Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks,

KenSolutions

I have a Nikon d3300 that turns off automatically after i take a photo - can you assist


If the screen display is shutting off, that's a normal function. If the camera is entirely shutting off it might be a bad battery or a very weak battery.

Hi, I have a Goodman furnace model GKS91155DXAD. The blower stays on. After turning power off for a few minutes then back on, the draft blower comes on for a few seconds then goes out but the blower...


I would check hot surface ignitor or spark ignitor to make sure they are working. If not then replace them and try again.If ignitor does not come on control board will shut down, try to restart usually try 4-5 times then lock. out. Generally for a preset time then try again. If it has tried to start to many times and failed it will lockout until power is shut off and it can reset. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Canon Powershot SI screen goes black after taking a photo


That sounds like a sticky lens shutter. They usually have to be replaced, as they usually will need parts. When the camera is working look inside the lens and take a picture(with flash turned off). You should see a black shutter door clicking shut in the lens. When the camera acts up, look inside the lens again. If the door is staying shut full time, that is your problem.

Shutter


try this:

1.turn on yer unit

2.press the menu button(if it gives you the "turn power off and on again message just switch to play mode or preview mode and access the menu from there.)

3.select setup(the option with the toolbox icon)

4.select setup 1 (not camera 1 ayt?)

5.select initialize and select OK for every prompt.

you\'ll know if you\'ve sucessfully initialized the camera if it will ask you to set the date and time.



if this does not work.... i guess it would be better to have th unit checked by an authorized serivicer.
