Sony DSC-P32 Memory Stick Error, "C:13:01"? When I went to review pics on memory card, camera would not scroll through and it would immediately shut off. Assuming it was the batteries, I...


The C:13:01 error code is the self diagnosis display of the camera to identify the cause of the issue with the Camera. This error code indicates the issue with the medium used in the Camera. You can try few steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try using different Memory Stick in the Camera.
Make sure that the Memory Stick used is compatible with the Camera. (The maximum capacity that can be used in the Camera is of 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo.)
Format the Memory Stick in the Camera and check if it works. (Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the files saved in it).
This may happen if the files in the Memory Stick is damaged or corrupted.
Try turning the camera power off and on.
Remove and re-insert the Memory Stick several times.
Insert another Memory Stick in the Camera to check if the issue is with the particular Memory Stick.
Try resetting the Camera and check if it helps. To reset the Camera, press the RESET button located inside the jack cover using a sharp pointed object.

If the issue happens with different Memory Sticks after performing all the steps, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade

This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.


You must count the beeps.

Memory full message in error

Remove some pictures from the memory stick Or copy them to your computer. Actually your memory stick is full. If you have no memory stick in the cam then purchase a new one for it. The cam memory is not enough to store many pictures.
