Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
Camera was working fine. Took memory card out to see the size of it. Put it back in. Camera wouldn't turn on. Charged batteries. Put charged batteries in and still does not work. I take the memory card out and it turns on. HELP!!!! What is wrong?
Think you may have bent a card pin. Remove the card and the camera's batteries. Look in the card slot for any bent pins. If you see one, don't fret, it may be fixable. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible (one from the dollar store is fine for this). Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster. Take a breather in between if needed.
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.
If there are no bent pins in the slot, then the next obvious thing to try is a different CF card.
