T2i card reader
« on: May 22, 2016, 01:54:59 PM »
Hello
So the card reader on my t2i is definetly broken. The camera won't read any cards and one of the copper wires fell out of it. I do have an old rebel xs that won't turn on. My question is: does anyone know if the card reader fron the rebel xs will fit the t2i?
Thanks

That's over my head.. it sounds simplistic, but if all it was is the wires, then I'd say copper is copper.  If there is a board that came out.............

Wow it sucks if the only reason you can't use a camera is the card socket... Like Fyrblade, I don't know for sure either, but it does seem likely that they would carry basic things like the reader hardware over from model to model. It would be quite an enterprise to dismantle two cameras to switch parts, though! If you found that you could switch just the contact, then clearly that's got a good chance of working, but if you find it's a module that you can't take apart, then it's less likely to fit.
