The cardreader has a crumpled (metallic) part. How to get to it to try to fix it? Where can I find a manual (or video, or whatever) telling me how to disassemble the camera? I can see it but it is impossible to get to it.

The manual, on page 87 and 88 says that some computers or laptops and even CF cardreaders, need to power down, before CF card is inserted. They advice to check the manual from the cardreader. The manual is still online.
There could be a foreign object or torn piece of paper that's stuck further inside the printer mechanism path. Try using a flashlight and inspecting any access or clean out hatches. Sometimes something will be caught inside and cause the paper you feed in to crumple and create a jam. I watched a video on youtube giving different ideas on how to fix this problem. Fixing Paper Pick-Up Issues
Get a separate card reader. Then, create a folder on your desktop. Use the cardreader to open your videos and drag and drop them into the folder. From there, you can send them to a program on your computer that will allow you to view them. If you don't have one, you can download Quicktime for free from apple.com
the issue can be found when the paper feed rolls in the printer or the internal encoder strip are dirty.
Please try the following:
- open the backdoor of the printer
- also open the front door
- unplug the power chord without shutting down the printer
- now clean the paper feed rolls inside the printer with a soft rubber
- turn the rolls some times (10 tries or so) from down to up
- close the backdoor
- move the cartridge cart some times from one side to the other
- now you see a transparent strip over the metal bar
- this strip you can clean with cleaning alcohol
(be carefully! don't loose the strip or take too much alcohol)
- now let the printer dry over night (let it be open)
- next morning, close the front door
- press # and 6 at the same time and hold them
- keep them pressed and plug in the power chord
- keep them pressed until you see "semi nvm reset"
I did try all that, and it didnt work, on a 5050 acer built on a 3100 gabinet.
I think that the problem is that the cardreader chip is not well glued to the motherboard, that's why it gives you that error. If you try pressing certain points of the computer while booting, it miraculously stops giving that conflict error.
We should be payed back by Acer, as this is an project issue =P
