The "E50" error code indicates formatting a storage card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another storage card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other storage card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the storage card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the storage card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the storage card on the computer before you check the storage card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the storage card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem.

SOURCE: Error 18

This is a common problem not with just canon but any auto focus camera that uses gears and a motor to zoom or focus. There are 2 basic problems for this error. E18 is the error that tells the user that the lenses are stuck and they can be cause from an impact or debris in the teeth of the gears. Its unavoidable, canon has tried to prevent this using gaskets around the lenses but over time the gaskets just wear and then debris can slip past the gaskets. The impact is a user problem. The gears are plastic and plastic can take only so much force before it breaks. The only way to prevent it is to buy a camera that does not have an optical zoom so you dont have any moving parts. You then lose some features. Try to avoid dusty sandy enviroments, keep the camera stored lens down and dont drop it. The lens is glass, glass is fragile it can break.

AEG Lavamat 60810 keeps stopping and displaying error E50 and some time E70. What is the problem and how do I fix it?


Family error code E50 means a problem with the washing motor. Family error code E70 means a problem with the NTC sensor. In my experience, E50 is most common fault in worn carbon brushes. But in any case family error code E50 is shown to the customer. In service mode could be: E51,52,53 and 54. The same applies to family E70 error code that will be displayed in service mode as error code E71 or E74.
E50 error code could be: motor winding, power board, tachymetric generator, motor relay on power board, wiring between motor and power board and wiring between tachymetric generator and electronic.
E70 error code could be: faulty NTC sensor, wrong position of NTC sensor or to much limescale on it and finaly wiring between NTC and electronic.

What does the error-code E50 means in a crayola Kiddycam 25070?


hi,

The "E50" error code indicates formatting a storage card has failed.I think the e50 error code happens when the camera is reading and/or writing to the CF card when the battery are dead or real low. The camera does not get to finish writing data and leaves an error on the CF card. Use new battery or fully charged battery. I hope this may help you,

regards,
