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!

Confirm the power-on lamp and the monitor

Removing Memory Cards1Before removing memory cards, turn the camera offand confirm that the power-on lamp and monitor areoff. 2Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot coverand press the card in to partially eject the card. 3The card can then be removed by hand. Do not attempt toremove the card at an angle.
Insert the memory card.
4Slide the memory card in correctly until it clicks into
5Close the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover.
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.
Make sure you insert memory card correctly, when it is fitted into the memory card terminal it give clicking sound. 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. (Might be it will filled with dirt or dust )
Else your camera need to be repaired.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
Hi, For the message that show's on your camera here's is what your need to do.
1. Remove the memory card and check for the physical lock toggle. 2. Toggle the lock on and off. 3. Try blowing on the memory card and the memory card port so it will be cleaned somehow.
here is the picture of the lock toggle of the SD memory card
These instructions are from the Instruction Manual of the Coolpix S 210 and need to be carried out within the Set-Up Menu.

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.
