SOURCE: I cannot take any pictures, beacause the camera

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link. The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position, or problems the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card).

Have you ever tried to insert SD into computer to check if it's OK? If the card itself is OK try to 'factory reset' the device, then re-format SD card within the device.

Phone "freezes up".

You may have a handset that has a small size onboard memory. Try deleting some of the non-important applications. Then buy an SD card..assuming your handset has an SD card slot. Reinstall the deleted Apps again and save it ti the SD card instead of the phone memory.
HOo to settings - Applications - Scroll through and delete applications that you have installed. DO NOT DELETE ANY SYSTEM FILES.
WORST CASE SCENARIO is to do a factory reset. Make sure the battery is fully charged.Go to settings - Security - Factory reset. The phone will shut down and reset to factory settings. When phone reboot, all installed Apps will be deleted and the phone will only have the Apps that it had or should have at the time of purchase. You will then be able to insert your SD card and install additional Apps to the SD card.
Hope this helps.

Samsung factory reset

The easiest way to perform a Factory Reset on your Samsung Galaxy S4 is from within the menu settings:

Settings > Accounts > Back Up and Reset > Factory Data Reset > Reset Device > Delete All/Erase Everything.

Please remember to back up any data you want to keep first! In the Factory reset screen you also have the option to Backup My Data and Auto Restore. These are good options to tick before you Factory Reset if you're not too sure how to do this on your own.

If you're at all paranoid about your SIM card or SD card contents just take them out before you do the Factory Reset. Attention: if you reset your device to the factory default with SD card encryption setting enabled, the device will not be able to read your encrypted files. Disable this setting before resetting the device.

Alternatively, you can type in *2767*3855# on the key pad and that will do the same thing.

Remember sometimes you don't need to go even this far to solve problems. First of all try just turning your phone off for a while, or removing the battery entirely. Sometimes something as simple as that is enough to clear up some simple problems.

But if you've tried all of these methods and are still having problems, you can try a Hard Reset, the instructions for which are here.

Keypad won't work sideways on my zte warp

Try resetting the device to factory defaults and that should resolve the issue. Please make sure that you have a back up of all the information and the SD card is removed before resetting Menu Key > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset > Reset phone(Don't check Erase SD Card)> Erase everything. The phone will reboot automatically.

Maybe you can try to reset the phone back to factory settings (you'll lose all your data!!): 'Home' > 'Settings' > 'SD card & phone storage,' then select 'Factory data reset.'

if reemoving and reinserting the card doesnt help, youll need to have it reformatted....

do this by connecting your phone to the pc and opening your MY COMPUTER icon > right click REMOVABLE STORAGE/DISK > select FORMAT

**if your computer says something like 'no disk available' try disconnecting the device and select MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > make sure the check bos for 'USE FOR USB STORAGE' is checked****

after that, set the 'file systems' as FAT32 > select START > read the warning > press OK > once complete, disconnect from the pc and try again!

IF that doesnt work, try to test the sd card in another phone to see if the sd card itself is the problem. if you still have the issue but the sd card works, go ahead and reset the phone.
