Re: Please help: readout says "no memory space" but...

On your camera there is a wheel that allows you choose between Normal picture, Review, Setup and Scene Modes. That wheel is the MODE DIAL. 

Once you find the wheel just follow the instructions given ealier then your problem will be over.  Settle down, take the camera and have a relaxed time solving your problem.  Meantime do not worry about the manual I am sure you will find it.

Do not hesitate to write again if you were not successful.  Have a great day.

When you copy pictures to your computer you still have the pictures on your camera so there is need to clean them up my reformatting memory stick.   This procedure will leave the memory stick clean and ready for a new set of pictures.  Here is how you reformat the memory stick-:

1.  Insert the memory stick to be cleaned/formatted in the camera

2.  Turn the MODE DIAL to the SETUP position on the camera

3.  Switch on the camera


5.  Press the centre of the CONTROL BUTTON

6.  Select FORMAT by using the down arrow and up arrow

7. Choose OK by moving the right arrow button

8.  Finally press the centre of the CONTROL BUTTON and this will start reformatting the MEMORY STICK and it will ready for reuse.  

Enjoy your new space in your Memory Stick!

No memory space, in an empty memory stick..

Go into settings and find the option to "Format" your memory card. If you cannot find it by scrolling through, look in the table of contents in the users manual - look for "format..." if nothing under format, look under "memory stick" and if it doesn't list a sub-topic of format with page # there, just go to the page it lists for memory stick, and go page by page until you find instructions on how to format.
I did a quick search of Kodak's web site and it looks like they don't have a manual posted for your model, or I'd have just copied and pasted instruction specific to your model.

This sometimes happens if you delete the folders on the memory stick or card, other times they can be corrupted temporarily or permanently by inserting/removing the memory while the camera is on. Sometimes you can do that w/o any probs 999 times, and it's only that 1000th time that messes it up. Safest to always power down camera before inserting/removing memory.
If this doesn't work, post again.
There are other things to try if that doesn't fix it, but 99% chance it will.

No memory space in internal memory-no more pictures can be taken!

there may be two problems. 1. Format your card before using it. 2. Switch your storage device to memory card and it will work. Hope it works..:))

If you have backed up your files/ fotos, then format the memory stick/ card.

If you haven't been using the "safely remove hardware" procedure you may be damaging either your stick, your computer's ability to read it, or both. Try reading it on another computer. The same thing happened to my flash drive. It began to work intermittantly, so I replaced it. I now use the "safely remove hardware" procedure and have yet to have any more problems. I replaced my flash drive, you may need to replace the stick, but format it in the camera to see if this helps.

Memory stick error

your memory card has a virus! try formatting using camera. make it a habit that whenever you reinsert the memory card in your camera format it first before taking shots, this will erase everything including virus!
