Canon 28-105 giving Error message 1 with my 7D... never happened before?


What is the error message? Usually, it is because the contacts have eroded away, or not the correct lens for the camera type. If it's 999 .. usually that is contact error.. cleaning can help.. both at camera and lens. If it's ERR, sometimes, it is the Card... which runs the entire camera. check to see if it's card and go on line to see if there is a new firmware update for you make and model.

E:61:00 error


E 61 00 Difficult to adjust focus Inspect the lens block focus reset sensor
E 61 10 Zoom operations fault Inspect the lens block zoom reset sensor
E 62 00 Steadyshot function does not work well. Inspect pitch angular velocity sensor
E 62 01 Steadyshot function does not work well. Inspect yaw angular velocity sensor

The simple solution to fix that error message was to the let the lens fully extend and give the lens a good whack. Possibly this error message for this means, that the auto focus motor was past the maximum set point.

This may sound crazy and this has not happened since I did this but here is what I did to get rid of that error message. I have not had that problem since but here was my steps:
· Turn the camera off
· Hold the camera face down over a hard surface (Like you are going to take of your desk) with only about half an inch above the surface.

OR reference the video files below for an alternate method.
· Turn the camera on
· Let the lens extend into the hard surface, don't let it extend all the way. Mine retracted slightly and then tried to extend again (let it extend the second time).
· Lift the camera away from the hard surface and notice that the error message is gone.
· Take pictures of your favorite things.

Here is the first alternate method (AVI format)

Good luck.

"No Disc" error message


A no disc error on any electronics device indicates one of three problems. 1. The disc reading lens in the cd/dvd/brd drive has gone out or is dirty. 2. The drive has a "stabilizing" screw that must be tweaked. 3. The disc is not spinning due to a bad motor on the drive or something is blocking it. If you can hear the disc spinning *whizzing sound* its not a motor issue. You can try running a cd lens cleaning disc but if its not registering it probably wont spin, thus wont clean the lens. You can attempt to clean a lens with a cotton Q tip and rubbing alcohol but be warned, touching the lens can scratch it and destroy it. If your object is not under warranty you can have a professional look at the drive to check the tension on screws, this is usually a huge problem found in XBOX 360's. Make sure its not the disc by trying other working games/movies/etc. If all else fails you can always purchase a new dvd/cd/blu ray drive and have it professionally installed. Xbox 360 $20-$40, PS3 $100-$150 Although its not common, another solution is that cables on the drive might be loose, but usually you cannot open the device; the two cables are power approx. 1-1.5 inches long and the output plug which is usually half the size.

This is a common problem with D-90's. Nikon won't admit a problem, until they do not much can be done. I have to pull the battery to make my error message go away! I know this info doesn't help much, but your certainly not alone!

Error message ''Lens error'' on nikon coolpix digital camera


Try cleaning any grit out of the lens mechanism with compressed air and a little wiggling of the lens. If that doesn't do it, the camera needs servicing.

Pop the lens cover off of the transfer roller, clean all the toner debris out of there and replace the lens, put clear tabe on it, and you are good as new!

NECVOX RE-8169DVD ' No Disc' Error Message


Hi

I think you can see the lens of the DVD's laser.  If so get some glass cleaner, and a Q-tip.  Dampen one tip of the Q-tip with the glass cleaner and clean the laser lens.  Use the dry end of the Q-tip to dry the lens
