Flashcard will not engage with camers - Cameras

1 Answer


It's tough to tell what you mean by your description.
From your text, I can see three different possibilities:
1. The card cannot physically seat into the camera.
>> A. Check the card first.
If the card has any debris in or around the contacts/the pin slots, it can damage your camera. Replace it.

>> B. If you do not see any debris, and you have another camera or card reader available, see if that other device can read the card.

If it seats there, the issue is in your camera, and there may be something lodged in the card slot, or a broken mechanism. Clean out any debris, and service if you cannot easily and gently resolve the problem. Remember that there are sensitive electronics there, so avoid contact with the pins, etc.

2. If the card can physically connect, but the camera cannot read the files, it may simply be that there is data from another device on the card which is not readable by this camera. These will not harm the camera, and will not interfere with taking more pictures. Be carreful, though. If you want those pictures/files, be sure to use a card reader to transfer them before you format the card. If the camera cannot read the files, it may also not transfer them to your system when you try to download. They would be bypassed, and lost at format.

Good luck.

You should know what kind of flashcard you need depends on the price and function, also on the
console you have! If you have a DS or DSi console, playing 3ds games is not a reality for you,
you should choose one from kinds of flashcards that support ds and dsi games! You have many
choice there, r4i gold, r4i dual-core, r4i sdhc and so on. They may have a little difference on
price, but that's doesn't matter! Function is another factor you must care, many people want
to use flashcard to play retro gba and snes games on ds, dsi and 3ds. At that time, you should
put functions that flashcards have in comparison though they have the most similar functions!
Supercard dstwo is the best flashcard to play emulator games ever as I know!

No display in control panel

Had this problem after a power hiccup. The firmware on my HP 5550 / 5550n has been a problem in the past, needing updating or currupting, but this time I was getting the power on, a backllit control panel but no menus or text, and steady on READY, DATA and ATTENTION lights. At any rate I saw a solution on the Internet and owe that poster a beer if I can ever find him.

All things led to a corrupt Firmware. Problem and most beleieve you have to send for a new Firmware FlashCard and that takes time and big $$$. I found that if you can find another working 5550 / 5550n you can pop it's firmware FlashCard, make an image of it, and restore your own firmware to a working state.

The 5550 /5550n printers firmware resides on a 32MB Compact FlashCard on the printers Formatter Board. (The formatter board is held into the printer by 8 screws, and also has the JetDirect card on it.). This Firmware FlashCard when removed, will fit in a standard Compact FlashCard reader, and can then be attached to any Windows Machine for manipulation.

NOTE that this Compact FlashCard containing the printers firmware involves a proprietary HP created partition that a Windows PC cannot even read. Thus when connected to a Windows PC you'll see nothing, and may well be challenged to format the card!!! --- Obviously... DON'T DO IT !!

There is a FREE program called SelfImage available. Just Google: download SelfImage. The pesent version of SelfImage as of this writing is v1.2.1. It can and will see the contents of the FlashCard, and thus can make an image file of the FlashCard for use down the road. Should the firmware on the CompactFlash Card ever get corrupted, you can restore it from any image file by simply using the SelfImage program in reverse.

I made two image files of a good firmware flashcard from a working 5550 / 5550n because when you choose to make the backup image in this SelfImage program, you can do either the entire physical drive, or just a selected partition of a physical drive. In the case of this printer's firmware FlashCard, the drive and partition appear to be one in the same, as will be evidenced by the exact same file size of the resulting images. I made copies both ways (drive and partition) just be sure all possibilities were covered.

I now make copies of that Firmware everytime it's upgraded.
