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.

SOURCE: My camera with new batteries in it says, Memory

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.

Memory card will not go back into my S700. It stops 3/16" short of being in place.

I don't want you to think I'm calling you less than intelligent, but it sounds like you need to flip the card over. Of course, it could be the spring... I would contact the US branch of Fuji.

I have an older FR350 nailer. The coil return spring broke. I have the replacement and want to fix it. Do I have to take the whole nail guid assembly off to replace this part!

The best way to replace the spring is to remove the rails entirely. Take closeup photos of the gun from all sides with your digital camera or camera phone to help you with placement of all screws. You will need small clamp, small vicegrips and paperclip or piece of soft wire with small hook bent on one end to temp hold spring in place. With rails in hand check if pusher will slide out front of rails (some rails have a small casting preventing pusher from coming out front ~ remove tailpiece and slide out back ). Locate small screw /nut holding spring in place (keep this side of rails facing you). With new spring in place slide pusher into rails until you can catch the eye of the spring with bent wire at front of rails. While holding wire with vicegrip pull back pusher a few inches and clamp in place with c-clamp. Pull or let in bent wire to align eye of spring to attachment hole and install screw (you can leave bent wire in eye and just break off later. With screw attached break off wire and install rails to gun. Check sliding action of pusher before installing bolts at rear of rails. The pusher on some porter cable guns have plastic sliders that easily break with normal use and should be replaced as needed. Good luck.

The Memory Card Stuck in The Camera,m How to remove it?

The spring lock inside the camera is probably broke. Attempt to manually remove the card with a pair of tweezers if you cannot push the card, in, to release the spring lock. The camera will have to be dis-assembled to fix the spring lock.

Memory Card Stuck in slot

Disassembly and repair isn't something for the faint of heart nor the inexperienced with tools. If you don't have the best buy extended warranty for this device and since it's been over a year, your options are slim.

It is possible to repair the spring mechanism on these devices, but you'll need some fine tiped screwdrivers bowls for parts, a good memory for where parts came from to be put back, annd a lot of patience.

The spring is a leaf spring on the bottom of the card slot and the retention clip is on the right about half-way into the card slot.

I wish you the best of luck with your repair.

Memory card stuck in camera

Normally the card is spring loaded, so when you press down on it, it will pop out. If the card is stuck solid, don't try and force it out. Be gentle and try coax it out with some needle nose pliers.
If you feel the plastic flexing or if anything may break, it may a case of dissembling the camera.

There is a strange sound coming from my camera

The grinding sound is the gears grinding in the lens. When you turn on the camera, the lens comes out. If you hear a low grinding noise the gears could have lent, sand, dust, etc. trapped between. It can become a problem over time. When you switch modes, lens will adjust to whatever setting. Thats why you get it sometimes and not all the time. And really theres not much you can do. You can try taking it to penn camera or ritz camera and ask them to use an air compressor to try and blow out whatever is in the gears, but its not going to be a quick easy fix depending on whats trapped. Cost of fixing your camera is around $120. Sony is not a cheap company.

As far as the memory card, have you formatted it? Whenever you delete pictures, the are still on the card. So you can still recover them with the right software. Try reformatting you card. Please bare with me im not positive word for word on your menu settings. Should be under Menu --> Tools (3rd option down. The picture to the right of it looks like a memory card) And go to format. You either 1 need a new memory card or 2 just need to format it. Please make sure that you are pushing the memory card all the way in the slot. Push in until it clicks. Its spring loaded.

Digital Camera film is stuck

Digital cameras don't have film, they use a memory card. Depending on the type of memory card, there's either a button right next to it that you push in and that will eject the memory card (ie: Compact flash), or if it's an SD card, just push in the card until it clicks... then the card will be spring activated and come out. Let me know if that helps. If not, repost the brand and model of camera.

Memory card is stuck in the drive-shuts down automatically

sometimes the card older gets damaged and brakes the only solution is to replace it, if u notice some grease inside u can put some alcohol or eter the last one is better, but be careful don´t put to much, because can damage the obturator, but first of all look into the slot and check if it´s ok, if thre contacts are fine, if so clean it with eter/alcohol, and insert the card and take it out to see if he realise the spring.
