Question about Cameras
Before I try your excellent advice out, I gotta know if the little brass/metal clip down the slot on the rightside near the bottom is what is out of whack! It looks to be at some weird angle and I'm wondering do I bend it toward the insides of the camera as opposed to the battery side of the slot.
It's approx. 1/8 of an inch in length.
Oh, and thanks...
Here's a web-page I put up - http://fire.prohosting.com/manisask/dct50gateway.jpg - with a basic drawing of the camera parts concerned. I don't know how to do the unsoldering/soldering work you recommend. But, maybe I can just get the sensor out, that is, just as long as I know what the sensor is and where it is.
The drawing is of the back of the camera where the circuit board fits right up against the camera's body that has been unscrewed from its insides. The printed wiring has been 'un-plugged' from its receptacle.
The memory card slot's shield is more accessible now, yet only if you know what I'm looking for, and where?!
I can now see the 9 contact pins for the card to be read from each of its brass/metal tongues (contact springs).
There's a brass clip at an angle - is this the sensor?
The bottom drawing is the memory card slot shield with part of the slot's insides revealed.
In the memory card slot on the rightside at the bottom is the clip that sticks out at an angle. I don't know if this is bent out of normal configuration, or what??
Thanks for your time...

As you can see on the memory card, there is a hole where the lock button slides back and forth. The camera is thinking that the memory card is locked, until the the camera's sensor finds the empty hole in the card. You will probably have to take the camera apart, unsolder the memory card shield, then examine how to repair or trick the memory card sensor. If that is not possible for you,, then I would just remove the sensor by digging it out. Logical output for that sensor should be no signal for the unlocked position anyways. Using the lock feature would no longer be possible then.
