Card not initialized

When I turn on my camera I get a message that says card not initialized but my memory card is fine! When I go to turn my camera off the lens makes a really weird noice. I did not even drop it or anything... I tried taking out the batteries and taking out the memory card and putting it back in, nothing seems to be working. Can anyone help me please??

Camera will not take pictures. Message on screen says: System Error Zoom I have not had any problems with zoom. How do I fix or clear this message. Thanks, Marsha

Please follow the steps:
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine.

Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec... in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

After all of this if you not success then its a lens error.The lens stuck from the inside becasue the lens guide pin is damaged or out of guide line. In this case you have to replace or repair the camera lens.

The lens will not retract on my Sony Cybershot DSC-S90 camera.

Hi there i like to inform you that its a lens guide pin problem. It is damaged or out of lens guide line. Thats why its stuck. The solution is only replacing the lens. But before that if you want to take a risk then on the camera and give a twist on the lens. Be careful. not much twist, just little. After that turn off / on the camera. If its working then fine. Other wise only the solution is contact with the service center and replace the lens.i am sure your camera lens position like a below mentioned picture.. before all this try to follow those step for luck.

Lens will not extend, screen is black, ''no image'' message

Make sure you are using a 2GB SD card or smaller. Make sure the camera is set for Camera Mode not Playback. That is the switch that shows a camera or a square with an arrow in it. When the camera is in play back the lens will not come out until the camera is set for camera mode. The no image in playback will occur every time you use an SDHC type memory card. Formatting the memory will not make the camera take the SDHC type cards since it was never designed to use them.

Memory card and lens

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
