Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX200V GPS Digital Camera Black with 32GB Card Battery

Open Question

Sony Cybershot HX200V SD Slot is completely jammed up after I removed it. Using Sandisk Card. It looks like the spring has become loose. Cannot insert the card at all. Any ideas?

Just purchased 1 month ago. Cannot return to Best Buy. Did not get warranty. Sony says pay for shipping and they will fix at a facility 5 hours away. Any idea of how to fix spring inside the slot?

I called Sony, did what they said, and now my camera is working just more blurry pics. Go to menu, click arrow right, click arrow down 3x till you get to "Setup 1," click arrow right scroll down to "Initialize," click to right, select OK, press center button. This initialized everything back to default settings and now I don't have blurry pictures anymore.

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860

The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

I reformat my sd card in the computer to remove all the photos the when im using it in my sony cybershot camera it appears "reinsert memory card" how can i fix the it to use it again in the camera

When you need to delete the photos from the SD memory card, do not use your computer to do it. Use your camera to format the SD memory card.
To fix this problem, insert the SD memory card in your camera then go to the camera's Menu and format the SD memory card.

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.

  • 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.

    How do you put your sandisk microSDHC card with adapter in your camera

    That depends on the camera. If the camera supports Sandisk Micro, then the SD card will fit into a slot. The slot is often located near to the battery.

    You will just have to push card in and camera will automatically read card.

    If camera does not read the card, ensure that the camera model can support SanDisk Micro, and that it will also support card size. Older cameras do not support big memory card (eg.4Gb)

    Sd card jammed in sd card slot

    This may sound bad, but I promise it isn't. Have you tried removing the SD card with a small pair of needle nose pliers or even some twizzers? It sounds like the spring mechanism failed, so your only solution now is to pull it straight out, a little force and it should come right out. There are no pins to bend on an SD card.

    Multi-media card reader problem

    Try pushing in on the card until it clicks, and springs back out. If it is not that type of slot, then pull the card out using a pair of needle nosed plyers (since you obviously can't pull it out by hand). If it looks to require too much force, then you might want to try taking out the screws on the back of the laptop to reveal the card slot, there is an obstruction that is preventing the card from being removed. I had an issue with an SD card getting stuck, and I pulled it, but the pins stayed inside, so use caution & be gentle.

    Good luck!

    Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working

    The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.
