Sounds like the internal latch that secures the card is broken.

SOURCE: SD card keeps popping up when inserted in cama. SD card will not stay down in camara Says it needs to be formatted. It will not format. Never has this problem before How can I fix this

The SD slot of the camera got damage somehow. The SD slot contains thin copper prongs that locks the card in place and comes in contact with the surface of the card. If these prongs are damaged, then it cause a read failure of the camera.

SOURCE: memory card will not stay down in a nikon coolpix s210

Hi, I have exactly the same problem. However, instead of getting a new body with a broken screen and exchanging my screen (One of the only ways round it) I thought I'd try something.

I folded a piece of paper (Quite a small piece) and put in on top of the card when it is popped. I then just closed the battery/card cover and it stayed in place. This is a cheap way of fixing it, it's now been fine for a while, it's a bit of a shoddy fix but it's better than paying nikon £50 to get it fixed.

It takes a couple of trys, getting the paper the right size was a little bit of a pain but it now works fine.

Good luck,
J

My memory card will not stay down in my Kodak easy share z950 how can i fix it so it will stay down


There is a little spring assembly in there that pops the card out when you press a button or something. But if the button is stuck or not working the card will always pop out! If you remove the spring that will do the trick - to remove card in future you use tweezers like I do with my Garmin! Does the trick and works fine!!!!!!!!!!

SD card won't stay in the slot of my Panasonic Lumix DMC-SL80


is the lock on the card by chance. also depending on how old the camera is and how big the sd card is in gb. the lumix may not be able to handle that size of card, too many gb. My lumix would only accept up to 4 gb, so when I moved to 16 they did not work.

Put in a new set of batteries and then before you do anything else format the SD card using the camera.

SD card won't stay in camera


Quick fix... Roll a little piece of paper up or fold into a small square the set it on top of the memory card and tape that down. so that it puts pressure on the card and keeps it seated in the slot. It sounds like the spring inside the camera is broken. which you will need to have sent out to be repaired unless you have a local camera repair person. And that is going to take about a month. Actually more... unless you find a local repair person. Because Sony bought out minolta a couple years ago and shut down all the minolta repair centers and got rid of almost all their parts. I once had a customer who sent in a minolta to get it fixed and it took about 8 months to get it back. Because of parts.
So You will probably want buy a new camera. but there are still a lot of those Minolta's around on clearance and you can get a great price.
Hope that helps,
Caleb
