Problem with Memory Card door

Hi My E-10 has started to show the following problem. Put my Memory Card in (Tried 3) switch on and a message appears on the TFT display saying Card door not shut but of course it is. The red light starts flashing as it starts to read the card, it will then allow me to take some pictures but the messages about the door re-appears, it will then recycle through the same proceedure again. Can it be solved or do I dump the camers as it is probelly to expensive to repair compared to prices of current digi cameras

    Hi Thanks for reply it is not my camera but I think it had very little use. Ref your suggestions as to what the problem could be do you have any suggestions how to repair it or is it a bin job thanks

    Sounds like the receiver or actuator that tells the camera the door is shut is malfunctioning or broken. It could be from just being an old camera. Do you use it often?

I read some reviews for this camera, and other people are having problems with their battery compartment. It is a design flaw. If it is not under warranty, a repair might be around $200

Hi,
You need to format the card.
Insert the memory card into the system and this will be displayed as the mass storage device in my computer. Right click over the removable disk and then click format. It will format the memory card.
Then insert the memory card into the camera. Now the camera will not show the error message.

Hope this helps.

Try formatting through the computer rather than from within the camera itself. Or, just open the card on the computer, select all, then delete. There's probably a large file in there somewhere that the camera just doesn't have enough ooomphh to move out.

Hope this helps. :)

Hello and welcome to fixya

Since your camera is more than 6 years old the problem is probably related to SD/SDHC compatibility. You cannot use a card larger than 2GB in your camera.

In 2008 the SDHC format was introduced but even though it fits the SD slot perfectly , the camera's manufactured before 2008 does not have the capability to use the card and reads card error or other messages.

This is 9/10 times the problem you will have. If you have a card smaller than 2Gb with witch you are having the problem , please read the following tip a friend of mine wrote on the subject as it covers all the possible alternative problems you can encounter.

Hi,
For the message that show's on your camera here's is what your need to do. 1. Remove the memory card and check for the physical lock toggle.
2. Toggle the lock on and off.
3. Try blowing on the memory card and the memory card port so it will be cleaned somehow. here is the picture of the lock toggle of the SD memory card 919a7e0.png

My Photosmart E327 won't switch on.


Resetting the camera
If your camera does not respond when you press any
buttons, try resetting the camera as follows:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. If you have an optional memory card installed, remove it.
(Although removing an optional memory card is not
necessary for performing the reset, it eliminates the
memory card as a possible cause of the problem.)
3. Remove the batteries from the camera for 5 to 10
seconds.
4. Reinsert the batteries and close the Battery/Memory card
door.
5. After verifying that the camera works without an optional
memory card, turn off the camera and reinsert the card if
you have one.

Camera does not work when memory card is inserted


ok...it appears that your card reader is really in trouble. Can you inspect the inside, to ensure that no gunk crept inside? That would explain some of the issue.

Can you test those memory cards on a reader on a laptop, to ensure that they are not corrupted, just in case?

Error 10 message


The error 10 message is trying to tell you that the new memory card you have tried to put in is not compatable with your camera. AS you have already tried turning it off/on, replacing batteries etc, you can try taking all cards out, and attempt to get it to fuction correctly with original cmaera memory. After taking out all cards, and with a fully new set of batteries in, use your cameras menu to format the camera memory. Now try and take photos with just normal memory. Is it working? If it does, and error is gone, put in old memory card and reformat it. Does camera pick it up and recognise it. Can you now use it. The new card you tried to install may have been an incompatable brand. Check your manual for approved brands or your local dealer. The card could also be faulty.
