SD card is stuck in my XT1 - no movement

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi all, 

 

I hope someone out there can help me figure out how to get my SD card out of my XT1??? First, I'm not new, I've been using 2 XT1's for over a year. Yesterday I shot a big job for an Interior Designer and this morning when I went to copy the images the SD card will not come out. When I push on the card to eject it, there is NO movement, normally it pushes down a little then pops up. This card is stuck, no movement. I'm very nervous as I have a very important job on that card and can't risk looking any images.

 

Please can anyone advise me how to get the card out without damaging the card?

 

Thank you!

Can't really suggest how to remove the card but you can use the Fujifilm PC Autosave software to wirelessly copy your images to a computer (http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/pc_autosave/mac/) or (http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/pc_autosave/win/). At least you'll have saved your work and can then sort out the camera later.

it is a known problem, cut a very thin piece of hard plastic or a piece from a playing card ( waxed) and then slide on the side of the contacts ( which are probably causing the card to catch), you should be able to remove it.

 

anyway there are other threads on the subject, as usual, things hardly ever happen to one person alone.

Thank you for your reply, I tried the playing card suggestion, but did not have any luck. I actually figured out you can use some tweezers made by Revlon sold at Target for $5 to grab the card out. Worked perfect and it did not damage my camera or SD Card. Phew.....

Thank you so much I tried this option, but I shot RAW and JPEG and the communication was so slow it kept dropping. I think it would be fine if I was only transferring a few images, but I had 274 images.

To save the images you might try connecting the camera to your computer via a USB cable and transferring the pictures that way!

 

NOT using the remote app I should add, if accomplished it will leave you free to give the obstinate SD card some wellie.

      I am planning to purchase the new FujiFilm XT-4 when it is available in NL. 
      With the launch of the XT-4 FujiFilm removed the supported SD Cards from the compatibility section on their website.
      The link is still present on the XT-3 specifications website but the link is not working anymore

      Is there any way I can verify with FujiFilm which 128 GB SDXC V90 UHS-II are supported or recommended by them?

      hi guy, I'm using X-h1, X-t1 with few lenses. I wonder should I buy an X100T or an extra 23mm f/2.0 lens. I'm gonna do street photography and sometime travel?
       
      Thank you guys.

      I have an XT1 and absolutely love it. I'm thinking of trading it in for an XT3 - but am wondering if it is worth it. I'm not really interested in movies, and most of the extra you get with the XT3 seems to be in the video area. Also, is the XT3 heavier than the XT1? I really like the light weight of the XT1.

      Recently my XT1 stopped working, when I have a lens attached the lcd screen flashes for 20 seconds and then I get the message "Lens Control Error" on screen and am unable to take any shots. I've tried a few things already (listed at the bottom) and none of these steps have resolved the issue. I've tested it with my 16mm lens and another lens and the error seems to occur with any lens, so I'm sure it's an issue with the body and not the lens. When I remove the lens the error doesn't occur.
      I'm currently travelling in Colombia and according to their designated service centre here (who I'm not entirely sure I trust) I need to have the camera's main board ("tarjeta principal") replaced, for which they're quoting around $150. I just want to be sure that this really is the issue before I shell out the cash to have it fixed.
      Has anyone had this error fixed by Fuji and if so, do you know what element needed to be fixed? 
      Thanks in advance.

      Steps I've already tried:
      Turned the camera on and off; removed the battery for a few mins and replaced; updated the firmware for both the camera and lens; reset the camera to factory default settings; taken the lens on and off; cleaned the copper contact points both on the lens and the body.

      Hello Guys

      My name is Amir, I'm a Photographer from Iran.
      I recently Joined this Community because I need your advice or opinion on a situation here.

      I'm a film shooter and recently I decided to buy a Fujifilm X Camera. I mainly do Landscapes, along with some portraits and street.

      I'm on a tight budget (roughly 1100$) and new Fuji products are very expensive here! (more than their normal price worldwide!) so I'm not in a good financial position to buy a Fuji X-T2...
      But recently I came across two options here. one is a brand new Fujifilm X-T1+18-55 kit lens around 800$ price tag (special offer) and the other one is a used X-T20+18-55 kit lens (roughly 2000 shots) around 950$.

      Depending on my needs, which one do you suggest? I'm planning to go with it for a minimum of 3 years so its a crucial choice for me here and also the weather sealing is a real deal breaker for me.

      what do you suggest? what should I do?

    • I switched from X-T2 to X-H1 when X-H1 was launched. No regret at all because I only use non stabilized lenses, 16-55 and 90. Less blured pictures with the 90 f2.
    • Do I need a website to add images to the gallery ?? Because it ask URL address 
    • I'm coming from canon and get the xpro 3 two weeks now I don't know the difference between xpro 2  But I'm very surprised the image quality deliver from the xpro 3. What I saw the images from xpro 2 they are almost ,maybe the same quality as the xpro3  If I owned the xpro 2 or xt 3 I will probably not upgrade to xpro 3  If you are going for a new camera just one camera I will definitely go for the xpro 3

    • Do any of the newer Fuji film X cameras come with a paper owners manual in the box?  If not,  does anyone know when they last did enclose a written manual. I have difficulty reading on the computer screen and have manuals for my old Xe-1 and Xt-1.   I just find it much easier to read the paper manuals and it's easier for me to go back and forth from different pages to learn something.   Thanks.
