My g42ng camera keeps coming up with a card error. I just put a brand new card into it
Take the card out and check if the lock switch is in the locked position. You need to move it to the unlocked position. That means moving the switch away from the SD card pins and towards the back of the card. If the lock is damaged or loose, you may need to replace the SD card. To see what the lock looks like, see https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1102/~/sd%2Fsdhc%2Fsdxc-memory-card-is-write-protected-or-locked .
Sometimes, you need to use a computer to format the SD card. This can happen when the card was initially formatted to be used with a different device. Then return the card to the camera when the camera is off. Follow the steps to select the Custom setting and format the card again in the trail camera. See page 20 of the manual, https://www.stealthcam.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2017/12/STC-G42NG-KPT.pdf . The last thing to try is a firmware update of the camera.
I hope this helps.

My vivatar camera sd card says no file
Has it been formatted ? If you have read it in your computer without setting write-protect, the computer will have written hidden files to it which the camera cannot understand.

How do I delete photos from my onn 18 megapixel camera?
Not familiar with the model but I think most point and shoot cameras are similar to each other - if that is so you should find a delete option in a menu when you are viewing the picture you want to delete.
You can also delete by connecting to a computer or using a card reader with the computer and and deleting single pictures or whole files.

My coolpix S4300 shows 'lens error' how do i fix
First, eliminate some of the possible causes:
1. Is the battery low or dead? Use a fully charged battery.
2. Is there an obstruction causing the lens from3 opening or closing - such as sand or other particles.. They have to be removed.
3. Did you drop the camera? That might damage the zoom gears or put the lens out of alignment. Do not shake it. If this has happened, an expert tech might have to disassemble it and adjust. This could get expensive, depending upon where you had it done.
4. Is there an uneven gap between the lens and the lens housing? Turn it off, place it face up, look. If so, apply gentle pressure at the highest gap in order to snap it into place. You should hear a click. Power it on. If it extends and contracts power it off, then try to move the lens in a circular motion until it clicks. Power it on. Twist the largest lens ring until it clicks.

How do I make it show photos on my SD card when I put it into the slot it says loading non-playable file
If it is saying "non-playable file" it usually means the format the photos are saved as isn't one the player recognises. Basically, The photos are in one language and the player doesn't understand it. If you or someone you know is good with computers the photos can be reformatted, (translated), into a form the player understands. It isn't a hard thing to do and most laptops and computers have software built in that will do it easily and quickly.

How do I reset camera? Takes a picture as soon as it turns on
Without knowing the make and model of the camera, it is difficult to provide a solution. However, if you remove the media card prior to turning it on, then select 'Factory Reset' (or equivalent) from the menu system, it may sort out the problem. Should this prove unavailing, then your next option is either repair or replacement.

My sde120 says no signal on all 4 cameras
Since that unit uses one power supply to the dvr and the dvr controls the cameras, it is possible that the power supply is bad. The unit has 4 prongs and 2 of those power the cameras.
