Question about Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS / IXUS 210 Digital Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
problem is so common, especially with Canon Powershot cameras like your IXUS 210, that there's a whole blog about it here:
It seems that the camera gives this error when it has problems reading/writing the card. The fixes they suggest there are to do with cleaning the contacts. It's pretty easy to clean the contacts on the memory card, but much harder to clean the camera. I don't suggest following the instruction to spray cleaner into the slot... that sounds like a recipe for getting it all over the inside of the camera!
I would start by cleaning the memory card's contacts. You can either use a solvent such as Methyl Hydrate and a Kleenex, or you can actually rub the contacts clean with an eraser (or if you're British you can use a solvent such as Methylated Spirit and a tissue, or rub the contacts clean with a rubber). It's probably worth looking inside the camera too, to see if any of the contacts are obviously bent in the card slot. I've seen that in a Nintendo DS which is similar. If a contact is bent, nothing's going to work unless you can get it back in place.
