C:13:01 Error Code: The Artsybelle Fix and Trix

I know most people who have owned a Sony Cybershot camera one way or another and have probably encountered the dreaded error C:13:01 message. I hope you never got into this problem but if you are reading this, Oh no!

Yes, I hear yah! I've been there before and have scratched my head in total disappointment. Hopefully, my little Fix 'N Trix will put a smile in your face.

I too have had this problem before and thought it was a memory stick problem. I replaced my memory stick and lo and behold, there it was again. Three memory stick replacement and still it was there. While others are lucky to really have an issue with just one memory stick, others like me however are unfortunate. It seems as though the problem rests internally in the camera itself--more specifically the connector/plugs that connects the memory stick to its reader.

I have found a way around this and I hope this will also do the trick in eradicating your error code and hopefully save you some money. First thing though, make sure you have tried replacing your memory stick with a new one. And if you still encounter the error code then you know its not the memory stick, its the camera!

The Artsybelle C:13:01 Fix:

1. Turn off the camera.

2. Slide and push the memory stick all the way past its clicking point until there is no more room to push.

3. Hold it for a minute or so.

4. Turn on your camera while you are still holding the memory stick all the way in.

5. Slowly release the memory stick, you should feel/hear a click that the memory stick is in place.

6. If that does not work, redo the whole thing until your patience run out.

An Optional Fix:

If doing it over and over again didnt help, hold the camera in one hand and gently tap it on the other hand repeatedly (like a hammering fashion). Getting mad should also expidite your case. Tap it in the front. Sometimes, paper thin connectors often come lose from time to time and this should help secure it without opening the camera. The older Cybershot S series are plague by this loose connector problems.
After tapping, redo the memory stick trick.

The One More Last Trick:
When all other trix and fix are exhausted and no solution is in sight--apply the e-bay trick.

Unreal, it worked for me too! I had completely given up on my camera and was going to buy a new one. I had to try it about 10 times but it eventually worked.
