewing for my Nikon Coolpix L18 camera


Same thing happened to mine. After researching the cost of a replacement screen, $60.00, I decided to replace the camera with an L20.

Camera still possessed


There is something wrong with the settings of the camera.
When it is on setting or view mode is fine. It is not supposed to take pictures.
Go thru the Menu and pick the way you want your pictures, size and all those details, switch them take pictures and keep switching the settings until you get it right.

My camera was taking 3 pictures at the time, and it was because of the setting was set to do that. Don't be afraid of changing the setting for pictures, you can always change and try different things, digital pictures can be erased right away. So you can try as much as you want.
Try all options in the setting for taking a picture, change a setting, try to take a picture and see what happens. Then try on another setting and so on.
