Memory card will not release does contact portion (metal face the back of the camera)?


Yes it does face the back of the camera. Try this: turn the camera over so that the battery/card slot door is facing to the right. When you open the door you should see the batteries first then the slot for your sd card. If you insert the card into the slot from this position the card label should be facing you with the notch in the card facing to the left, this should be how you insert your card. I believe it is on Page 15 of your instruction manual.

If the card is facing with the contacts towards you then it is inserted incorrectly. If you have inserted it correctly then the card is spring loaded so gently push down on the sd card and it should pop up if it doesn't then it is jammed.

If it is jammed you can try to remove it yourself with a pair of needle nose tweezers or you might just have to send it off to canon service center or your local repair/camera shop to remove the card and hope that you have not damaged the camera itself.

MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    After inserted A new batteries in the screen shows card locked how I can fix that


    There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

    AFTER INSERTED A NEW BATTERIES IN THE SCREEN SHOWS CARD LOCKED, HOW I CAN FIX THAT


    Try taking out your batteries and then taking out your memory card. In memory card you can see a small button at the side you need to slide that to unlock your memory card. Put back in batteries and memory card. Turn on camera.

    If this works, just put back in your memory card and try again. Sometimes the memory card hangs and you need to pop it in and out.

    I have a LG CF360 and I am trying to insert the memory card, but I can't get it to stay completely inserted.


    Hello.

    Insert the memory card into the slot until the memory card is fully inserted into the slot. Note that the gold connectors must be facing down and inserted first into the memory card slot.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a canon powershot sx110is and when i turn it on it will not take any pictures but instead gives the message "memory card error." When I put it to the display mode it says the same message plus...


    First see if the camera will work without the memory card installed. Then format the internal memory using the camera's setting as described in the manual.

    Then turn OFF the camera and insert the sd card. Turn on and reformat the card too.

    Make sure you have NEW batteries or sometimes things go flakey.

    I dont know how to insert the memory card in the reader


    Check that your card type is compatible with the sockets.

    When a card fits, it goes in with the metal contact strips face down, at the front. They normally require hardly any pressure to go in.

    Sometimes my computer won't recognize my memory cards but here is a trick. Put your memory card in your card reader before you start up your PC. When you start up your computer it will scan all of its hardware along with the memory card.
    i hope these can help
