Question about RCA CC6384 Camcorder

4 Answers

Battery Hi! After a couple minutes of recording (sometimes only 30 seconds!), we will get a message that the battery is not attached, and the camera will shut down. We have a fairly new battery, but this happens even with a full charge. We have taken the battery off and snapped it back on, but it still happens. Do you have any suggestions?

    We do use a rechargable battery. If the contacts need cleaned, should we use rubbing alcohol or what?

You may want to try an expanded Ni-MH battery packs for longer recordings. there is a possibility that you may need a replacement for the pack.

    you may use a very very light sand paper and carfully scrape the rust off. if you will use acohol, apply it on a cotton cloth then gently rub the conttact until the contact is clear.

Use rechargable battery instead of normal and clean the inner area where you insert your battery.

MY SONY CYBER SHOR DSC-W270. IT SHOWS SYSTEM ERROR WHEN TURNED ON.


Hi,

The System Error message displays when the files on the recording media have been copied or deleted repeatedly on a computer. Backup the files on your computer, then format the recording media in the camera to resolve this issue.
Formatting the Memory will erase all the data stored in the Memory Stick.
If the error message displays after formatting the Memory Stick, then try using a different Memory Stick media. Once the Memory Stick is inserted, perform manual power reset of the Camera.
To reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Later, re-insert the Battery pack in the Camera to resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

7340 won't turn on green light comes on for a couple clicks and turn red , it used to turn on but you had to start it several times?


Please check whether the battery is fully charged. Try power resetting the Camera.
Remove the battery from the Camera. Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the battery after 1 minute and check the operation.
If the issue still persists, service might be required.

I keep getting error 99. I've cleaned the sensors with a new eraser; I've changed the battery and changed the memory card. If I take out the battery and put it back in, I can take a picture. If I pause for...


Hello:

Here is what Canon said :

To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you 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 a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If it does, then the camera should
be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of
steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.

If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.

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 should be serviced.

I hope this will help

Freezes up while operating


I have found that my aiptek digital camcorder also freezes like this sometimes after I have pressed the button to stop recording a movie. You are right that sometimes you must remove the battery to unfreeze it, but I have found a couple of other tricks that work sometimes.

1. You can hold down the menu button for a few seconds (like 6). Sometimes this kicks it into the menu and unfreezes it.

2. Sometimes using the power button inside of where the screen stores to turn it on and then off again often helps.

3. Popping the digital card out (push in so it unlocks, then push it right back in) also helps unfreeze it for me.

If those don't work, pop the battery out again.

I do find that every few months I need to clean the connection points on both my battery and the camera where the battery clicks in. After I do this it behaves much better for a couple months. Good luck.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
good luck

Battery/Camera problem


Return the battery to Radioshack and try another brand of replacement battery. It is possible that the Radioshack battery is in stock for a long period of time. batterries have limited shelf life and it gets worse if they are left discharged for a long period of time.
