Apparently often related to a lens motor malfunction. My old 4300 just gave this error for the first time today. The lens extended but made a whirring noise before the message popped up. Nothing I tried would fix it - but after I drove home it worked fine again.

I had a similar problem over a year ago after the camera fell out of my backpack (it was in its own bag but not well padded). When I used it the lens stuck and refused to retract, but I don't recall a "System Error" message. After a few tries, the lens went in and it's been fine since, until today.

Make sure there's nothing (dust, dirt) stuck in the lens barrels. Otherwise, just keep turning it on and off and hope it works.

My camera's reading "disc error". I need to retrieve the pictures


Get a card reader and use it to download the pics to a computer. Then, format the card in the camera to get it to work properly again.

What does read error mean and how to correct it?And get the pictures it seems to have misplaced.


Rhonda, You should remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the card reader of the PC and move all pics to the PC. Then insert the card back into the camera and format it with the camera. Then whatever pics you take will be saved to the camera and be read by it too. Now for some reason the camera can not read the card. And if you want to use it then the camera should be able to read it. To do that you must first move the pics to some other place and once the pics are safe then the card can be forgotten.

When i go back to look at my pictures on my camera some come up as read error


I believe it is your memory card... I hade one do that to me... From what I gather, the card can get a bad spot on it and if taking a picture and you hit that spot it will not take that pic and just say read error... I would invest in another memory card....

XD card picture error


Try to use a card reader instead. They are only a few dollars. I use one all the time, and hardly ever will use the camera on different models I have.
Never delete from the PC to the camera. It can cause corruption. Once corrupted, you may lose all pictures on the card.
Always delete from the camera, unless you will format the card anyway.
Use the camera and try to delete the bad picture from the camera. this may fix the problem, if not, try to read from another camera or a card reader...don't ever delete from another camera or the card reader.

The last is not good, and that means to format the card, and you will lose all which is on the card.
You may try to copy to internal memory.

One more thing... take out the card. reset all in the camera menu. Then reset all the things you like. Put the card in and try to read each picture in play mode only. If one picture is very slow, delete it. This may take some time as corrupted files may read slowly. then try again.
