There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here. If these don't help, and you do end up having to format your card, see the recovery software, along with the corrupted card procedures in this blog article.
If the memory card works on your pc, chances are it is fine.
So you have two things to do : first backup on your computer any picture on your card.
Secondly put it back in the camera, go into the menu and find where to Format the card. Once the card is formated by the camera try to take a picture to see if the problem is solved. If not, look through your camera menu, certainly under "memory setting" or something similar, then you will have an option to choose on wich memeory the pictures are recorded: the internal one or the card. Make sure your 4gb card is selected. This shoul solve the issue.
Time for some "tough love"...suggest you buy one of the new Pentax point-and-shoots that are especially made for people who continually drop their cameras. This one can be dropped from 3 feet and still work. Leave the good DSLRs to the rest of us.
The camera uses either SD or MMC cards, it is likely you bent or broke one or more of the connector pins in the camera..Bent pins usually break if you try to straighten them.
Repair costs will probably cost as much as a replacement new camera. On eBay you can buy a C330 for $10-
First you check ur battery power still constant if not check ur memory card .Empty. ur memmory card through another card reader then on ur camera without putting MC.
in this way ur probleum will solved.
Get another battery - it is possible the replace is stale/old/dud.
Check the cleanliness of the contacts on battery and the camera, a light polish with tissue- sometimes if the camera has not been used for a with a slight patina of dirt/corrosion will build up to prevent contact.
