Is the card cheap? Is the card a class 2 or lower? Is the card full of pictures that you should have downloaded a long time ago? Are your batteries almost depleted? These are things that will slow down a camera.

    Problem Fixed:

    I had the same problem. I would take a picture, the camera saved the image and returned to live view mode (ready to take another picture) and then if i pressed the on/off, play or scene buttons, the camera would show the following error:

    "Please wait for the camera to finish recording"

    I noticed that when I removed the memory card from the camera, it worked as it should (no error). This led me to believe the memory card was faulty, I formatted the memory card and the error went away and the camera operated as it should.

    Hope this works for you.

    I had the problem of the camera shutting down between each shot and giving me the error message: "Please wait for the camera to finish recording" I wasn't sure what to do about "re-formating" the card, so I merely opened the card on my desktop and deleted all the files. Then returned the card to the camera for a test.....Hallelujah! My camera now allows me to take multiple shots without shutdown. Thank You All....!

Camera freezes , battery isn't flat , please wait whilst finishes recording message is sometimes displayed


If your battery isn't flat, that means it is probably old and defective. That could also be hazardous. The message being displayed is normal if a very large file (e.g. video or very high resolution) is being stored. If not, it could be associated with your bad battery and a power problem.

Looks you have a slow memory card. Nothing wrong, when you use class 2, 4 or 6 in your camera, but it will slow things down sometimes. Not only for sports shooting, 5 or more frames a second, you need a fast card. For Video it is advised to chose fast cards to. Some cameras only manage one shot a second, and that will become word, when a slow memory card is in the camera.
I don't say this is the reason, I only say this could be the reason.

Why am i getting ''please wait try again later'' message


Test the remote control. Use the digital camera , point the r control viewing the camera, and with the camerA ON, you must see the LED I.R ON. see the picture. If NOT you must open the remote and clean the keypads from dirty+ and resolder the cold joint from the LED.
try again. However if the LED is o.k read your owner manual download for free go www. fitness.manualsonline.com

Voice message: how do I program my voice message on my unidentified sect 6.0?


Access the answering system from any handset. Wait until the system finishes its announcements, or press 5 (Stop) to skip them.
Press 8 (RecNewGreeting).
Wait for the system to say "Record greeting," then begin speaking.
When you're finished, press 8 to stop recording. The system plays back your new greeting.
To keep this greeting, press End. To re-record it, go back to step 2.

The above is from page 17 of the manual.

Welcome to FixYa.

Hi,

Possible reason why do you get an error " Please wait for camera to finish recording " is accidentally you turn off the camera, or new mode was selected while images are being recorded to memory card. This message automatically clears off the camera display when camera finishes writing data to card.

I suggest that do not turn off the camera,removed the memory card, or removed or disconnectthe power source while the hour glass icon is displayedor while the green autofocus lamp is blinking.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello,

This could be an error on the memory card.
The camera cannot write the picture to the card.

Try this:
Save any photos that you want to keep and format the card in the camera.
If this does not work you may need a new card.

Hope this helps.
