Question about Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

1 Answer

Will using a SD card from another camera mess up my Canon? Seems ever since I borrowed a SD card my camera has been totally messed up.

Flash goes off several times upon turning camera on, the MENU button won't function and more.

As long as it is the right card for your camera you shouldn't have a problem. Try removing it and installing a smaller card, (make sure you power down the Camera 1st).

SOURCE: Canon S70 does not work

I was experiencing the same problem - I think the Button and Zoom had become jammed down slightly. I simply lightly applied pressure lifting the surround of the button up! My camera is now working perfectly.

SOURCE: Canon Power Shot A400 will only work with original Canon SD card

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display

Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

SOURCE: How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera

Could be that you have the wrong memory card.
SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.
SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb.  Different cameras have different limits, but it is always best to assume that the practical limit on an SD card is 2mb.  Even if the SD780 will take the SDHC cards, it can be more practical to only carry 2GB SD cards and know that they will fit either camera

SOURCE: Can I use 8GB SD cards in my Canon Powershot A620

The A620 uses MMC and SD cards. SD cards max out at 2GB in size. Larger cards are actually SDHC or SDXC cards and will not work in the A620.

If your old memory card was "busted" is it possible youhave damaged the memory card holder/reader in the camera?
Anyway, seems memory card problems are not uncommon with this camera.
It might be worth your while to have a look at http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eos
This enables a firmware update which may (or may not) fix your problem.

My Nikon d80 shows the msg as card is locked,how ever i tried to solve the problem by sliding it to write position.Can someone can help me rite now?


Here is a diagram to show the correct position of the switch.

Good big picture and it doesn't matter that it has Canon written on the SD card in the picture the SD card is interchangeable between the two makes.

Now one other thing that may also be the problem is that the SD card needs to be formatted to the camera. Formatting should be done on new memory cards and after you have downloaded pictures to the computer. That's format not delete, delete leaves a mess on the card Formatting cleans the card and provides proper communications between the camera and the memory card

Card locked!


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Older Vivitar Flash for new Canon SX10


Not compatible.
Get slave triggers and use them as remote flashes, or buy another film camera.
It seems Vivitar no longer is in the flash business. Get a Sigma or Sunpak digital flash for your SX10

This camera uses SD cards if I remember correctly, and most laptops have an SD card slot. Try taking the SD card out of the camera and popping it into the SD card slot on your laptop to see if you can get your pictures that way. Much quicker and easier than messing about with USB cables...
