2. Battery problem

One of the reasons why your camera does not work well is due to a low battery or a damaged battery. Some of the problems you could encounter are:

  • Keeps taking photos

  • The right LED flashes

  • The camera is not responding at all

  • Fail to charge batteries

The correct direction of batteries


To fix these errors, you should charge the batteries. The yellow LED inside the device will light up and only turn off when the batteries are fully charged.

If you cannot charge the batteries, remove both batteries and connect the camera to a power bank. Make sure that the power is turned on and the color filter switch is in the first mode. Then press the shutter button to check. If the camera work well, please replace the batteries with new rechargeable or alkaline batteries.

Why use rechargeable batteries?

Rechargeable batteries can be recharged many times, this saves costs because there is no need to change batteries constantly. In addition, the use of rechargeable batteries helps to protect the environment by reducing the number of batteries discharged into the environment.

However, sometimes the batteries that you just bought from the store may already be in a "low battery" condition. This can happen due to time, sunlight, temperature, etc. Therefore, when you buy new rechargeable batteries, you should charge batteries to ensure it works well and get the sharpest pictures.

3. Memory card problem

In addition to errors caused by the batteries, your camera can also encounter errors coming from the memory card. This is a fairly common problem that causes the most trouble for users because you may lose all the pictures you have taken if the SD card has problem. You can recognize it by some signs such as:

  • The left blue light flashes

  • Can not access the pictures

  • Can only take pictures when charging batteries


To fix such problems, you should make sure that the memory card is unlocked and inserted in the correct direction. You should also clean the memory card and the card slot to make sure that dirt does not interfere with their contact.

Unlock the memory card

If these are not your issues, remove the battery and use only the power bank, then take a picture with the first color filter. If only the left LED is flashing lights, reformat the memory card and try again.

It is recommended that you format the memory card to FAT32 (Windows) or exFAT (Macbook). If you do not know how to format a memory card, you can watch this video.

Before formatting the card, make sure the pictures on your card are safely stored in another location because formatting the memory card may cause data loss.
