Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Answers :

You may have a bent flash card pin. Remove the card and look in the flash card slot for any bent pins. If you see any, remove the camera's batteries. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).

\015\012It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.
