A quick check on Ebay showed parts camera's available for less than 20 bucks or working cameras for 40 dollars and up. Fixing this problem is going to most likely involve replacing the card slot, and cost more than buying a good used camera. If you are detail oriented you can fix this but it is tedious.

Card pin bent - Nikon D100


Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. It's very likely that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed). Just keep nudging it upward/straighter a "tiny bit at a time". Whatever you do, don't try to unbend it with one push/nudge, you won't be able to do it.

It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's the best that you can get it, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

None of my SD cards will lock in place in my Nikon D50 camera. Is this fixable?


Do you have insert it with a wrong direction? Commonly, when you put in a SD card with a right direction, press it until the card has got to the end then loose your finger, the card will in place..

My d300 is showing r12 code how do i fix that


R12 is telling you that you have 12 pictures remaining in its internal buffer ... if it continues to show that then it is having trouble transfering to the memory card ... it is possible that you have a fake memory card or maybe a bad one (or ouch a bent pin in the camera) .. there are lots of fake cards around now ... if the card has worked in the past you might want to reformat it or check it on your computer .. unfortunatly its not hard to bend a pin inside your camera if the CF card is inserted wrong ... you can look in the slot with an led flashlight .. there should be no missing or bent pins ..

if you cant solve the problem then call :

Nikon D70 memory card won't insert all the way


It certainly could be. Without a card in the way, take a look into the card chamber to see if you have a bent pin. They should all be straight up, and a bent one will be obvious. If it's just slightly bent, it can often be straightened with a small jeweller's screwdriver. They are delicate, so bending them repeatedly will break them off.

I have a Nikon D70 and am unable to insert memory card all the way, i double checked that it is the correct card and inserted the right direction.


STOP! You have just bent a few pins. Your camera has a male connection. Meaning it has pins sticking out. If you are unable to insert a memory card, that means a pin is bent and is not going into the holes in your memory card. This is a common problem with cameras that accept a compact flash card. This can be an easy fix or it can be a very hard fix.

Ive fixed a couple of cameras like this with a pair of tweezers. flash light (or some big source of light) and a magnifying glass. You need to look into the slot on the camera under light and look at all the pins sticking out. Look for the bent pins and use the tweezers to bend them back. Be careful not to keep bending the pin back and forth, as this will break the pin off. Ive seen cameras work without certain pins, but this is not something you want to do.

To have an SLR fixed is a minimum $160 dollars depending on where you take it too. The D70 is a good camera.

Please do not stick the memory card back in. Check the memory card to make sure all the holes are clear and have nothing blocking the holes or make sure a hole has gotten bigger and merged into one. I would use a different card once the pins are are sticking straight.

Hope this helps you.

Try a different memory card. Some of these cameras may not support large sizes. Try a smaller card such as a 512 or a 128.

look into memory inserting slot if you see a bent pin, I doubt it, most likely something internal failed, as of now fixing the camera is not worth it unles Nikon fix it and most likely they will as this is possibly internal component failure, contact them and send it for a repair, they will give you estimate, if it is free or acceptable let them fix it if not garbage can will gladly accept it and move on.

Granddaughter forced memory card into slot incorrectly and bent pins


A long pair of needlenose pliers, or possibly tweezers. As you've noticed, it's near impossible to disassemble the needles from the mem card housing.
