My camera works perfectly when there is no memory card in it but as soon as I put a memory card in it will not power up and the screen shows nothing, and I cannot take photo's. The battery's work and so do the memory cards
Also the SSWF occasionaly flashes
I have 2 freshely charged battery's and 2 memory cards and have tried combinations of them all with no change.

Carefully scrutinise the battery/memory card cover. In the camera is a switch that supposes to tell the camera if the door is locked correct or not. Perhaps something is blocking the correct working of that switch. Clean the inside of the battery / memory card holder and its door.
Open and close the door several times and hope he switch starts working as it should. I hope there is no spring broken or blocked.
Check to make sure the batteries are inserted correctly. Clean the battery terminals with a dry cotton swab that has a fine and soft tip,
and then re-insert the batteries.If the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is not securely closed,
the power of the camera may not turn on.Close the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] securely, and then turn
the power on. If your camera still does not work even after you have performed the above
procedures, your camera may be malfunctioning. Please have the camera serviced
in this case.
Resetting the camera
If your camera does not respond when you press any
buttons, try resetting the camera as follows:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. If you have an optional memory card installed, remove it.
(Although removing an optional memory card is not
necessary for performing the reset, it eliminates the
memory card as a possible cause of the problem.)
3. Remove the batteries from the camera for 5 to 10
4. Reinsert the batteries and close the Battery/Memory card
5. After verifying that the camera works without an optional
memory card, turn off the camera and reinsert the card if
you have one.
