Canon Memory Card Slot

Canon Memory Card Slot

Went to reinsert camera (memory) card and put in upside down and pushed into housing. Realized it was wrong pulled out. Now when I reinsert card there is no longer tension on card and it just falls into housing? what has happened? Thx.

Hi Don,
Sorry you're memory card won't lock into place. It is highly likely that either the spring locking mechanism broke or the card slot has become separated from its mount within your Canon camera. It is kind of like trying to fit a specific cardboard piece into a place it doesn't belong. It doesn't take a lot of force for the delicate parts to become damaged.

How to fix Canon camera memory cards slot.

In order to get it fixed you;re going to have to send your camera off to a qualified Canon repair center. That is not something the average photographer can do.

Like many other businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, service center hours and availability for repairing Canon cameras have been reduced.

Thanks,
Bruce
