ERROR CODE 0x5b

I used my camera everyday for about a year until this code came up: ERROR CODE 0x5b. Does anyone know what it means or how to fix it? Nothing can be done when it comes up, you have to turn off the camera and turn it back on. But when you press the shutter again, it flashes up. Any help very very welcome!! :)

Camera error code =0x5b


Usually error codes (maybe not 0x5b) are lens comunication problems and can be fixed by removing the lens and reattaching and make a power reset.

If the problem still persists a service may be required.

Good luck

I just bought,last August, a Tasco Digital Trail Camera - 119223C . Took pictures until Jaunary 2011, my camera display shows Loc and the SD Card flashes. The instruction manual does not reference this setup code. Does anyone know what 'Loc' means? I tried to reformat card, I also so not get a Y/N option for formatting. I bought a new card and changed batteries. no change!

Moultrie DGS160 Game Camera Error 20000


Forget calling Moultrie...I think their answering system is permantly set for "off-hour" times...you may have to e-mail them several times be fore (after4-5 days they get back to you.
You're error should read error"0200000"...flash error or flash charging...getting this during system diagnosis probably is that you failed to cover sensor during ck.
I f this is a constant error...turn cam on; remove batteries; turn system off; insert batteries and try again. .

Error 0X5b


Такая же фигня. Фотал нормально. Отключил автофокус, потому что фотал летящих птиц. Две фотки сделал и на третьей выскочила ошибка Camera errop code 0x58 . Выключение и вытаскивание аккумулятора не помогло. Вкл/выкл. автофокуса тоже. Не знаю, что делать. Завтра понесу в сервисный центр сдавать. :( Грустно.

Error 0x57


The 0x5b error code indicates that the amount of light passing through the aperture lens is not being controlled by the F-Stop selected. error can be fixed. check out quote at www.teleplancamerarepair.com
Another thing that happens when this error is present.
When you raise the camera up to horizontal position and try to take a picture and you get the error code and again it shuts down.Tthe system is being saturated with high light levels indicating the AV drive unit which is not doing its job and controlling the aperture of the lens. This can be fixed.

The code means that the memory is full. Clear your memory, reset your camera and try again. You can download a manual at www.moultriefeeders.com that will help you.

HP Photo Smart 315 Digital camera


Hey TandN,
I am not familiar with this error code for this camera, but for other HP camera models this error code would mean you have an imaging task error which means you either have a corrupted file on your memory card or your memory card needs to be formatted. I would try formatting the camera first, but remember this does delete any images on the card so upload any you can to your computer first. If this doesn't work I would try resetting the camera back to the factory settings by removing the batteries (with the ac adapter not attached to the camera) for at least two minutes, and then reinsert them. After resetting the camera you will need to reset the cameras' date and time. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Sony DSLR-A100, error code 0x5b


Same here. My camera gives me the same error code unless I shoot with the largest aperture/smallest F-number.

error code e18 means that the focus motor gears a jammed, dirt or grain of sand in them. you can try to fix it by gently banging the camera on somthing soft, their are also instructions on web on how to disasemble and fix this fault. BUT unless you have some skills, the right tools and conditions i would not attempt it. leave it to the experts
