Re: photo card inserted backwards error
Try a full NVM reset on the unit and check
Reset Steps are.
Unplug the power cord from the unit when there is still power in the All-In-One and press and hold the # and No 9 Button without releasing the buttons plugg the power cable back, it should come up with a message as reset
If the screen go's blank after you connect power cable, then release the keys and turn the power On, it will come up with a message as Full NVM Reset

You need to insert your compact flash memory card into an USB CF card reader then plug the card reader into the USB port of your computer. Your computer will detect it as an external storage device then you can open the image folder and copy the photos to your computer.
I am not real familiar with these things, I am More familiar with large copiers and Printers.
But i will give it a shot anyway?
Here is my suggestion..
All of these machines have Senors in then, which can send a false signal.
Take the ink Cartridge out and get a lint free cloth and a big can of air.
Turn it on it side and spray it out with that can of air. Wipe any dust / dirt you might see. (be careful and gentle)
Espically clean any metal contacts that you might see as well.
and a flash light might help to see..
Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples of CF card readers from Amazon:
You will also need to use a card reader with this software. Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again. Note that formatting will totally erase your card. Turn on the camera, press the menu button, select the tools menu. Go down to the selection that states your CF card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.
Sounds like the card has become corrupted. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. Also, highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download your pictures in the future. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon for your CF card:
And finally, recommend formatting your card in your camera only AFTER you've recovered your photos (this will erase the card). This should fix the card for future use. Turn on the camera, select menu, then select the tools menu. Scroll down to the selection outlining your's cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.
Remove the card and look in the slot for a bent pin. If you see one, remove the batteries also. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, 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.
