SD card broken and stuck inside card slot

Question about the Pentax K7 DSLR. I have a small bit of my SD card broken and stuck inside the camera. Now the camera does not recognise any cards inerted in there. Is this a problem experienced by anybody else? I ask because this is the second card that has been broken. I am not bothered about the crad itself but the camera is unusable just beacuse of a small bit of plastic stuck inside th slot.

Take the camera for professional repair. It's probably a manufacture fault, or a transport damage.

SOURCE: how to mount Minolta AF 28-80/3.5-5.6 on pentax

Unfortunately, it is not possible to mount Minolta lenses on a Pentax K mount camera and retain either auto-focus, metering, or the ability to focus at infinity.
The reason for the loss of the ability to focus at infinity is because the distance from the mount to where the image forms on a Minolat lens is 43mm, whereas on a Pentax it is 46mm, so the Minolta lens glass would need to be 2mm into the body of the Pentax camera in order for the image to form on the sensor (i.e. have a clear image that is in focus).
The only solution to this is to purchase an adapter with an optical element such as this: http://photo-adapter-llc.amazonwebstore.com/Zykkor-Minolta-MD-Lens-to-Pentax/M/B004PB8142.htm?traffic_src=froogle&utm_medium=CSE&utm_source=froogle This will allow you to focus at infinity, however you will have to use stop down metering and manual focus, as the electrical contacts will not connect. Also, you can expect a slight loss of image quality when using an adapter.
I personally have a few Minolta lenses that I have wanted to use on my Pentax, so I understand your pain. It is a shame they don't work better.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Pentax is not authorized to sell in India officially. Any cameras bought there are considered "Grey Market" and imported from other countries where Pentax is officially represented. There are no authorized service centers or showrooms in India. You can order online off of eBay or one of the major web retailers, and they will ship one to you, however there will likely be taxes and import duties associated with this. Also, the Pentax international warranty is not active in India, making repairs very expensive and requiring high shipping fees for repairs.
If you decide to buy the camera anyways, keep in mind that purchasing any lenses or other accessories will need to go through the same process as described above. Pentax may not be your best option, but rather choose a Nikon or Canon, as they are officially represented in India and you will likely have a much better experience and less hassle this way. Until Pentax is represented in India, the process of getting your gear could be very painful and expensive.

My memory card won't lock in place therefore I get a "no memory" card message.


Unfortunately it sounds like the locking clip inside the SD card slot is broken or some how stuck? If you can try to look inside the SD card slot in the camera with a flash light, there should be a small clip like plastic to the left sticking out. That is what locks the SD card in place. See if anything is stuck in between like debris, you might gently poke that clip and see if it is stuck? That is what locks the SD card in place, if it is broken or missing, that will require some work to replace the plastic lock.

I have a Pentax OPTIO S6, recently all camera function freezes whenever i insert an SD card, the screen turns on and I could see an image but ALL buttons do not work including the shutter! When I remove...


Does a different card work in the camera?
Can you read the card on your computer with a card reader?

and...check the little slider thingy on the side of the SD card, flick it up, try it, flick it down...try again.
check the SD slot on the camera, anything stuck in there? lint? dust? sand?
Blow it out with canned air.

Eliminate the card as a problem...hope it's the card then worry about the camera.

Good luck

How to unlock card in pentax optio Says Card


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.

6c99e31.jpg

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

Kind regards
Andrea

DSLR do not power on


It's almost impossible to accurately troubleshoot a "dead" camera without seeing it, but your problem could be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may require professional repair.

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)

Sdhc memorty card in a pentax optio e10 camera


The E10 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.
