No memory card error

When I turn the camera on I get a message that says "no memory card."

Posted by on

  • Lew Holt Feb 28, 2012

    It read "no memory card." I cleaned the card contacts and the camera contacts. Still didn't work. I removed both the battery and card, pressed every button. Still didn't work. I placed it on my desk, knocked it to the hard wood floor with a bang. When I tested it see if I ruined it, the card was there and works fine. Not very scientific.

  • Lew Holt Feb 28, 2012

    I had already tried different memory cards and the camera would not recognize any of them. The solution might have been dirty contacts or maybe -- maybe -- the jar jarred something to allow the memory card to be found. I'll never know probably. Thanks for you help. I appreciate it.

My SD1000 wouldn't read any of the 4 SD cards I had here, but they worked fine in other cameras and the SD reader slot on my computer. So after trying everything I could possibly think of I stumbled across your answer. Drop it onthe floor! I just beat the hell out of my camera after reading your post and it started working agin. I thought it was a lost cause anyway so I had nothing to loose. Thanks for the suggestion, wouldn't have crossed my mind. It seems to be working fine now. I feel like the Fonz!

The reason for memory card error or no memory space error is nothing but the corruption or damage to the memory card. Once the memory card gets corrupted or damaged, the storage media becomes unrecognized or unreadable. To deal with such error, you can format the card. It resolve the corruption issue and let you access the card. But before formatting you need to take backup otherwise old files will be lost completely. In such case, you need to use photo recovery software to restore lost image, audio and video files. The tool comprises powerful algorithm to retrieve lost or deleted videos from corrupted or formatted memory card, memory stick, flash drive, USB drive, hard drive and other.

You need to change the memory card with new one, because memory card got corrupted and needs replacement.
Thanks

SOURCE: memory card not reading in canon a75

So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.

Either the camera or the card is faulty. There is not a setting which will cause this problem. Try a different memory card, if the problem persists you will need to get the camera repaired.

Remove the memory card from the camera. Note that there is a small slide switch on one of the long edges of the card. Slide the switch to unlock or lock the card.

SOURCE: Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

How To Fix You Camera's "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" Message


When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.<br /><br />We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.<br /> <br /> If this doesn't fix the Card Error, try replacing your batteries with a new, fresh pair of batteries. Also, if you haven't tried already, replace the memory card with a known working card and see if this fixes your error.

Hello
Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.

Welcome to FixYa.

One possible reason why do you get a "memory card" error is because the memory card is not yet formatted for camera use. Try to format the memory card using the camera itself. Do not use another camera or PC's when formatting the memory card,it may cause another error because it will not recognized by the camera.

Try also to clean the memory slot by using a soft and dry cloth. Then turn on the camera again.
If the message still persist, you neen to contact Panasonic service center.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if this solution was helpful.

Welcome to FixYa.

Hi,

Possible reason why do you get an error " Please wait for camera to finish recording " is accidentally you turn off the camera, or new mode was selected while images are being recorded to memory card. This message automatically clears off the camera display when camera finishes writing data to card.

I suggest that do not turn off the camera,removed the memory card, or removed or disconnectthe power source while the hour glass icon is displayedor while the green autofocus lamp is blinking.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

My name is Madhu. I use the camera Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi. When the inbuilt FLASH is on then a message pop up as "busy now", when i tried to click the camera to take a photo then...


Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you

Possible that the memory card has some errors or virus in it. So please remove the card and insert it into the card reader in your PC which must be having a good anti-virus software to remove all the mal-wares in the card and format. Only if there are such viruses will it indicate such an error.
Remove off files- copy to folder, scan and format.

Memory card is locked, how do I unlock this?


Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
  1. Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
  2. Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
  3. No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
  4. No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
  5. Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
  6. This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
  7. This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.
