Error message "push the reset switch"

We can't use our camera because of the error message"push the reset switch", which doesn't go away after you push the reset button.

The Panasonic manual for this problem is stupid. It says "Pushing reset button MAY help resolve the problem"...
nothing else-no explanation of possible problem.....worthless.....

How do you get to the shutter release on a d3100 to manualy turn it to get the error message to go away


Try switching the camera on and while it is on remove the battery. Leave it for 30 secs and replace the battery then switch it of and then on. This process sometime clears Error Codes.

Error message "push the reset switch"


Pull the battery out to reset it. Get a DV tape cleaner to clean out the tape deck.

That should solve both.

Lens doesn't work


Try removing the battery and memory card for at least 15 minutes. With some cameras, this will reset the camera and lens may clear the error message, as long as there is something that is not physically damaged the camera.

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa

After some shots an ERR message appeared on LCD, I could not make more picture. The error message in the counter field (when half pressing) the shutter is r09. I tried to take in and back the battery, the...


"ERR" doesn't indicate any specific error, but usually tends to be something only a technician can fix. Sometimes, you can make it go away by fully pressing the shutter release, but chances are that it will reappear at some point. Take it to a reputable camera shop, or send it to Nikon if you're still under warranty.

(The "r09" message is not an error, but an indicator of how many images you can take-nine in this case-before the camera has to pause for processing. This usually applies to burst-mode photography, and varies depending on how fast your CF card can transfer images.)

You probably just need to format the card in the camera to get it to work. This will erase the card so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

Push the reset switch


The means that the powerup self test is not completing successfully. If there is no error indication in the viewfinder, this unit will need to see a Panasonic servicer for repair.

I have a canon rebel xti, I partially blocked the pop-up flash while taking a picture. There is an error message on the screen - flash error 05, turn camera off and on again to clear. It is not working....


Hi,

You can reset all your settings and clear errors by removing the battery pack and also under the camera is an access screw to get to a button battery or two. The type of screw you use a dime or quarter to open. With the battery pack out, remove the button batteries and leave all those out for several minutes and then with the batteries still out, activate the On switch for your camera and leave it in the full on position for 30 seconds. That should drain off all residual power from the circuit board inside. You will have to reset everything, such as your personal settings in Tools and the time and date setting. All of those user set items, but your error message should clear too. If you get the error message again, right away, after reinstalling the batteries and battery pack, then you have damaged the Flash Unit... but I doubt that. Canon makes a good camera and I don't think what you describe would cause that problem.

Regards,
Worldvet
