My camera has been sitting in a drawer since 2005, found it tonight and decided to try take it apart to see if the lens was stuck ( apparently this is a problem with nikon coolpix), but before i did ( couldn't find screwdriver) decided to try gentle brute force. i turned it on and off 6 or 7 times while banging on the body beside the lens (to the left if looking at the screen) and it seems to have worked. Systems Error message has gone and i've taken 20 or so pics. i was actually looking here for a solution earlier today, so here you go guys

Hi I bought a Dyson vacuum a few months ago, of course I did not register it, and it has completely crapped out.

Check where you purchased it and ask. They do not always need the registration. You need your receipt naturally. There is usually a warranty on them. Quite often they want you to register them so they can sell you other items at a later date.

I have a radio shack auvio 40-297 sub woofer that I purchased two years ago and it has NEVER worked, I'm about to toss it away but thought I would question you first (turns on but VERY little sound)

This case (existing but very littleaudio level) is quite strange and has nothing to do with the subwoofer. Maybe the audio signal that comes out from the amplifier has a very low level. What is the amplifier you use and which output do you use? Also make sure that the "subwoofer level" setting at the back of the sub is turned fully clockwise.
At this link you can see 2 suggested solution from RadioShack. Which one do you use?

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

The f9 error code means that you are having door lock mechanism failure or a erc (electronic range control ) problem and needs to be replaced
1st inspect the door latch and ensure that it works properly and is not loose in any way and if this does indeed work properly than you will have to replace the erc ok
Hope this helps

Charged the battery,and the cammera still wont turn on

Hello, Quite possibly the battery is a few years old and has lost the capacity to power the unit on,these type batteries become weak over time and the unit requires quite a bit of power to boot the camera,only solution is try a new battery that has been charged for at least 4 hours.Hope this solves your problem,the battery is very cheap on E-Bay,Battery is KLIC-5001.

Error E18 . What does this mean. Canon camera


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

My camera is write protected

Dear Hannahboggs9,
I am not quite sure of what is the make of your Memory card however most of the memory cards have a small switch on side that could be toggled to make it write protected. I am sending you a link with picture to make it more clear.
See the yellow slide lock on left edge of the above card...

Now if there is no lock on your card or if the above mentioned is not the problem then you might want to try formatting the card using your computer with "FAT" OR "FAT16" file system selected from the drop down (DO NOT SELECT FAT32).

If that too doesn't work then you might want to try with a different memory card.
This issue doesn't seem to be with camera.

In case any further assistance is required please write back and I would be glad to assist.

Error code E 9 means that the connected digital camera/video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing. Have you connected any digital camera or video camera, then please check its compatibility with the printer. If it is not the case, then please reset the printer after unplugging it for 5 minutes and then re-plug it. Also, detach the cartridges and replace them again and see the results.

Put new batteries in doesn't work

I keep getting the same problem myself with particular brands of batteries, if even they are brand new.

Try using Duracell or another brand of batteries and this hopefully, should resolve the issue.
