Hi Nathan

Sorry to have to trouble you again. But the information you gave me did not solve the problem.

After following your instructions and finding it did not work. I noticed when I tried to take a picture it did not register and the red warning light came on.

I hope you can help me solve the problem.

Have you tried changing the battery of the camera.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

hi Nathan

I have tried all you have recommended with no result.

I have also checked on the batteries which are fine.

But after following your instructions the camera will not record a picture and the red warning light keeps flashing until the battery has been disconnected.

Many thanks but I hope that you can help to solve my camera problem.

Change the mode to Auto. Replace the memory card and batteries with another one. Also clean the memory card slot. If the problem still persists then reset the setting to factory settings.
