Your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I just inserted a new 8GB memory card but it tells me ''OUT OF MEMORY'' I tried to format it but still gives me the same message. Why is that and what can I do about it please?


The memory card you are trying to use in the camera is not supported. This camera is an older technology that can not recognize the large 8 GB memory capacity of the card. In fact, the largest approved card your camera will recognize is 1 GB.

The list of approved memory cards was obtained from the Nikon Site directly, and pasted below for your convenience.

Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 5700:

CompactFlash memory cards:
SanDisk SDCFB series 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, 96 MB, and 128 MB
Lexar Media 4× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 8× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 10× USB series 128 MB and 160 MB
Lexar Media 40x USB WA series 256 MB*
Microtech International Digital Flash Film 1GB*
Delkin eFilm 650MB Pro*
Ritz Big Print 8x 256MB* (Edge Code 0E1B)

Microdrive cards:
DSCM-10512 512 MB
DSCM-11000 1 GB

How do you get the SD card to work? I want the pictures to go on to the card but I don't know how you do that. I stuck the SD card in correctly so there isn't a problem there.

My DXG 503 camera stopped working. When I go to take a picture it says card locked. Which it wasn't. I even bought a new disk for it just in case something went wrong with the disk and even with the new...


Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your camera , the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Used dxg-503 digital camera won't power on even w/new batteries


If this camera has a memory card, remove it and then try turning it on. Sometimes the memory cards make the cameras act different.

If there is no memory card or card is out and you have same problem, you can send it in to DXG company and they will repair it for $50

518 camera DXG


with how you described the issue, there is a possibility that the lens assembly something blocking its operation, you can either shake the camera to check if there are loose parts inside, or carefully open it and check if you have a loose part in the camera.

usually this is caused by the focus or zoom mechanism being derailed. and having it replaired can be the key. but if you have the service manual for the unit that will allow you to open the camera up just by following the lens maintenance section

if you have other questions regarding this or other matter just lemme know.

MY CAMERA WILL NOT TAKE PICTURES, HOWEVER I'M RECEIVING AN MEMORY ERROR MESSAGE


The problem usually relates to using an SD card that is too high in capacity. THE DXG 518 only supports SD cards up to 1 gig in size.

After 2 years, erratic behavior.


Lens unit problem. Either imact or sand etc in the lens zooming gearbox area. Maybe uneconomical to repair on this model if new lens unit has to be installed. ( it is shutting off because the lens does not come on line properly and so the shutter and CCD do not come on line... when this happens camera switches off. )
