One or more of the image files are corrupted. This can happen when the camera batteries fail at an inopportune time (while a file is being saved, for instance), when the SD card is removed from the computer without being ejected, or when the files on the SD are manipulated (such as rotating it) on the computer and then returning the card to the camera.
Even though the camera may not be able to read or display these files, I have found that sometimes the computer is still able to. Before giving up on all the images, try them in a computer both via one or more card readers or directly in an SD card slot.
If all else fails, you can reuse the SD card by formatting it in the camera.

SOURCE: Transferring images on camera memery onto memory card.

I had the same problem, and I found after much playing and mostly accidental findings that I could do this by following these steps

1. Put an SD card in the camera. Will not work otherwise
2. Go into playback mode, where you view the pictures, button looks like an blue arrow pointing to the right
3. Press the round 4 way controller downwards, and a menu (that I have never seen before!) appears
4. Choose the 4th icon along on the top line and that will give you options to transfer from memory card to camera and the other way around.

Have you tried another memory card? It might be a dirty contact on the card socket in your camera.

I have a Pentax K20d DLSR camera. I ordered a Vivitar/Lino 75-205mm f/3.8 lens with Pentax K Mount. The lens will not work, and i receive a error message of (F--) in the LCD panel. What can I do?


If the lens has an "A" setting, be sure that's where you have it set. Clean the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

My FujiFilm FinePix F47 fd has an error message that keeps saying 'Read Error' Help Please!!!


Hi,

The Read Error message displayed on the Camera when accessing the images which was not recorded correctly. This may also happen when the Memory Stick is corrupted to record or read the files. Please check if the message is displaying when accessing all the images. If it happens with all the images, then it may be an issue with the Camera or the Memory Stick.
To check if the issue is with the Memory Stick, try using a different Memory Stick and check if the message displays.This may also happen when an attempt was made to play back the image or the movie that was not recorded on this camera.
Try to wipe the contact area on the Memory Card with a soft, dry cloth. It may be necessary to format the Memory Card (Format option is available in the Setup 2 Menu of the Camera). If the message still appears, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa.

''Unable to display this image'' error on Pentax Kx


Sounds like some of the spaces on the card are becoming corrupted. How do you download? With the camera and USB cord, card inserted into reader on computer, or card inserted in a separate card reader? When you are finished downloading, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen or do you just yank out the cord or card thereby causing the corruption?

Memory Card error message


The K100D works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot is is electronically incompatible.

Can only take about 5 photos at a time and then only after reformatting the memory card.  After about 5, I get one of two error messages "camera cannot display image" when I try to playback or "memory card...


The card may be done. Thay have a limited lifetime, and if it was a cheap card in the first place.......

Reformatting does not fix this, the formatting software will scan for bad sections of the card and exclude them form the format.

It could be that there is a problem with formatting from the camera. But a card reader to fit to the PC and download the card formatting program from the official SD standards website. If your card can be properly formatted then this will do it.
