Most likely there is a fault in the lens - impact or sand/grit are the most likely cuplrits. It needs to be serviced.

You can try spraying compressed air into the front of the lens assembly, in hope of freeing up the sand/grit that may be hindering the operation. Here is an excellent blog about things you can try to get it working again. If nothing works, and you do decide to have it serviced, get an estimate first. The cost of repair can easily exceed the replacement cost of a new camera.

Empty Tray


@Derekns74 How do you remove the switch? My C3000 also reads "EMPTY TRAY" constantly, even if the tray is empty and clean. It does not display the "EMPTY GROUNDS" error only "EMPTY TRAY"

If I remove the tray it display "TRAY MISSING" but whenever I insert the tray again, it reads "EMPTY TRAY"

On one occasion when our power went out, it fixed the machine, so that it stopped reading "EMPTY TRAY," but after a day or two it stopped working and displayed the same EMPTY TRAY error message again.

My cx3200's control panel reads scanner error. I unlocked the transportation lock, turned off, turned on. It stayed off for about 2 minutes then came right back on. While the error light was off tried to...


The only things that can cause a scanner error on this unit is a complete scanner harware failure or the scanner lock. With the unit on lock the transport lock and unlock it a few times quite forcibly. Then leave it in the unlocked position and power off and on again. If the light returns then at his point I think a new printer will be needed.

When I try to turn my Toshiba L300 Laptop on the battery light flashes and nothing happens.


Here are things to try:
Check the voltage on your power cord--transformer. I think it should be about 18 volts.
The problem sounds like the battery is discharged. If the voltage you are reading is too low or it's not putting out any voltage at all, then your battery may very well be dead.
Try starting with only the AC power and no battery. If it's a battery problem, this might work.
If everything checks out OK, then it might be the power plug on the motherboard or possibly the motherboard itself that is bad.

I have a hp psc 2355 printer everytime i insert


I had the same problem with my HP L7590 All In One. After trying a number of things to reset nothing worked. Then I tried this just as a last resort and it worked.
Insert the/a memory card( it will tell you that you can only use one card at a time).
With the card still in turn off the printer using the power button.
Wait for 30 seconds then turn power on again.
The screen should say reading card. So wait for it to finish reading and all should be fixed.
If this does not work, try again using a different card.
good luck

Send me Kudos if it works.

Lens error


The same thing happened to my camera, searching on the net for an answer and i found this. Strange, but it worked. Set your camera on a flat surface with the lens facing up. Tap it a few times and try again. Sounds silly but it worked!

Lcd reads system error


Apparently often related to a lens motor malfunction. My old 4300 just gave this error for the first time today. The lens extended but made a whirring noise before the message popped up. Nothing I tried would fix it - but after I drove home it worked fine again.

I had a similar problem over a year ago after the camera fell out of my backpack (it was in its own bag but not well padded). When I used it the lens stuck and refused to retract, but I don't recall a "System Error" message. After a few tries, the lens went in and it's been fine since, until today.

Make sure there's nothing (dust, dirt) stuck in the lens barrels. Otherwise, just keep turning it on and off and hope it works.
