    I have a Canon Powershot A70. It will power up fine when the memory card is out, but it is dead with the memory card in place. I have tried different memory cards with the same result.

    I have the exact same problem with my PowerShot A75 - when there is no memory card in place it turns on fine but when I insert a memory card and close the door tightly it is dead. Help!

  • 6 Answers may be an issue with the motherboard. Easiest way to find out...remove the card and battery. Let the camera sit overnight. Before placing the card and battery back in the power button and hold it down for 15 seconds. Release it...put battery and card back in. If that doesn't fix have serious problems.

Throw your VuPoint DC-C310-VP away...its not worth the time to fix or get drivers.

The camera works fine without a card in, but when the memory card is put in it doesnt. i changed the card and no difference. PLEEASE HELP

The cause and solution may include one of the following:
  1. The card may not be certified SD. Please purchase a certified SD memory card. For example: Sandisk, Toshiba, Panasonic, etc.
  2. The card may be corrupt. Reformat the memory card.
    CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
  3. The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.
