Canon PowerShot G1 to G6 series Repair Service - Damaged CF Pins
The most common symptom of bent pins is inability or difficulty in installing the Compact Flash memory card. In most cases, with proper lighting, you can remove the card and see into the slot. Every pin should be evenly spaced from its neighbors. If any are uneven, or if you can see the side of a pin, it is bent.
The camera should still turn on, and if it does not turn on with a fresh battery, it has further damage. We can still fix it, but not under this repair listing. Sometimes we can fix cameras after attempted at-home repairs, but it costs more and there may be permanent damage. You could contact us directly for more information.
If damaged pins sound like your problem, LeZot Camera Repair will restore your camera to its original condition. You spent your hard-earned money on that camera, so why just throw it away? If it has served you well until now, return the favor and get your Canon PowerShot G-series camera the LeZot treatment.
This service covers repair or replacement of any bent, broken, damaged or missing pins in the Compact Flash (CF) slot. Applies to the following models:
Please note that cameras showing signs of tampering will incur additional charges.
This service carries our standard 90-day limited warranty (terms can be found on our 'Policies' page), and also includes a general cleaning of the camera.
Once we receive your camera, we will repair and return it within 7-10 business days (Our working days are Tuesday-Saturday, closed Sundays and Mondays.)
If you own the PowerShot G6, please consider our repair estimation service, as the G6 is not covered by this repair service.

to have it back in my hands and functioning beautifully. I also want
to thank you for the photo of the damaged card you included. My card
did indeed have a gouge in it and little bits of plastic covering a
couple of the holes. I bought a new 4 gig card and will probably never
remove it from the camera.
