Status LED just blinking the whole when switched on

Hi, my brother has this camera (no memory card) - he bought it about 2 years ago. He says when he switches it on the green status LED just flashes the whole time indicating it is busy processing. He alrady changed the batteries. No luck. I've looked at some of the others posts. Any ideas? Cheers, Eben

    Added in a SD card and now it works. It seems the internal memory is gone forever, just using SD in stead - at least the camera is useable again!

I have lost all confidence in this model camera. If you managed to take at least 500 pics - consider yourself lucky. Even the experts are baffled by this problem. Time for a new camera BUT not a Samsung I"d say.

    And here is the solution... Eureka - we have found a cure. Internal memory of 16MB is shot. Buy a memory stick, insert and voila.... The camera is back too life. And apologies to Samsung....This is really an extrodinary little camera.

On my Samsung Digimax S800, when I put the memory card in, it says to check sd card. What do I do about it?

When the card worked before, check if you did not switch the lock switch down. And check all contacts on the card and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny.
When you recently bought a new card you could have bough a SDHC card and these won't work in your S800.
The S800 only accepts MMC and SD cards, The SDHC and SDXC cards won't work.
A few years ago you still could buy 4 Gbyte SD cards. Now even most 1 Gbyte and 2 Gbyte cards are already SDHC. SDHC was introduced at least 7 or 8 years ago, so all new devices accept SDHC. The SDXC was introduced at least 4 years ago, so in a couple of years, you perhaps only can buy these cards?

Hi, i've bought a new canon camera (powershot

You probably need to move the small switch on the memory card to the open position.

Have a problem with HL-5370DW Status LED is red &

Hi, if you status led become red and only that light is on must be 1 of the following problems:

1.- Front Cover is opened
2.- Memory Full
3.- Option Tray is installed too much
4.- Print Overun

Fault finding

The green LED is called the memory acces lamp. When you switch off the camera is will write back the last changes. when you switch the camera on and off, the light ususaly will stay off, because nothing has changed. When you remove the card en put in another the LED will flash again. At least my D7000 with 2 card slots will do so, because someting changed and the system will write that into the memory.

Canon SD1300 memory card locked

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. But, if you've checked the slide switch, the internal switch in the card slot may be jammed by a grain of sand or gunk. Here are troubleshooting steps for this problem. Recommend the toothpick fix for your particular problem.

I replaced the fuser in a Brother HL5170-when I turn it on, all 4 lights are blinking. What might be the problem?

This is what's called a Service Call, meaning the machine has experienced a problem that it doesn't think an end-user can support.

According to the manual:
"Push the Go switch and the Job Cancel switch at the same time during the service call and hold them. And then push the 2 key additionally to show the service call type by LED combination."

Which I'm assuming means press and hold the two buttons, then press them both again.
The combination of the LEDs tells you where the problem is:

RED Status +:
Toner LED = Fuser (Fixing Unit)
Drum LED = Laser
Paper LED = Main Motor

YELLOW Status +:
Toner LED = Main PCB
Drum LED = Engine PCB
Paper LED = DIMM

All of which are expensive parts and also expensive repair.

Status LED just blinking the whole time when switched on

Samsung digimax Technical support may have an idea. Is the manual still available - to format the memory? I guess however at the end of the day you /He will be looking for that new camera
