    SAme problem with file error

  • thishereismy Mar 13, 2009

    Same problem. File error when reviewing pictures. I've looked at the files on my computer and there is no data (just however many MBs of zeros). I hoped that the picture would be there somewhere on the card, but I tried an undelete program and still don't see them. The fact that the picture shows on the screen right afterwards makes me think the picture is saved somewhere. Unless these cameras have some built in RAM-like memory for that. Anyone know?

Have a sony dsc-w50 display flashers E:91:01 all the time what does it mean Have not used camera for a while. Flash seems to not work


The problem is with one of the capacitors, Sony can replace it for you at a cost of $80. This error can come, if we click photos continuosly, the capacitor may get heated up. We need to give a gap of 3 to 4 seconds. Time to be given for the flash to get recharged after a click.
Just give a call at Sony help line. 800.222.SONY, they will replace the capacitor.

If its worth the cost, go for the repair, or you can use the device without flash by disabling the flash. At setup just disable the flash and this error wont show up again.

When i on my sony cybershot dsc-w35 a"E:91:01" msg will display in screen,and flash is not working


A letter and number error code of E:61:xx , E:62:xx , or E:91:xx is an indication a malfunction has occurred in the camera. To try resolving any of these error codes, power reset the camera back to the original factory specifications.

I'll forward a link to a page where you can view the information about power resetting the Camera.

Please click on the link to open the page to view the troubleshooting steps.

My Sony DSC S40 Digital Camera is giving problem. I purchased the camera on Sept 2005. Lately i am getting format error. Whenever I click photos I am not able to get my half of the photos. When I try to...


When you disconnect from the computer, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen or do you just yank out the cord? When you yank, most of the time you will corrupt the card and even the camera. You can try to download your pics from the card using a separate card reader or take it to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk and print your pics or even make a cd of them. Then, Check your owner's manual to learn how to reset the camera. After that, format the card in the camera.

File error Sony Cybershot DSC-W120


The LCD screen may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the Camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a Computer.

To play images you have taken on the Camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

It seems that the images are rotated or modified in the Computer.

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage


Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

File Error now shows in camera for rotated photos from PC.


The camera will not display photos that have been edited by something else. Rotating counts as editing. Just opening a photo and then saving it without doing anything else counts as editing.

File error


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
