Check on the web site to see if there is a firmware update for your camera. You didnt state if the original card that came with the camera still works or if these are new cards. Some cameras can't use the newer cards so SD and SDHC are not the same and in some cameras are not compatable.

i suggest you first try another card to check if the card or the camera is faulty. if it is the canera then it could be the sd card slot that is faulty. this will have to be checked by a qualified panasonic tech.

The internal BIOS battery has run down and is causing this error. Don't attempt to fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for you for free, with free shipping, regardless of your camera's warranty status. See and print out the following advisory:

SOURCE: memory card failure in camera

Your memory card needs a permanent home. Trading it between cameras is corrupting it. If there are pics on it, use a card reader to download them. Then choose a camera and format the card in that camera.

Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.

You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.

Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.

Hi - I am getting an error message when i switch on my Sony Cybershot dsc t9 saying access and then it flashes format error C13.01 - can you advise how to resolve?


It might be due to a bad contact of the placed memorycard.

1. Pull the memorycard out and in the camera several times and retry.
2. If not OK, format the card in the camera. If that does not work, format it in the computer.
3. Try another memorycard and recheck.

99 error, CF memory card was removed to download pix. put CF card back in camera, but now get error message. removed battery and card several times, including replacing with another card. still get same...


Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....
Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Error message: "Lens error, restart camera" unable to get it to work Have powered on & off several times. Also removed batteries and powered on several times all to no avail.


There are 2 fixes I know for this you can try.


1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2. If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. You don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the sd card and turn it on one last time.

Memory error


Have you formatted the card in the camera before trying to use it? (download any pictures still on the card using a card reader if necessary).

Memory card error with new memory card


Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

Let's work on the camera first.
1) Turn the camera off and remove the battery and the card.
2) Put the battery back in without the card and turn it on.
3) Turn the camera off and insert the CF card.
4) Turn the camera back on again.
See if that takes the message away.

If it doesn't leave me a comment and we go to step 2.
If it does, thanks for coming to FixYa.

Format error


Before buying a new memory card, try to use your card in another camera. When you say you tried to format it through a card readr, do you mean that the card reader was connected to your PC?

Camera not turning on


The Same thing just happened to mine said my card wasn't formatted, tried several card with no luck, the tell me too much money to have looked at $150 min they say buy a new camera. Always get extended warranty for 2-3 years the 49.95 is worth it in the long run.
