According to ehow:

Turn off your Canon 1000D and remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery. The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger on the battery and pulling it toward you.
  • Place the body cap on your camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
  • Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
  • Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
  • Press the shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself. The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
  • Turn off the camera and insert the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release again.
  • Turn off the camera and reattach the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
  • Turn the camera so that it is face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
  • Turn the lens so that the side that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any eraser scraps fall into the lens.
  • Reattach the lens to the camera. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.

    I had deleted the photos then charged the battery. when i turned on the camera to take photos it wouldn't let me shoot and the screen say's Card locked


    There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the 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). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

    Internal memory is full,I have erased all


    Take out memory card from camera, format internal memory to delete all pictures at once or delete them one by one.
    Once memory card is inserted in camera, internal memory is no longer available to store/ delete pictures so remove memory card from camera to get access to internal memory.

    Fuji f470 camera will not turn on. It was beeping and


    Here are a couple of things that might be wrong. Your camera comes with what is called "internal memory" This is where your pictures will be stored if you don't have a XD card. One of the reasons your camera might be blinking is because that internal memory is full. If you don't have a XD card inserted in the slot that may be your problem. I would get your manual out and look up on how to transfer your photos from your camera to your computer or how to deleat them. I found this information on page 25 of the user manual for your camera. Page 31 shows how to erase the images. Hope this helps.

    No memory card, set time


    The date/time battery is "built in" (not replaceable) to this model according to page 13 in the manual (available here). It is supposed to recharge when you have the regular battery installed, but if you leave the regular battery out for more than "approximately three weeks", the internal battery may go flat.

    I'm not sure this has anything to do with the memory card issue, though. Check the battery problem by inserting a freshly charged battery, turning on the camera and setting the correct date and time, then turning off the camera and waiting an hour or so (with the main battery still in the camera). Turn the camera back on, and if the date and time have to be reset again, your internal battery may be bad, and the camera would need to be serviced.

    Problem with taking picture with SD card


    The only thing I can recommend is using the brands of memory cards that Casio recommends. They are Panasonic, San Disc, Toshiba. Make sure the card is formatted with the camera before use.

    When a camera is inoperable or fails to function, or an error code appears in the liquid crystal display (LCD)


    Follow the steps below in the order presented: Perform a power reset on the camera. Performing a power reset on the digital camera will normally correct issues such as the camera locking up or not turning off. When the power reset is performed properly, the camera will prompt you to update the camera’s date and time. This is an indication that the memory has been cleared and no further reset time is required. The power reset procedure must only be performed on a camera that has been running on battery power. If an AC power adapter is being used, the power reset procedure does not apply. This is due to the fact that the internal capacitor is fully charged. To execute a camera power reset, perform the following steps: Turn off the Digital Camera. Remove the Compact Flash Card or Secure Digital Card, if one is being used. Turn on the Digital Camera. CAUTION: To avoid damaging the camera, ensure the shutter button is not pressed during the following steps. Turn on Live View on the rear LCD. CAUTION: Care should be used when performing Step 5 to ensure that the camera is not dropped. Open the battery door and remove the batteries with the camera turned on. Re-insert the batteries after five minutes have elapsed. Turn on the camera. The camera should request an update for date and time (with the exception of the HP Photosmart 120 and 912 series cameras). Format the memory card. Navigate to the delete menu which varies with each camera, and format the internal memory and/or the memory card. CAUTION: Reformatting the memory card erases all of the files that are stored in the card. All photos, scripts, and miscellaneous files are deleted permanently. To preserve the existing images, use a spare card or a card that is already formatted.
