It seems that the CF reader mechanical assembly part is loose or it has out of place an internal part.

It may be caused by excessive force in pushing/pulling a CF memory card, or due to a manufacturing issueof the camera.

The solution is to open the camera, and check what is causing the problem and fix it.

If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to return it. If not, then you will need to pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you have experience, skills and patience in fixing electronic devices.

Such repair will require some philips screwdrivers, a soldering iron, soldering wire, and a st of tweezers.

There are in internet some guides to open and disassembly Canon XT 350D or Rebel 300d cameras. The disassembly process with the XTi 400D is very similar. You can Google fr such guidelines.

Best regards,

Card reader pins came out


Basically no. You need the pins to connect to the memory card to transfer and store photos from the camera to the card. There is no simple way to bypass it unless the camera can also use another type of memory card, in which case you use that second slot.

My memory card just got stuck in my Canon Rebel XTi. The button to the side of the card is stuck down. Is there a back up release?


Repairing camera is a specialty. so unless you have this skill you'll have to let someone else fix it. i sent my camera to be fixed to: www.camerarepair.com they were reasonably priced and have a 6 month warranty. they're pretty quick also.

Photos are locked


I'm guessing you have an SD card. On the side opposite the "cut-off corner" there is a little switch. Down is locked - up is unlocked.
That should be it.

Canon XTi built in flash


With the flash in the up position and looking at the flash housing, there should be a small, metal hook. Make sure it's not bent or distorted. I should be straight and spring loaded all the way towards the front of the body. Check for freedom of movement also.
