    Thank you so much! After much poking and probing, my husband and I tried your suggestion using crazy glue gel and a popsicle stick cut straight. It worked perfectly and there appears to be no damage to my camera or the errant memory card either.

If you cannot take apart the housing to remove the card here is one technique I have used that requires a steady hand. Provided the end of the card is visible but not exposed enough to be able to grab it with small tweezers, using a small piece of wire or paper clip, bend the end so that a small part will lay flat against the exposed end of the card. With extreme care, place a very small amount of quick-curing epoxy on the bent end of the wire and place it against the card and hold in place until hardened. Be VERY careful not to use too much glue or you may wind up gluing the card in place. If luck is in your favor you can use the wire to pull the card out when the epoxy hardens.
Best of luck, may the force be with you.

Troubleshoot Non-Retracting Lens Due to Camera Drop

<span>Remove the batteries from your digital camera and leave them out for a few minutes. If you are using rechargeable batteries, make sure the batteries have a full charge before placing them back into the digital camera. It is recommended that you charge the batteries for at least 6 hours. If you are using regular AA or AAA batteries, make sure you are using brand new batteries of the same brand. Turn the camera back on to see if the lens will retract. If that doesn't work, turn the camera back off and try turning it back on while you are pressing the function or OK button.<br />If the batteries were low when the camera was dropped, the lens may not retract properly until the camera is reset. Remove the memory card from your digital camera and install new batteries. Do not put the memory card back into the digital camera and turn the digital camera back on. You will get an error message regarding the memory card, but that is okay. With some digital cameras, leaving the memory card out will trigger a reset within the digital camera.<br /></span><span>If you have an audio/video cable (AV), insert that cable into the digital camera and turn it on. By using an AV cable, the LCD screen will not power on, which means there will be more battery power available to the digital camera. If any dirt got into the digital camera when you dropped it, the extra power may help the camera retract the lens.</span> <span>Place your digital camera on its back on a hard surface. The lens should be pointed towards the ceiling. While pressing the shutter button, turn the digital camera on. The idea behind this concept is that the camera will try to autofocus, which may help seat the lens barrel pins back into their slot.<br /><b><br /></b><br />It is possible that when you dropped your digital camera, dirt, sand particles, etc. may have lodged themselves into the lens barrel. Gently blow around the lens barrel to knock lose any particles. Using a microfiber cloth, wipe off the lens and try to wipe as deep into the lens barrel as you can. You can also try using compressed air and blowing it in the gaps around the lens barrel. Be careful not to blow any of the compressed air onto the lens itself, as the pressure of the air may damage your lens. The idea here is that if there are any particles lodged in the lens barrel by the lens mechanism, you will be able to knock them lose.<br /></span>

Bathing suit lodged inside dryer vent chamber

Without actually seeing exactly where the item of clothing is lodged, this will be a tough problem to resolve. However, as a guess I will suggest the following:

Carefully pull your dryer away from the wall, far enough so you can get behind it. Be carefull not to stretch, pinch or damage your gas line. Next, with a screwdriver, unscrew the large vent clamp that attaches the aluminum vent to your dryer. Pull this vent pipe off the dryer inlet and see if you can access the lodged item. If not, you may have to attack the problem from within the dryer.

Good luck!

Keeps making holes in clothes

Carefully run your hand around the inside of the washing drum to check for catches or damage, perhaps a screw or similar that has lodged in the drain holes of the drum. Remove the agitator, if applicable, and check for foreign object(s) lodged underneath.

I dropped my psp while i was playing a game and now, when i play that particular game it hangs. i tried playing the other games saved in my memory card and they all work perfectly well i tried to reformat...

If you purchased the game from the PSN redownload it....If you are using a UMD then inspect the casing for the disc and make sure there isnt a piece of plastic broken on the casing, I had a game that had a piece of plastic that had broken off and lodged itself inside the casing and when I played it it scratched the disc so bad it wouldnt work
