Re: card error

Generally, the best thing to do is to remove the battery for a few minutes and reinstall it.  This will kill any of the settings you've made.  Reprogram.  If that doesn't work, replace the battery or recharge it.  Also clean the contacts on it.  If this fails, I suggest you weigh the cost of service versusu a new camera.

Hi there. A mystery error shows the Display of my Finepix S2 pro. Its like that: "o - -" or "o _ _" in the upper Display. Has anyone an idea for that? Best regards, Harry

Try resetting the camera by removing the battery for 15 mins. Replace the battery then go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings to set the Date and Time.

I just purchased this camera and inserted a memory card. Now, when I try to take a picture, I get the 'card protected' error. How do I remove this error and take pictures?

Without knowing the make and model of this new camera I can only speculate on the problem however in my opinion you need to unlock the protected card I'm giving a diagram of an SD card here.
Slide this little switch to the top or towards the gold contacts.
Another thing you will need to do is format the memory card your camera may call this initialize.
Formatting a memory card makes it ready to accept information files from the camera. I hope you have your manual because without knowing the camera make and model i can only suggest where to look for this feature. Most often this function is in the set up menu, once the card is unlocked you need to find this format highlight it and press the okay button once done the camera will function properly as long as you have set the day date and time. Day date and time once set is held in the camera internal memory so you don't have to input the information each time you turn the camera off and back on again. Happy New Year

Memory card error


This seems to be a known issue with the Canon camera's to display Memory card error.

Give this a try
1. Remove the card from camera and wait for sometime ( 1-2 minute ) and re-inserting the card.
2. If this does not work, you need a card reader to read/view images on your PC ( since you are not able to access the card in your camera )
3. If you are not able to access/view the images from Card, click on the link below to recover the images from card - Recover images
When you open the webpage, click on the Download Now option to download the software ( it is free )
4. Try this fix to resolve the issue, Sometimes it takes long time for the camera to load the images and it results in memory card error - Click on the link to download the fix - Firmware Update
5. Try using a SD card with less memory like 1 GB card or max 2 GB for better access of card in camera.

Hope this is helpful.

Error message display in iso.

The E in the ISO field simply indicates that there is no memory card installed. This is not an error, as you stated that you haven't inserted a memory card. Put in the memory card and format it, and this will go away.

I removed the memory card from my casio exilim ex-z75 while it was still on, and now get "card error" when I turn it on (if it even goes on). I've tried a PNY 2GB SD card, and both a 64MB and a...

Hey! I did this today in my camera, trying to solve another problem (it asks for me to set up date, language and time every time I turn the cam on)... and I got the same error as yours. If you can still turn it on, push MENU while it is on, before the error message appears. And then go to SET UP and choose format card. Then it should work. Good luck!

Using my memory card, i check my photos display with out date & time.

You will find a setting that will date/time stamp the actual image when it's taken. Please take a look in your manual. Most cameras have this feature.

No memory card, set time

The date/time battery is "built in" (not replaceable) to this model according to page 13 in the manual (available here). It is supposed to recharge when you have the regular battery installed, but if you leave the regular battery out for more than "approximately three weeks", the internal battery may go flat.

I'm not sure this has anything to do with the memory card issue, though. Check the battery problem by inserting a freshly charged battery, turning on the camera and setting the correct date and time, then turning off the camera and waiting an hour or so (with the main battery still in the camera). Turn the camera back on, and if the date and time have to be reset again, your internal battery may be bad, and the camera would need to be serviced.
