Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Canon S60 PowerShot

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 :-)

Our company camera (Canon Powershot S60) will not always download the photos we need that are in the camera although it will display the photos we have just taken.


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Canon A620 LCD shows "memory card locked" for each card I insert


This worked for me!  I have the Canon Powershot SD780 IS and although my card WAS NOT locked, the camera "malfunctioned" and the switch in the camera needed to be gently pushed back IN, not DOWN on my specific camera type.  This is great, I was just going to go out and buy another camera today!  Thanks for the post Stephan!

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).

The memory card may be failing. Recommend trying a different memory card to verify. Do you still have the original low value card that came with the camera? If so, try that one to see if you still have the problem. If that one checks fine, then you know it's time for a new card.

Memory card error


Canon will fix this for you for free. It's an inherent fault with the S400. It has a little internal button battery that causes the problem as it gets old and run down. Check this website for more info. Look for the bright/bold yellow post describing how to return to Canon.

Good Luck!
