Question about Cameras
When the memory card's in the unit, pictures should automatically go to the memory card, so that makes me suspect that the card isn't getting detected. I'm thinking that there may be a slightly corroded contact in the internal contacts in the camera. You can take some electrical contact cleaner and try to spray them, or use a qtip, gently, soaked in isopropyl alcohol. It could also be a cracked trace going from the memory socket to the main board, and that would take disassembling the camera to identify and try to resolder it. Try the cleaning, since that's usually what causes problems like this.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this gets it working.
