Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera
I have had this camera for nearly two years now. Recently when i started turning on my camera, a message "Memory Stick Error" pops up and will not allow for any pics to be taken or viewed. I know the memory is not full because it stores way more than 200 pics. What can I do to fix this problem? Is it the camera or the card? because I do not want to spend money on a new card if it will cause me the same problems. I tried experimenting by putting in a new card with less space, and for awhile it seemed to work, then the same message would appearm making it seem as though its the camera. Its frustrating because its hto or miss...sometimes it works just fine, other times the error appears. It seems as though when a special moment is occuring, thats when the error appears. Please help, I dont feel like having to get a new camera after only owning mine for less than two years seems fair.
Memory connector in camera may have loose or corroded pins ( memory card will not seat ) ; consider replacing connector - if cleaning and resetting connector pins does not help ;

Tips for a great answer:
In DSCT2 Camera, the C:13:01 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. In C:13:01, the issue is with the Internal Memory or with the Memory Stick.
The Symptoms are:
1. Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.
2. Unformatted "Memory Stick Duo" which can be resolved by formatting the MS in the Camera.
3. "Memory Stick Duo" is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible MS.
4. There may be an issue with the Hardware part also, which can be resolved by the technicians.
Try turning the power off and on again, or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick Duo" several times may also help in resolving the issue.
