Blinking access light and "Busy" sign when attempt to take photo

After inserting replacement CompactFlash card the access light blinks and the "busy" signal comes up. This card has been used before and therefore I am sure it is OK as I have two cards and the same problem is experienced with both. Also when I attempt to download photos onto my PC the "busy" signal comes up and I get the message"another programme is using my camera".

It's driving me mad

If you have a compact flash slot on your computer,put the card in and format it,then put it back in the camera and that should fix it.If you dont have the slot,see if the camera will allow formatting

The Busy light is blinking when I'm tying to download pictures onto PC, how can I fix this?


Did you first install the software on the computer, before you connected the camera to the USB connector? It is needed, so the computer knows what to say to the camera. Only then the camera can communicate with the computer.
Software, came on a cd with the camera, or they gave you a link where to download the software.

HP photosmart C4580 on/off button flashes alternately with wireless(blue) light. can't switch off, cant perform power reset, can't replace cartridges, can't do anything! rod


Remove any memory cards, unplug the unit for 5 minutes and re-power the unit.
If the problem persists, post a reply to this post.
Power blinking is almost always a memory card issue unless the unit is otherwise busy.

When the memory card is inserted correctly, the Photo light next to the memory card slots begins to blink. The message Reading... appears on the color graphics display. The status light next to the memory card slots blinks green when the card is being accessed.

Blinking red indicator light


Hey pollyannac,
The red blinking light probably means either the flash is recharging, or the camera buffer is full and it is writing files to your memory card which the lcd monitor should read Busy while the camera is writing the files. If it is the flash recharging then you could try using more powerful batteries such as the Canon NiMH AA batteries. If the problem ends up being the camera is writing images to the memory card you could try getting a memory card that has a high write speed. These memory card are usually more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

This is not a direct solution, but I find that my image transfers are much faster when I pull out the CompactFlash card and put it in a card reader to pull the imagery off.

With respect to the actual problem, try "rebooting" your camera (switch off, then on) and/or reseating the USB connector.
