Re: Photo card in backwards message but no card in...
I am not real familiar with these things, I am More familiar with large copiers and Printers.
But i will give it a shot anyway?
Here is my suggestion..
All of these machines have Senors in then, which can send a false signal.
Take the ink Cartridge out and get a lint free cloth and a big can of air.
Turn it on it side and spray it out with that can of air. Wipe any dust / dirt you might see. (be careful and gentle)
Espically clean any metal contacts that you might see as well.
and a flash light might help to see..
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

the card may have been bent or had scratches on its metal parts. (how bad did you force it?) if its not bent and the metal parts are not scratched see if it will show you the same results on a different machine. Since you have not identified the machine, i am not sure if the card was inserted into the camera or a computer backwards. either way the metal parts need to go into the machine. Check to see if any other items are touching the metal on the card. (and I assume you mean SD card, since this camera can only take SDHC, SD or SDXC cards.)
Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.
SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible. If the card you are trying to format is above 2GB, it will be an SDHC card.
In the absence of the contents of the message, I am going to guess that it is having some issue with the memory card. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. Some cameras seem to work with too-large memory cards at first, then throw a serious tantrum as the card starts to fill.
I think you need to try formatting the card, using the camera's own function to do so. This will establish whether the card is compatible with the camera. BEFORE you do this, save your pictures to your computer, as they will be deleted by the format.

ouch ...look inside the camera where the CF plugs in .. you may have a bent pin ... some CF cards have a nice lead in taper so it centers the pins as you plug it in .. but some have hardly any taper (no idea why they make some this way) .. if the pin is off just a little with such cards then it bends the pin ... you might see a mark on the CF connector where the pin hit ... also if the card is forced in backwards or out of position you can bend pins ... i have one really nice camera that has 12 missing or bent pins .. someone tried to plug in an adapter that was poorly made (over and over) backwards and forwards .. that camera is spare parts now ..
Try a full NVM reset on the unit and check
Reset Steps are.
Unplug the power cord from the unit when there is still power in the All-In-One and press and hold the # and No 9 Button without releasing the buttons plugg the power cable back, it should come up with a message as reset
If the screen go's blank after you connect power cable, then release the keys and turn the power On, it will come up with a message as Full NVM Reset
