If the error is refering to the memory card, try gently rubbing contacts with an eraser or replace and make sure the write protection is off on the card.

My finepix s1800 is showing read error in screen


Welcome to Fixya.

Ther three reasons why do you received an "READ ERROR" message:

1. The file is corrupt ot was not created with the camera.
- the file can not be played back
2. The memory card contacts require cleaning
- Clean the contacts with soft and dry cloth. If the message is repeated, format the memory card. If the message persist, replace the memory card.
3. Camera malfunction
- Contact a FUJIFILM dealer

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.

When i insert the xd card i get a message saying card error or card full even though the card is empty. any ideas on how to fix this or is time to replace it.


1) Try and clean the contacts on the card, soft dry cloth. I don't think you can get at the contacts in the camera, but you could give the card port a blast of compressed air if you got a can.

2) As the card is empty, try a re-format in the camera.

3) It could be you need a new card, a backup is always handy but if you can borrow one, try that first.

My Sony DSC-S75 camera shows a format error when I insert my 128MB memory stick also blinking is C:13:01. Any idea's how to fix? Thanks!


Format error display shows memory card is unstable and need to be format through format option in Camera menu.
Format memory card, if that does not fix the issue, try another memory card in camera and check this memory card in another camera just to make sure either camera got problem or memory card is bad.

Picture error message on olympus 1200


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the Picture error message and the card can be used again. The picture error message indicates that this image is now corrupted and unable to be viewed through the camera.

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
