SOURCE: camera wont work when memory card is inserted

I suggest you try to use a different memory card. If it doesn't happen again then it's probably a bad memory card.

SOURCE: when i insert the memory card the camera freezes.

It sounds as if either the file allocation table or some data on the card has become corrupted.

Have you got access to another camera (friends or family) that you could try it in?

Have you got a card reader on your PC? If so, you should be able to re-format the card using Windows. (Go to My Computer, right-click on the card reader icon and select format)

Hopefully this will cure the problem. If not, you should be able to change it if it is new.

SOURCE: Can't take pictures, camera says it's in DOCKING mode

It sounds like you may have filled the memory car with pictures, and to continue to use it you must delete those which are on the card. I download my pictures to the computer and then I can delete them from the card and start all over again with taking pictures. I may have misunderstood your problem, if so please excuse me!

When i turn on, it says lens error, restart camera - i"ve turned the camera on and off several times and nothing happens, the error message continues to show. I've taken the battery out and put back in but...


Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

There are 2 fixes I know for this you can try.


1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2. If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. You don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the sd card and turn it on one last time.

Lens wil not open. Turn camera on and it gives you a "lens error"


Hi,

The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.


1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Thank you !!

Powers on, lens extends, 3 beeps, lens closes, camera turns off


Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think the camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.

Samsung s1030 will not retract lense and bleeps 3 times then no response - batteries are fully charged


Try hard reset . Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work

Another chance is that lens is struck

* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris

* If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away

* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off

This should work.

Try this alternate solution (got information from HP )

  • Turn off the camera, if possible.
  • If an SD memory card is installed, remove the card.
  • Remove power from the camera as described below:
  1. If you are using only batteries for power, open the battery/memory card door and remove both batteries.
  2. If you are using only the AC power adapter, disconnect it from the camera.
  3. If you are using both batteries and the AC power adapter, remove both batteries and the power adapter.
  • Wait for 15 seconds. Then reinsert the batteries and close the battery/memory card door or reconnect the AC power adapter to the camera. If you are using both batteries and AC power, try each method separately.

  • Turn the camera on and off. If the lens does not retract correctly or the camera does not turn on,


You need to take to service center .


Thanks for using FIxya

Camera freezing


try a new memory card. also try to reformat the memory card. dont take images you care about until resolved.
i would try to remove the battery for about 10 seconds, and then reinstall, then reformat the memory card. if you still have the same issues, replace the memory card. it that does not cure it, you have a warranty repair to manage.
good luck

My camera did the same thing. Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (not sure if this helps, but it worked for me)
5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think for some reason my camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.
