Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?

Won't take pictures/ says "memory error"/ doesn't display pics

\015 Memory card has tiny little holes on top, bottom left one seems to have metal fillin the hole, is that supposed to be there?Can any one give me advice and or in-put???\015

Answers :

That metal you see is probably a broken prong from where the card was plugged into the camera. Try a different card if you have one, or you may need to buy a new one. You can get them at any electronics store or in the electronics department of any of the chain department stores. They're really inexpensive these days.
