try an sd card from another source. the format function of the camera should be used to prepare the sd card for the camera before you take pics with it. this may be a format issue with nintendo. format will erase all images on card, so save them first somewhere else.
This indicates that your SD card is full and should be replaced with an empty card. If the new card has never been used before, be sure to format it. If you don't have another card, download the pictures from the full card then erase or format the card and you can then reinstall it in the camera. The numbers on the lower left side of the control panel show the number of shots remaining on the SD card.
Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:
1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.
2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.
3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on
4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.
5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.
5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.
It might be worth it to simply buy a SD memory card if you have a SD card slot in your computer. You can download pictures taken from any camera if using a SC card since you actually download from the card. You can also take the card to any WalMart, Walgreens, CVS, etc that has the photo machine.
In this mode, all you have to do is press the shutter button and let the camera do everything else.
1. Turn the camera on.
2. Turn the shooting mode dial to .
3. Aim the camera at the subject.
4. Use the zoom lever to achieve the desired composition (relative subject size in the viewfinder).
The angle of view can be adjusted within the 45 to 100 mm range, in 35mm film equivalent.
When the LCD monitor is on, the combined use of the digital zoom and optical zoom enables magnified shooting up to approx. 7x.
5. Press the shutter button halfway.
beeps will sound when the camera has finished metering, and the
indicator will light green or orange. If the LCD monitor is on, the AF
frame will appear green.
The yellow indicator will blink and the beep will sound one time if the subject is difficult to focus on.
6. Press the shutter button all the way.
You will hear the sound of the shutter when the shutter activates.
The picture appears for two seconds on the LCD monitor, if it is on.
The indicator next to the viewfinder blinks green while data is recorded onto the SD card.
The cause and solution may include one of the following:
The camera is not turned on. Turn on the camera.
The camera is processing a picture; the camera Power ring light (on the Mode dial) blinks green. Wait until the light stops blinking before taking another picture.
The card or internal memory is full. Transfer pictures to the computer, delete pictures from the camera, switch storage locations, or insert a memory card with available memory.
The shutter button was not pressed. Depress the shutter button completely down.
There was a failure in the focus and/or exposure. Press the shutter button halfway to set the Auto Focus (AF) and Auto Exposure (AE). When the AF/AE indicator turns green, press the shutter button completely down.
The battery is exhausted. Replace or recharge the battery
