Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My camcorder states Movie recording disabled. It is a sony handy cam dvd108. I am using brand new sony mini-dvds. I have tried so far the following things: cleaning the lens, cleaning the pick up lens, resetting the camcorder, removing the battery and replacing it.


Answers :

Hi! Looks like that the camera has a system crash. I strongly suggest that you have it looked at by a qualified technician to check the circuit board of the camera. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
I had the same problem when I used a -R disk. If I use a -RW disk I am able to format the disk and film with no problem. I think this model is not compatible with the -R disks, even though the manual says it is.

When i turn on my camera the lens trys to come out but then it gets stuck and goes back in; the screen says "turn the power off and on again" but when i do the same thing keeps happening over and over. The camera has one big rechargable battery so i can't just replace it. I've tried doing the reset, and I've tried tapping around the lens ad hitting the sides or bottom of the camera but nothing has worked.

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture. Turning the camera off and then on again, or removing and replacing the battery temporarily took care of the problem. Now I am getting the ERR 01 and can not take pics at all, regardless of which lens I use or whether I am using the IS option. I've tried cleaning the c

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and all of a sudden, when I turn it on, the lens moves in and out while making a strange noise until a "Lens Error" message comes on the screen. I tried replacing the batteries, turning it off and on, taking out the memory card, and cleaning the lens. The first time I replaced the batteries, it worked...until the next time I used it and the screen was completely blurred. Then, I had the original problem with the "Lens Error" message. I really don't think it is a conde

Lens error My coolpix L4 was working perfect. Then, I went to turn it on and it said "Lens Error" on the screen. None of the buttons will function and the lens is frozen out. When I turn it off, the screen goes black and the lens remains in the out position. I tried replacing the batteries and cleaning the lens with a soft cloth, but it didn't help. Can you tell me how to fix it? Thank you!

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

The viewfinder of my Nikon D80 is grayish and blurry when it's off. I cant see a thing when I tried to use my 18-135 mm lens. I don't have a battery to reset it to its factory default settings. Do you think there's something wrong with the camera or the viewfinder is always blurry and grayish when it's off. I have owned D40 earlier and I could play around with the viewfinder even when the camera was off.

This would need to be repaired if the lens is stuck so is the shutter. I would take it in and have it looked at. there is no other resetting then what you already have done ot the unit.\015\012\015\012\015\012thanks for rating. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital Camera

There's not much you can do about the problem because the problem is inside the camera. A faulty component is probably the cause. (I think its receiving more or less that the needed amount of power so that's the error with compatibility)If stil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition... Changed lenses with the power off. Powered back on and no LCD, or any actions at all. Flash will not pop up, no shutter noise, no auto focus. No top menu, no back menu. Did the double green button reset and the hard (hole in the bottom of the camera) resets while both on and off, with and without batteries, with and without SD card and every combination. Tried different lenses, also without a lens. Tried with two additional Nikon brand, fully charged batteries
