Camera displaying no memory and not charging correctly

We bought our new camera in April of this year and have barely begun to use it. This weekend I turned it on to use it and it came up with a low battery icon and stated that we had no memory space left(despite only having two photos on the camera. I deleted the two unwanted snaps, having already saved them to disc and plugged the camera in to recharge. The recharge light came on immediately. After recharging it I turned it back on and the low battery sign reappeared and the no memory space left sign came up again. The camera is turning on easily but we are at a loss to why it is playing up. Do we have a dud battery? Can anyone help two very untechnical savy people sort out this problem?

SOURCE: Battery Life Very Low

Might be the wrong rechargable batteries? And don't even try to use regular AAs The camera shuts itself off. You have to use rechargables.

SOURCE: Camera won't turn on...

I posted earlier, prior to trying what Sony had suggested. I tried it and at first it didn't work, however I didn't have an AC adaptor so I hooked the camera up to my laptop with a USB cable. First try nothing. I then took the Memory stick out and put it back in (while I was connected) and the next try the camera turned on. However, it's not my camera and I'm unable to get it to do anything except be on, it's like it's frozen, so there may be other problems. BTW, the edit/playback setting is the arrow in a box.

SOURCE: Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly.

Hi there please reset the camera 1st . THen pair your battery with your camera. Go in menu then battery type option. Select the type of a battery. After that save the setting. Now try . If you face the same problem then the camera internal power transformer are damaged or week. So you need to replace that transformer after that it will start work properly. You use that camera so long, that's why there is a chance of that damaged. Thanks if its helpful then rating me.

I bought a camera which is dsc-w650 has problem when i insert the memory it displays that the image database error can not resolve, so how do i solve the problem pls help me

Where did you check the memory card? in the computer? that is not the right place. Every card, old or new, you use in a camera for the first time should be formatted in the camera. First you must be 100% sure it is the correct card. Not every memory stick Sony has, can be used in every camera. So check the manual, what Duo, Pro or other memory card should go into your camera. Check if you have the correct card. Then if the card was used before, check if no pictures are on the card (external memory card reader) and save the pictures to the computer. Then format the card. If you can't format the card in the camera, try to format it in the external memory card reader. Use FAT32. Then reinsert the card in the camera and again try to format the card. If nothing goes, try another (correct) card to make sure nothing is wrong with the camera.

I have had my camera for 3 years but never had bought a memory card for it. I recently purchased one from Walmart. When i put the memory card in the digital display almost gets stuck and won't open so...

The camera takes SD cards up to 2GB (not SDHC cards). If you've been taking pictures using the camera's internal memory, you must first get rid of those pics. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert your new card and go through the "format" routine again to prepare the new card.

Fuji Fine Pix S602 Z Memory card formatting problem

Looking at the original advertisements for that camera, it is only advertised as having memory cards up to 1Gb. You might find that the problem is that the camera doesn't support a card as big as 4Gb. You can probably check this in your manual.

Try new Alkyline batteries again ... (not heavy duty ones).
Make sure the batteries are inserted in the correct polarity... I'm sure it's the batteries.

No pixs

make sure the camera is saving to the SDMMC memory stick and not just to the camera itself. Might be best to try it out on your own computer or a friends to make sure it is saving the pictures correctly or not just to the cameras internal memory. As the card you pull out is generally considered an external memory source and in most cases has to be selected as the destination in which to save to.

Nikon digital camera malfunction

Hey jackie jean,
If the two year extended warranty you are talking about is a performance service plan purchased at a Best Buy™ store then you could bring the camera into a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store, and they should be able to send it out for service at no charge to you. I am assuming you formatted the memory card in the camera, but if this is not the case and you have formatted the memory card using your computer then I would suggest formatting the memory card in the camera. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I just fixed mine. Put your memory card into your computer. Right click on it. Choose format. Reformat the memory card. You WILL lose all pictures stored on it.

Before putting the memory card into your camera, do the following.

Go to MENU and choose RESET ALL.

Choose reset to original settings.

When camera is done doing so, turn camera off.

Reinsert memory card after it is done being formated in your pc.
Then your camera and memory card should work great again. I just did it on my Canon Powershot A620.
