I have a memory stick in my printer and can't get it out. How do I eject the stick? I have a HP Photosmart C3100 all-in-one. I had this happen yesterday and am afraid to try most things tho' I did put...

I think you are talking about the Memory Card (Memory Stick). Hope you installed it with the adapter. If there's no problem with the slot or with the pins inside the slot, it should pop out when it's pushed in with a "click" sound. Push the memory card and release, it will be ejected. But if there's problem, you'll need a pair of tweezers to pull it out. It will not be able to easily pulled out, hold it very tight and push in once and then pull out, it should come out.

If a pin or few pins are bent or twisted, it should be done by a technician or by a pro, otherwise you may damage the card.

This is all what I could suggest you about this. I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hp photosmart 3210 all in one memory card error no memory card is inserted but this error message persists

Try the same memory card in a pc to check if it works ... if it does then check the slot where the card gets plugged in... try a different card that also does not work means printer memory card slot is bad

I put a memory card in the slot and i don't know

The memory card first may have needed a adapter before inserting into the memory card reader. if you can't get a grip on the memory card, you might have to use tweezers.

How do I reset my HP photosmart digital camera R742 to read the memory card. It's not reading it.

Try another memory card. It can be that the memory card stopped working. Also check if the tab on the card is not in the locked position.

Once you checked this, then I will conclude it is the camera. Are you able to insert the card so that it stays in without it trying to pop out? Maybe that one of the pins in the card reader is bent. This prevents the camera from recognizing the card.

When I try to put my memory card into my Canon EOS 50D Camera memory slot, it won't go in all the way. And I have tried a million times.

The two most likely causes are the card direction (I assume you've tried flipping it over), and bent pins in the bottom of the card slot. Take a look deep into the slot and look for any bent pins. They're very delicate, and don't like to be bent back and forth. I have had good success by straightening them with a thin screwdirver.

Try a different memory card. Some of these cameras may not support large sizes. Try a smaller card such as a 512 or a 128.

Look at the bottom of the memory card slot, you probably bent one or more of the contactor pins. Use a small screwdriver and carefully try to straight the bent pin then carefully put the memory card back in. From now on, use a USB cable for downloading your pictures and don't pull the card out anymore as the pin is probably weaker than before and can break. Good luck

Granddaughter forced memory card into slot incorrectly and bent pins

A long pair of needlenose pliers, or possibly tweezers. As you've noticed, it's near impossible to disassemble the needles from the mem card housing.
