never mind I got it out, but now I see that my viewfinder is completley cracked. I must have hit the camera, but the camera itself still works its just that the viewfinder is broken(cracked) looks like just the outside piece focusing screen and everyting else is fine. Does anyone know if the warranty covers this? And does anyone have suggestions on what to do to repair this? For now everything else seems to work.

There is a fingernail slot on the front of the card just above the label. If the card locks have been disengaged, you should be able to pull the card out with this.

Thank you

If you bought the camera from Ritz and got their you break it we replace warranty, you're covered. If you only have the Pentax warranty, probably not.

Thank you

I got it at B and H and I bought a sagemax warranty. If the warranty doesn't cover it anyone know where to get it fixed? I live in New Jersey.

I am curious as to how you have apparently hit the camera so hard that it jams the card and cracks the viewfinder, without you even knowing it

Goodluck with the replacement/repair. Hope you're not away from it for yoo long

You'll send it to Pentax Colorado just like it was a warranty repair. If they deem the issue not to be covered by the warranty, they will contact you with how much it will cost to have it fixed.

If you paid by credit card, you might look to see if the credit card has a Purchase Protection Plan. I've never personally used it, but people have posted that their credit card offered this service and they used it in similar circumstances. I think American Express is one that offers this.

Thank you
Russell

I'm kinda thinking that it's a spammer, although I really don't know

I really don't know weather to report hm or not
If anyone agrees with me, that it might be spam please click on the red flag on the bottom left side of his post, and report it.

I'm deleting them just as fast as you guys find them and report them. I think this is the sixth one this morning.

I had the same problem with that same card ...tried two of them and both stick. Work fine in other camera's so now use it in my Panasonic P&S.

To solve your problem, if your finger nails can't get a purchase on the card, use a pair of tweezers ..just pull it out.

Mike.

PS: BTW was this with a K10D as in my case or a different model?

I just bought 2 new Kingston 4GB SDHC and they both are tight fits in the K10D but the slide in/out just fine in the K20D.
