Re: Memory Card will not engage.
Generally, the mem card slot is an enclosed component, so even if you had it completely removed from the camera, it's still hard to see the pins. The easiest way is to shine a gright light into the cavity and visually inspect with a magnifying glass.

It is likely that you did not damage the actual card, but rather the card port on the machine. It is possible that if none of the pins are actually broken, they could be straightened by a repair technician, though this is tedious and not often successful. If the pins cannot be straightened, it is likely that the main circuit board will need to be replaced. I would highly recommend taking your machine to a reputable sewing machien repair shop in your area for certain diagnosis and repair.
Wow, CF cards. Well, as you said, the prongs broke which means you need it repaired. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=139&modelid=11154#SupportDetailAct
Advice: If you can, sell that and upgrade to the XTi or XT1 version of the Rebel. Now they use SD cards which doesn't have the prongs to break off. Also SD is more of the major memory card that is compatible with electronics. Otherwise, get a point and shoot. They are cheap and also use SD cards.
Repair cost: 2 Prongs replacement = All the prongs replacements. I'm not sure if they have that type in stock anymore. My guess is ranging from 60-100ish USD. Usually they will check to see what is the problem and bill you for their labor and parts.
If the prongs are bent, all you need to do is to get a pair of pliers and try to re-align them. If that is not possible, you can try to open up the power supply and directly tap the power cable into the prong's cable line (if you have an idea how to do this, go on and try it. If you have absolutely no idea how to do it, then its better to just bring your power supply to a local electrician, they can probably fix the problem in no time)
okay your sensor is probably dusty or broken there is 2 prongs on the backside of the case make sure they are intact and pushing down on the prongs okay if that dosent do it then stuff those prongs with somethin that will hold contineuous pressor kk let me kno how it works
i hvae had this happen many times... ok this is what you will need to do. take the memory card out and look at the little brass things and clean them with something thats cotton. repeat this till it reads. i hope this will help.
Hey jarapo, There are many repair centers you could bring your camera to. I would suggest either contacting Canon and finding an authorized service center in your area, or you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out for service. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
The memory card is supposed to slide over top of those pins, they would need bent back down but I can not think of an easy way for you to do that yourself. If you have a service plan, now might be the time to use it.
Remove the card and look inside the card slot of the camera to see if there are any bent pins. If you do find bent pins, you can try to bend them straight (it will be tough). If you do, DO NOT use a metal object. Use plastic or wood only.
