I just got my Nikon D3100 and it wont turn on..why?? i didnt buy a memory card yet..doest it need memory card to turn on??

The battery ships in an uncharged state. Slip the battery into the charger until the it indicates it is fully charged. Install into the camera. The camera should power up without an SD/SDHC/SDXC type memory card installed - and should flash [-E-] in the viewfinder alerting you to the fact that no memory card is inserted.

Check to make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.
Clean the battery terminals with a dry cotton swab that has a fine and soft tip, and then re-insert the batteries.If the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is not securely closed, the power of the camera may not turn on.Close the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] securely, and then turn the power on.
If your camera still does not work even after you have performed the above procedures, your camera may be malfunctioning. Please have the camera serviced in this case.

When I turn my camera on it says internal memory is full and it really does not let me do anything. Oh this is a EasyShare C 813 What can I do and I pray I have not lost my pictures.

Have you insert a memory card in it ? If we don't insert the memory card, pictures that have been taken will automatically saved in camera internal memory, and this memory usually have low capacity so we won't make many pictures because the memory will full in no time. The solution is insert proper memory card (kind and capacity).
If you have insert the memory card the camera shows that notification, it means you need to transfer your pictures data in PC so you can delete them and make more space in your camera memory card.

Hope this help and RATE please !

The camera works fine without a card in, but when the memory card is put in it doesnt. i changed the card and no difference. PLEEASE HELP

The cause and solution may include one of the following:
  1. The card may not be certified SD. Please purchase a certified SD memory card. For example: Sandisk, Toshiba, Panasonic, etc.
  2. The card may be corrupt. Reformat the memory card.
    CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
  3. The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.

When i insert an sd card the vtech kidizoom camera wont turn on at all.

I am not a tech wiz but have just managed to put the card in my daughters camera! Normal SD card tight fit,it looks like it needs to go all the way in but doesnt. Either you have it in wrong or wrong card? Metal bits down! When I turned it on you then have to go to the tools sign to switch to memory card .Hope this helps.

Camera wont work when memory card is inserted

I suggest you try to use a different memory card. If it doesn't happen again then it's probably a bad memory card.
