This is not a consumer repairable problem. Take it to a professional. If it's just a bent pin (not broken), the repair shouldn't be too expensive.

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?

Do I use the orange or the black adapter card to insert a memory card into my olympus stylus 840 camera? I bought the camera last night. The lady also said I'd need a PNY 2GB microsd memory card.

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...

I haven't used my Olympus FE-20 camera for about half a year, and I just brought it out to take pictures of the snow. Everything was great, but then I had to search for the cord to upload it.

The sd card that came with it doesn't fit in any of the sd slots on the computers, so I'm stuck. I just downloaded the cd that came with i
