Customer Question
Hi there "Pearl", I...

Hi there "Pearl", I Have a "card error" coming up consistently. Have used new cards and old cards but same message. It was working one minute and not the next. Thoughts?

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Camera Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

OK. Great

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else the Camera Technician should be aware of?

Yes, I have to manually eject the card as it appears the spring that ejects might be broken or compromised.
