Depending on how much space between pins you have:
In the old days of computers there were wire wrap tools with a sole purpose for tightly wrapping wire around a metal pin. You might look at trying a wire wrap tool with some thin wire. if you can wrap it, you will be able to pull it.

I have a Conon Powershot S1 IS camera and bought a Transcend Compact Flash 4GB memory card and when I insert in into the camera a red light flashes at the menu and set buttons?

Have your new memory card inserted into your PC to test for any virus. Format the memory car.
Please check if your cannon is adaptive to the 4GB (check the instruction manual) if the card shows the same fault now after inserting.
Use another card into the camera to confirm if the card slot is faulty.

Cannon Powershot A540 SanDisk SDHC 4 gb I insert the card and receive a memory card error. Can't format


A 4 gb memory card is beyond the capacity of your Cannon A540. It is too large. I would stick with a 1 gb card in that camera.

From Cannon, I just got back my camera back, after having it reworked for the purple image problem (a recall on this model). I took pictures yesterday find yesterday and today, trying to download, I 'read'...

Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see the following:
