Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
My me,mory cards does not work and tell me cards error on ixus cannon digital
First remove battery and card and look in your flash card slot for any bent pins. If you see some, don't fret. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.
If there are no bent pins, then the internal BIOS battery has likely run down and is causing this error. Don't attempt to fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for you for free, with free shipping, regardless of your camera's warranty status. See and print out the following advisory:
