As its not registering there are a couple of things to try.

1) Take out the card and clean the contacts with a soft dry cloth.

2) You can try blowing in the card slot or give a blast of air from a can.

If that doesn't work, try borrowing a card. If it doesn't register that you've a camera problem, if it does register, your card has a fault.

You may be able to re-format it, if you do this on a pc you'll have to do it again in the camera. Because they have different file formats.

I have TECHNIKA SH-A366 when I switch this on this message comes on the screen CARD ERROR and it wont allow me to take any pictures please someone help me solve this problem.


It sounds like the memory card (what stores the photos) may be faulty, not inserted correctly or may need cleaning. There should be a memory card slot on the side or underneath the camera. Once you have found the slot push the memory card and it should click out of place. Give the memory card a quick blow and reinsert it, if the error still appears it may be the fact that the memory cards capacity is too large for the camera to handle or is incompatible. If you have another memory card, try that. Comment if you still have an issue. Good luck :)

It keeps saying memory card is full. Bought a new memory card and put in and it still says the card is full.


Are you sure that isn't "internal" memory card is full message?

Sometimes, when "internal memory card is full" there is no more space in the camera's internal memory. Your camera has 16 MB of internal memory. The number of pictures you can store depends on the picture size setting you have selected on your camera. Keep in mind that the camera always uses internal memory, even if a card is installed (auto default).

If really, the problem is in the "SD memory card", I suggest make some backup all files and reformat the SD. Try formatting it in the camera, there should be a process in your owners manual for doing this; donw formatted SD in your computer, isn't good.

Hope helps.

Memory card error it says card is locked I slid the switch back an forth but still says memory card


I'll include a diagram of the little lock switch so you know the correct position to be able to load pictures to it. Another reason for getting the card locked error is if the memory card hasn't been formatted in the camera it's being used in. Formatting is necessary after downloading pictures to the computer as well.

I purchased a Kingston 2G SD card for my Canon A530. It says "memory card error". In fact, the function to format the card does not even light up but is dimmed and skips to the next function. My...


The card is obviously too large, in memory capacity terms, for the camera. In fact, it might not be an SD card, but an SDHC card. "SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. I'm not sure about the 2GB ones, maybe there are some of each type. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

A 1GB card is plenty of space. If you really need more room, carry a spare card, like people used to do with films.

Canon IXUS 95 IS gives me a report: card locked, while the card is not locked; gives me a report; memory card error please tell me what is wrong?


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 (note, this is not the problem with your newer model camera). Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact 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.

I had a canon digital camera my memory card of that camera got locked can u help me to unlock it.


Remove the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look along the left edge of the card. Find a small tab and slide it forward (to the unlock position) and carefully slip the card back into the camera and try again. If it reports locked again, carefully remove the card to see if the tab has moved back to the locked position.

If the tab is moving to the locked position during the insertion process, you could place a small amount of tape along the card edge - over the tab - and carefully insert the card again. You might have to remove some tape to allow the card to fit into to slot. If you never locak the card - you could put a very small drop of super glue on the tab to hold it in place. Wait for the glue to set completely before inserting into the camera.

Panasonic Lumix will not read memory card.


Hi,

try formatting your cd card in your Fz. If it keeps telling you memory error, try using it in windows, put data on it, to see wether it can hold them and read them too.
Happeded to me once too, format did the job. Just format it in the camera, not your pc.

MEMORY CARD


I had the same problem today with a 2 GB card. I think it may be the size of the card. When I put in an old 32 MB card it worked fine.
