My GY-HM700 will not reformat any SDHC card whether the card is New or Used with clips on it. This is for both the A Card and B Card slots. Each time I press Set in the Reformat Media Mode I receive the "Reformat Error!" message. I verified that the cards are OK by trying them in another 700. Also, the eject function is balky. When I depress the SDHC card it goes in and does not partially pop back out. I have to carefully grab it and pull it out to remove it.

Please try the following 2 steps:

  1. Make sure that the card is not locked (record-lock switch in correct position)
  2. "Reset" the camera using the menu function

If that doesn't correct the problem, then the camera should be serviced.  From your description it sounds as if some foreign material may be in the card slot affecting insertion and ejection.
