My SLT a35 is flashing 'no card' on the viewfinder

My SLT a35 is flashing 'no card' on the viewfinder when the memory card is definitely installed.  The card shows up on my computer when inserted, just not on my camera.  Thanks in advance

Have you tried another card in the camera? Also you might try making sure the contacts on the card are clean, if needed maybe use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts. it could also be a damaged connector inside the camera, I've seen this with a friends camera once where they loaned it to someone and that person tried to insert the card in backwards and forced it in. Shoot Sony an email at sonysupportusa@am.sony.com with your model number, serial number, and what it is doing if a different card don't work. #SuperUserBySony

As an update, a new card fixed my problem.  It should be noted for anyone else having this issue that my card that I replaced works everywhere else....laptops pc's etc, just not in this camera.

Hi
You could try to format the memory card with “SD Formatter” (SD Association).

I resolved many SD Card issues with this software.

Reformatting didn't work on the original card either, but thanks for the info.  My new card is still working, so all is good!

I don't think I would trust the old card at all if it is not working in one place. You might have a warranty on it from it's manufacturer. I know a lot of my cards are lifetime warranty! #superuserbysony

It's the Sony card that came with the camera, less than 2 years old.

Shoot Sony Support USA an email, SonySupportUSA@am.sony.com I'm not sure what warranty they have on their cards but they should be able to do something. @SuperUserBySony
