Memory Card Error and colors turn pink with flash on

I was getting a memory card error. Eventually after taking the card and battery in and out several times and resetting it went away. But the color in the pictures are off - it turns red or pink when using the automatic flash. I've tried it with the flash off and the colors seem OK. Can anyone tell me how to deal with this problem?

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.

THE CAMERA BRINGING A NOTICE ON A SCREEN ERROR CF.WHAT IS POSSIBLE THE PROBLEM.


Digital Camera: How to Fix Compact Flash Memory Cards ErrorIt is not very typical for compact flash memory cards to give you an error. If you do receive an error, it most likely means that a pin within your CF card slot is bent, or your CF card has become corrupted. Unfortunately, if your CF card has become corrupted, you will need to reformat the memory card, which means that you may lose any pictures that were located on the card.
Fixing Your Flash Memory Card

You will want to remove your CF card and the batteries. Take a look inside the CF card slot to see if there is a bent pin. If you find a bent pin, you can correct this problem using a very small and skinny flat screwdriver. Moving very slowly, use the screwdriver to bend the pin back into place. You do not want to use enough force to make the pin back in one shot.
The pin does not have to be perfectly straight, but get it as close to straight as possible. Insert your CF card back into the slow very slowly. You should see the in align itself with the card. You can turn your digital camera on to verify that the compact flash memory card is now working.

I have replaced the battery and memory card, the camera keeps saying I need to format the card, but then it says it is formatting, then gives another message saying the card needs to be formatted....


If the memory card replacement is an SDHC model card the Kodak z740 will not work with it. The memory card has to be a standard SD card of 2 gig size or less to properly function. Take card out and turn on camera. See if you get same error. You should get missing card error but otherwise be able to operate camera controls such as zoom, flash, etc. If that is fine find old card you used and place back in camera... or purchase a standard SD card from Walmart for 10 dollars

Error code 20000


...Actually it probably says error code 020000...flash test.
Other error codes: 6 digits in codes:
left to right digits;
1- Battery Test 0= Pass; 1= Fail ( batteries have to be good and in place even if using power supply (100000)
2=Flash Test/ Flash Charging 0=Pass; 1= Fail (020000)
3= IR Sensor Test 0= Pass; 3= Fail (003000)
4= Camera Mod Test 0= Pass; 4= Fail (000400)
5= Memory Test 0= Memory o.k. or no sd card; (000000) 5= Memory Full (000050) 6= SD card locked (000060) 7= SD card damaged (000070) 8= Comms Error (000080)
6= Clock Test 0= Pass; 9= Fail (000009)
ALL SYSTEMS OK= 000000, GOOD

WHEN PERFORMING THESE TESTS, FOR THE FLASH TO TEST OK YOU HAVE TO COVER LIGHT SENSORS small glass items each side of lens.If you still have error, install good batteries, power on, drop batteries out, turn unit off, reinstall batteries and turn on again....if all this, you still have error, you probably have bad flash unit.

SD1200 IS Memory Card Error


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're inexpensive.

Finally, I'd suspect the card before the camera. Think about purchasing a better quality card, they're relatively inexpensive these days. Also, first thing you should do with the new card is format it in your camera. You'll only need to do this once. If a card is not formatted when first purchased, it will work fine at first, but will eventually corrupt.

Memory card error - After taking about 300 pictures on a 2 Gig Kodak SD memory card. I get a message on my Canon camera that says '' memory card error'' I tried to put the chip in a differant camera but it...

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're inexpensive.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but the file structure will eventually corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again. Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

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.

Memory stick error


Try using another memory stick, or insert a confirmed good memory stick, if OK, the memory stick is defective, if the same error, try pressing reset at the back of camera, a small hole beside the the DC jack. if OK, then fine, if still the same, camera needs repair. thanks
