Loop recording: 1 minute.

Format warning: Off.

It is annoying, Help me please!

Is looping enabled?
What memory card are you using?


Settings in my previous post.

Possible card issue.  Be sure to format it inside the camera.
Also, what is your G-Sensor setting.  An 8GB card would fill up fast if you were getting a lot of G-Sensor events.  Don't use SanDisk Ultra cards.

While i testing camera at home everything seems to be right. Camera is working few hours with no problem. In the car is problem again.

A found in web it is possible capacitor problem. Maybe while power of last file is corrupted and can't be overwrite? How to check it? Until power on camera working right for few hours.

Ptobsnly it is memory card problem. I'm using few days some shitty no name 2GB card and everything seems to be ok. What You think about Kingstone memory card?
Kingston cards are usually good.  Transcend is the preferred card, but Samsund EVO Select (green card) memory cards have been working well too and are a good value right now.


When you say Transcend which type, should I use High Endurance Cards.l am using Lexar High Endurance now I have been told they aren't compatible for A119s camera Any comments as I still have issues with my camera.

all of the functions buttons do not work, also there are 5 or 6 rectangle boxes with "x" showing at bottom of the screen.


Update to the latest firmware and you should be fine. Be sure to manually default the cameras settings after the update.
None of the buttons work. I can not get the menu to come up.
With camera off, remove the memory card.  Power back on and try to enter menu.  If you can, go in and default the camera to it's default settings.  This will usually fix the issue temporarily.  Update to the latest firmware as this was a firmware bug.
Also, you can still update the camera without accessing the menu.  Just copy the firmware file (.bin file) onto the memory card and put it in the camera and start it.  It will update automatically.
