It sounds like the bent pens shorted out some electronics inside the camera. You will need to send the camera in for repair. If the camera is no longer under warranty it may be cheaper to replace it than to repair it. This is something your company or supervisor should pay for, of course.

Olympus E520 compact flash card error


I hope you never tried to put in a memory card in, the wrong way around. This could have damaged the contacts in the camera. Or perhaps only one or two contacts in the camera are dirty or oxidised?
With a bright light and perhaps a magnifying glass, look in the memory card holder, to see of all contacts are clean and shiny and not one is bent, ir has a little dent.
If a contact is dirty use a little wooden or plastic tooth pick, to solve the problem. eventually make the point of the pick a bit softer, be cats for rubbing of some dirt, this will be enough. You never should use sharp looks in or close to a camera.

I accidentally dropped my samsung S1070 while I was taking a photo, and the lens is now stuck out. It won't turn on, and we've tried replacing the batteries and taking them out. I've also tried...


Hi,

Check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip.The next thing to try is examine both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors (note some SD card doors do not have this switch) that activates when the doors are closed. If they don't, the camera won't start to prevent damage to the flash card or camera startup sequence. For most cameras its usually a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.
If you've tried all of the above and still no luck, the problem is then likely to be internal to the camera. One example would be that if your camera uses Compact Flash, check to make sure all pins are present and aligned in the card slot (if bent, simply unbend/straighten them with a skinny "jewelers" screwdriver, then insert the flash card for final realignment).


Thank you!

How do i install a 64gb compact flash card i my sony a55 camera


The a55 doesn't use Compact Flash cards. It uses Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD/SDHC cards. SDHC cards max out at 32GB. Larger SDXC cards will not work in the a55.

My camera keeps saying "the card is locked"


hi
take out the memory card look on the left hand side of it and it might say in little letters lock and theres a little thing that moves up and down ... move it up...
The switch / notch works in same way as the notches on compact audio cassettes and videotape cassette tapes or floppy disks. A closed or covered notch is writable, while an open notch (or removed tab) is protected.
If the switch becomes broken or falls off then the card will become a write-protected ROM card and no longer be writable. A possible troubleshooting solution would be to apply tape over the notched area (avoiding the connectors and the other notch) to configure the card in a permanent writable state."

check out the below picture......

"Disk is unreadable" message when inserting a CF Card - Macintosh OS 9.x


Certain system software is needed to allow a Macintosh (running Macintosh OS 9.x or earlier) to access mounted compact flash cards. If this required software is not installed the computer will not be able to recognize the card and will display the following error: DO NOT press the "Initialize" button, as this will completely erase the card and destroy all images. Click the "Eject" button and then enable the necessary system software. The following Extensions or Control Panels need to be activated: File Exchange - Control Panel Foreign File Access - Extension The "Extensions Manager" Control Panel (found under the "Apple" menu) can be used to enable these items. After switching them "On" restart the computer to apply the changes. After restarting the computer insert the card and it will mount on the desktop like any removable disk.
