Camera wont work when memory card is inserted

When there is no memory card in the camera it works fine, but when the memory card is inserted, (with fresh batteries) the camera turns on, but then the screen immediately goes blank and the camera shuts off with the lens still open. this is the same memory card that ive always used with this camera, it hasnt been dropped or mishandled, and the card is inserted correctly. (the same thing happenes when the camera is connected to the computer)

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

Took out memory card to transfer photos. returned card to camera and it indicated memory card error shut down leaving lens out.


Never remove or insert a memory card while the camera is turned on. Try removing the battery, waiting about 30 minutes, and then putting in a freshly charged battery.

Tip

Copy Pictures From INTERNAL MEMORY to Memory Card (solution for those who have...


Required:
Samsung D53 Camera
Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!)
Fresh batteries

Optional:
Computer
Memory card reader on your computer

Problem:
You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.

Solution:
I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.

Here are the steps I followed:

1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.

2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.

3. Power camera on.

4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.

5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.

6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".

7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.

(Optional)
8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.

9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)

No memory card, set time


The date/time battery is "built in" (not replaceable) to this model according to page 13 in the manual (available here). It is supposed to recharge when you have the regular battery installed, but if you leave the regular battery out for more than "approximately three weeks", the internal battery may go flat.

I'm not sure this has anything to do with the memory card issue, though. Check the battery problem by inserting a freshly charged battery, turning on the camera and setting the correct date and time, then turning off the camera and waiting an hour or so (with the main battery still in the camera). Turn the camera back on, and if the date and time have to be reset again, your internal battery may be bad, and the camera would need to be serviced.
