You may have damaged the memory card not the camera. Try the card in a card reader and also a different card in the camera.

Good luck

Memory card will not go in all the way and the door won't shut.

was it working before?
turn the memory card anyway and have a try - before check inside the memory card compartment with a flashlight if you can see the contacts at the bottom and insert the card corresponding to them.
Or try another card to exclude yours is not damaged or wrong type somehow....

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860

The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

Camera can turn on a moment than shut down

1) clean the contacts battery very well
2) using wrong battery type, use alkaline only
3) batteries inside with polarities wrong
4) batteries with insufficiente voltage, insert GOOD BATTERIES

I inserted kinston 4gb card in my digital camera , while in the unlocked position of switch.But camera shows "memory card error" "card locked"

  • There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  • There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  • The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  • The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.

    Memory card will not push in and stay engaged in memory card slot

    This happens most of the time with digital camera and mobile phones, if you try to insert the memory card in a wrong direction. Before inserting your memory card, look into the slot hole and see the position of contact terminals and insert your card in such way that the card comes with contact with the terminals inside the slot. If your card already got struck into the slot, try removing it by pulling out using a small nose plier. Also try with another memory card of similar type to detect any problem due to your memory card. I hope this will help you out.

    Mustek PVR-H140 shuts down when I insert some SD cards

    Yes that's correct newer SD Cards use faster memory chips that are not always compatable, not just with this unit but you can have the same problem with cameras and other MP3 players as well.

    The PVR-H140 is quite old now so stick to the older type cards, oh and they dont like being hot swapped, this can cause a shutdown or driver corruption, insert them before turning the unit on.
