Probably it does not sees the card ...and put the picks on the internal memory ...
check on the menu to see the storage device feature ..and change it on the card ...Another thing ...get the card out and see if it is not locked..The SD cards have a locking device on the side and if they are on the locked position ..this secures the data and the camera can not delete or store any picture on it ...., so thi smay cause it to store on the internal memory and so to give you the full memory error..

Will not take pictures camera saying full when memory card is not full also when no memory card is in camera


Your camera is talking about its internal memory. If you want the card to start working, you must get rid of the pics on the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Says internal memory is full. how do I clear it


You have to delete the pictures in the memory using the camera's function to do this. If you have a memory card in the camera, you might not be able to see the pics in the internal memory, so take it out first, then review the pics in the camera and delete as many as you can (not the ones you want to keep, obviously). When you put the memory card back in, the camera should save pics to that instead of internal memory, but if the internal memory is completely full, it can't work properly. It needs some elbow room.

Internal memory is full,I have erased all


Take out memory card from camera, format internal memory to delete all pictures at once or delete them one by one.
Once memory card is inserted in camera, internal memory is no longer available to store/ delete pictures so remove memory card from camera to get access to internal memory.
