The message flashing on the camera is "EXP SIM", which indicates that the lighting conditions for the current shot are not optimal for displaying an image on the back screen and the screen is showing an EXPosure SIMulation of what the final picture -should- look like based on the camera's best guess.

SOURCE: memory card not reading in canon a75

So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.

My Samsung star ii phone shows 'insert simcard error' message even when simcard is inserted.

Try to look for a rubber eraser and rub it on the simcard interface. Also, I want to ask if you have dropped your phone which may cause the error. I would also suggest you to change simcard if you get the same error message so we can identify if the problem is on your phone.

Error message on HP 2800 business inkjet, message reads 1% ink left on brand new cartridge


View the user manual here.

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.

Just means your txts on your sms memory is full or unread. You need to change the settings so that you can read messages off the simcard. Either delete or mark them as read.

Canon BubbleJet i70 clatters like a rattlesnake when turned on

Hi, didn't find anything in regards to the error code you mentioned. The flashing error light i did find something on though. The kind of error depends on how often the orange error light flashes (any # from 2 -10). You can read up on it in the user manual. Tom

Cd dvd combo drive

Can you be more specific about which error messages you are getting? This is important because it will tell us whether the laser or motor is burned out, or if you are just being stopped by copy protection.
