I have just powered up my cam and the screen only gives me the option of power off or format card, if I choose format I get a card error. All other options are unavailable

This happens with all three of my memory cards

Does anybody have any ideas how to fix this

Thanx

Try removing the batteries overnight so that the camera's factory settings are restored. If that doesn't work you'll probably have to send it in for repair.

I actually had the batteries out while typing the original message.

But I managed to fix it by simply giving the memory card slot a good blow out, I guess it was just a bit of fluff messing up a contact point.

Cue - Big sigh of releif
