Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

My new dual XDMA450 stereo wont turn on. when i take off the face plate the red sensor light is flashing. this only happens when my head lights are on. what problem am i having with my stereo and why


Check your wiring connections. A similar thing started happening to me out of the blue. The unit would work fine for a period of time, and then just shut off for no reason, and I couldn't get it to come back on. The next day, it would come on again when I started the car and stay on for a while, only to shut down again. The red light behind the face plate continually flashed, regardless of whether the receiver was working. In my case, there was something off in my red wire connection. The unit would turn on / shut off when I moving the wires on either side of the connection. I redid the connection, secured it with electrical tape, and the problem has not reoccurred. If the red wire is not the problem in your case, try the black and yellow connections. These appear to be the wires that could cause this to happen. I can't explain why the power kept repeating the power on / off cycle, unless the wires were in just the right position to be moved / jostled slightly while driving. Hope this helps.

I have a DVP642/37 player and after a power outage, the only thing that it will do is flash a red light on the standby button. None of the other buttons work. When I select the DVD player via TV remote,...


Hello
just unplug the DVD player from AC wall power socket, and lst it be in that state for at least 10 minutes and the replug and see whether it helps you. If not, the power supply inverter board of your DVD player is faulty. some fault are repairable, and some others are not. Anyway, it will be best to replace this board as card basis, rather than get it repair. OK.

Sanyo pcl-xu50 flashing red power light when i turn on my projector the light goes green it powers up for about 20 seconds then the power light changes to a red flashing one for about 10 seconds then back...


Projectors shut off when they overheat. They overheat when air does not move through the projector cooling it. This happens when the fans are not working or air filters/vents are not working.
Check to see whether the fans are working. If they are working, open the cover and see whether air filters/vents are covered with dust. If so clean them.

Bluetooth wont charge or power on. when charging the red light comes on. once disconnected from charger it wont come on


Indicator Lights:
1.Headset Status Headset Indicator Light
2.Powering on Steady blue, then intermittent flashes
(changes to standby mode)
3.Powering off Red appears and goes off
4.Standby Blue intermittent flashes
5.Charging battery Red solid light. Light indicator turns off when
battery is fully charged and headset is off.
6.Low battery Triple red flashes
7.Pairing mode Blue/red alternating flashes
8.Missed call Purple flashes. Press the call control button
to cancel flashing light.
9.Incoming call Triple blue flashes when ringing.
Power on and off:
1.Turn on the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows blue. You will hear ascending
tones.
2.Turn off the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows red. You will hear descending
tones. When power is off, indicator stays off.
If none of this is helpful then it may be that your battery is dead, if that is the case then you will need to replace the whole headset. The battery's are not replaceable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Remotes won't connect. put in new batteries, tried pressing red button in side remotes, all 4 blue lights are flashing on both remotes


Hello kellyanne_ma,
The Wii must be searching for remotes before one will connect. If you are trying to connect controller #1 (meaning there are none connected) and it fails, there may be a problem with your Wii.
First, remove power from the Wii by unplugging it. Wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once powered on and you see the health/safety information press and hold the red SYNC button on your Wii for 20 seconds.
Now press the Sync button on the controller and while the blue lights are flashing, press the Sync button on the Wii.
Hopefully, that will connect the controller! If it does not, you may need to contact Nintendo!

My stereo doesn't turn on!


If the red light is flashing, this indicates the unit is getting some sort of power...I assume it is a unit that plugs in to the wall.....
could be a number of things...a component in the unit, the power button not working, or a fuse....its time to take it in.......if it is expensive enough to keep, weigh the cost of the unit against an estimate on the repair job, given to you from a repair shop..then you will know whether or not to proceed, or give up the ghost and buy a new one.

AquaLink RS 4 top lights flashing red bottom lights flash yellow


I don't have the "one-touch", but on the "all-button" there's a hole on the left side of the unit. A paperclip inserted in this hole will reset the unit. I had a problem with the display on mine and this fixed it.

Three red lights


Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. CAUSE: The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. MORE INFORMATION: If you are experiencing this problem, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, first try the following two steps to verify the problem: 1. When you turn on the console, look at the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps in one of the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 906101 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906101/) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is red 906102 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906102/) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is orange 906103 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906103/) Troubleshooting your Xbox 360 Power Supply when the light is not illuminated 2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the problem re-occurs.If your console continues to display three flashing red lights, your console may have to be repaired. If none of these help, pease contact Xbox support at http://xbox.agent.asahost.com/ to talk to a live agent.
