Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
I just won this camera on eBay. It was listed as a working camera, but after I purchased it I find out (in the finer detail) that the camera has a message in the window that says; "memory card error" and "card locked." Have I been (forgive my term) screwed?
I haven't actually got the camera yet; should be a couple of days. I thought I should do as much research as I could.
Do you have any suggestions, or should I dispute this sale?
I appreciate any help,
Don't Panic there should be no trouble with this sale, The Canon Powershot takes SD memory cards which stands for Secure Digital, Secure in the fact that the memory cards have a tiny switch on the side of them that can be locked so that there cannot be anythong written or deleted from the card.
This is probably what has happened to this camera, nothing to do with the actual camera but with the SD memory Card. To fix it just switch the tiny switch on the side of the Sd memory card to the unlock position and everything should work fine!!
P.S Can you post the link to the ebay auction as this would be very helpful.
