help with k20d not displaying pics on lcd

i just sold a camera to a guy
camera was working perfectly this morning...

he calls me back and telling me he cant review any pics he took... they are only showing for a second on lcd after they are taken... after that they are nowhere...

im sure its something stupid.. and he probably played with some settings... anybody can help?

im also thinking it might be his memory card... (that was never formated ever as he told me...)
but he can preview the pics that were already on the card and were taken with another camera

His next step should be to format the card in the camera. But first check that the card doesn't have the write-protect enabled. It is easy to accidentally move the little switch on an SD card.

Yes, you can format the card in the camera.

Select Format from the Set-up menu.

All cameras have the ability to format a card and that is the best way to do it.
