I'm not able to erase the internal memory of my Moultrie Camera. When I try I continue to get the "redo" message. When I go through the trouble shooting I get error code 000400. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I had this same camera 3 different times! I would get all kinds of crazy error codes I could never fix. My best advice is to send it back if still under warranty and they will replace it like they did mine 3 times.

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.
Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.
...Actually it probably says error code 020000...flash test. Other error codes: 6 digits in codes: left to right digits; 1- Battery Test 0= Pass; 1= Fail ( batteries have to be good and in place even if using power supply (100000) 2=Flash Test/ Flash Charging 0=Pass; 1= Fail (020000) 3= IR Sensor Test 0= Pass; 3= Fail (003000) 4= Camera Mod Test 0= Pass; 4= Fail (000400) 5= Memory Test 0= Memory o.k. or no sd card; (000000) 5= Memory Full (000050) 6= SD card locked (000060) 7= SD card damaged (000070) 8= Comms Error (000080) 6= Clock Test 0= Pass; 9= Fail (000009) ALL SYSTEMS OK= 000000, GOOD
WHEN PERFORMING THESE TESTS, FOR THE FLASH TO TEST OK YOU HAVE TO COVER LIGHT SENSORS small glass items each side of lens.If you still have error, install good batteries, power on, drop batteries out, turn unit off, reinstall batteries and turn on again....if all this, you still have error, you probably have bad flash unit.
this can't be an error code; error codes are in the format of 000000...100000=bat.test(0=pass;1=failed);020000=flash test/charging(0=pass;2=fail);003000=IR Sensor Test(0=pass;3=fail);000400=Camera Mod Test(0=pass;4-fail);000050=Memory Test.In this digit there are several codes...(0=memory ok/no sd card;5=memory full;6=SDcard locked;7=SDcard damaged;8= comms error)last digit,000006=Clock Test(0=pass;9=fail). Are you sure this # is not preceeded by an "E", WOULD BE # OF EVENTS SINCE THEY WERE LAST CLEARED. Ron L.
ERROR CODE 000480 ? If this is correct,it relates to: Camera Mod test failed;(4); and under Memory Test, 8= Comms Error.New batteries(good ones) may fix it... It' not communicating with memory card..ck it's inserted good..press down until it stays down(press again and it will pop up. Follow instructions on deleting internal memory before installing SDcard. Also, make sure cam supports kind of card you're using..at 4gb and larger, they become confusing;i.e., 4/8/16mb...older cams won't support some of these. Also there are HC(high capacity); HD(high definition)don't work in these cams.. I posted this for a fix a few days ago, and it turned out to be brand new bad batteries.
Before installing a sd card, internal memory MUST be erased. From setup,use the up/down buttons near the select button until the display reads "ERASE ALL PICS(MEMORY)? NO" toggle up or down button to get"YES", press the select button and wait until until it says "DONE".
Go to setup screen, power off, intall sd card...should be good to go.
I'm not able to erase the internal memory on my moultree trail camera. When it asks if I want to erase the memory I answer yes and it eventually says redo. I went through the diagnostic test and it identified error code 000400. I no longer have my owners manual and was hoping to go online to find the solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This error message indicates that the internal memory in the camera requires formatting or is corrupt. You must format the internal memory.
CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a memory card during formatting may damage the card.
(Formatting internal memory also erases email addresses and album names. To restore addresses and albums, see Kodak EasyShare software Help.)
