I have a less than one year old digital camera. While plugging in the cord to upload pictures, the piece of the camera where the plug goes fell back into the inside of the camera. When I showed it to the man at the store, he simply tried to sell me another camera. Can someone please tell me if this can be fixed? It still takes great pictures.
Just a suggestion about the memory card in your camera. If you have an SD card, and have a Walmart in your area, you can go to their photo center and put the images on your camera onto a CD. You can aslo have photos developed from the CD. If you don't know how to do it they will help you. I did that with photos from a family reunion.
But, I have a worse situation. My computer died, and I had hundreds of photos and trip videos stored in my computer, and I lost it all when my computer crashed. So, a word of advice. Back up all your photos onto a CD at home, that way if your computer crashes like mine did, you can always use the CD's to see them on another computer.
CD's are a lot cheaper than storing images on a sd card. Once you transfer the images to a cd, clear the memory of your camera, and keep using the same card. I have been using the same SD card for 5 years
now. No problems yet.
Sounds like your store guy is a dork/crook/thief; I hope hubbers come to your rescue here.
I would get a new camera.
Those little mini usb jacks are easily broken and the cost of skilled labor to replace it is more then most digitals cost these days.
What kind of card does your camera take?
You can just place the card into a card reader and never bother with the cord anyway.
Card readers and usb / memory card adapters are under $5 a piece.
I'll buy a card reader and try to upload the photos. The memory card is filled with photos that cannot be replaced (my mom passed away) and I want to get a CD made to preserve them. Do you recommend a particular brand?
You should also check the type and brand of memory card the camera uses. I'm not sure whether all card readers are able to read every type of memory card.
Any reasonably skilled technician should be able to fix the USB jack, hopefully at a reasonable price. It depends how much the camera cost in the first place. Call the camera manufacturer's rep in your area.
Hope that helps
Bri - your HD is probably fine or at least still recoverable - pick up a cheap external hdd case for around $20 bucks just pop it in there and plug that into another PC with some luck you will be able to access all your files.
Absolutely...I've found hard drives are the most reliable part of any computer, unless it's a laptop that gets a lot of thrashing about while it's running.
Most crashes are memory or operating system-related, sometimes motherboard and power supply as well, hard drives..not so much.
