Camera repair

sharon620September 4, 2007

Hello Everyone,

I have a new Canon Rebel XTi. I cannot get a card into the slot. All of a sudden this happened. And when I look thru the view finder ( OH MY G) is looks like there is little scratches all over. I used my air cleaner and it got some of it off. But what a mess! I cannot figure out what happened to it.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do myself?

Otherwise I will have to take it to be repaired. And NO card will go in there. I have tried other cards and they won't go in either.

Thank you

Sharon, did one of the pins get bent?

As far as the view finder, maybe dust? but the XTi has a "dust buster" maybe it is just on the view screen and not the sensor. Take to the camera shop, they shouldn't charge to have a glance at it. Is your camera still under warranty? Should be an easy fix then.

I received your email. The best advice I can give is contact Canon directly. Most likely, you have to send it in. Be sure to to ask about a 'loan' camera to have while they look at yours. I don't know if I could make it through the day without a camera.

Check here, too:

Lots of people smarter than me there.

Hope I was some help
