Default memory stick error; Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P32

I'm getting a "memory stick error" when I turn the camera on. Seems like it is not seeing the card correctly, I tried another card that is good and it still gives me this error. Any ideas?

Thanks

If you have tried a known good card and it doesn't work then it sounds as if the problem is the camera itself. A couple of suggestions to try before sending to repair:

1. Open the I/O cover on the back and press the RESET button with tip of ballpoint pen, press it in and hold it for a second.
2. Did you try with new or freshly charged batteries?
2. Take batteries out, leave sit overnight, reinstall batteries, try again.

Good luck.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. Any places recommended to get it fixed? Local camera shop was to charge me over $200 to look at it...

Is the camera still under warranty? Also check with Sony for authorized service centres rather than the "local camera shop."
