Question about Cameras

Why does my Epic 1080 camera cut off with a loud beep?

Tried two different SD cards and new batteries. Can only get a few minutes of recording time before it cuts off.

    This camera uses 3 AAA batteries. I did notice that when I heard the loud beep that the battery indicator on the display was flashing. I would think you could get more that a few minutes recording time out of new batteries.

Hi Roger, Are you using name brand alkaline batteries or some generic brand that cost $2.00 per case ?? If you are using high quality batteries then the camera has a serious problem.

Testimonial: "I believe it was the batteries. I purchased some re-chargeable NiCd batteries and was able to get much longer recording time. Thanks."

SOURCE: my samsung Digimax D53 beeps 3 times when i try turning it on

Mine is not exactly a solution...I just wanted to share my experience with this very same problem over the past 3 days. Nothing worked, new batteries...newly charged batteries. So I brought the camera to work this morning, hoping my boss would be able to help me solve this problem. And all of a sudden it worked on its own ater I tried turning it on for about the 75th time. Has anyone figured out why the camera is doing this?

SOURCE: SD card rejection

I have seen SD cards go defective. Also, enquire to the manufacture of the camera or at least the dealer to make sure that the model of SD card that you have is compatible. I have seen compatiblity issues with particular SD card types on specific models.

SOURCE: Camera won't record on SD card

SD cards have become the industry standard....but beware...there are SD cards NOT backward compatible...i.e.,some cams won't take 2GB or larger; then there is SDHC; SDHC(HD); RUNS FROM 512G thru 32GB HC/HD; ECT...check your cams manual for SD card compatibility.

Why is it displaying "no SD" message?

yes, unless two different sd cards could go bad at same time. Bummer.

Have install a 32gig sd card, when recording only goes for 23 minutes then shuts off, how do i fix?

What make and model camera?

Some makers limit their primarily still cameras to record only about 20 minutes at a time so they get taxed at a lower rate.

Sd card is locked ,tried two different cards. how do I unlock sd cards

There is a small slider on the thin side of the card for lock/unlocking.If you have tried two new cards then the camera probably has a fault with it's detection sensor.That's a job for a camera tech.

I tried contacting the Nikon tech support,infortunately they were unable to answer my question.The D5000 has a movie mode; with the camera came a 'pq1 4GB SD HC card'.According to the manual I can...

The five-minute limit has nothing to do with the memory card or the video resolution. In some parts of the world video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. Cameras that can only record videos up to five minutes in length are not considered video cameras and thus are taxed at the lower rate.

When was the last time you saw a movie or TV scene that was five minutes long without any cuts or breaks? It doesn't happen often and very few people find the five-minute limit restrictive.

Video quality is a very subjective thing. The quality is better than that of almost all compact still and video cameras. It's not as good as professional-quality video cameras. Video has a different "feel" from film --- but which is better?

Since the recording length doesn't depend on the resolution, I'd suggest you always record at the largest resolution. Videos can always be shrunk in size --- they can't be expanded.

New Jazz DV150. Installed new batteries (tested) and SD card (tried switch in both locations). Powers on, says "Read card....", "Goodbye", powers off.

HI, I just got off the phone with a very nice man in NJ at Digitac. He walked me through a few fixes: Try a different SD card, clear SD card, put SD card in and then start camera, start camera and then put SD card in. None worked, so he said something is wrong with the camera computer and I will have to send the camera in for warranty work.

Can not record to sd card


Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Try a different SD card & a
lways check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Will not take more than a few pictures.

I had the same problem using a 8Gb SDHC card. I replaced it with a SanDisk 4Gb SDHC card and the problem hasn't reoccurred.

Seems these cameras don't like "cheap" SD cards.

I have the SD-1. It stops recording on my 8gb after only 43 min

Try formatting the card while its in the camcorder, this might sort the problem for you, also look in the camera's menu to see if its restricted to a certain amount of used memory at once, basically return the camera to factory settings.
I find a lot of camera's don't like certain SD cards anyway even if the camera says it supports them, Sandisc are making just about the best SD cards at the moment

kind regards

Difference between MPEG2 and MPEG4

To achieve MPEG2 video performance, large amounts of data must be written to the SD Memory Card in real time. The read and write speed of the SD Memory Card may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, so we recommend using Panasonic SD Memory Cards with the high-speed transmission rate of 10MB per second (SD Memory Cards that are 256MB* or higher have a transmission rate of 10MB per second). * FINE Mode recording (High image quality 704 x 480 pixels) recording requires an SD Memory Card that is 256MB* or higher. * NORM Mode recording (Normal image quality 352 x 480 pixels) recording requires an SD Memory Card that is 32MB* or higher.
