My Canon 5D card slot has a bent pin as someone forced a cf card in the wrong wayhow can I fix it ?


Answers :

If you have a light touch and long slender object like a paperclip or micro-tool you can attempt to straighten it if the bend is not too severe. If it is, you may just break it off. If you don't feel comfortable doing this by all means take it to a service tech. Easy does it.
If you try to fix it, you will only bend the adjacent pins. Let a service tech do 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?
