Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

Reads card error or turns off once i insert memory - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Casio EX-Z55. When a memory card is in camera, the screen reads 'card error' and the camera is unusable.

The above says to try another card. If that doesn't work try to send the camera in to Casio.com for evaluation.

I wish you luck in repairing this camera.

Casio exilim Z75 When camera is on screen reads


Sounds as though the sd card release spring has broken (in the camera card slot.) Perhaps a pair of tweezers and a good pull will get it out? The card not the broken side spring. Hope this helps!

Card error


Try turning off the camera. While it's off remove and reinsert the memory card. If the same message appears, you should re-format the memory card. CAUTION: Formatting the memory card will delete anything on it. Copy the files off of it before formatting.

Card Error


try going to wolf camera or ritz camera they have a 512 meg chip for about 8 bucks put it in your camera and see if you can format it and take pictures. I have seen in the past that the 2 gig chips are frauds they are smaller chips formatted to a 2 gig compositor. They have been going around quite abit. if that does not work then the camera has a defective sd port and should be able to be replaced from where you got it. if they will not repair it then call casio you can find their number at www.casio.com/us then under contact us. Casio should fix it if you bought it from a retail store send them your receipt. That what they ask for to see when the warranty started. Hope this helps.

Make sure you format your memory card before you try to use it other wise it will save the pics to ur internal memory instead of the mem card.
