The little internal button battery that keeps track of time is going dead. Canon will fix this for free on your model camera regardless of warranty status. Here's the link to the info:

    Have also heard that since it's a very simple fix, that they'll sometimes just ship you a replacement battery with instructions on how to change it.

I purchased a Canon PowerShot s510,I inserted the memory card but keeps saying memory error, could it be the card


It could be. Look at the menus or check your manual to find the 'Format' option. Select it and re-format the card. This will remove any problem with the card set up. If the card has been in a computer it may have been cleared or formatted there. In which case the memory card has been formatted in a way unsuitable for the camera to read it. Re-formatting will help you to eliminate the card as the cause of the problem.

I have error code #99 on a canon eos 30d


Error 99 is Canon's default for several "connection" problems most common are dirty contacts between the lens and camera body. Another is the contacts in the battery compartment both the camera and the battery contacts should be cleaned.

The camera might not be able to read the memory card, download the pictures to your computer and format the memory card don't delete them format the card this function is found in the set up menu.

Formatting is one of the most important functions to keep the camera and memory card communicating AND is the most neglected function. Always format a new memory card and always format a memory card after downloading pictures to a computer. Format a memory card if it's been in another camera.

Cleaning the lens and body contacts can be done fairly easily with a clean pencil eraser, don't use a puffer on the body as you will blow dirt into the camera. With the lens removed hold the camera as much as possible with the lens opening pointed down and gently polish the gold contacts. Do the same with the lens contacts make sure both areas are clean and re install the lens to the body.

Possibly the most important "fix" is to update your camera's firmware. Go to Canon's web site (it can be a bit intimidating at first) and search through until you find the firmware updates for your camera. Download this generally they want you to download to a memory card then place the card into the camera and upload the new firmware updates.

The Canon 30D (in my opinion) is one of the best no frills, greatest working DSLR cameras Canon produced. Not saying the model's beyond are not it's just the 30D isn't loaded down with video functions. Great all around working camera, sorry my rant for the day.

Cheers have fun with your Canon 30D

You may try to install memory card into an external reader for a pc and try to format that way. Place card in camera and connect camera to computer via usb cable and try to format that way. I had a canon that the only way to read the card was when it was in the camera, if I tried to put memory card in an external reader it would not recognize the format. Canon does some wierd things with their stuff. Good luck and if this was helpful please vote. Thanks.

Memory card error


If you get a message on your camera such as "Memory Card Error" AND there are no photos that you want still on the card, the first step is to format the card through the camera menu (Note: if you have an xD card, once you re-format your card any photos cannot be recovered.). Read your camera manual to see how to format your memory card. If this does not help, try another memory card (say the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.


If you do have valuable photos on the card, then DO NOTHING (do NOT format the card, do NOT take any more photos). You need to undertake a photo recovery. For options on Photo Recovery, click here. Once you have recovered your photos and archived them, then reformat the memory card through the camera as outlined above.

Keep us updated (remember to rate this answer).

Memory card error?


Hi, Check if other memory card is working on your camera. This is one way of checking if your memory card if still working or there is an issue wither the camera. Formatting Memory card **you should always format a new memory card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data. ** Please note that formatting a memory card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. 1. (Set up) Menu [Format]
2. Select [OK] and press FUNC SET button.
Low Level format, recommended by cannon
Select the [Low Level Format] when you think that the recording/reading speed of a memory card has dropped. A low level format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.

I am using a LEXAR memory card. I formatted it on


Are you using the camera connected to the computer via usb cord? Try using a separate card reader instead.

Canon ZR200 keeps reading "card error"


Format the card with the camera. If that doesn't work, format the card as FAT (not FAT32) file system with your PC.

Memory Card Error


Do not ever format a card.,any card via a computer That does it in. For camera use it will not be recognised. Put the card in the card reader and if there is anything at all on it delete it. Try to reformat in the camera again- failing that -new card.
