Cannot get the card to work properly

Accidentally I openned the card door and slipped it out, after that I introduced the card again and closed the door and then I couldnt get the camera to work since it didnt read the card. What can i Do ? I am trying to use a 2gb mem card in my Olympus 740 Ultra Zoom. The format screen comes up when power comes on but the card won't format and gives a "Card Error" message. This is the second card I have tried. Will my camera not work with a card of the 2gb size? I can find no reference on line or in the Operating instructions on this .

HI,

Please follow the following steps to fix the problem:

1)Go HERE to download the program "Card Wiper"


2) run the program and choose the SM card to WIPE. It fills Zero's into it and thus likes LOW LEVEL FORMAT the SM card.


3) After wiping the card, insert the card into your camera.


4)The camera should display "cannot initiate the card" or so (not CARD ERROR!!!), and then you should probably format the card using your cam and make the card alive again.


Goodluck..

JimmieReb,

Try formatting your original card in a PC - use FAT file system.

Then re-insert it into the Camera.

It sounds like the gears are stripped out when the door is trying to come up


It could be. As I recall, the gears are nylon composite gears so they could be stripped out.

First, check the force adjustments to be sure they are adjusted correctly. If the UP force is not adjusted properly, the mechanism could be slipping and the door not opening. Try adjusting it to see if the door will open and close properly. The DOWN force adjustment is for making sure the door seats properly and should not impact the door closing unless you have it set too high, in which case it could be trying to exert excessive force on the door when closed.

If these simple fixes do not work, look at the owners and parts manual you received with the opener, or check on line to see the exploded parts manual page from Chamberlain and see if the gears are available before you attempt to dismantle your opener. If you don't have experience in mechanical repairs, or the opener is old, it may behoove you to purchase a new opener on sale with a new warranty.

Usually, gears that strip are from a door that is too heavy for the opener, an opener that is of insufficient power for the door, a door that is not properly adjusted and places too much strain on the opener, or an improperly adjusted opener.

Dropped my Leica


Hi,

Try the steps given below:
1 Remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should work.
2 The next thing to try is examining both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors that activates when the doors are closed. It will be a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be a jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.

If you still face the problem then there is some internal problem in camera, you need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

Freezer door was accidentally left open for about one hour. Now the refrigerator and freezer are not cooling.


If the freezer or fridge door remains open for one hour or few more hours by mistake, then to again get to its proper cooling cycle, it requires approx another 24 hours.And in that also, dont open the refrigerators doors for few hours.If you open, close it quickly.Once it cooling cycle again gets set, then you can use it like you use regularly.But approx it takes 24 hours to get proper cooling.-------- ------------------ But if its already more then 24 hours and there is very low cooling, then it can be internal defrost cycle issue.You will have to do manual reset procedure.The manual reset procedure is as follows:-------- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check,it will get set to its cooling cycle and work as normal.------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My kenmore 46745 or 46749 (both models listed on the manual) door is jammed. I accidentally opened the oven door, stopping a cleaning cycle after only 15 seconds, and now the door will not close...the lock...


Hi,

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.

Doors won't close


Stick a screw driver in where it would normally wrap around striker at door, pull handle and it should flip open there to allow closing. When working properly, it should snap back on its own when handle pulled so I'd give it lots of lube to see if it will start working properly.

Fujufilm S700 won't power on. New batteries and are in correctly. Battery door closed properly, however, the door covering the SD is broken in half. Will this cause the camera not to power on?


Yes it will. The door activates a micro switch that cuts power to the camera when open to prevent accidental removal of the card and loss of pictures stored on the card. You can bypass this switch with either a solder "bridge" or remove the switch and use a piece of wire to bridge the pads on the board.

The door open by itself


This can be caused by the drive not closing properly. Usually caused by a slipping drive belt or a faulty micro switch.

If it is a slipping drive belt then the draw closes but the laser assembly does not get lifted into place. If the belt is slipping either replace it or try belt anti slip spray.

If the micro switch has failed then the draw closes but the micro switch doesn't tell the CPU that it has closed so it times out and opens again thinking it has failed to load the disk. If the micro switch has failed it either needs cleaning or replacing.

Alternatively you could just replace the whole draw mechanism however this is normally much more expensive. There are other possibilities such as a faulty micro controller causing this but the two above are by far the most likely.

Cannot get the card to work properly


The card should not fall out as they are held in with a spring lock they need a push down to pop up to pull out- so I wonder if you have correctly installed the card ? Have you tried reformat? or another card?
