Error 30 is a mechanical fault with the Shutter. It means the shutter is not responding correctly.

This can be an issue with the firmware. Did you remove also the Lithium battery when you did the reinstall of the battery?

And how long did you leave the battery out?

Yes I removed the battery but only for a few moments.

ok, remove it for 10 minutes, then put it back in and tell me if you still get the error please Iain.

Thank you

Battery replaced after 10 mins but error still there.



Thanks Iain

It is the shutter that has faulted.

A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by restarting it. The fact that the problem continues, confirms it is the shutter that has failed.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camera to have this repaired. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
