Can not format on my Canon A540

Hi there and welcome

Can you tell me please what exactly happens when you try to do a format?

Thank you

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The format option on camera is blank
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.

ok, just to be sure, you do have a Memory card in it correct?

And if you check it, on the side of it is a lever. Is it set to the lock position? If so, slide it, put it back in the camera and try again.

Let me know the results please.
