    I had the same problem. I was clicking along taking one picture after another with my D70 when all of a sudden the shutter release button stopped working and I got the "For" error message. Tried going to Nikon's website to down suggested firmware upgrade. Couldn't find anything there, In fact, the D70 was not even in their camera listing. So, I tried a different CF card. The D70 said the 'folder contains no images' but the back panel said the card was empty. What's going on here? Nevertheless, I reformatted the card and problem solved. I took some shots with my portrait lens, switched to the stock lens and everything was working again.

If green LED is blinking constantly when camera is turned on, this is a known problem with D70. Upgrade camera firmware from nikonusa.com website.

I got rid of it by turning off the camera, taking out the card, putting it back in, and turning the camera back on.

Canon Rebel XT wont fully come on


Hi

Error 99 is usually a lense error and gives the only real clue as to what is going on with your camera. You can try this simple fix which comes straight from Canon. Follow the steps to help isolate the issue. Note the fact that you are currently not getting the Error 99 is probably a good sign according to the troubleshoot.

To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you do the following:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks.

My pictures won't go on the computer


I also had this problem intermittently. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. Sometime rebooting cured it, sometimes it didn't.
In the end I got frustrated and bought a USB-connected CF-card reader (they're fairly cheap these days) and now if it doesn't work, I just pop the card out (using "eject" button on the bottom) and put it in the card reader into the USB port. It works every time, and is also much faster than the direct-from-camera transfer.

Kodak easyshare c340 wont turn on


My EasyShare was doing the same thing your post describes, which is how I came to be at this website. I tried the one suggestion of turning on camera (I did so to the 'Auto' setting), then pressing the |O|/i button, which is the button below the 'delete' and above 'menu' next to the screen. That didn't work for me. I then tried the suggestion with the other modes on the power dial, no luck.

I then, from the off position, turned the dial the other way, to the 'favorites' icon, and it worked! I didn't have a memory card in at the time, so it made a noise almost like saying "uh-oh", with the message 'no images in favorites'. I then turned it off, then turned it to 'auto' again, good to go! The lens opened, green light remained on in all modes.

If this helps even one person, I'm glad.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

E 18 problem


the E18 means the lens system has a problem. I had it with my S2 and sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Eventually it stopped working. The only solution was sending it to repair, they changed the lens system.

Memory Stick Formatting Error - Sony Cyber Shot DSC T-20


I have had the same problem. Contact your camera via USB to your PC. Click on MENU. You do see "USB Connect" and "folder" at the bottom. Make sure that it stays on "USB Connect" click on round button in the middle and you will get 4 options. It probably stays on AUTO. Select PTP and see what happens. Adobe Photo Album started up and I got to see the pictures till the moment that the stick got the format error. I lost a couple of pictures, but got a lot back.

I'm not sure what the problem is, however realized that if this happens again. Shut your camera. Start it up again. Go into MENU, SET UP, Memory stick tool, chnage Rec folder and create a new. This way you keep the folders smaller and do not loose that many pictures.

I hope that it helps.

Error code messages in the status panel of the Fun! Digital 320 camera.


The following is a listing of the error codes you might see on the status panel of the PhotoMAX Fun! Digital 320 camera: 1.FL - Photo memory is full. You cannot take more photos. Download and then erase the photos in your camera. 2.FE - Flash memory error. A camera hardware error occurred. This can happen when the power is shut off before a photo is completely stored in the camera. Do not shut off the power until the green light comes back on steady after you take a photo. 3.bE - Hardware problem. Turn the power switch on and off and see if the error message disappears. If the error message persists, the camera may need to be replaced. 4.Lo - Battery low. Replace the camera battery as soon as possible. If you continue to use the camera, picture quality will be poor. 5.LL - Low light condition. The camera does not have enough light to take a good photo. Improve the subject lighting if possible. Example: When taking indoor photos, add additional room lighting.
