Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

I PLACE MEMEORY CARD INTO CAMERA AND IT COMES UP - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

As long as you didn't format the card your images should still be in there. Get a card reader (usually like $10) and connect this to your computer. With this you can just drag and drop the images to your desktop. Once you do that format the card on the camera you want to use it with and don't use it on any other devices. Hope this helps!

Error code 20000


...Actually it probably says error code 020000...flash test.
Other error codes: 6 digits in codes:
left to right digits;
1- Battery Test 0= Pass; 1= Fail ( batteries have to be good and in place even if using power supply (100000)
2=Flash Test/ Flash Charging 0=Pass; 1= Fail (020000)
3= IR Sensor Test 0= Pass; 3= Fail (003000)
4= Camera Mod Test 0= Pass; 4= Fail (000400)
5= Memory Test 0= Memory o.k. or no sd card; (000000) 5= Memory Full (000050) 6= SD card locked (000060) 7= SD card damaged (000070) 8= Comms Error (000080)
6= Clock Test 0= Pass; 9= Fail (000009)
ALL SYSTEMS OK= 000000, GOOD

WHEN PERFORMING THESE TESTS, FOR THE FLASH TO TEST OK YOU HAVE TO COVER LIGHT SENSORS small glass items each side of lens.If you still have error, install good batteries, power on, drop batteries out, turn unit off, reinstall batteries and turn on again....if all this, you still have error, you probably have bad flash unit.

I didn't get a memeory card with my new camera.


First, new cameras don't come with memory cards anymore. Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. Then, format the card in the camera.

If you do not have a memeory card then you will not be able to record a long video as this camera only comes with 10MB. You will need to buy a memeory card.

Locked Memory Card


I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.

Canon ixus 75 memeory card


On the SD card itself there is a little tab that slides back and forth. It should be closest to the the end you put into the camera first. If it broke off, then the camera is stuck in lock mode. If this is the case, it's not worth trying to glue something in its place...just invest in a new one.

Memeory card error


many users have the same doubt. as per canons manual:
if any error is displayed when using your memory card do a low level formating of memory card.
but what to do for pictures in it? get a memory card reader from market. its very cheap. its also advisable to use memory card reader to transfer your photos rather than using direct connectiin to computer. bcz any lekage current from computer may damage the camera in some way.
after doing a low level formating then transfer photos inside memory card from system, put it in ur camera, then enjoy.
hope you are clear with your problem. please give a feedback.
