My cannon a 530 says that it has a memmory card error, and it shows memmory card locked momentarally at bottom of screen, i tried to unlock with the slide on the card itself, but that did not help. i put a new memmory card in and it shows the same. i also noticed a watch type battery next to the aa batteries, could that battery be the problem ? i have never changed that battery and this camera is several years old.


No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC c ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away.

I have a Olympus FE 190 Camera. After a couple of pictures the battery reads red and I can take the battery out and put it back in again and it reads green. I thought maybe I have a problem with the battery so I bought a generic battery for this camera charged it up and the camera doesn't turn on. So I bought an olympus battery, charged it up and put it in and the camera still doesn't work. the only battery that kind of works is the original battery the camera came with.
