Having problems with your Nikon D2X Digital Camera ?

Cha flashing when new memory card inserted... have tried several to no avail... please can you help?


Answers :

CH A error indicates that the camera can not communicate with the memory card. Most often this is caused by formatting a memory card in a computer and then putting it into the camera. (Especially on 4 + gb cards). Solution is 1. Reset the camera - then it should work with cards that it worked with in the past. 2. Take the bad memory card and reformat it in your computer to FAT not FAT 32.
\015\012
\015\012It should now work - although it will show capacity to be only 2 gb...
\015\012
\015\012I believe at that point, if you reformat it in camera it will work at the full 4 gb.

Hi. My Fujifilm Finepixd S1800 camera has been acting up lately. When I try to take a picture, the camera takes several seconds to actually take it, the top light blinks yellow.
