Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks


You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras

I have an Olympus 790. When I tried to use it last week, it wouldn't turn on. I also have a new Olympus 770 that I have never used. Today I turned it on and it worked fine. Then I took the memory chip out of the 790 that wasn't working and put it in the 770. Now neither camera will turn on. Any suggestions?


Either the software in both cameras need be updated. EIther by online software update program or the manufacture will do it for $50 a camera.Otherwise, some SD cards to have conflicts with some camer'a software for some reason. Sometimes using ... Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

My 4 GB memory card seems to have gone bad. I've used it for months and always fine. When using it last night it just went out. If I have it in my camera my camera will not work. If I take it out the camera will come on. I tried putting it directly in the printer slot and it tells me Memory Card Error. Is there ANY WAY to retrieve my pics off of this card??? Thank you, Mamie


It is possible to recover data from flash memory in certain circumstances.  Seagate offers data recovery services for situations like this.  It is however rather expensive I think services start around $1000.   ... Digital Cameras

I have a Fujifim finepix f47(fd) The camera was working fine until last week, basically I can turn the camera on fine and use all the menus etc. My problem is after I take a photo the camera crashes/freezes and thats it you cant do anything else unless you take the battery out however im back at square one again.

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.


Hi,\015\012It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new batte ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

Screen Hi, My Nikon Coolpix s4 camera does not generate any image on the screen. I last used it 2 months ago. Then i kept it a a safe place and took it out again to find that the screen went completely blank when i start it. Although it displays the previously taken images stored on memory card, displays all menus, zoom works perfectly fine and the flash also works fine.


Get on to Nikon and let them know about it, it is a common problem with the S4. They are fixing the 3500 and others for free. \015\012\015\012 John. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

Canon ZR200 memory card say ''card error'' when inserted. Card is not locked. I have formatted it. Have used 3 different sizes of cards. Sometimes it will say ''card error'' then start working a couple of days later as if nothing was wrong. Last card used worked for 13 pics then started ''card error'' next time I turned it on. Currently it just says ''card error'' all the time.

Kodak Easy Share camera - I'm using ScanDisk as a device to plug my memory card into and transfer pictures. I somehow got it to work once, but Kodak Easy Share usually tells me "no device detected". My control panel tells me the device is there and working fine. I tricked it once by reinstalling and Easy Share software actually allowed me to download my pictures (last night). Today it is saying no device detected again, and nothing seems to work.

My Lumix DMC FZ30 use to work using a 4gb SDHC SanDisk card, but now says, "Memory card error please check the card". However, the card works fine in any other cameras. A small pocket Fujifilm camera for example. I was told to reformat the card in the camera, but I'm unable to use any part of the FZ30 camera while the card is inserted and on.

Memory cards have a limited life. If you've been using it a lot and erasing it or formatting it, it probably is just worn out. Take it to a camera shop and try a new card. If that works, go to a discount store and buy a new one. It will cost less ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

So I took the family to Luray Caverns in Virginia last week, and took lots of pictures of my wife and kids in the caverns. As my six year old leaned over the "fried eggs" formation, my Canon A570is beeped. The screen showed the battery was running low, and then the dreaded "memory card error" came up. Are all my pics lost, or is there a way to recover them. I'm using rechargeable batteries, and have not checked the CR1220 internal battery. I'm also using a 4 year old class 2 - 2Gb SD card.


Don't worry, your lost photos that are very precious can be recovered with ease. I would like to introduce you a very good data Recovery software, called tenorshare data recovery which can be used to recover images from SD card and from other storage ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll through everything in the memory, but when I press the shutter to take a photo, the camera switches itself off. If I press the power by itself the green light comes on for a millisecond, then switches off. It has not been wet, dropped or otherwise. I had it on the shelf one day working fine, the ne

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac. Everything else is fine with the camera but, since the removable card is not being read, I am not able to store more than 7 pics on the internal memory... :-(


Using the internal memory locks some cameras into that mode. To get your card to work again, do this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, re-insert ... Kodak EasyShare M530 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]


Someone else posted that Canon fixed it for free. \015\012\015\012Here's a link to the Canon service site that explains their take on the problem. Yes they will fix it if it is indeed a CCD issue.\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Blurry pics The last time I used this camera, most of the pictures came out very blurry. I had to try to hold the camera completely still to keep them reasonably clear. These were just pictures of people, no sports, etc. It was on the usual auto setting. Even the ones that weren't too blurry were very grainy. It has worked fine in the past and I have never dropped it or gotten it more than rained-on wet. What could be the problem?
