Question about Digital Cameras
I disassembled our Gateway DC-T50, but in the memory card slot/bay I was unable to access the contact mechanisms, or parts that mate the card with the camera insides.
I got the camera back together and sometimes, as before, I can apply pressure to the front metal casing and the back metal casing and thereby make the necessary contact. It'll flash of a photo, but now it won't be recorded on the memory card.
I've tried other memory cards and the same thing happens...
Gateway just tells me to take it to a 3/rd. party camera repair facility.
There is a contact switch inside the memory card slot that can be modified to always be reading a memory card. It is a long shot for a novice to complete, but not impossible. Probably will involve bending a contact point, or shorting out contact point with a piece of foil or solder. A new board could cost 40-80 dollars I suppose.
