Memory Card will not engage.

I think the internal prongs are bent (Kids). Is there a way to take the back off to look inside this area?

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.

Pc card problem bent

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.

Broken cf prongs

Wow, CF cards. Well, as you said, the prongs broke which means you need it repaired.

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.

The internal power supply prongs are bent. How do


Thanks for using fixya..

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)

Thanks and have a nice day

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.

Broken prongs where memory card seats.

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!

Memory card won't go in due to wires bent up

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.

Hope that helps...

Memory Card problems

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.

Memory card not reading in camera

look into the camera with a bright light and see if any pins are bent where the memory card goes in. also check to see if the card is unlocked and check the card to see if it works in another device.
