Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Frozen off etc.

L3200, frozen in off mode. Pulled memory stick from the frozen camera (sanDisk 1.0g, unlocked at all times) and popped it into the SD drive of the pooter and it didn't even recognise the card was there, as I saw the 'please place disk in drive F' prompt. (the SD drive had recognised the 128meg that I have as a backup instantly) Wondering what I should do. Smack it silly? Give it to the dog? Repair shop?

thank you kindly,

When I posted this, I half expected no reply at all, and the other half expected something else. I must say that no part of me expected to be hit with a 'bot program' asking me to sign up for a premium service to solve my problem. Thought this was a Q&A site. Some answer... sheesh. Thanks FixYa.

What size and male of memory card do i need for a coolpix s4000?

The S4000 uses SD cards up to 2GB in size and SDHC cards up to 32GB in size. Don't worry about the make of the card, as long as you stick with the major brands (Lexar, PNY, SanDisk, etc).

HP Photosmart M425, "Card Lock" message, camera

Take the memory card out of your camera. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Frozen, locked up with blinking green light.

If you cannot get to "reset" in the camera menu, then here is how to do a manual reset...remove the card and all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"

I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.

Problem with the date and time settings

Hi Alonzo,

Change the mode setting to Setup. Scroll down to the date menu and set your date and time. That screen should not pop up after that. UNLESS your date battery is toast. If that't the case, replace it.
Let me know if you still have a problem and I'll help you take care of it if possible. Or, if your satisfied, you can rate my solution a fixya.

Unprotect memory card


To set the memory card in unprotected mode, you have to do the following.

On the side of the SD chip, there is a little switch. Shift the switch away from "lock", then insert the card back into the camera.
This unprotects the card. You should now be able to take pictures and videos.
If this does not solve the problem, then it is very likely that the SD card is faulty. I would recommend using Panasonic, Lexar or Sandisk memory cards.

~Lexar SD card

~1 Panasonic SD card

~2 Panasonic SD card

My new 87480 camera does not keep any pictures.


Remember that your camera actually has 2 memories.
You are using an external 2GB SD card, but there is also an on-board internal 32MB SDRAM.

Make sure that you have selected the correct memory in the camera's menu. 32MB is relatively small and may be full if you have selected it by mistake.

Have fun.

Computer won't recognize camera.

I don't know how much of a solution this is (I have the same problem now), but my computer actually has a slot where the memory card can be inserted by itself. It isn't as convenient, but I can transfer pictures directly from the memory card to the computer.

Camera is "frozen"

Use a card reader, in case you cannot connect the camera to the PC, and download all card contents into the PC. Use a known good card on the camera, see if there's any difference. You can also format your old card, just make sure you don't do it in a different format that will later cause you more trouble. When the camera was stored for 6 months, did it have batteries in it? Check for corrosion on the contacts, and try cleaning if there is any. you can use a pencil eraser, just make sure to clean all the pieces. Hope you work it out
