Question about Olympus D-460 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display says "CARD FULL"

My camera has worked fine for a few years. Recently I tried to use it, and the display showed the message "card full". I tried another card, and got the same result, so I deleted several images (from both cards) and the result was still the same "card full" message. These are 8MB and 64MB SmartMedia cards, which work just fine in the reader on my computer. Any advice would be appreciated. Tom

    Well, the solution was something of a surprise to me, and I don't pretend to understand it. I was on the phone talking with a friend, the subject came up, and the camera came out of the drawer. I was asked if the batteries were dead, and I commented that I was using fully charged NiMM cells at the time, but started to empty various AA cells from assorted flashlights, etc. while we were talking, and trying them out in the camera. Four NiMH cells still wouldn't work, but 2 standard AA alkalines mixed with 2 NiMH's worked just fine. I know you're not supposed to mix them, I was experimenting. I'd used partially charged NiMH's before with success. So, it seems that a set of these rechargeables, fully juiced up, will not allow the camera function properly. Anybody know why?

My Sony Cybershot DSCHX5V Digital Camera shows a message on the display that says system error when swithed on. I have an sd hc 16gb memory card in the camera. Just before this problem happened it said...

At first, you have to find out the manual of your camera to see that if your camera can support a 16GB memory card. Not all the cameras can use a large memory card, as there is some limited maybe have been written in the camera manual.

A 2gb memory card says memory full tried it in

No, that camera works with the 2gb cards just fine. You will want to try to format the card in your computer first, then try it in your camera (format it in the camera before using). If it doesn't format in the computer, it is a bad card.

Compact flash disk

Yes they can and do go bad on occasion. But before throwing it out, attempt to format it in your camera. Find the menu selection that allows you to do a "full" or "low level" format, NOT a "quick" format. If the card still misbehaves, then it's time to retire that card.

Card Error?

i think you have broken or bended any of the pin inside the card slot, and that is creating problem. Try looking in the card slot you may find any of the connector pin broken or bended. Try straighten the pin cautiously and may your machine start working .
