Question about Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera
While changing the memory card,the memory card pusher(spring)got trapped inside the camera, and while ongoing the maintainance they say that the whole 50 not bolts has to be released to take that off or else the spring may catch the electric circuit and damage the whole system. Is it true? Is there any possible remedy for this problem?
You have to remove the back, front, bottom and top covers, then remove the tripod plate on the bottom. This allows you access to the bottom circuit and the marked place to discharge the flash circuit (if the flash circuit is charged, which is is if you leave it on the green rectangle like most people, then you have 300 volts in that part of the circuit and if you do not discharge the flash circuit and you short it out then you can send 300 volts into a 6 volt circuit and short out your camera and turn it into a paperweight). Then you have to remove the main (rear) circuit board to get to this part [CG2-2819-000 PCB Ass\'y, SD] which has to be replaced (the SD card holder is part of this small circuit board). The usual cause of SD card release failures is that a small plastic pin the moves in an inverted V shaped slot breaks off. There is no way to fix this economically. Make sure you use an anti-static mat and ground strap.
If you think I am being overly cautious about discharging the flash - one of the two ground screws that hold the bottom board on in the 7D (similar to 60D) coming out and shorting part of the bottom circuit is the usual cause of the 7D ERR 40 your read about all over the internet.

New cards must be formatted in the camera. This erases and optimizes the card for that particular camera. Be sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position.
