D80 : Memory Card Fit

SD card will no longer slot fully into place and E is displayed on screen with power off and on. The card stands proud about 2mm and will go no further. No obvious signs of obstruction within slot. Have tried three different cards but with same result. I have had the camera for over a year with no problems to date and, yes, I do know which way round the card fits!

The camera has been kept in a good, padded case since last use a few days ago and has not been dropped, banged or otherwise abused. Any help would be much appreciated.

I know that an SD card could lose it's little lock if it is damaged, the worse place is in the slot where it would block another card from seating fully. (don't force it) Even in a padded case if the sd cards are sliding around loose the can get damaged or even get dirt, lint or fuzz in the "lock".  If this has happened don't probe around in there, if you do there may be further damage done, that one a camera repair shop might be able to do or you may have to send it to Nikon for repair.  Don't have the camera on or even the battery in if you can't resist trying and don't stick anything metallic in the slot.

How do I load scan disk pictures onto computer


If your PC has an SD card reader you can place the microSD card into the adapter that it came with and then insert it into the slot on the PC. The SD card reader will be a small slot usually at the front of the computer. If there is no SD card reader then place the microSD card into the gadget you use it with such as your camera/phone etc and connect the device to your PC using a cable the device came with. The cable will have a USB jack at one end that will fit into the USB ports at the front/back of your computer. Once your device is connected you can follow the on-screen instructions to access your pictures.

Screen says card is locked


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

How do you put your sandisk microSDHC card with adapter in your camera


That depends on the camera. If the camera supports Sandisk Micro, then the SD card will fit into a slot. The slot is often located near to the battery.

You will just have to push card in and camera will automatically read card.

If camera does not read the card, ensure that the camera model can support SanDisk Micro, and that it will also support card size. Older cameras do not support big memory card (eg.4Gb)
