JVC mini-DVR video camera model GR-D750U not operating properly. Upon tape insertion, it shows error code 03 and goes to "safeguard mode" Already attempted to re-insert tape as directed on camera screen and insert new tape, but the problem persists.

I have a Panasonic NV-DS5 digital video camera. Whenever it tries to load a tape it displays an error code "F 01" on the screen. I've tried several tapes and they're all good quality. I assume it needs repairing and I'm trying to find a service centre in the UK that I can send the camera to be repaired.

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not. I sent it to Canon repair who wanted to charge me more than it was worth to repair but that was before they even started to analyse the problem. I decided to buy a brand new 20d. Put in the battery and the CF card and exactly the same thing has happened. I can get the cameras to come on but when I press the buton the flash jumps

The lense on my FinePix V10 is stuck on the out position and will not go back in when I turn my camera off. The screen says Focus error. Is there something I can do or do I need to take it in to be worked on. I love this camera and hope to be able to get it repaired. Is this possible? I have had it for about 2years.

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...

CF error I own a Canon 400D. It worked perfectly until today. I inserted the cf card, and turned on the camera. It took a couple of seconds to light up, and I got a message that the cf card was faulty and needs to be replaced. I used another one...it said the same thing. I tried reformatting. It gave me an err99 and then said that "shooting is not possible" I formatted the card on the computer...no luck. The pins are in place, I checked. What could be the problem and how could I go about solving

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?

Cannot get tape recorded from JVC GY-DV500U to play back on any other deck. It will play back on this camera and I suspect a tape speed difference, but I don't know how to change it on camera. I recently had this camera worked on by JVC repair center for eating tapes. This fixed that problem but now have this issue. They replaced a small plastic gear and a circuit board. They have not answered my email concerning this issue.
This situation is usually caused by a slight misalignment of the recording head. When this happens, the recorder will record, but the tapes can only be replayed in that recorder. I would keep complaining to them, as repair for this could run a few ... Digital Cameras

8GB CENTON SDHC memory card - class 4 - worked okay first day. Removed card to transfer pics to computer. Did fine. When inserted card back in camera JVC-PICSIO GC-FM2BU, got "Memory Card Error" message. Could not reformat. Still okay incomputer, so reformatted in computer. Back in camera, got same message. Tried in other cameras - got same error message. FYI, card is NOT locked!
Sounds like you forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" when you removed the card from the computer. Also, never format a card in a computer and then expect it to work in a camera. You can try to format it a few more times in the camera but if not ... Digital Cameras
