You can easily solve this problem by yourself.
E51 means CF ACCESS
ERROR
When image data cannot be read from
CF normally.
caused by CF CARD

So if change your CF card then eveything will be all right.

This is a known "Service Notice" issue announced by Canon.

You'll notice thousands of consumers reporting the exact same problem including myself.
It takes too long to power on the camera, then when it does, it won't take any pictures then after 10 sec or so, "'Memory Card Error" displays. Hitting menu button does not work nor Preview/Playback mode (green light flashes). Camera powers off in 2 min.

Here's THE Solution from Canon - the phone customer rep was super helpful and issued a free UPS return shipping label along with instructions for free repair:

Since this is a known issue, if it indeed is this issue, Canon will repair it regardless of warranty validity. It takes 2 - 2.5 weeks from shipping out your camera to get it back repaired. Hope this resolves your issue as well!

    The ISSUE is that the Clock Coin Battery expired inside the camera thereby not properly able to read data from the memory card.

I have a canon pc 1043 (Power Shot A 70) digi cam. i have a problem with this cam.It memory card is 128 mb. and when i switch on my cam it show memory card error.what can i do. I show it many local shop...


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.

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

Canon Camera - Memory Card error & Card locked error


Try reading the card independent of a camera i.e. on a computer or a photo kiosk to determine if the card is readable damaged
