Removed memory card from camera

Hi Ginko! I really goofed this time. I have a Nikon Coolpix 4 and removed the memory card with the power on. Will a new memory card fix the problem? I am getting a message of corrupted picture files for the recent photos when I try to unload images to my PC. Please advise and thank you so much!

Sincerely,
ourexcellentadventure

    Thanks! I found that the camera has some internal memory without the card. I'll see if I can reformat the card.

Yep, the corrupted files are stored on the memory card.

A new card should sort it out, only you will probably lose your files.

Often you do not even need a new card, you just format the old one.

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.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Second thing you can check battery, Direction of your battery might be wrong (+,_), Check out and put it again. Load new or fully charged battery. Clean your battery terminal with soft cloth.

Cannot find instructions in manual for Nikon Coolpix S210 on how to delete ALL photos from memory disk. It will let me delete one at a time but I want to wipe the memory card clean. Thanks for any and all...


These instructions are from the Instruction Manual of the Coolpix S 210 and need to be carried out within the Set-Up Menu.

Refer Page 19:

Removing Memory Cards
Before removing memory cards, turn the camera off
and confirm that the power-on lamp is off. Open the
battery-chamber/memory card slot cover and press the
card in 1 to partially eject the card 2. The card can
then be removed by hand.
B Formatting Memory Cards
If the message at right is displayed, the memory card must be
formatted before use (A110). Note that formatting permanently
deletes all pictures and other data on the memory card. Be sure
to make copies of any pictures you wish to keep before formatting
the memory card.
Use the multi selector to choose Yes and press k. The
confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, choose
Format and press k.
Do not turn the camera off or open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover until
formatting is complete.
• The first time you insert the memory cards used in other devices into the COOLPIX S210, be sure to
format them using this camera (A110).


Refer Pg 110:

 Format Memory/m Format Card
Use this option to format the internal memory or a memory card.
Formatting the Internal Memory
To format the internal memory, remove the memory
card from the camera.
The Format memory option appears in the setup
menu.
Formatting a Memory Card
When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the
Format card option appears in the setup menu.

Hope this helps

hi..
There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it.
You need to unlock the card itself. Take it out and look for a tab on the left. It should be pushed up.

Switch on - Switch off! Coolpix3100


Coolpix uses SD cards, not CF. Anyway, try using the camera without memory card, only with internal memory. If it works, then replace memory card.
