Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S50 Digital Camera ?

My nikon coolpix s50 camera is not reading any of my memory cards that it did a week ago. It is just using the internal memory even though a memory card is inserted(and not locked).I cannot even format the cards. I also cannot access any pictures that are on the cards.

Answers :

\015\012In Auto mode this camera dispays an icon showing 'IN' to denote internal memory being used. This icon should extinguish when the memory card is inserted. If the icon remains on screen with the card inserted then the problem is that camera is not able to recognise the card and is only reading from internal memory.
\015\012This can occur if the contacts to the memory card are not clean or have been damaged through repeated use. This can only be resolved by a service repair.
\015\012However you should also try the following.
\015\0121) Use the 'Reset All' function to restore the camera to default values and see if this resolves the issue.
\015\0122) Remove the battery from the camera altogether - replace it after one minute and see if card is recognised.
\015\0123) In the settings menu try the copy function to see if the camera will allow you to copy internal images directly to the memory card.
\015\012If these steps fail the camera will require service repair I am afraid.

"Card Locked" The "card locked" message keeps coming up even though my memory card is not locked. I bought a new memory card, and put that in, but it still says "card lock."

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...
