Every time something strange happens to a camera, switch it of and on again. Of one step up. Remover the battery and reinsert it. Next step is to remove both the battery and the memory card. And when you are there, please check if nothing is wrong with the memory card and its contacts. Only a spec of dust in the camera, on one of the contacts, could split the fun.
Check is all contacts (Memory card and battery, and also the ones in the camera) are clean and shiny. Special the contacts on the memory card should be not bent or have a dent.
Try to rescue the pictures on the card to your computer, and when it is in the memory card reader, format the card, with FAT32.
If the card has any defect, your computer will tell you.
If after trying everything here, does not change the situation, please visit your dealer or a certified repair centre. (or start saving for a new camera.
CLEANING of contacts only use a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.

SOURCE: Screen only showing lines. Mem card fine and records.


Just responding to your last comment as I could not get back in to the other one after you accepted. To be honest the screen alone will cost you around £45 ($70) delivered from the internet if you can get one. Nikon have a general policy of issuing supply parts to authorised dealers only and this makes it a bit more awkward to get these screens. They can be got but it might take a while to source one.

If you can source a supplier you could certainly try fitting it yourself. There are several videos on YouTube that would give you a good idea of how to do this. However $70 for a camera like this is a lot considering how much value can be had in the market for a new camera with similar spec.

Guess it will come down to how attached you are to that particular camera! Sometimes Ebay throws up a camera with a good screen that is otherwise for parts but again its a chance to take but you could be lucky and pick something up there for as little as $5 - $10.

Wish you luck anyway and thanks for using FixYa!

Change cartridges

At the head carriage, there as contacts are connected to the ink tank chip when the ink tank installed. At the rear there is a small pcb contact is commonly called the CSIC chip reader. When there is a condition that does Recognized ink tank chip, the first possibility is the ink level reaches the zero point on the chip. For some ARC chips (commonly used in the system CISS), ink level it can be reset to 100% again by pressing the reset button on the chip. If using original chip, make sure first that the contacts on the chip clean of dust and rust. If the brand new original ink tank is installed , still not readable, then chances are the damage / dirty CSIC chip. Extra effort required for the carriage and check this CSIC.

XMp3i is stuck on "powering

Bad TSOP flash chip. No way to fix without disassembling, removing the flash chip, and placing a new flash chip on it. Doing so requires a donor radio (with another issue), and will change your XM Radio ID. You'll also need to have a hot air (or IR) rework station for desoldering the old chip, and a soldering iron for placing the new chip on the radio.
I'd say give pioneer a call since it's a design flaw, and a VERY common issue. My best guess is that it's caused by excessive heat & defective chips.

I keep getting tossed into Protection error or Blue Screen!

The harddrive from another computer, with an O/S installed on it already, is the problem.

Am I to assume the harddrive you're trying to install, has Windows for an O/S?

Microsoft's Users License states, "One GENUINE copy of Windows per One computer"
The genuine copy of Windows on the harddrive you're trying to install, has already been Activated on the computer it came out of.

(Microsoft has a Master disk of each Windows O/S. The copy the user obtains, is a copy made from this disk. It is then a Genuine copy from Microsoft. If it isn't a Genuine copy, it is an illegal copy)

When Windows is installed on a computer, it assigns 'codecs' to major hardware components of the computer.
Think of these 'codecs' as serial numbers, for the hardware components.
(No computer owner personal information is recorded. Just THAT genuine copy of Windows, to THOSE hardware components)

Some of the major components are, Processor, Harddrive, Motherboard, (More specifically the BIOS program and version, that's on the BIOS chip),
and Graphics chip. (GPU)

Change two or more hardware components, and a 'red flag' is put up. 'Codecs' do not match for the AOpen motherboard, and the hardware components on it.
(Different BIOS program, different Processor, and different GPU)
Therefore, it is believed to be installed on more than one computer.

Easiest solution would be to buy a full installation disk of Windows, and install it.
[Also go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, set the first boot device to CDROM]

No, it will not make a difference. I have heard nothing good about the Jet chips. With the mods you have, the factory ECU will work just fine. If you start changing cams, and doing port work, then you may want to get a tunable computer, and have someone with a dyno tune it. Otherwise, you should be fine.

HP 2600 Printer Problems

If this is a reman cartridge or new. Take it back and get a different one. Their is a little chip on the cartridge that may have glue on it, been installed upside down or if it is a reman someone may have forgotten to replace the chip.
You might also want to check where this chip makes contact with the printer to make sure you do not have any tonner dust or have something obstructing the contact between the cartridge and the printer.

Instaling alpine car/cd stereo cda 9807

Its probably your wiring harness that came with the stereo. Which can cause many more problems. alpine changed their wiring harness around that time. But they used the same plug, just wired different. So now there are crossed wires, but the plug fits, causing the amp chip to fry. maybe even further than the amp chip. an amp chip replacement runs about 80$ at a repair shop. if its just that.

Memory Recognition

The BIOS recognizes the same speed chip. Say, "PNY 512mb 333mhz 12ns". If you mix and mismatch, the BIOS won't see it even though your motherboard will take the differant type chips. They should all be the same.
