Files not based on the DCF standard. Moreover, pictures recorded or edited by other equipment may not be copied. [BUILT-IN MEMORY ERROR FORMAT BUILT-IN MEMORY?] This message will be displayed when you format the built-in memory on the PC or remove the batteries without turning the camera off. Format the built-in memory on the camera again. (P84) The data on the built-in memory will be deleted. [MEMORY CARD ERROR FORMAT THIS CARD?] The card format cannot be recognized by the camera. Format the card again with the camera after saving necessary data on a PC etc. (P84) [PLEASE TURN CAMERA OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN] This message appears when the camera is not operating properly. Turn the camera off and on. If the message persists, contact the dealer or your nearest Service Center. [MEMORY CARD PARAMETER ERROR] Use a card compatible with this unit. (P5, 13) You can only use an SDHC Memory Card if using cards with 4 GB or more capacity. [MEMORY CARD ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD] An error has occurred accessing the card. Insert the card again. [READ ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD] An error has occurred reading the data. Insert the card again. Make sure the card is inserted properly and then play back again.
If you return the menu settings to the initial settings at the time of purchase, the condition may improve. Select [RESET] in the [SETUP] menu. (P20) Battery and power source 1: The camera cannot be operated even when it is turned on. Is the battery inserted correctly? Check the direction of the battery. (P12) Is the battery sufficiently charged? Use a battery that has been sufficiently charged. 2: The LCD monitor turns off while the camera is turned on. Is power save mode (P18) or economy mode (P18) activated? Press the shutter button halfway to cancel these modes. Is the battery exhausted? Use a battery that has been sufficiently charged.
6: The recorded picture is blurred. The optical image stabilizer is not effective. The shutter speed will become slower and the optical image stabilizer function may not work properly when taking pictures especially in dark places. In this case, we recommend holding the camera firmly with both hands when taking pictures. (P22) We recommend using the self-timer (P38) when taking pictures with a slow shutter speed. 7: The recorded picture looks rough. Noise appears on the picture. Is the ISO sensitivity high or the shutter speed slow? (ISO sensitivity is set to [AUTO] when the camera is shipped. Therefore, when taking pictures indoors etc. the ISO sensitivity increases.) Decrease the ISO sensitivity. (P60) Set [COL.MODE] to [NATURAL]. (P66) Take pictures in bright places. In [HIGH SENS.] (P48) in scene mode, the resolution of the recorded picture decreases slightly because of high sensitivity processing. This is not a malfunction. 8: The brightness or the hue of the recorded picture is different from the actual scene. If recording under fluorescent light, the brightness or the hue may change slightly when the shutter speed becomes fast. This occurs due to the characteristics of fluorescent light. It is not a malfunction.
9: A reddish vertical line appears on the LCD monitor when the shutter button is pressed halfway or when recording motion pictures. This is a phenomenon called smear. It is a characteristic of CCD and appears when the subject has a bright part. Black or green vertical lines may also appear or uneven colors may appear around the smear. This is not a malfunction. It is recorded in motion pictures but is not recorded on still pictures. 10: Motion picture recording stops in the middle. Are you using a MultiMediaCard? This unit does not support MultiMediaCards. When you set the picture quality to [30fpsVGA] or [30fps16:9], we recommend using a high speed SD Memory Card with 10MB/s or greater displayed on the package. Depending on the type of SD Memory Card or SDHC Memory Card, recording may stop in the middle. LCD monitor 1: The LCD monitor sometimes turns off although the camera is turned on. Have you set economy mode? (P18) In economy mode, the LCD monitor turns off while the flash is charged. 2: The LCD monitor becomes darker or brighter for a moment. This phenomenon appears when you press the shutter button halfway to set the aperture value and does not affect the recorded pictures. 3: The LCD monitor flickers indoors. The LCD monitor may flicker for a few seconds after turning the camera on indoors under fluorescent light. This is not a malfunction.
