Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.


Take the card to a Walmart and insert it into one of their picture kiosk machines. You can print the pictures or even make a CD of them. ... Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera

My camera is a new purple polaroid 1834, I got it for Christmas. I tried to take a picture the other day and it took one, and then shut down with the lens still out. It will not turn on, and everytime I press the power button a green light flashes and it beeps three times, but nothing else happens. I have tried replacing the batteries with brand new ones..still nothing. I've tried to batteries and everything.What is going on and what can I do to fix it? Is it fixable?


It is fixable but best thing to do is take it back to where you got it for a replacement. Or send it in to Polaroid the lens gears are stuck and the zoom motor sounds like it has gone out. If you have no sucess doing that then let me kno ... Digital Cameras

The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras

I can only take a few pictures on my camera before it either shuts itself off and/or won't turn on again.

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨. My camera worked for a couple of pictures at one point following this initial error message and then acted up again, showing err 02. It then quickly reverted back to old error CF message.


Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]
