Thi sis a card related error and it can be fixed by removing the batteries from it ..My advice is to remove the card also ..and insert it on a computer (card reader) and see if you can recover the picks and after that format the card ...This error happen on most cameras of this model and has the tendency to repeat..so be sure you always save the pictures periodically to avoid .loosing them ..
They seam to be sensitive about the memory cards..and lock themselves when something is wrong ..
Let me know if it worked..

    If you are using a Fuji card ..change it cause it seams to be particularly sensitive to that type of cards..

    by the way ..when you get the card out ...take a look to see if it is not locked form the side slide ..(if it is a SD card ) ..
    To be honest ..removing and trying to format it ..(even if will take a few times to succeed ) wil fix the issue ..but will get back ...and randomly with no apparent cause..
    Sometimes may be just cause you used it in another camera ..or into computer ..or just cause is locked or for some reason do not make a proper contact and it not sees it proper..

    Tara,
    probably it is the ribbon from the display ...unplugged... in this case you have to open the cam...

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt


If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

I have a d90 nikon. Got the cha error first. Now the screen is a mess of black and grey lines. Is this camera toast.


Hi, Your camera shouldn't be toast, the cha error can be caused by many things. First thing you'll want to do is remove the lens you currently have on it. Then what you'll want to do is hold down the two buttons that have green dots on top of them (they're located on the top of the camera) for 5 seconds, this restores the camera to factory. After that you'll want to go into the menu and then custom controls and then hit reset. That should fix the error most of the time however it can also be caused by certain memory cards. In that case you'll want to save all photos off of the memory card onto a computer and reformat the memory card. If neither of those work for you let me know and I can try and help you troubleshoot more =)

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Nikon D50 Flashes Err and clicks


hi..
This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

thank u
rate me!!

CHA?


I found this answer on the Nikon web site.

3) Camera displays “CHA” in top LCD. The camera has detected an invalid partition type or is not working properly. Reformatting the memory card may allow it to be used. If an approved memory card causes the camera to display the "CHA" indicator contact the memory cards manufacturer for assistance.

Please note that the default disk format used in Windows XP is FAT32 and if a card is formatted with this setting on an XP system, a D1 series camera will report "CHA". Reformat the card as "FAT" to use in the D1 series camera.

NIKON D100 LCD DISPLAY FLASHING CHA ERROR WITH ANY CF 1 GIG


I had the same problem and thought I had looked closely at the pins in CF slot but after finally taking it to a repair shop, the tech showed me a bent pin. It really wasn't that apparent first time around. He told me its a common problem as long as they use the CF cards. I had the pins replaced and my D100 is working great. Best of luck.

No picture, sound ok


I have a similar issue. Sometimes the entire screen goes black and sometimes only one-half - either the top or bottom half goes black. The only solution we have found is to gently tap the TV (usually the front side) and the picture will come back for awhile. It almost seems heat related as it only goes out after the first 10 minutes of use. There must be a fix to this.
