Question about Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Have a Canon EOS SLR

My camera gives off a message: Problem with memory card. It is not full. Only two months old and I cannot format or take pictures anymore. It is fully charged. At first it gave me a error message 99. It just says error with memory card and to replace it. I don't have another to replace. They are quite expensive. Is this a faulty memory card or is it the camera?

Reformat the card in the camera then try Also use the menu system with help from the manual to establish the file size/ file type The higher the resolution the few the images able to be stored/ RAW and Tiff give but few SHQ give more HQ give even more but each with declining quality. Which is only 2 month old Card or Camera or Both? Either way having tried the alternatives if still in trouble return the 2 month old item for replacement.

Busy message and camera freezes and wont work


I am assuming you get this error after shooting a picture. Try formatting the memory card in the camera instead of the computer.

Eos rebel T3ieos 600D canon eror 70


Error 70 is something related to the data being captured and/or written to the memory card is detected as being problematic in some way... this may not be a simple memory card error, although of course that can't be ruled out. Try re-formatting the memory card in the camera.

Get message "cannot create folder"


Format the memory card in the camera, not the computer. Also, it could be a memory card issue, do other cards cause the camera to return the same message. If yes, then it well could be the camera.

My Canon SLR screen display's "No card" eventhough


Your card needs to be formatted to the camera. Once the memory card is opened on a computer to look at or download the pictures the card needs to be formatted to the camera it is going to be used in so the camera and card and properly communicate between each other.

If your cards work properly in another camera, the problem is most likely caused by one or more of the CF Card pins being bent inside your camera. Sometimes, if a card gets a small piece of sand or debris in one of the holes, it can cause it to push one of the pins in the camera straight back out of its hole.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

The pins inside the camera may be damaged. Use a flashlight to check inside the slot where the card goes
