We repair a huge number of cameras week to week, from the more simple compact cameras to the higher end DSLR models. Across the whole range of cameras that are on the market, certain issues repeat themselves regardless of the camera, with a damaged card reader being one of those more common problems.
The damaged Canon 700D featured above was brought to our repair centre as the customer has inserted the memory card to wrong way around, and damaged several pins for the card reader. Our technicians performed diagnostics on the camera and determined quickly that the broken Canon card reader would need to be replaced.
Thankfully, our technicians were able to perform the Canon 700D card reader replacement in a few hours, with a full 12 month warranty.
