At this point, you have two choices. You can send it in for service and you could try to straighten them yourself. If the bend is not severe, you could try coaxing them back into position with some kind of probe such as a dental pick or something similar. If you mess up, you still have the option of sending it for service. However, explain your problem in an e-mail to the service dept. and get an estimate first...you may decide it's not worth it.

I can not insert the memory card all the way into my polaroid 12.0mp digital camera what's wrong


The pins for your memory card slot inside the camera or on the memory card itself could be bent, you should be able to see this by using a flashlight to look inside the camera for bent pins.

Cannot read comapct flash memory card


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 this link.

Xsi rebel will not read or reformat memory card


You need to have a look at the slot where the memory card goes in. Using a light, look down in the slot at the pins the match up to the card. There may be one or more bent or broken. If the pins are damaged, then it would be a major repair. Usually once they have bent, trying to straighten them back causes them to break off.

I am having trouble with computer not being able to read my memory card. Got a new memory card and I took pictures with it and they showed up on the camera put memory card in computer and said there were...


Have a look at the pins at the back of the memory card reader. You may need a torch to see to the back. My kids stuck something in my computer card slot and bent the pins so my cards would not read.

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.

No memory card


Did you check the slot to see if any of the pins are bent?

Problem


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.
