Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera
My camera (one year old) shows message "no memory card" although the original card has never been removed. We removed the card once the message came up, replaced it with another Canon card, and the same message persisted. Replaced the original card, and message returned as usual, "no memord card." Called Canon and was advised service would be about $119 plus shipping. Shocking to say the least. We've purchased about 4 Canon cameras (gifts) in the last 3 years. I can be reached at Gloriaandchuck@att.net. Thank you.
Oh - just discovered something even easier.
I took the battery out - the rechargeable camera battery pack that is.
Left it out for about 10 minutes - problem solved.
I also plugged the camera into USB for a while too - don't know if that was relevant but maybe it charged the internal battery?

Had the same problem and found this on another website:
"Every 2 or 3 years you will need to replace the internal battery to fix the "memory card error". The battery is an Energizer 339 also known as a SR614SW 1.55 volts. Call around to watch repair shops. Radio Shack and Circuit City do not carry this battery...
A few comments, there are ELEVEN not nine screws, and I would suggest marking the body of the camera with a thin permanent marker BEFOREHAND. The screws appear to be of different depths and thicknesses. Have a big clear flat surface to work on. As you take out the screws, line up the screws as you take them out. When replacing the front casing, make sure to put the A/V Out rubber flap back in place. Before replacing the back casing, make sure you line up the camera/play switch inside and out. "
Hope this helps :-)
