E:62:10 on DSC-HX400V
Fri, 13 Jan 2017 12:14:08 +0000

Thanks David. Your recommendation worked. Is there a permanent solution to this issue? My camera hx400 is just 11 months old.

DSCs-40 has blank white screen
Mon, 09 Jan 2017 21:00:59 +0000

I have a Sony HDR-CX100. An amazing camera. You think this tapping the camera is a joke? I very lightly tapped the front of the camera with one finger and the white screen display came back to normal. I don't think hitting the camera hard is a good idea. But anyway it worked.

DCR PC5E Error code C 21:00
Wed, 11 Jan 2017 21:47:37 +0000

Pro změnu česky: C:21:00 a žluté cosi uprostřed hledáčku: ano, signalizuje to vlhkost v kameře, ale pravá příčina je zcela prostá.
Baterie, která zálohuje základní data kamwery (tedy datum a čas) byla u mně svěřená kamery zcela vybitá. Stačilo ji vyndat a kamrea funguje, tedy v mém případě přehrává - a to stačí.
Kdyby někdo chtěl mít i tto funkce obnoceny, stačí dát novou - v mém případě to bCR2025, tedy tatáž, co zálohuje data v motherboardu PC.

All you have to do is make sure the lens cap is off.

FFF file format
Sun, 11 Dec 2016 14:17:32 +0000

Dear Everybody

I am completely new with FLIR and Atlas SDK. As a start point, I would like to know how can I make my FLIR camera store files in FFF format for latter temperature processing?
Converting from stored jpg to FFF is also acceptable but I think in that case, only temperatures for sported points will be available while I need temperature at all pixel location.
It looks like that I will need to program the SDK to do so. I take a look into the example IRImageReaderDemo in Flir Atlats 4.0 but have no clue how I can store image into FFF format.
If you have any experience or examples doing so, please help.

Thank you all very much.

Error code E:61:11 on SONY DCR-HC90
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 06:45:57 +0000

Error Code E:61:11
My HDR-SR12E malfunctioned soon after being caught out in heavy rain while shooting. Lens covers failed, no auto focus and eventually the viewfinder picture area went black with an indicated error code of E:61:11 . Although I had been recording to MS Pro Duo, the hdd went through a noisy procedure at each subsequent startup before the error code was displayed again.
I took the MS out and retrieved all files OK.
I read here about giving it a strong thump but thought the better of it.
24 hours later the vital circuits had dried out and it started up normally.
Moral: If your camera gets wet from rain don't panic; Turn off the power and just let it dry out normally in a warm dry atmosphere over a day or two.
Note: This may not apply to total immersion where internal circuits short out and cause irreparable damage to microchip components.

Video Transfer Utility to Bypass Pixela
Sat, 29 Oct 2016 18:12:15 +0000

How about Total Commander?Your camcorder will be detected as Mass Storage Device.You can find all your video clips (MTS) in folder "BDMV\Stream".All you have to do is copy them and eventually change the extension from MTS to m2ts.

Olympus EVOLT E-500 Power Switch Replacement
Sat, 22 Oct 2016 03:10:07 +0000

Epoxy glue works wonders at solving this but you need both parts obviously.

You can use tiny craft tools to drill or melt small hole in the the remaining piece of leaver on the camera. Then attach a small bolt into the hole to act as a leaver.

If your happy to buy parts off eBay and strip your camera, you can replace the part yourself properly.

Finally, you could send to a service agent with the purchased part for fitting. I say with the part as its an older camera and even Olympus themselves are getting stuffy about repairing old equipment. Naturally they want to sell you new and improved.
