Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

One of the pins in my sd card is bent over and it will not read the sd card, I am an electronics technician by trade, is replacing the sd card reader a very complicated repair?


Answers :

Please clarify - if the bent pin is on your SD Card, why would you want to replace the card reader?
\015\012
\015\012If you're an electronics tech, you must have a good selection of tools, many of which are small, for use on boards and the like. If so,try gently to bend the pin back to the right position.
\015\012
\015\012But do not force it.
\015\012
\015\012Pins are usually made of a softer metal than you might think, which will make bending it back easier than it might appear to be.
\015\012
\015\012Again, if the pin is on the card, not the reader, you may be able to fix this, if you work very slowly and gently.
\015\012
\015\012However, if the bent pin is in the reader after all, then you must use a set of tools which are both very small, and extra long, to enable you to get inside, to where the pins are. The same advice applies - be gentle and careful.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck.

If you are electronic technician you can repaire cf pins with your tool but make sure you do with gently other wise it would break

I have a pentax IST DS. Three months ago I had the camera repaired with the technician telling me there was something wrong with the memory card reader. Symptoms - able to take a picture but when I would go to review the picture I would either get a message that said the image could not be viewed or the image would appear with faint vertical lines on it.

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?

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the pics, got an error in the viewfinder (CHR). Looked at the manual, and it said problem was with the card. I removed the card, and placed it in a card reader. It worked fine and I was able to transfer the photos. Replaced the card, and still get the same error. I've already re-formatted the card,

My m1033 won't read the card and only lets me take 6 pictures and then says the internal memory is full. I get the pictures off the camera and card by connecting the camera to my computer, not with a card reader. But it won't let me get the pictures off the card anymore. Just happened yesterday. I removed the card and battery, and replaced them but that didn't help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

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...

It can be very difficult to see if the pins are bent, and harder to see if any have broken off. Do not probe with anything that can bend the pins. I suggest you create a small tool from a strip of paper and a toothpick. Pass the strip of paper ove ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.
