This error indicates a memory problem.
The camera can't read or write data to the memory card. Try turning off and on the camera again, or take out and reinsert the memory card several times. Also remove and reinsert the battery.
It also can mean the memory card is not formatted, or there is a format error for an other reason. Format the internal memory or the memory card.
It also could mean the memory card is damaged and can't be used any more. Then you have to place a new memory card.
I hope something will help.
This is also in you user manual.
This a situation the manual not even mentions. The red light on the bottom right of the camera is the memory access indicator. It should light green as I remember ok. And blink when it is writing to or reading from the memory. If it is red, it means : this is not ok.
This light is not a gadget. It should be taken serious. As long as it is burning, of flashing you are not supposed to switch of the camera or to remove the memory card. If you still open the memory compartment or switch of the camera or remove the battery, while the camera indicates I'n accessing the memory, serious damage can occur to the memory card.
You could lose all your pictures, because of it.
I would suggest, make sure your battery is charged correctly.
Format your memory card in a PC with FAT 32.
Check if al contacts in the camera are clean and shiny. (Battery and memory card contacts too)
The place the battery and the memory card in the camera and try switching it on again. If it should start, first do a format of the memory card in the camera before you starts taking pictures, of the camera has its own format and can make a folder.
You should be able to switch on the camera without a memory card inside. The camera will us the internal buffer, to let you take a picture in DEMO mode.
I hope the red light does not indicate your internal memory is corrupted. Because if nothing helps and the red light comes back, I think you should contact a Canon service centre.
Hello,E5700does notsavepicturesininternalmemory,usesonlyCFcard. Does thememorycardisfull capacity? What storage capacity is the new card? It is likely that your camera can not handle a larger CF of 128Mb (frankly dont remember). Alsothisindicationmay bebya malfunctionof the card oranydamageto the connectoronthe camera,aspinbent orcollapsed. Best regards
Three beeps indicates a low battery or other warning. It also indicates error messages, such as memory full or card error. You should try replacing the batteries, erasing files from the memory, or verifying that your memory card is in the correct format and/or not defective. Additional details can be found in the owner's manual.
Try formatting your camera memory card
If you own camera memory cards that have been used in other digital cameras, the card may not be properly formatted for use in your camera, or that data on the card may become corrupted. When these issues arise, your camera indicates that the camera memory card needs to be formatted.
When you format a camera memory card, all of the information on the card is erased. This includes any borders supplied on the card.
Set the Mode dial to Camera Setup.
Slide the POWER switch to the right to turn on the camera.
The main Camera Setup screen appears.
Press a button until the icon is highlighted.
Press the DO-IT button.
The Format Memory Card screen appears.
Press a button until CONTINUE FORMAT is highlighted.
Press the DO-IT button to format the camera memory card and return to the main Camera Setup screen.
Follow the steps below in the order presented:
Perform a power reset on the camera.
Performing a power reset on the digital camera will normally correct issues such as the camera locking up or not turning off. When the power reset is performed properly, the camera will prompt you to update the camera’s date and time. This is an indication that the memory has been cleared and no further reset time is required.
The power reset procedure must only be performed on a camera that has been running on battery power. If an AC power adapter is being used, the power reset procedure does not apply. This is due to the fact that the internal capacitor is fully charged. To execute a camera power reset, perform the following steps:
Turn off the Digital Camera.
Remove the Compact Flash Card or Secure Digital Card, if one is being used.
Turn on the Digital Camera.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the camera, ensure the shutter button is not pressed during the following steps.
Turn on Live View on the rear LCD.
CAUTION: Care should be used when performing Step 5 to ensure that the camera is not dropped.
Open the battery door and remove the batteries with the camera turned on.
Re-insert the batteries after five minutes have elapsed.
Turn on the camera. The camera should request an update for date and time (with the exception of the HP Photosmart 120 and 912 series cameras).
Format the memory card.
Navigate to the delete menu which varies with each camera, and format the internal memory and/or the memory card.
CAUTION: Reformatting the memory card erases all of the files that are stored in the card. All photos, scripts, and miscellaneous files are deleted permanently. To preserve the existing images, use a spare card or a card that is already formatted.
This error message indicates that there is no more space on the memory card in the camera.
To resolve this problem, do one of the following:
Turn off the camera and insert a new memory card.
Transfer or delete pictures from the memory card.
Change the storage location to use the internal memory.
