How do i switch from internal memory to external memory? my memory chip is brand new but when i turn my camera on it says "out of memory"


Hello,E5700 does not save pictures in internal memory, uses only CF card.
Does the memory card is full capacity?

What storage capacity is the new card?
It is likely that your camera can not handle a larger CF of 128Mb (frankly dont remember).
Also this indication may be by a malfunction of the card or any damage to the connector on the camera, as pin bent or collapsed.
Best regards

Card error


1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

I have a Nikon D70 and am unable to insert memory card all the way, i double checked that it is the correct card and inserted the right direction.


STOP! You have just bent a few pins. Your camera has a male connection. Meaning it has pins sticking out. If you are unable to insert a memory card, that means a pin is bent and is not going into the holes in your memory card. This is a common problem with cameras that accept a compact flash card. This can be an easy fix or it can be a very hard fix.

Ive fixed a couple of cameras like this with a pair of tweezers. flash light (or some big source of light) and a magnifying glass. You need to look into the slot on the camera under light and look at all the pins sticking out. Look for the bent pins and use the tweezers to bend them back. Be careful not to keep bending the pin back and forth, as this will break the pin off. Ive seen cameras work without certain pins, but this is not something you want to do.

To have an SLR fixed is a minimum $160 dollars depending on where you take it too. The D70 is a good camera.

Please do not stick the memory card back in. Check the memory card to make sure all the holes are clear and have nothing blocking the holes or make sure a hole has gotten bigger and merged into one. I would use a different card once the pins are are sticking straight.

Hope this helps you.

Think you may have bent a card pin. Remove the card and the camera's batteries. Look in the card slot for any bent pins. If you see one, don't fret, it may be fixable. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible (one from the dollar store is fine for this). 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 in the slot, then the next obvious thing to try is a different CF card.

Not working


Try a different memory card. Some of these cameras may not support large sizes. Try a smaller card such as a 512 or a 128.

Canon eos digital camera, display err 2 in window. will not take any photos. The battery is fully charged and istalled correctly.


ERR 02 usually indicates a problem with reading the memory card. Remove and reinsert the memory card (check the pins in the camera with a strong light to make sure no pins are bent). If that doesn't work, try another memory card. If it still doesn't work, the camera may need to be serviced.

Casio Exilim won't turn on when memory card is inserted


It sound like a bent pin issue. Look at the bottom of the memory card slot, you probably bent one or more of the contactor pins. Use a small screwdriver and carefully try to straight the bent pin then carefully put the memory card back in. From now on, use a USB cable for downloading your pictures and don't pull the card out anymore as the pin is probably weaker than before and can break. Good luck !

MEMORY CARD ERROR


Sounds like the memory card pins are bent. Remove the card and hold the camera up to the light. Look inside the memory slot and see if you can see any bent pins or anythign that is not uniform. There are 2 rows of pins and there whould not be any missing or out of place. It can be hard to see but if there is any that look closer together or laying over thats the problem. Its common and it happens fairly easy. Its best not to remove the card, even though people sugest using a card reader or to save battery life bent pins can trash a good camera.
