Please help me. my camera is showing error occurred please turn unit off then turn on again

If your camera is a Canon camera 'Google' 'Canon camera error codes' and select the one you are seeing to check if there is a remedy for the problem. You can also try this action - Switch on your camera while the camera is still switched on remove the battery - leave it out for about 2 mins, put the battery back in (still with the camera in the on mode) close the battery door- switch the camera off leave for about 30 secs then switch it on again. Hopefully that may clear things. Still go on line and check the Canon error codes.

Whays the problem

Hi Al
Most computers these days do not use a regular switch to supply power from the battery. The computer is basically in a standby mode and the switch discharges an electrolytic capacitor in the power supply to change the logic 1 to 0 to activate the machine.
These Electro Cap's get damaged over time (they leak or short) and don't store the required charge.
So... if your technically inclined then you could open the machine and look for swollen or leaky Electrolytic Capacitors in the power supply section then unsolder & replace with similar values.

Err99 when taking pics in sun. Taking in side with flash fine, pics outside at night are fine?

Error code 99 indicates detection of a system malfunction. Try switching on the camera and while it is still switched on remove the battery. Leave it for about 30 secs then re-insert the battery once powered up switch the camera off wait 30 secs then switch it on again. This action sometimes will remedy this problem but failing that it may need a visit to the repair shop.

When I try to call from the address book or speed dial it brings up my call log and won't call the number i am trying to call. I have a blackberry pearl 8110

I solved the problem by doing a Hard reset, this means taking the battery out while the phone is still on, leaving it out for 30 seconds, replace the battery, the phone will then turn on, it resets itself and it worked just fine. But I would suggest removing your memory card or saving the pics on it because I think it deleted some pictures on it. But I still don't know what caused it to have this problem in the 1st place, it was like it froze up in the call log mode. Removing the battery did fix it.

I have a locked radio for a 2000 pontiac grand prix thanks to a battery exchange...can anyone help ...the 6 dig code is 292298

Hello! You have done half of the work already! You can take the code, and the VIN to your vehicle; and call your local GM dealership. Tell them that you need the unlock code for the radio, and they will ask you for that information.

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Hope this helps and good luck!
