Try cleaning the contacts in memory card slot, if that does not work, then the camera has a lose contact to the memory card reader slot.

You have an internal fault in the camera. Sounds like you may have a broken pin. A repair shop should be able to fix this very cheap. I would not attempt doing it yourself as it could damage the camera worse if a mistake is made.

Does the camera work without a memory card? Please try a smaller one, what size are you using now?

    It appears the camera can't read the memory stick, try formatting it on your computer for FAT if that doesn't work try FAT32.

    IF this doesn't improve the problem at all, then the cardreader on the camera is possibly faulty.

    Plug the card to your computer, open my computer, right click on the card and select format. Then format the card.

    memory card holder pins seems damaged so camera gives you error message. In this case main board of camera will be replaced.
    You should contact Sony service center for fix.

Dear Friend,
From the description you have given, it appears that the Memory card has developed some problem.
Sony has defined Self Diognostics for their product. It will be displayed when the fault occurs. In your case you can try to resolve your problem in the following steps:
  1. Contacts of the Memory card is dirty or corroded. Clean it with After Shave lotion or Iso. Alcohol or WD-40
  2. If not resolved then check if the card is bent from the contact side.
  3. Try to format the card ( You will loose all data from your card )
I wish you will be able to solve your problem and this answer will be useful to others also.

Thank you for visiting and using FixYa

"Reinsert the memory stick"


I Have a similar problem, but fortunately I had a spare similar 8gb of new memory, when I tried this new memory and formatted it, everything has started working fine. It seems it is a memory problem. I would still like to know what had gone wrong with the original memory though! Hope this helps. Regards.

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may require professional repair.

No Pictures but full card


Sometimes when you edit pictures on your memory stick, it will transfer the files to a different folder. Then the card will seem blank to the camera. Format the memory card using the PC to clean it for good.

Memory stick


I think catcher-lock in memory slot is defective in your PC that's why memory card is stuck there. Use tweezers to pull it back as temporary solution and ask nearest Sony service center for replacement of defective part.

In the settings in the camera there should be a spot that you can change from internal memory to a memory card. Also you can remove the pictures off the camera from the internal memory by hooking your camera up to your computer via the USB cable that your camera came with.
