My Olympus e500 has a broken pin in the memory card reader slot- now it can't view any cards. Is the only option to send the camera back to the manufacturer for repair or is there someplace in the south Denver area that will fix it locally?

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?

I have an Olympus FE-340 digital camera. About a week ago I got a message that my memory card was full after I had deleted all of the photos in the memory. As soon as the camera was turned on it said, "Memory full." I thought it was a problem with the card so I planned to replace it, meanwhile I was using internal memory. It now says "Memory full" and there is nothing stored on the camera. Is there any way to fix this?

1 pin bent resulting in "Card Error" message. Attempt to straighten pin broke it off! Camera now appears to work well. What other problems might this missing pin create? Should I keep the camera or replace it?


Some of the CF card pins don't do anything. It could be one of those that broke. If, when it was bent, it shorted one of the other pins, that may have caused the "Card Error". Removing the pin may have no negative effect. ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

My olympus stylus tough 6000 keeps reverting to internal memory even when it has a memory card inside it. This is usually not a huge problem because i can pop the battery slot open and then take out the card and put it back in and it will usually fix the problem but i will be scuba diving in the bahamas in mid june and i have an underwater housing for the camera so as you might see popping the battery open at 40 feet below the surface could have some damaging effects to the camera.

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?
