The problem you are describing is a problem with the memory card slot in the camera. It may be that a pin inside the slot has been damaged and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $73 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Memory card does not get in


make sure you're putting it in the right way round. if you're trying the right way then it will slip in easily, if it's the wrong way it will just jam and the lid won't close

What if my nokia 5130 xpressMusic won't open because of too much sms?


remove your sim card. try using different sim card just to open the phone. then set the default storage for the messages to the memory card. then return your original sim card. when you open inbox you will notice all messages is gone. then set again the default storage of messages to the sim card to bring back your messages.

Cha flashing when new memory card inserted... have tried several to no avail... please can you help?


CH A error indicates that the camera can not communicate with the memory card. Most often this is caused by formatting a memory card in a computer and then putting it into the camera. (Especially on 4 + gb cards). Solution is 1. Reset the camera - then it should work with cards that it worked with in the past. 2. Take the bad memory card and reformat it in your computer to FAT not FAT 32.

It should now work - although it will show capacity to be only 2 gb...

I believe at that point, if you reformat it in camera it will work at the full 4 gb.

This device requires a separate memory card. These usually come with just enough memory for a few pictures and short videos.

Under the battery cover there should be an opening to add a memory card. usually an SD card.
Take the camera to a local radio shack and ask for a memory card. The clerk will know what to get for you. (i hope)

Target and perhaps walmart can help. You can find these cards also at best buy for about $10 to $50.. remeber the large amount the card can store.. the larger the price tag.

Best Wishes

Memory Card


They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go into the camera first. The memory cards will only seat if they are inserted correctly, so if it goes in far enough to close the cover, you have it in right.

Just bought the camera. I bought 2.0 GB of memory (San Disk)


I'm sorry but it is hard to understand your problem. Did you try to remove the card and see if there is any dirt or something blocking the contacts? Also if the camera will not format the card try pluging the camera into your PC and right click on the icon labled "Removable Disk (E:)" (the "E" may be a different letter) and the click on the Format... option that appears (about halfway down the list that pops up) and click start and click "OK" on the warning that pops up.

Memory card wont lock in


its because the spring whick locks the memory card has some fault thus it will lock only if given a force which keeps it in place thus the battery cover is providing that force and this can be left as such no problem will be there and can be rectified by visiting an auth. technician and repairing it
