I recently had some trouble when getting my memory card stuck in the slot. In the process of getting it out I must have broke something. Whenever I turn the camera on it just has a blue error screen saying close card cover. The camera will not go to any other screen even though the door/cover is closed. So I carefully took it apart and notice that right where the plastic piece from the door/cover enters in to the camera. there are 2 small holes where some piece of small metal or something was. I have read a couple opinions online and one states that I should find 4 square areas with solder and solder a piece of wire horizantally within them? Is there any thing that you guys could suggest, and if not would be able to help me out in locating the square areas? Anykind of help you can send this way would be much appreciated.

Look at the card where the lock tab is, Now look in the slot on the camera where that card goes, Check for a tab on the camera that hits the tab on the card. If it is missing, stuck or broken you get that error. This is tricky because the slot has a little door on it that has to be held open on some models, also you need a light. You may be able to use a sewing needle or eyeglass screwdriver to probe the locking tab sensor.
The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again. To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.
The photo processing shop most likely will have trouble downloading the photos from your camera/memory card. I suggest you purchase an USB memory stick and copy the photos to this USB memory stick and then take the USB memory stick to the photo processing shop.
Take a small flash light and see if there is a part of a memory card in there, if there is cleaning it out would solve the problem. Also make sure you're putting the memory card in the right way. I've you've done that and it's still giving you problems try going into the menu's and formatting the memory card in the camera.
I just want to ask if have you tried to check if the battery is completely charged before trying to use and checked the new memory card?
* try to use a new fully charged battery.
* try to clean with soft and dry cloth the memory card slot.
* try to reformat the memory card because possible that memory card was not yet formatted for camera use.
If you already done with this steps, I suugest that you have to bring your digital camera in its service center, if it is sonny,samsung or what ever be the brand. Possible that the repairman damaged the lcd while trying to get rid of the stuck memory card. Because if the only problem was the memory card, the lcd should not be affected because you can still use the camera with its internal memory. Try to bring it to the specialized technician of your camera. If you think if its still under warranty, that will be a big help.
It is probably having trouble with the capacity of the memory card. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards.
You don't say what type of memory card you have. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
you need a computer with a memory card slot, my gateway has one, but my wifes does not. Point being you need to get access to a computer with a memory card slot, then go to my computer, click on your memory card under removable devices, and delete the images manually.
There should be a tiny lever on the side of the memory card. Unlock the card by pushing the lever up. If it still says memory card is full, take out the battery and push the memory card further into the slot. It should not move while it is in the slot. If it "floats" when you close the battery door, it is not down far enough into the slot. Return the battery and close the door.
