This could be a problem with the memory card. Try another memory card and see if it help. You should also turn the camera off before taking out a card and putting one in.

Screen blacks when i insert my memory card


Only insert and remove memory cards when the camera is shut down. Before you go on with this memory card, check in a PC with a cardreader if the memory card is ok. Onlty when you are sure it is working good, go on. Perhaps you have another memory card to test in your camera. Please switch it of and check if the battery (ies) having enough capacity.

On the SD card there is a little switch you can move. It has 2 positions, LOCKED, and UNLOCKED. To make the card available, put the switch in the UNLOCKED position.
Here is an example-

If that doesn't work, try putting the card into a memory card reader, like on your PC or a special USB attachment. If the memory card is recognized, then it might be a problem with your camera.

Every time i take a picture on my camera it says memory full insert a Sd memory card to transfer and take more photos i havent took any pictures and i inserted a SD memory card


Try this...go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, without a card in the camera, go into the menu and scroll to "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then if the pics on your memory card are safely on your computer (use a card reader to do this if necessary) insert the card into the camera, go into the menu and scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After all this, you should be ok.

Blank screen


Try this...if you can still get into the setup menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, remove the memory card and battery...press all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. Did that help?

Camera wont work when memory card is inserted


I suggest you try to use a different memory card. If it doesn't happen again then it's probably a bad memory card.
