No Memory Card message on Canon S5 IS

Canon PowerShot S5 IS. I get a "no memory card" message on screen when the memory card is actually installed. I thought the card may need to be re-formatted but the format option is not available because the camera doesnt realize the memory card is installed. Any ideas?

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, and the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

On the SD card there is a little switch you can move. It has 2 positions, LOCKED, and UNLOCKED. To make the card available, put the switch in the UNLOCKED position.
Here is an example-

If that doesn't work, try putting the card into a memory card reader, like on your PC or a special USB attachment. If the memory card is recognized, then it might be a problem with your camera.

Screen says card locked


If you are just installing a new memory card or possibly the card lock has been bumped there is a small switch in the upper left corner (writing up) that needs to be pushed towards the top and closest to the gold contacts here is a diagram

Also for any new memory card or one that you have just downloaded the images from to the computer Hard Drive you should format the card to make it compatible to the camera. Format the card in the camera and you will be good to go.

I can only take like 2 to 5 pictures on my Canon PowerShot A530 then the memory card says it's full.


Actually, your camera is probably telling you the internal memory is full. To get the camera to write to the card, you need to get rid of everything on the internal memory. Here's how...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work properly.

Your camera has a board with the SD card slot board and electronics to record and retrieve images. This board can be replaced and should cost about $100 to repair.
