Re: keeps saying memory is full


My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to error message  that " Memory is Full "  . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

I guess that this could be your error message " Card full
or Memory full". The possible cause could be Insufficient room in internal memory or on the memory card to save more images. To resolve the issue please unload images from the camera to your computer, then delete all images from the memory card or internal memory. Or put a new memory card in the camera.

Please try to Power Reset the Camera once,  I hope this could work on AF flashing issue.

Steps are:
Resetting the camera can correct many issues, such as the camera locking up or not turning off. The reset drains the power and, in some cases, causes the camera settings to revert to factory defaults.



Resetting the camera returns all settings to the factory defaults. Any images or video clips stored in memory are retained.

Perform a power reset of the camera

Follow the instructions below to reset your HP Photosmart camera.

  1. Press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds.
  2. Release the Power button.
  3. Press the Power button to turn on the camera.
  4. When the camera turns on, you might be prompted to set the date and time.



When turning on the camera normally, press and immediately release the power button. If the power button is held for more than five seconds while turning on the camera, the camera might reset automatically while the lens is extending.

I found more information related to the AF Flashing that you are referring. Please open below link .

Once if you open the link, please go through the information I guess that this should help you and will resolve the issue.

However, if the issue still persists then I recommend you to contact HP Support team on this issue. Because their expertise would help you better. For your convenience  I would like to provide a web link to contact HP Online Chat Technician.

This should resolve the issue for you.

Why does it keep saying memory full after I have only taken 6 pictures

You need to go to the store and buy Samsung S730 A-DATA 4GB SDHC Memory Card (Class 4)
It is worth about 8-20$. The memory card is used to save pictures. Here is an example:

It keeps saying memory card is full. Bought a new memory card and put in and it still says the card is full.

Are you sure that isn't "internal" memory card is full message?

Sometimes, when "internal memory card is full" there is no more space in the camera's internal memory. Your camera has 16 MB of internal memory. The number of pictures you can store depends on the picture size setting you have selected on your camera. Keep in mind that the camera always uses internal memory, even if a card is installed (auto default).

If really, the problem is in the "SD memory card", I suggest make some backup all files and reformat the SD. Try formatting it in the camera, there should be a process in your owners manual for doing this; donw formatted SD in your computer, isn't good.

Hope helps.

Finepix a600, in memory full, won't take photos

Connect it to your PC, using the USB cable provided.

Click on my computer, you should see another HDD drive appear, it may be called Fuji or mass storage device.

Double click on that, you'll see folder, double click on that you should see the pictures stored on the internal memory of your camera.

Says memory card is full but there are no pictures on it or i put new card in and it only will allow 10 picts and says its full

Are there pics on the internal memory? If so, they must be removed by formatting the internal memory with no card in the camera. Then go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert your new card and format it in the camera.

I CAN ONLY TAKE 10 pictures and then it says memory full. i used to be able to take 200 pics

You need to reset the size of your pictures (to a lower resolution). This will allow the camera to take more pictures (albeit at a lower resolution) per memory card. The less pixels, the more pictures.

Camera want take pictures keeps saying its full

Please check the settings on your camera if it has any option to switch between the internal and external memory card. Probably the internal memory is under selection.

Move pictures saved in camera to card

Best thing to do is upload them to your computer. The camera does not allow you to move from camera memory to card.
