Question from Kelsey W.: I bought my wife a brand new Pentax K-50 camera back in 2014 and now she’s having a problem with it.
After she first got the camera she used it almost every day for a couple of months, then she had a stroke and was unable to use it for quite some time.
Her recovery from the stroke was long and difficult, but she is now finally able to resume some of her most loved activities, including taking pictures.
The problem is the camera doesn’t work now. When she turns it on it says there’s no memory card. But there is one and it’s inside the camera.
I read the manual and it said to format the SD card, but every time I try to format it the “no memory card” error pops up.
It’s hard to believe this is happening because she was only able to use the camera for a couple of months before she had the stroke.
Do you think the problem is a bad camera or a bad memory card?
