The camera won't let me do anything. if I try to view the pics on the camera, it tells me no card, if I try to take a pic, it tells me card error. I can not use any buttons on the camera. I have 3 cards and it gives me the error for all 3. What is the problem?

Hi

Your memory card type has been discontinued, it has a history of failing unfortunately.

If you can get the card reformatted you might be able to use it again.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Can someone tell me what to do when my GE 5x optical zoom 14.1 megapixel A1455 digital camera will not let me take pics or anything. It keeps saying (Write Protect) whenever I try to take pics. Please...


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Help with the Olympus FE-280 8.0 megapixel, please!!


this is a tipically problem, of a pressure on the lens, if the lens go out. or if the camera are dopped. to resolve this problem alone you must have specifically knowledge.
the cost of the reparation is high. so if you want prove withe the exact model number, search on the ebay international seller the komlet lens with ccd for you camera. any american seller if you buy the lens, can give a guide to change the lens block. but this is not a symply job. if you make one error you loose the camera and the lens. the price of your lens block can go from 25 to 35 euro, if you can change it alone you have resolved with this money. ok.?? sorry for my bad english if you want help can you write me and i will help you

I am viewing pics on my D-560 and going from 1-200 pics is fine but then going to 201, the two lights on the camera start blinking and after a while the camera is shutdown. Going in reverse viewing form...


Sounds like you are keeping way too many pictures on the card. That's not safe. Download them to your computer using a separate card reader if necessary. Then format the card in the camera and start fresh.

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"


First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

Regards, Andy

I had the same problem and downloaded a firmware upgrade from the Fuji web site and it now works in the camera.

Are you using the SD card that came with it? or you purchased it separately? It's possible that the SD card is not being detected. maybe that is why it is saving it in the builtin memory instead of the card. did you try a different SD card? please try another card.

X-D picture error message.


Well, you can try to recover it using recovery software, but you are out of luck, it seems Olympus have some issue with memory card slot in FE model, I have FE280 and it happened to me three times already and I call the support they are no help what so ever. Answer they provide is format the card.

you can try to recover it using memory card reader, but you have to find one that support Xd slot.

Sorry to hear that you have that problem, take as lesson learn and don't buy Olympus.

try wipping the card and putting it in several times,if all fails buy your self an olympus 1gb xd card H TYPE.

Here's the fix (condensed from another post):

Turn the camera off. Then, put the camera in manual mode (turn the dial to A S M) and then take a picture. Card formats and all is fine.

This works for some reason. Thanks to original poster out there somewhere.
