    I have tried everything I can think of to shake the card loose but it wont budge. look like the only solution is to remove the cover and I can't see how this is done.

I'll take a different approach to this.
How important are the photos that were on that card?
If they are not that important, I would leave the card where it is, memory cards are fairly inexpensive to replace.

If it is something you must have, the link that was posted above does have the information for disassembling the printer.
The next choice after that would be to take it to a shop to have them disassemble and reassemble the unit. Be aware that the shop cost could be the same as replacing the printer.

The way products like this are made, you very well may have to spend an hour or 2 taking it apart and reassembling it.

I have taken many printers apart, and for the most part, it is a lot of nut and bolt work (take the screws out, and take the many layers apart)

Go to a repair shop, if you do it yourself you risk to waste the camera.

Use a tape, maybe scotch tape or electrical tape to pull the card out. Maybe you can use forceps to pull the card out. At least I was able to do it when I had the same problem.

Hello Jimphly, 

First try some easy solution.

Have you tried to turn upside down or side ways the printer?

That way if the card is not stuck it will come outside by the force of gravity.

Good luck and let me know if that didnt help,

    Have you tried placing a vacuum cleaner nozzle over the opening where the card has fallen into. Empty the machine BEFORE you try this, and if you have some available, place a ladies tights over the nozzle to catch the card before it goes into the vacuum bad. If not, use a new bag and let the card go into it.

Error code 6000 on canon pixima mini 260


6000 is a problem with the paper feed sensor on the platen roller inside. If something has fallen in that stops the rollers you get that error, a shop repair if you can't see anything inside.

Paper feed not straight, causing jambing


You need to look inside the slot where the paper is loaded with a flashlight and small mirror. Usually the only reason that happens is when something has fallen in where the paper goes. I usually find pins, paper clips, candy wrappers, or jewelry dropped inside. A paper clip straightened out can help remove the objects.

Dropped photocard inside of port and cannot retrieve it. seems to have fallen into a lower port.


Dismantle the cases of the printer to retrieve the card. I could tell you how to do it or or where to get a manual to show you how to do it... but you have not told us any info about your printer... so I can't help further.

Card reader


look under the rubber feet on the bottom and there should be 4 screws under there,but when you take it apart wear surgical gloves as the static off your hands will damage it.
