My camera is new and was working fine until it was unplugged from my computer without safely removing it from the USB port. Now it is stuck in docking mode, ive tried leaving the batteries out and takeing the memory card out. Ive also tried plugging it back into the computer and safely removing. Is there any other way of resetting it or fixing it? Thanks,

There may be a small reset-button hidden inside a small hole somewhere that you might push with a paperclip or something. Also make sure the connection plug on your camera isn't damaged. If some pins are shorted out it might fool the camera to believe it's still connected to the computer.

I have had a similar problem with a computer, where usb ports would sometimes work fine, then suddenly become erratic. It wasn't until I replaced the computer, new computer, new operating system, new software, and while transfering files over the same thing started happening again - odd!
It turned out to be a white sd / camera card reader which was plugged into a usb port, unplugged it and all was normal again. I would not have guessed a card reader could have upset all the usb ports, but it sure did!
Or, in your case, if it is just one port, perhaps it is not connected to the motherboard.

I unplugged my Nikon D80 from the computer without clicking the safe to eject drive button and now it seems to be stuck in PC mode!


Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 20 mins, then replace the battery and go to the Menu setting and set the Date and time.

Will not let me upload pics says camera not connected to usb port


The error indicates that the computer is not getting an understandable signal from the camera (or dock if you are using one). The solution will be in discovering why the signal isn't getting through, or deciding that the camera or dock is defective.

Verify that the camera battery is charged. Then turn all devices (computer, dock and camera) off. Remove every cable and wire between computer and camera. Unplug power to the dock.

Examine each connection carefully. Look for dirt, bent pins, loose connections, or anything "strange". Look at the bottom of camera too, where it sits on the dock.

Reconnect the wires and cables, power everything up and see if any improvement.

If no improvement and you have WinXP or Vista, Do a System Restore back to a date when the camera connection was working. Restart and check for improvement.

If no improvement, check computer update history. Have any Microsoft updates been applied since the last time the camera connection worked? If so back them off and check for improvement.

If no improvement or no MS updates, decide that the camera or dock are defective and return them. Unfortunately, electronics sometimes fail. If you like the camera, give a replacement a chance.

Take the memory card out of the camera and copy the pics through a card reader.

Good Luck

Device cannot work


Try cleaning your computer for spyware and viruses. Also try cleaning your registry out using a utility. Do your USB ports on the computer work with any other devices? Try using different USB ports and make sure theres no faults in you device list with the USB drivers. Let me know more info. What OS are you using. By unplugging it without safely removing is most dangerous to Flash memory but it's definitely possible to damage a hard drive by doing so. You might have corrupted your drive. Hope this helps.

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks

USB device unknown


Make sure you are connecting directly to the computer's USB port, not through a hub. Try disconnecting other USB devices before plugging in the camera. Check the manufacturer's website for updaded drivers: if all else fails, a reinstall of the camera's drivers may be in order.

Docking station does not synchronise


Possible faulty connection between docking station and camera. Depending on age of the camera- send it back for replacement from the seller or contact Casio. Does this model have a removable memory card? If so invest in a card reader - very cheap and more reliable than docking stations.
