Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera
Experts, welcome to my problem of today. My Sony DCS-T1 has recently come back from Sony UK after having the common 'White Screen' problem resolved and has been fine for a few weeks. Today when switching it on, the camera 'bleeps', shows 'Format error' and flashes 'C:13:01'. I can then do nothing with the camera, cannot view pictures from memory and connot take new pictures. But the screen will view live image from the lens. Card is a 2gb Micro SD in a Micro SD Memory Stick Pro Duo Reader. When I take the 2gb Micro SD card out of the Sony camera and put it in my Nokia N95, all the pictures come up as a generic 'sailing boat' image but after double clicking, or waiting for ages, they open OK. This may just be a very slow reading / opening process as there are several hundred pics on the card. So, seems to point to the Micro SD Card being OK. In which case maybe the problem is with the Micro SD Memory Stick Pro Duo Reader (adapter, into which the Micro SD card fits, and which then fits into the camera), or in the camera itself. I have tried cleaning all the visible/accessable contacts, and multiple re-insertions of each component, but this has not solved the problem. When I take a different Micro SD card (the one that lives in my Nokia N95), and put it in the Sony camera, it shows the same 'Format error' and flashes 'C:13:01'. Anyone got any ideas fellas?? Cheers, CRASHED AGAIN.
Hi.. I think you have solved the problem yourself... replace the adapter with a memory stick... You have eliminated the micro sd card as bad... now try a new known good memory stick..
