Customer Question
I have a SanyoVPC-51285...

I have a SanyoVPC-51285 that has worked well, until last night. When I turn it on I get the message 'Card Error' with a ! in a triangle. I thought that perhaps the card was faulty or full, but I still get the same message with a new card?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

LG M-DIsc?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?

There is nothing wrong with my computer, the fault is in my Sanyo VPC-51285 camera

Technician's Assistant: How old is your VPC-51285?

Maybe 8 years

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your VPC-51285?

I put a new card in and still got the 'Card Error' message on the camera screen/viewer

If the same problem is happening with different cards then the card reader has a fault, possibly a bent or broken pin, and the camera will require a repair.
