    in some cameras the lcd turns off after the camera is ready to take pictures, its a setting in the camera, can you still use the camera after the screen turns black?

  • Ekse Apr 20, 2008

    If camera doesnt work after the screen turns off, then the camera is haveing a hard time formating the card, I would recommend formating it in a pc. or takeing the camera to be checked for faults

Format memory images


Paul,
You are using misleading words. You can format a memory card. And images can have a certain format, So I wonder what you mean.
Your camera can use the following format to save images:
5M (2592x1944pixels 4:3), 3M (2048x1536pixels 4:3),
2M (1920x1080pixels 16:9 )
VGA (640x480pixels 4:3)
To switch to another image format, press the Menu / OK button
Press the up down button till you see resolution then again press Menu / OK
with the up / down goto the format you want and press OK to confirm the selection.
The manual does not say anything about formatting the memory card. If you want to format a new memory card, put it in an external memory card reader and conner it to the computer. Format with FAT32. But my guess is, when you insert a memory card in the camera, it will show CD card inserted. that is the moment the camera will format the camera.
Success

When i turn on my s5700 there is a message (images recorded to internal memory) then on the screen is a white box with black letters (in) i have done what the manual said and formated but it has not made...


Okay "normally" when the memory card is installed the camera reverts back to the memory card from the internal memory. Two things might be happening here one the internal memory needs to be downloaded to the memory card then saved to the computer and the internal memory card formatted. then the memory card formatted to clear those pictures. And or there is a setting switch in menu or set up that you need to manually switch from internal memory to memory card.

I know when I read this over it made scents so you might need to read it a few times to get the idea of what I'm telling you needs to be done

Make sure you don't have any pics on the internal memory. To be sure, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert the card and go into the menu and do the format thing again to erase the card and optimize it. Use the menu and not the format option the camera has been giving you.

Memory card needs formatted is displayed on the screen. Deleted the pictures and it still comes up. Tried to take more pictures and the memory card would not hold. Is there something wrong with the camera...


I assume you have an SD card. If it's bigger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card and will not work in the ZD710.

No, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong. The card just needs to be formatted. In any mode press the Menu button. Press right-arrow to select the Setup tab (camera and wrench) then press OK. Press up/down-arrow to select "Format" then press OK.

Make sure you format the memory card. It's okay to format the internal memory, of course, but your current problem appears to be that the card needs to be formatted.

Why My kodak dc280 can not read the memory card?


Try formatting your camera memory card If you own camera memory cards that have been used in other digital cameras, the card may not be properly formatted for use in your camera, or that data on the card may become corrupted. When these issues arise, your camera indicates that the camera memory card needs to be formatted.
When you format a camera memory card, all of the information on the card is erased. This includes any borders supplied on the card.

Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.

• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
cover is not properly latched.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• EH-62B AC adapter (available separately) is not properly
connected.
• Camera is in sleep mode. Press shutter-release button
halfway.
• Monitor is off.
• USB cable is connected.
• AV/Video cable is connected


No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed:


• Camera is in playback mode.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• Red (!) lamp flickers: flash is charging.
• Green (AF) lamp flickers: camera unable to focus.
• Message "CARD IS NOT FORMATTED" appears in
monitor: memory card is not formatted for use in your
camera.
• Message "OUT OF MEMORY" appears in monitor:

Format Error in Sony Cybershot


i think this problem arises when you fail to regularly format the card ie. take lots of pictures and delete some and repeat the process over and over instead of downloading every session and formatting the card causing coruption. Also if you've bought pro duo memory stick off ebay poss. its a very good forgery (again i've been caught out by this).
