All of a sudden, when I turn on my camera, I get a flashing memory stick picture and a code C:13:01, also flashing, and under that is the notation, "memory stick error". I have tried two different memory sticks, with the same results. I have recharged the battery, taken the memory stick out and replaced with another, and back again...nothing seems to work. The camera had been working fine, I loaned it to my daughter who didn't have any problems, but when I next used it, the problem occurred.

Re: memory stick error
Look at the bottom of the memory card slot, you probably bent one or more of the contactor pins. Use a small screwdriver and carefully try to straight the bent pin then carefully put the memory card back in.
From now on, use a USB cable for downloading your pictures and don't pull the card out anymore as the pin is probably weaker than before and can break.

1) Make sure that you're not using more than 4 GB memory stick pro duo with the camera. Then try to remove the memory stick and capture 2 images in the internal memory and turn OFF and turn ON the Camera and check. If the error message comes, its the issue with the Camera itself and requires service after resetting. to reset the Camera, select Initialize under Main Settings 1 menu under Settings. if the issue persists, the camera may require service
If its working fine, transfer all the images to the Computer and format the memory stick. Formatting will delete all the contents. If the issue persists, memory stick should be replaced.
Please try to take as many pictures from memory stick as you can then format memory stick through format option in setup. Hope this will resolve this blue access issue. You can use another memory stick like 1GB in this camera.
Hi There, In the menu there should be a setting to set the camera back to factory. Try re-formatting the card. Try using a different card. The camera has some built in memory, take card out and shoot 2 pics on built in memory, is playback ok?
If not, card reader may be defective. Only service shop could tell you that for sure.
Let me know, mr cicmo.
it could be a faulty memory card, but a more likely cause is that this stick isn't formatted yet. you can format it usually by bringing up the camera menu, then going to tools and format. you can also format it by using windows and a cardreader or your camera.
Try using another memory stick, or insert a confirmed good memory stick, if OK, the memory stick is defective, if the same error, try pressing reset at the back of camera, a small hole beside the the DC jack. if OK, then fine, if still the same, camera needs repair. thanks
