Cannot get the card to work properly

Accidentally I openned the card door and slipped it out, after that I introduced the card again and closed the door and then I couldnt get the camera to work since it didnt read the card. What can i Do ? I am trying to use a 2gb mem card in my Olympus 740 Ultra Zoom. The format screen comes up when power comes on but the card won't format and gives a "Card Error" message. This is the second card I have tried. Will my camera not work with a card of the 2gb size? I can find no reference on line or in the Operating instructions on this .

HI,

Please follow the following steps to fix the problem:

1)Go HERE to download the program "Card Wiper"


2) run the program and choose the SM card to WIPE. It fills Zero's into it and thus likes LOW LEVEL FORMAT the SM card.


3) After wiping the card, insert the card into your camera.


4)The camera should display "cannot initiate the card" or so (not CARD ERROR!!!), and then you should probably format the card using your cam and make the card alive again.


Goodluck..

JimmieReb,

Try formatting your original card in a PC - use FAT file system.

Then re-insert it into the Camera.

Dropped my Leica


Hi,

Try the steps given below:
1 Remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should work.
2 The next thing to try is examining both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors that activates when the doors are closed. It will be a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be a jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.

If you still face the problem then there is some internal problem in camera, you need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

I turned on powershot then opened the battery


If you install fresh batteries, close the battery door the lens should retract. If it did not, make sure the batteries installed are properly. And don't do that again you will lose all pictures on the card and may ruin the card permenently.

Fujufilm S700 won't power on. New batteries and are in correctly. Battery door closed properly, however, the door covering the SD is broken in half. Will this cause the camera not to power on?


Yes it will. The door activates a micro switch that cuts power to the camera when open to prevent accidental removal of the card and loss of pictures stored on the card. You can bypass this switch with either a solder "bridge" or remove the switch and use a piece of wire to bridge the pads on the board.

Stuck battery/ScanDisk card


Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,

DISH WASHER, STILL HAS A LEAK FROM THE DOOR.


Once the gasket is in place, check it for fit against the door frame. It should fit tightly with no cracks or bulges between the gasket and the frame. If necessary, tighten or loosen the retaining screws, or refit the gasket in the clips or the door channel. Then run the machine through a washing sequence and check for leaks.

If you spot a leak, and the gasket seems to be properly in place, try adjusting the door latch. The trick is to position the gasket against the frame of the door without flattening the gasket or squeezing it too flat when the door is latched properly. Adjust the latch or the gasket until it fits snugly against the door frame.


Servicing the Door Latch

The latch on a dishwasher door is opened and closed repeatedly, and this hard use can lead to mechanical problems. The latch may be loose, or it may have slipped out of position, throwing the alignment off and preventing the door from closing properly. When this happens, the latch does not engage properly, and the dishwasher will not start.

In many cases, you may be able to solve the problem by adjusting the position of the latch. Move the latch slightly by loosening the screws that hold it. Slide the latch with your fingers or pliers; the screw slots are made especially for this purpose. Close and open the door to see whether the latch is properly aligned. Tighten the screws to hold it in the correct position.

After repositioning the latch, check to see if it's working properly. Close and latch the door and turn the control knob to the ON position. If the dishwasher doesn't start, the latch is faulty. Replace it with a new latch, connecting it the same way the old one was connected. You may have to move the new latch back and forth several times before it works properly.

Camera battery clip


Well, I got the latch and spring back into my DX7630, and so far (half an hour after) so good.

To do this, I had a replacement latch from U.S. Camera ($10 total, latch plus shipping and handling) and the original spring on hand. I took all of the eight screws holding the camera body together. I also pulled off the "rubber" hand grip on the front of the camera. I'm not sure if that was necessary or not, but in doing it I broke off one of the "claws" that secure the grip.

Then I turned the camera so the battery door was on top, opened the door, and gently pried the camera body halves apart. I used "square" wooden toothpicks to hold the body apart so I could get at the latch area. (The battery was not in the camera during all this work.)

There are two small slots in the camera body where the latch is held and pivots. The latch pivots can be slipped into those slots if the toothpicks have the body wedged open widely enough.

The hard part of the assembly is getting that latch spring properly mounted. The spring fits over the rod of the latch. The spring wire has two ends: one is shorter. The shorter-end goes behind the latch on the memory card side. The longer-end makes the job difficult. It must be held so that the spring is under tension while the battery side latch pivot is slipped into its slot, then the memory card side latch pivot is slipped into its slot. The longer spring-end presses against the camera body.

The latch and spring only flew away into the darkness of this room once during the effort, and that happened because I tested the latch a few times before closing the camera body. The body halves should be closed before doing any latch testing.

I put all the screws back into the camera snapped the rubber hand grip back in, put in a battery and a memory card, and at this writing, all seems to be working as designed. Hooray!

Cannot get the card to work properly


The card should not fall out as they are held in with a spring lock they need a push down to pop up to pull out- so I wonder if you have correctly installed the card ? Have you tried reformat? or another card?

Battery Problem after very few Photos


Very likely Take batteries out and with the eraser at the end of the pencil gently polish the contacts. Do the same with the lid contacts plate. Close it and try. If it will only work with the lid being pressed try this Take a piece of foil and lay it across the batteries then close the lid this will help pack out the contact. BE careful however if the contact plate covers 4 batteries and is in two pieces make sure there are two separate pieces and do not let them touch
