If this happens only if you are trying to take videos, then you might be having memory issues. Do you have a memory card inserted on the camera? If there is none, then the camera is using its internal memory which is only 45MB; this is too small if you have stored a lot of pictures on the camera already, thus it runs out of memory easily.

However, if you are using a memory card, try to free up some memory on it since recording videos requires a lot of space and when the camera detected that problem, it automatically shuts itself off. If this does not solve the problem, try to format your SD card using your camera. Just be advised that doing this would delete all stored pictures or videos on the memory so make sure you copy them first on your computer.

To format your memory card,
Tap MENU, then select the "wrench" symbol or the Setup Menu. Then select Format Card. You will be asked to Format the card so just click Yes. Wait for the process to finish and then try taking videos again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

2007 Ford Escape Hybrid Clatter Noise


So being it doesn't clatter in electric mode, a safe assumption is the noise is with the gas motor.

Usually a clattering noise is valvetrain noise, like a lifter not pumping up.

Low oil will cause this.

3 quarts low would probably definitely cause this!

You need to find out why you lost 3 quarts in only 80 miles!

There is a red exclamation point on the camera screen that won't go away. What is the problem?


Just got one of these cameras from a charity shop and after only a short use same problem.
Try connecting camera to PC as an external drive and delete (all) files..... This, too, may not work, in which case reformat the whole drive representing the camera - quick format will probably do.
Once you take a photo the directory path: DCIM/100IMAGE will be recreated.
I'd recommend reformatting quite regularly - after each time you download the photos off the camera.

Red exclamation point on verizon set top box


How to reset your Set Top Box to fix common problems FiOS TV Residential...
Resetting your Router and Set-Top Box can resolve a variety of issues such as:
  • Missing Interactive Media Guide (IMG) or On Demand menu
  • Unresponsive Set-Top Box
  • DVR recording problems
If you are having any of these issues, you may need to reset your Router and Set-Top Box. Will resetting my Set-Top Box erase the selections I have programmed into my remote?
No, all settings and selections you've entered such as device codes, favorite channels, and recent On Demand selections are saved and available after resetting your Set-Top Box.

Resetting your Router and Set-Top Box
Always reset your Router first and then check to see if that resolves the issue. Resetting your router may be all that is needed.
Important note about your router To avoid problems with your FiOS TV service, make sure your router is plugged in and turned on at all times. Even if you are not currently using the Internet, your router still needs be turned on so that FiOS TV can function properly.
To manually reset your router:
  1. Unplug the power cord to your Router for 15 seconds and then plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  2. Wait 30 seconds and then check to see if this resolves the trouble. If you still have the problem, follow the steps below to reset your Set-Top Box.
To manually reset your Set-Top Box:
  1. Unplug the power cord to your Set-Top Box from the electrical outlet for 15 seconds and then plug it back in.

    Note: Don't confuse the power cord that provides electricity to your Set-Top Box with the coaxial cable that is connected to the back of your Set-Top Box. Unplugging the coaxial cable will not reset your Set-Top Box. Since many issues can occur if your coaxial cable is not securely fastened, now would be a good time to check to ensure all connections are securely connected.
  2. Wait for the time to appear on the front of the Set-Top Box, then power it on.
  3. Wait several minutes while the Interactive Media Guide updates.
  4. Check to see if this resolves the trouble. If you still have the problem, your Set-Top Box may need to be re-initialized. Contact the Fiber Solutions Customer Support for further assistance.
I have to reset my Set-Top Box frequently, is this normal?
No, if you routinely have to reset your Set-Top Box more than three times a week, it is likely there is an issue with your Set-Top Box that needs to be resolved. Contact the Fiber Solutions Customer Support for further assistance.

I have loved this camera but everytime I take a flash picture it causes the subjects to close their eyes. I've never had this problem with other cameras. Is the flash not timed properly or is it too...


Are you using the red-eye setting? An initial flash causes the pupils of your subjects to contract, followed by a second full flash 1 second later.

The trouble is that the first flash is bright, and subjects think its all over so they blink, rub their eyes, look away, and even the photographer may be pointing the camera elesewhere by then.

It is better not to use that setting, and fix the red eye afterwards.
With the flash open, hit the right button until the eye icon goes away.

Canon Powershot SD630 video only records a couple seconds


The card you are using is having a hard time keeping up with the video. Have you ever formatted this card before? Suggest trying a format of the card to see if that corrects the problem (NOTE this will also erase the card, so only do this AFTER you've downloaded all the photos/videos to your computer.

Press menu, select the tools menu, then select the item stating the card's capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a low-level format.

If formatting does not correct this, you might want to consider a better/faster card than what you're currently using. Be careful in purchasing though in that I doubt the newer SDHC cards will be compatible with your camera.
