E - 40 Warning Light
on Jan 29, 2009 at 12:14:29 am

Hey guys
I have a HPX 2000 and I'm getting a blinking E - 40 in the display and the warning light is blinking. Any Ideas at all will help.
Thanks Bobby

Hmm, I think that might be a P2 warning, but let me look it up.

I was wrong, it appears to be a cadence error.

From the manual:

Thanks Jeremy, I figured it out!!! I had the camera set for 480/24pN. But It can only shoot 24pN in 720p mode not 480i mode. So I changed it to basic 24p and TA-Daaaaa. Thanks... P.S.Silly question but is there any way to shoot 720p or 1080i in 4:3 Aspect Ratio???

Thanks Bobby

Well, there you go. Didn't even know that was possible to select those combinations.

You can't shoot Hd in 4:3, but you can shoot 16x9 and protect for 4x3. You should be able to bring up guides in your viewfinder and on your monitor (maybe, not all monitors have that function).

What are you trying to do?

[Bobby Holbrook II] "Any Ideas "

If they want full screen HD, then 16x9 it is (that's full screen in HD).

If you mean they are going to show it in SD, then you need to shoot in HD but protect for SD like we talked about. When doing your editing, your monitor your program in from HD in SD with a center punch or center cut (or crop in Kona terms). I am sure you can bring up 4x3 guides in your viewfinder and if your monitor has it, you can do it while shooting as well (or tape off your HD monitor).

Make sense?

Jeremy

Wow, I really need to proof read. I'm surprised you got it.

let me try this again:

If you mean they are going to show it in SD, then you need to shoot in HD but protect for SD like we talked about. When doing your editing, you monitor your program from HD to SD with a center punch or center cut (or crop in Kona terms). WHile shooting, I am sure you can bring up 4x3 guides in your viewfinder and your monitor if it has that function. You can tape off your HD monitor if it doesn't.

Sorry about the earlier jumble.
