Hi, the flash card card-eject lever spring is broken and wont eject the card. u have to manually push the card in place and pull the card out. the lever stays up until u shut the card slot door.once the card is in place the camera can read the card if images already exist. but...it will not record an image and shows up as blank on the screen after the shutter takes the image? is this the cause of the broken eject lever. thanks.


I have the same problemI think that the reason that the not record the image is that the card slot door is pushing down on the card eject lever and ejecting the card when the door is closedThe only answer I can think of is to shorten the leverdavidh ...

I just removed the SD card to view some pictures and now when I put it back in it will not latch and stay down. I have tried two other cards as well and none will latch and stay down. They do not seem to go down as far as I am used to seeing them, like something is in the slot but with a light and magnifying glass I do not see anything in the way. Any ideas? TX DW

I was brought a coolpix Nikon camaera at the end of March and after buying the correct memory card for it, I always get an error message saying that this card can not be used.

A small chip of plastic broke off of my SD card inside the card slot of my XSi camara. We cant get it out, & fell deeper in the slot (out of site) when we tried turning it upside down to shake it out. Will this cause problems with my camara or is the SD card slot, in the camara, self contained, so the plastic chip will stay in that area?

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving


CCD problem is the likely cause here and once you have another one put in camera should work fine. ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE S414 Digital Camera
