Make sure that you insert the SD card in the correct orientation. If not, it will not lock into place. The SD card is push in to insert and push again to eject.

There is a small diagram showing the correct way to insert the card just below the left hand side of the slot.

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.

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.

Memory Card Slot Not letting it insert fully, seat, lock in place


It may be that you are trying to put it in backwards. It can go in only one way, contacts first. The last bit in "is" spring loaded so it will take a "little" force. If it truly will no go down pull it out, spin it 180 degrees and try installing it again.
