Question about Canon EOS 1100D Rebel T3 Body Only Digital Camera
When you insert the card, it just pops back up...however when you close the battery door on it the camera still reads the card as normal and it still takes/records pictures. What causes this? Can it be fixed? I own multiple dslrs and the Rebel is the primary one I carry round so it saddens me that something could be wrong and hope it can be fixed.
It sounds like the spring-loaded catch that holds the SD card in is missing, broken, or the spring is too weak. If it's reading the card by just closing the battery door, then the card is making a circuit with the camera's internal contacts, but that is far from ideal, and I would not be surprised if that method caused additional damage in the long run. I recommend you bring it to a reputable camera shop, and see what the cost would be for the repair. I suspect it would be a LOT cheaper than breaking the camera or an internal circuit board by trying to kludge a solution. The parts are probably a few bucks, it's the labor cost that you would end up paying for, but better that than breaking the device.

try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.

So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.

SOURCE: memory card error
Check the slot and see if the pins inside are fine, no breakages, free from dust etc. Try turning the camera on and off (completely remove batteries etc).

You will need to read the manual. I f you have a basic
understanding of how ISO, shutterspeed & Aperture width
combine to determine the 'right exposure.
Set the camera to Av (aperture priority mode). Half press the shutter button and see the light meter indicator to see how well exposed your shot will be. For most cases you would be aiming for a value of 0 (properly exposed). The metering mode determines what part of the frame is used to compute the correct amount of light. For starters begin with pattern metering. Try and aim for a shutter speed of 1/125 or more if you are using the 17-55 mm EF-S f3/5-f5.6. Try and shoot at 40 mm F/5.6 (in Av mode this can be set by rotating the dial near the shutter button.
All the best
