Question about Gateway DC-T50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Gateway DC-T50 digital camera 5.25 megapixels

When the dial is placed on the box with arrow point. I turn the power on and press the menu button and if it does come up, then I arrow down to protect and it will give no choices. It just says protected. Then if you dial to P the LCD screen will show "no card" when the card is properly istalled and the manual lock is not engaged. There has been pictures taken with this card in, but it might jump and show protected card. Is there any hope or answer?

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. you need professional service to fix it .

Gateway digital camera DC-T50 5.25 megapixels put new memory card and a card error message appears

The camera uses SD cards. I assume your new card is 8GB, not 8MB as you stated. If this is the case, it's an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD-only camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
You may download a copy of the manual here.
