Get the kit changed. That should not happen right out of the box, but make double sure the next time around, you charge the battery completely before using it the first time. Not doing this can cause problems.

SOURCE: It doesn't switch ON many times though the battery is charge

I have the same problem. I can only turn the camera on once and then I have to wait a day before it will turn back on.  I discovered that if I take out the SD card, I can turn the camera on. Then (while the camera is on) I put the SD card back in.  It's a pain in the ****, but it works.

Put in a new set of batteries and then before you do anything else format the SD card using the camera.

If your battery isn't flat, that means it is probably old and defective. That could also be hazardous. The message being displayed is normal if a very large file (e.g. video or very high resolution) is being stored. If not, it could be associated with your bad battery and a power problem.

Looks you have a slow memory card. Nothing wrong, when you use class 2, 4 or 6 in your camera, but it will slow things down sometimes. Not only for sports shooting, 5 or more frames a second, you need a fast card. For Video it is advised to chose fast cards to. Some cameras only manage one shot a second, and that will become word, when a slow memory card is in the camera.
I don't say this is the reason, I only say this could be the reason.

Picture display freezes and can't none of features work


PLEASE see the test and fix it. God bless you

1. Camera won't record photos. Make sure you've selected a photography mode with your camera, rather than a playback mode or a video mode. If your camera's battery power is low, the camera might not be able to record photos.
Additionally, if your camera's internal memory area or your Memory card is full, the camera won't record any more photos.
With some cameras, the internal software only allows a certain number of photos to be recorded on a single memory card because of how the software numbers each photo. Once the camera hits its limit, it won't save any more photos. (This problem is more likely to occur when an older camera is paired with a new, large memory card.)
The battery is the root of most common digital camera issues. Though battery life has been extended as battery and digital camera technologies evolve, no battery lasts forever. When your batteries begin to run out, sometimes your camera responds in wacky ways that may not seem connected. The flash may not come on, the autofocus won't engage as quickly as it did before or the LCD screen will power off intermittently. All of your camera's responsiveness is linked to its battery strength. Change batteries and try to recreate a problem; odds are you won't be able to. It's a good idea to carry a backup battery for cameras that use lithium-ion cells or a pack of spares for cameras that use AA. Watch your battery icon for a general idea of

Hi , I bought an old Nikon Coolpix 4300 today from a Kijiji Seller. I was trying to take macro pictures. After couple of shots camera gave " Please wait for camera to finish recording " message...


Welcome to FixYa.

Hi,

Possible reason why do you get an error " Please wait for camera to finish recording " is accidentally you turn off the camera, or new mode was selected while images are being recorded to memory card. This message automatically clears off the camera display when camera finishes writing data to card.

I suggest that do not turn off the camera,removed the memory card, or removed or disconnectthe power source while the hour glass icon is displayedor while the green autofocus lamp is blinking.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi there, My problem is I have a toppro tpr2000 hd recorder and sometimes when I record and have finished, and press stop I get 'record is finalizing please wait' which then just freezes on the screen....


It won't damage the recording on your recorder it will mean you won't be able to view the disc on a different machine, possibly. The finalizing of a disc ensures the table of contents is recorded on the disc.
Try a better quality disc?

Please wait for camera to finish recording - is the message that we get after we take a picture - the camera locks up at this point - it is in camera mode - need help(nikon coolpix 220)


Is the card cheap? Is the card a class 2 or lower? Is the card full of pictures that you should have downloaded a long time ago? Are your batteries almost depleted? These are things that will slow down a camera.

Camera showing flat batteries


May not work on yours but I have (hopefully had) same issue. I found that it will stay on if you keep pressing shutter to focus or switch straight to video and record - it stays on until you finish recording. I don't know why but after I moved the focus switch from caf to manual, took a couple of pictures and put it back to caf it now stays on.

That was only yesterday though so I cant say its permanently fixed yet.

Let me know if it helps.

Same problem "movie recording disabled"


Scott,
Since this is a new camera, nothing was changed as far as the disc, it should work, has it been switched to "still" for photos, that's the message that comes up when you change it. You shouldn't have to finalize the disc before you shut off the camera, try starting it with another disc then shut it off replace it with your baptism disc and try to preview the video, if it shows you should be able to aad to it or then finalize it.

Some batteries (especially the lower mAh rechargables) don't seem to have enough power. Try putting in a couple of brand-new (non-rechargeable) Duracells, and see if that helps.

NEED TO RECORD NEW ANSWERPHONE MESSAGE ON ONETEL OT150


To record a new OGM, on the Onetel OT150

Press "menu" on the base unit, then "up" once to record OGM 1 or twice to record OGM 2.

Press "OK" The existing OGM will begin to play. Whilst this is playing press and hold "MEMO"

Record your message, speaking close to the base unit. Press "stop" (square) when finished.

If you decided you don't like your message then, repeat the process above but when it tells you to record your own message press "stop" (Square) and the default will be reset.
