Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
My Canon started getting the 'memory card error' message when I was recently on vacation and was working on and off, but now has completely stopped working. The camera is about 9 months old, and has new batteries, I even tried a new internal 1220 3V battery. I've tried 3 different SD cards, all which work fine in another digital camera we have. I've tried switching the lock on and off. I can't re-format the memory card in the camera because that option is somehow disabled. I tried cleaning the internal contacts with a piece of paper, and it looks like all the pins are aligned correctly. It seems like it would cost more to get this serviced than to buy another camera... Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Try a smaller memory card size . I was trying to install a 4gb card and the guy at Kmart told me to try a 1gb card and that fixed the locked card error . No where in the instruction book did it address this problem.
