    I am having the same problem, but I don't know what a "codec" is.  Too, I have "connecting" on the LCD and it goes nowhere...I left it alone like that all day and it still says "connecting"

THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW...PART2. fUJI FINEPIX/ SAMSUNG DIGIMAX


The headache that is "ERROR 99".
The common, works for everything, general fault code.
Doesn't tell you alot in the manual, except consult your nearest dealer...
Fantastic...

So, what does it refer to??
Well, Your camera works to a program and parameters and if one of these goes down and the cause cannot be isolated by the software then a fall back, general, fault code will apply. error 99..
If its a lens issue with communication then try a different lens to isolate the fault. Clean the contacts with lint free cloth. Don't use solvents as the contacts are gold plated and solvents will remove the plating and then you will be in trouble..
Error 99 could mean anything so try to isolate the fault by adjusting settings etc or replacing the batteries (main battery and c-mos battery).
Finding out what,where, why and when is how I start with Error 99 so as much info as possible.
Power loss/drain is a usual common fault. Mainly to do with the flash.
It won't pop up, won't fire etc..
The "Busy" sign is the give away. You press the shutter button and the busy sign flashes (sometimes for ages and then still nothing) Its trying to charge the flash but there is a problem with the circuit or components. Whilst this is happening power is being diverted from other circuits and causing more issues..
There could be thousands of reasons why.
Replacing the flash capacitor has always worked for me. It's a battery with an extremely fast discharge rate and charge rate. It wears out...Quicker than you think.
Don't forget everything made today is from the cheapest manufacturer. made with cheap materials for the disposable, throw away world of today.

Red and green flashing lights on 18v lxt charger


Batteries don't always look degraded but if they've been in use for a while or have a bad cell, they will show up bad on the charger and it won't charge them. The only way to test the batteries is to try to charge them on another charger. If the batteries show defective on another charger, they are bad and you'll have to replace them. Also try to charge some batteries you know to be good on your charger to see if it's the problem. If your batteries charge on another charger, your current charger is bad and they don't have any replaceable parts in them so you'd be looking at replacing it.

DCR-SR42 Camcorder does not power up


I think AC power charger of your camera got defective first and later on battery lost its charge so no power for camera now to power up.
Try to borrow same charged battery from friend. neighbors etc and test your camera.
If camera power up, it is sure that charger has gone and you need new one.
let me know in that case to guide you further.
