Question about Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera
The wrong memory card was inserted in the camera (it was a smaller one). It went in and came out easily, but now the camera will not recognize the correct memory card. When the camera is turned on, the error msg 'this card cannot be used' comes up on the screen. We've tried other (correct) memory cards and get the same msg. Anything we can do to fix this? thank you! Susan
If the correct memory is compact flash, many small fragile pins are in the socket.
If one or more of these pins was bent by the incorrect module,
then the correct memory cannot work again until the pin/pins
have been repaired.
You might try removing all the batteries from the camera and
letting it sit for long enough to clear any temporary memory.
Don't forget any small button cell that might back up temporary
If the connectors are not damaged, the camera might be reset on a cold start up.
