The solution had to be some way of adhering an object to the point of the pin. Cyanoacrylic was ruled out as the risk of gluing the pin to the base was too risky. We fashioned a soldering iron tip so that it would enter the housing (without damage to the sides) and fashioning a tip small enough to contact one pin without touching the others. Then, using a second iron to melt the solder, the first was dipped into this to tin the tip (dipping into flux first) the tip was then applied carefully in order to 'clean' the pin tip. Once bonded a wet cotton bud was used to cool the irons tip. this gave enough strength to pull the pin upwards.
The surrounding pins were carefully bent away in order to allow more clearance for vision and 'wobbly hands'. A bright light and magnifier used in order to determine precise shape and location etc. Being in my 60's i need glasses but my son managed without. A steady hand is needed of course but with something to rest one's elbow it makes life easier. Needless to say we straightened the remaining pins before trying the card. I have no intentions of removing that card until i can get inside to do a proper job of the pins and base.
I must say that the design is extremely poor as there is no secondary form of support other than friction to hold the pins on top of which the card can be inserted incorrectly and, if in a hurry, pressure applied with resulting bent pins. Not designed but rather 'that'll do'. With modern technology the whole thing could be designed a lot better and certainly more user friendly. Even hard disk drives will take a good few knocks before failing (i believe something in the order of 400G i read somewhere.)

Canon powershot s21s problem


The symptoms are indicative of a CCD imager failure. But you can sometimes jog it back by trying the following:

If the above works, recommend taking a photo at least once a week in a well-lit area to keep it running.
