Wouldn't recommend that you try to replace the reader yourself, as you may likely cause more damage to the camera. If you wish the reader replaced, recommend professional repair (call 1-800-OK-CANON for genuine Canon service).

However, if it's merely a bent pin problem, there is a good chance that you may be able to unbend it/them. Please see the following, as it's worth a try before sending off for service:

Memory card cannot be read


Hi there,

Have a nice day

My name is adieh.

With regards to your problem with memory card. I suggest you to
confirm first whether the memory card is still good or bad by using a card reader, put the camera
memory card into the card reader then connect it to your system, see whether the system will read your card, if the system doesn't read it, it simply means that memory card is bad and you need to replace it with a genuine memory card, but if it works it means that the card slot on the camera is not good. So, you neither need to service your camera or you replace the memory card.


Hope it helps.

Thank you for using fixya

I have e05 message then an err 002 message, not sure how to fix. Is it possible the prongs are bent were the CF vard is input


Error 002 says memory card is full. Try to delete the card or reformat the card and observe
if camera wont allow to format the card. Try plugging it to a computer or laptop that hs Memory card slot and can read SD/MMC cards and format the card from the laptop

Broken cf prongs


Wow, CF cards. Well, as you said, the prongs broke which means you need it repaired. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=139&modelid=11154#SupportDetailAct

Advice: If you can, sell that and upgrade to the XTi or XT1 version of the Rebel. Now they use SD cards which doesn't have the prongs to break off. Also SD is more of the major memory card that is compatible with electronics. Otherwise, get a point and shoot. They are cheap and also use SD cards.

Repair cost:
2 Prongs replacement = All the prongs replacements. I'm not sure if they have that type in stock anymore. My guess is ranging from 60-100ish USD. Usually they will check to see what is the problem and bill you for their labor and parts.

Card has wrong format?


The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the camera cannot read your card.

Memory card


What type of memory card do you have? Also sometimes the metal prongs bend when you take the card in and out the camera, sometimes people tend to put the card in backwards forcing it to go in and then it makes the prongs bend.

Broken prongs where memory card seats.


Hey jarapo,
There are many repair centers you could bring your camera to. I would suggest either contacting Canon and finding an authorized service center in your area, or you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

look into the camera with a bright light and see if any pins are bent where the memory card goes in. also check to see if the card is unlocked and check the card to see if it works in another device.
