If the pins aren't bent to bad, there are a chance that you could take the camera to a repairshop and ask them to either replace or bend back those pins that has been bent. A bit of warning i can be expensive due to the fact there are great deal of screws needed to be removed and several cables needs to be extracted from the cpu board, tough the expansionslot connector is located beneath the cpu board. It took me about 30minutes to disassemble the camera entirely so it's possible to repair the flash card pin connector. And about the same time to reassemble the camera.

My camera does not recognizes the memory card can not take any photos


The card could be locked, there is a little sliding switch on the side of the card. Is the card formatted? Usually on a new card you have to put it into the camera and go through the menus to the format card menu.

Format the cards in the camera. Make sure you download any pictures that might be on the cards first. Use a card reader if necessary.

Can't format a memory card for my minolta damage


Some brands cannot be used by some cameras. You should stick with the big brand names like Sandisk.

My Minolta DiMage A1 displays "no card" when memory card is inserted. It's not a new card...it's the same 128mb card I've used since I bought it. Any suggestions?!


If you're lucky, the CF card is faulty. It's going to be a very old card now if it's the original one supplied/bought with your A1. You've never upgraded to a larger card in all this time so it suggests you've never needed to. 128 and 256mb cards are virtually worthless now, so I'd be amazed if you couldn't get one for free via Yahoo FreeCycle. You can also try reformatting your card in a card reader/writer, but A1's and A2's often won't recognise a card formatted in this way and it can render them permanently unreadable by all A1/A2/A200 cameras.

If you're unlucky, then you've bent or broken one or more of the pins inside the card slot which connect to your card when you insert it. To check, get a bright torch and look down inside the card slot. Any bent pins will be self evident as there should be a neat double row of pins and missing pins will show up as gaps.

If you have bent pins then you've nothing to lose by trying to carefully straighten them, if you can't or if the pins are broken, then your camera is effectively irrepairable. Scrap A1's and A2's can both provide the part, but retreiving them from the donor camera is really difficult and so far I've never managed to refit one successfully and I've done a few now. A pro repair is simply not cost effective, especially when a perfectly good used A1 goes for around £40-£50 and the better A2's go for around £80-£100. If you're in North America you can expect prices to be even lower.

Konica Minolta Dimage 7Hi - Faulty


It could (note I'm saying could, not is) be a bent flash card pin. If you get it, take a look inside the camera's CF card slot. If a bent pin is spotted, remove the 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.

Now if you get it and there's NOT a bent pin in there (say it's a missing pin, a very different story) don't come back crying here! :-)

Camera doesn't acknowledge card when inserted into camera


Hi

Whats the capacity of your memory card? check for compatibility of card, since memory cards that have 4gb to 8gb are not compatible with some cameras. check as well from your cameras manufacturer if they have a firmware that will support such cards for your device/camera.

Hope this helps
