Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

OK, firstly let me state what exactly the error message you are receiving concludes to:
"The "DCF full error" occurs when you use memory card in your camera which is formatted in another camera. The error is the result of improper formatting of the memory card which leads to incompatibility of the card with the Samsung camera."

Now, i the resolution for this specific problem is to format the memory card in the Samsung camera.

I know you stated that you have already formatted the card, but you did not state if you formatted the card in your camera, or on your computer.

Try the above solution and let me know if the problem still persists.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

I am unable to take photo because of DCF full Erros come often ES30


This is what the manual says:
File names do not match the DCF standard.
Transfer the files on the memory card to your
computer, and then format the card. (p. 76)
Format in the camera, not in a cardslot of your computer.
Lots of errors, can be solved by removing and reinserting the battery(ies)

When i turn on my camera the lens close and on the screen it says "lens error!" and goes black.


Hello Lash,

The lens error in many cameras are caused due to sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials stick to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the carrying case. To resolve the lens error remove the battery for some time. Then insert the battery again and charge the battery completely. Then try pressing and holding the Menu, Function, Function Set, or OK button while turning the camera on. Also try the factory reset option. Also try the on/off button many times after battery full charge.

When l take my SD card, it still says " DCF Full Error"


Hello and Welcome

The DCF error message with your Samsung camera nearly always occurs when you're using a memory card that was formatted with a different camera, and the file format structure is not compatible with your Samsung camera. You will have to format the card with the Samsung camera.However, make sure you download any photos to your computer first

Anymore help, I am here to help
Best of Luck

DCF Full Error


DCF = Digital Camera Full

Usually, that just means you have taken a lot of pictures/videos and your memory card is full.
You should transfer them to a computer via USB or by taking the memory card out and putting it directly into a computer.
If you continue to have problems after emptying the memory card, you may have a faulty memory card.
If you suspect you have a faulty memory card, you might try a different one.
Always try to use a trusted memory card brand (I prefer Sandisk).

Good luck, I hope I was able to help
