Question about Canon EOS 600D Rebel T3i Digital Camera

Open Question

Memory card slot broken?

When I insert the memory card into the slot it doesn't lock, just pops back up. However when you close the door on it, the camera still reads it as normal and still takes pictures. What causes this? Is it a spring? I have multiple dslrs and the Rebel is my primary that goes everywhere so this saddens me. I hope it can be fixed.

SOURCE: memory card error

Check the slot and see if the pins inside are fine, no breakages, free from dust etc. Try turning the camera on and off (completely remove batteries etc).

SOURCE: Memory Card Locked.... how do I un-lock it?

Your memory card has a small white "switch" on the side. Move the switch and your card will unlock. It is a saftey so you don't erase anything accidentaly.

You will need to read the manual. I f you have a basic understanding of how ISO, shutterspeed & Aperture width combine to determine the 'right exposure.

Try this:
Set the camera to Av (aperture priority mode). Half press the shutter button and see the light meter indicator to see how well exposed your shot will be. For most cases you would be aiming for a value of 0 (properly exposed). The metering mode determines what part of the frame is used to compute the correct amount of light. For starters begin with pattern metering. Try and aim for a shutter speed of 1/125 or more if you are using the 17-55 mm EF-S f3/5-f5.6. Try and shoot at 40 mm F/5.6 (in Av mode this can be set by rotating the dial near the shutter button.
All the best

SOURCE: Camera reading memory card error, cannot get it to work. Tried removeing the card and replacing batteries. Checked and it is not locked.

try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.

I can not insert the memory card into my camera


Card slot should be on the right. Make sure you have the correct type of memory card. a SD SDHC or SDXC. They should be 1"x 1.25" or 25mmx32mm. Ensure there is no card in the slot. insert as per pic inside the door with cutoff corner end first and facing up.
once securely in, to remove depress it a little and it should pop back out.
Note if the card does go in but cannot be written to, there may be a write lock slide on the side of the card. up is unlocked.
If you are still stuck then I would stop by a camera shop they should be able to sort you in seconds.

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860


The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

Show your memory card location


Remove the back cover by holding the phone firmly then slide in the back cover of the handset. You will now see your MicroSD and SIM card slots. Take your SIM card and slide it into the slot provided with the chip facing down. You will also see a small diagram showing you which way to insert the SIM card. Now slide open your MicroSD memory card slot gate, pop your MicroSD memory card into the slot, then close the MicroSD memory card slot gate by sliding it forward then backwards.

Memory card will not release does contact portion (metal face the back of the camera)?


Yes it does face the back of the camera. Try this: turn the camera over so that the battery/card slot door is facing to the right. When you open the door you should see the batteries first then the slot for your sd card. If you insert the card into the slot from this position the card label should be facing you with the notch in the card facing to the left, this should be how you insert your card. I believe it is on Page 15 of your instruction manual.

If the card is facing with the contacts towards you then it is inserted incorrectly. If you have inserted it correctly then the card is spring loaded so gently push down on the sd card and it should pop up if it doesn't then it is jammed.

If it is jammed you can try to remove it yourself with a pair of needle nose tweezers or you might just have to send it off to canon service center or your local repair/camera shop to remove the card and hope that you have not damaged the camera itself.

Hello

  1. Open the camera memory card door on the side of the camera.

  2. Insert the camera memory card into the slot with the connecting end of the card facing the camera, and the lip on the card facing toward the front of the camera. CAUTION: The camera memory card can only be inserted one way into the camera. Forcing the card in the wrong way may damage your camera.
  3. Push the camera memory card all of the way into the card slot and then close the door. Make sure that no dirt is present when you close the door.

What does no card mean? Thank you.


"No card" means that either
  1. You have not inserted a memory card
  2. The memory card is not formatted, or
  3. The memory card is damaged and therefore can't be read by the camera.
How to insert the memory card:
  1. Open the camera’s battery door by sliding it downwards.
  2. Insert the SD card into the slot as shown inside the camera’s battery compartment. The SD card can only be inserted one way.
  3. Press the SD card completely into the camera and then close the door. Open the door and press on the memory card if you wish to remove it.
Note: There is only one way to insert the SD memory card into the slot. Do not force the card into the slot. This may damage both the camera and the SD memory card.

Before you can use the card, it has to be formatted:
  1. Insert the memory card into your camera as described above.
  2. Turn the camera on by pressing the power button.
  3. Use the multi-select button to select the "SET" option.
  4. Press the right arrow button to set "System" then press down key to select "Format".
  5. The default option is ‘Format’. Select this option by pressing the OK button.
  6. Select "Yes" to format the card.
If all this does not work it might be that your SD card is damaged. Try to replace it with another one. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My vivitarN1659 will not reconize a1gb memory card and either states that the memory is full or that the memory is locked


There should be a tiny lever on the side of the memory card. Unlock the card by pushing the lever up. If it still says memory card is full, take out the battery and push the memory card further into the slot. It should not move while it is in the slot. If it "floats" when you close the battery door, it is not down far enough into the slot. Return the battery and close the door.
