Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

One of the prongs where the cf card is installed is bent. Can that be replaced? Could that be why my camera is freezing?

Answers :

If you are talking about the inside contacts from the card reader (socket) of teh camera ...and if it is bent in aside...this may be the cause...Probably the wrong kinda card was forced inside or the card in the wrong way ...not if the pins make contact between them this causes memory reading errors and automatically blast the camera's system ....
of course this can be replaced...even repaired...if you use a small and thin pincers..and with care ..you can actually get it into place again...but with very much patience ..cause it breaks easy ..and if it does ..the card can not be used but you change the reading platform inside..or open and replace the pin...but it will never be like it was...
meanwhile ..if the camera has an internal memory ...try to make them straight again like I said with a thin long pincers...and even if ti will not read the card until you will replace the reading platform ...you will be able to use it ..in the limit of the internal memory ...(usually they have about 30 M ..and if you set to a 1M limit to a photo...you will be able to use it somehow..even if you will be forced to download all the time ) ...But it may just work ..if you straight it up ...and with care insert the card again ....

I have a Lumix cameera, Model # DMC-FZ8. I recently installed a new memory card because the one that came with the camera began to malfunction. The new memory card is now having the same problem.

I recently bought a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card for my DXG-572V. I put it in the camera, and I turned the power on. A screen comes up saying "Format Card?".

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving

Card Locked! It is definitely NOT the lock tab. This is my sisters camera. She has used this card for a while. She took it out to try out a card I gave her and when she put the original back in the camera, it says "Card Locked!" whenever anything that would alter its contents is attempted. I have tested this card in my own camera and it works and I tried my card in her camera and that works. Why is this one card suddenly showing up to this one camera as locked?
