Compact flash connector pins bend/pushed inside

\015 I have a Canon Digital camera which uses compact flash as picture memory. For some reason a couple pins inside the camera are bend and 2 pins are punched inside the camera. These pins should connect to the flash memory. Now I can't take any pictures, because the camera does not see the memory. Any advise?\015
