Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

NO CARD msg on viewscreen.

I disassembled our Gateway DC-T50, but in the memory card slot/bay I was unable to access the contact mechanisms, or parts that mate the card with the camera insides. I got the camera back together and sometimes, as before, I can apply pressure to the front metal casing and the back metal casing and thereby make the necessary contact. It'll flash of a photo, but now it won't be recorded on the memory card. I've tried other memory cards and the same thing happens... Gateway just tells me to take it to a 3/rd. party camera repair facility.

There is a contact switch inside the memory card slot that can be modified to always be reading a memory card. It is a long shot for a novice to complete, but not impossible. Probably will involve bending a contact point, or shorting out contact point with a piece of foil or solder. A new board could cost 40-80 dollars I suppose.

Gateway digital camera DC-T50 5.25 megapixels put new memory card and a card error message appears


The camera uses SD cards. I assume your new card is 8GB, not 8MB as you stated. If this is the case, it's an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD-only camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
You may download a copy of the manual here.

HI I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF MEMORY CARD SHOULD I USE FOR THE DC-T50 THANKS


Hi, The DC-T50 only takes regular SD cards up to 512 MB in space. Most cards that are sold now are SDHC, which are NOT compatible. If you can find a 512MB SD card, it should be extremely cheap.
Happy Shooting!

Hi,

Remove the batteries wait a few minutes. Put fresh batteries back in and turn the camera on. This resets the camera.Then remove the memory card from the slot from your camera. Then insert back and check you will not be getting this error.

If still there is some problem, take the memory card out and copy the pictures from the memory card to system and then format it. Insert the card back to the camera. You won't get the format error.


Hope this helps.

If you still have any queries feel free to ask us.

Is it an SDHC card? SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Check memory card from computer with card reader.
If that doesn`t help.
Try formatting memory card from camera or from computer (it will destroy data on card).
Most likely your pictures are alredy lost.

I havd the same problem. The contacts arent pushing the card in far enough to be recognized. Ive been stuffing a small piece of folded paper in there to push it down. Its annoying, but solves the problem.
