SOURCE: memory card error - E50

Error Code "E50" (CF card formatting error) When a camera error occurs, an error code like "Exx" will be displayed, where the x's represent numbers. The "E50" error code indicates formatting a CF card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another CF card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. If the same error occurs when you are using the CF card supplied with the camera, please contact the retailer where you purchased the camera or the nearest Canon service center. If the error code is displayed right after you took a picture, the image may not have been recorded. Switch the camera to playback mode to check if it was recorded. Precautions for handling a CF card: - Do not remove a CF card or disconnect the camera's power source while the camera is recording, loading, or erasing data on a CF card. - CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or vibration. - Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card. - Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage. - Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature area and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have evaporated completely. - Do not use or store CF cards in the locations subject to dust or sand, high humidity, or high temperatures.

SOURCE: Lens Error - Restart Camera : Lens remains in extended position.

Hey,

I had the same problem as everyone else regarding the error that would pop up stating that there was a lens error. I had the camera in my pocket when I went to a hockey game, pulled it out to take a picture, and it didn't work. Needless to say I was pissed because I expected far more from Canon. I was just about to go and buy a new camera, and figured that I would try to troubleshoot the problem and stumbled upon this site. Someone suggested turning the camera on and off while twisting the lens, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it.

Before trying this, my lens would not retract all the way, the cover would not shut, the image was blurry, and I could not zoom in at all or the camera would show the error.

So, I tried the "twisting" solution, and it wasn't working, but I think I was being too delicate with it. I put a little more pressure on it and gave it a good twist. There was a clicking noise as others have said, but in the end, it worked after about 2 or 3 minutes of messing with it. No my lens goes down, the cover shuts and its clear as a bell. Not sure if this is a recurring problem as it appears to be a common problem, I fully suggest trying this before you send it off to get it fixed for a ridiculous amount of money.

Best of luck

SOURCE: Lens Error - Restart Camera : Lens remains in extended position.

I had the same problem with the same camera. Ended up twisting the lens by hand back and forth while powering the camera on and off till the lens pins finally realined and let it close properly. Took alot of patience and care but has worked since. Usual cause of this problem is powering camera while the lens is blocked from extending, ie in a case, laying on its face etc.

Camera error appears after pressing button


If you have a camera error, or a system error, you should switch of the camera, remove the battery and reinsert the battery, before switching it on again. If this happens frequently you should contact a authorised Sony service centre. While you have the battery out, you could check if the contacts are clean, free and shiny. (on battery and in the camera)

Message on camera screen reads: lens error, restart camera. I have charged the battery, removed and reinserted and same message returns. I am unable to view pictures taken or to take any pictures. ...


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

The compatible batteries for this Camera are NP-FD1, NPBDL.

Please make sure that you're using compatible battery pack.

Remove and reinsert the battery pack, while the Camera is turned off.

Reset the Camera by removing the battery while the Camera is ON and reinsert the battery after a minute and turn on the Camera.

If the issue is not resolved the Camera needs to be serviced, as it will be the issue with the hardware part of the Camera.

What does the error-code E50 means in a crayola Kiddycam 25070?


hi,

The "E50" error code indicates formatting a storage card has failed.I think the e50 error code happens when the camera is reading and/or writing to the CF card when the battery are dead or real low. The camera does not get to finish writing data and leaves an error on the CF card. Use new battery or fully charged battery. I hope this may help you,

regards,

When I switch on my Konica Minolta E50 camera, "Error 2" appears and the lens does not come out. How can I fix it?


Solution for Error 2 on Minolta Dimage E50 is not very ease, anyway, the problem is involving the socket lens control flat. To proceed: remove front screws of camera, then check on left bottom close the lens if the flat socket ir really inserted on his plug. The socket is located under a flat cable coming from the back of camera, it is large about 1,5 cm. To test it you can remove temporally the adesive shield orange pay attention of not damage the flat cable. Otherwise if camera drop down the flat can be damaged and you need to replace the camera lenses.

Lens error 115,1,0,0


Hey Sarchezz,
I can't tell you how much it would cost to get fixed because without looking at the camera itself an authorized service technician would not be able to even guess, but often the price of camera repairs exceeds the value of the camera. A few things I would try first are removing the batteries and letting the camera sit for a minute or two and then reinserting them, remove the batteries and the memory card then reinsert the batteries only which should give you an error message and then reinsert the memory card, and you could also try placing the camera flat on a table and press and hold the shutter button and then turn the camera on. If none of these suggestions work I would have an estimate done by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
