Warnin! Mode dial is not in the proper position

I keep getting this message everytime I turn the camera on. Can't find any troubleshooting answers on this subject. I tried taking out the batteries and letting it reset but it doesn't do a thing.

I used to have the same problem. Make sure the picture of the setting you are using on the turn dial is lined up with the beige pointer on the top of the camera. When you turn the dial, you can feel it lock into position. It could be that the dial hasn't quite clicked into the right position and just needs adjusting.

HELP! I have the sony DSC S950, everytime I take a picture, the picture has this green, pink and blue horizontal line on it, and it is so lighty... pls. help me!



When shooting a subject with a strong light source, such as the sun, black lines or other noise may appear on the recorded image. This is called the smear phenomenon and is specific to the CCD of the camera; this is not a camera malfunction. To prevent this from occurring, do not shoot a subject with a strong light source directly.

If the issue persists with all shooting conditions, it may be an issue with the Camera.
Try initializing the Camera. To initialize the Camera, please use the Initialize option under the setup 1 Menu.
If the issue persists, perform a power reset of the Camera.

Performing a manual power reset

  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.
If the issue persist, service is required.

When I turn on my cyber -shot camera on it tells me to Turn the power off and on again. I do that but it keeps giving me the same message. Remove battery...recharged the battery...still the same message.


Your camera most likely has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Sony service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

I have a Canon Rebel XT EOS Every time i take a pic I get an Err 99. I have taken the battery out and memory card for 5 Min. If i do that I can take about 5 or 6 pics before I get that message again. What...


Try the following diagnosis steps: -

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

E25 error on canon ixusi


Remove and reinsert the batteries to see if the error code will reset. Generally speaking, there is nothing you can do to correct the problem other than to send the camera to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the error. Following the repair cost, you should decide whether it worth it.

This is from Konicas site. don't know if this will be any help for you since you had posted a long time ago. you most like have a new camera by now. anyway. Question: When a CompactFlash is loaded, a message of "Card Error. OK" appears and remains on the monitor display. Answer: Please follow the procedure below. While the message is displayed, press the center of the controller. The monitor display and data panel will turn off. Turn the Main Switch dial to OFF position and remove the CompactFlash from the camera. - When "No Card" message appears next time when the camera is activated in the recording mode, the camera and CompactFlash are OK. - When "Card Error. OK" appears again, the CompactFlash may be faulty. Use other card.

Cannot get clear close-ups


Recommend not using flash. The first thing is that your subject should be well lit. Try placing it on a lighter background with good lighting around it. Also recommend using a tripod to keep the camera steady, and setting and using the camera's timer to take the photo (this also helps keep the camera steady). The closest auto-focused macro shot that the S200 takes is around 1 foot from the subject. Depress the shutter button halfway to verify that the subject is in focus (one of the three squares on the LCD should turn green on the subject). Next depress the shutter button all the way to take the photo.
