Its a problem with your flex ribbon, you need to replace it with something like that:

Memory Error appears on screen


Just had this problem myself. What you do is press the Mode button twice until it shows a black background with the words Memory Error on top of it (this should be the picture preview mode). Then press the Menu button and press the 4-way button right to enter the Setup Menu. Go down and Format the camera and that will fix it.

Good luck.
