Haventaclue8 are certainly more helpful than Sony which took the thing to their lab 3 weeks ago and havent heard from them since....the people at the Sony store never heard of this kind of message so were no help at all...

.....I did rename the file it when I saved it on my computer but I then deleted all files from the recorder to get that space there are no files on the recorder to recognize....I just pressed record to record another message and got this error message...file is damaged...

are there instructions to reset/reformat the recorder somewhere?....for a $300 machine, it whoudl be more reliable and accessible than this....

Hiya HKL1, incase you've still got the problem with your recorder i thought i'd post a solution. I think you may have renamed the folders after saving your data onto your computer, i dont know how i did it but i did! so the recorder isnt recognising the folders as the ones they started with so you have to format/reset the recorder. good luck =)

Everytime I try to print an envelope using my Canon imageRUNNER 1023iF I get an error message. I'm using a Microsoft Works Word Processing program. I have loaded the envelope tray and nothing happens...

To get rid of error, unplug machine.
Sett. the correct paper size ( size of envelope ), paper type (envelope ), both on printer properties ( when you prompted to print ) and on machine ( when you put envelope on bypass, machine auto ask you ).
Do not forget to tell printer that he needs to take paper from bypass ( printer properties )

Hope that helped

My sony ps3 is showing an error message of a corrupt file and it can fix itself but when i try to follow direction it will return to message about corrupt file again. cannot play anything, dvd or games...

System file or data coruption is innevitable. If it is preventing you to make your PS3 work, you'll need to get rid of that corrupted file. To do that you have to format your hardrive, if it won't work try to do a system restore.

Following repair by an anti-virus file UACxitmtbjtwv.dll seems to have been damaged or removed, can you help? I need to replace / repair this file but don't have original discs, can I download? Regards,

I can't find any mention of this dll file anywhere. I believe that what you have is a remnant of a virus. I think it was a program that was set to run when Windows started up that probably kept reinfecting your computer with the virus and now that you have repaired the virus, this program is still trying to start but is missing that file. I would recommend running "msconfig" and going into the startup configuration and seeing if you can find any unfamiliar programs that are loading on startup. It will probably be a trial and error type of troubleshooting where you disable and enable them one at a time and try to find which program is causing that error message for that file when it loads. It could also be under "Start" "All Programs" >"Startup".

Go to regedit (click start then search and enter it there) and do a search for M3PLUGIN.DLL when found delete that registry, then restart your machine. Its missing or damaged and thus unnescessary, no worries whatsoever. have a nice day!

I get an error message everytime I try to record

There is a switch on the VCR that says "tape/other". Change the switch from "other" to "tape" and you should no longer receive this message.

"Invalid Video Found" HDR-CX7 and VRD-MC5 DVD Recorder

The same happend to me. The camera contains informations of videofiles, which are no more present on the camera (were deleted from a computer). You are not able to record in full disk mode, or any other mode, which includes these videos. These missing files can be easily recognised, as the camcorder is not able to play them. Try to get rid of these "files", or ommit them from the recording list.

Can't get rid of E1 error on a Samsung front loader washing mach.

E1 : washing machine has exceeded a check time for fill, heat or empty.

Common causes for this are fill and empty problems, heater fault (or the wiring
to it broken), water pump open circuit (although that would stop the water draining too) Pressure chamber blocked or pressure tubing pipe looped below the pressure bottle, or a sticking eco ball in the sump hose (sludge and grease build up)

This error code is generic and vey common.Since you have tried the remedies.Try getting checked the internal wiring damage by professionals.I hope certainly hope the problem lies there.
