Minolta Dimage E323 digital camera stys on... System error!

My camera doesn't turn off. Seems the On-Off button is jammed...
The message System error keeps coming on the screen. Can this be fixed? When I press the On button, the camera opens and closes and stays reopened all the time. Is it worth having it fixed in case I can't do it myself or should I buy another one?

SOURCE: fuji finepix A600 camera - Zoom error

I had the same problem turn up after a few weeks. When I used the zoom button, the lens pushed out again and the camera worked normally for that time. I had to go through that procedure every time I turned the camera on.
I then sent it back on warranty and they replaced the lens assembly as well as the mode dial knob etc.
This camera has a 3 year warranty.
good luck...

SOURCE: error code S0042, DIMAGE G600

I had this problem with my 600. I noticed that the end, center, part of the focusing mechanism was slightly out of alignment. (The part that usually sticks out furthest.) Once I straightened that piece, it was able to retract and the camera could be closed. Look at the focusing mechanism from all sides to make sure it is straight. The part was very slightly off, but enough to cause the error. My camera has been working fine since.

SOURCE: i have a D40x Nikon

Hi,

Firstly, Unplug the device and pull out the battery for 30 minutes. Also pull of SD card and other stuff. Put the battery back WITHOUT SD card.

Check, if that could Fix the problem. If yes, then check to make sure the camera should not be in self timer mode.

Now,

If problem still remains, you NEED to send the unit for repair. However, i would like to share some solutions, i saw worked with people who faced same problem :-

1. I just hit the bottom softly with my palm until it made a noise like the shutter was readjusting and now works with no problems!

2. I took the lens off and put it back on and it worked fine.

3. I had exactly the same problem, i tried everything,battery out, sd card out , lens off etc...nothing worked.Completely by chance and irritation i repeatedly pressed the shutter butten over and over
( without the lens attached ) till it didn't react at all.On my LCD i got a normal menu so i put the lens on and bingo it was fixed, still works fine.I think maybe the shutter was out of alignment.


The above one is the most accepted solution on Fixya !!

4. Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

5. I had exactly the same problem with 'Error. Press shutter release button again' and i fixed it!

Here's how I did it.

Get a very small cross head screwdriver (watchmaker size)
A can of WD40
Sticky tape
A good light


Remove the Battery and SD card
Open up the bottom of the D40x putting the small screws onto the sticky tape in order of removal.


You might want to take pic with another camera so you know where all the screws go.
Then remove the metal plate (used for the tripod mount, you will need to remove the back of the D40x as well, it's only 2 screws)

6. Spray a SMALL amount of WD40 onto the red and white gear wheels.
(Don't use so much that it drips down onto the optics, you don't want oil in there!!!)

Put the battery in and hold it down to make contact, put in the sd card and switch on the camera and try the shutter button. (switch it to manual focus or it might try hunting around for ages for focus)

It might start working, if not move the red wheel a few stops and try again.

Once it's lubed up and the wheels move it should be ok.
Keep taking pics until you feel it is ok.

Then reassemble following the screws backwards on the sticky tape.

Enjoy your D40x once again ;-)

If problem still persists, contact NIKON at :-

Hiya, When I turn my camera on it says it has a 'system error' and then turns itself off. Any ideas what I can do? Thanks Its a Konica Minolta DiMage


Hello

Unfortunately a "system error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

However, since Minolta is out of business, you may be hard pressed to actually get this camera repaired.

New memory card will not work but my olds ones do.


Instead of clicking yes at the first prompt, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the instructions from there.

The battery cover is a different issue. But the wavy lines in your photos sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. See this link:
