Memory Stick Will Not Engage

I have a DSC-W55 and recently something happened to the memory stick slot. I cannot get the memory to lock into place and stay in the camera. It just keeps springing back out...also the camera will not power on (not sure if it should without a memory stick inserted). There is a possibility that my wife may have inserted it backwards and then realized her mistake and turned it around. Perhaps one of the locking mechanisms are jammed??? Anyhow, has anyone disassembled a DSC-W55 to fix the memory slot? Thanks!

You need to replace the damaged memory slot with new one. If you know basic electronics and have tools for replacement, pls goahead.

"re-insert the memory stick" error


Try cleaning the contacts on the memory stick. I've read that a pencil eraser should be used; I used a soft cloth (T shirt) & then I blew into the slot in the camera that holds the memory stick to clean anything that may be interfering with making a good contact. First try: success!
