    I accidentally broke one of the prong for the male socket where you
    insert CF card of my coolpix 5700 camera. I did take few pictures after
    that and I do not see any problems in the pictures I took so far. Should
    I get it repaired? My camera is under warranty but I am just afraid if I
    send it in for repair they might mess up some thing else in the process.

    Let me get this straight. You a user of a 5700 broke something on it. Yet
    you fret those whose job it is to fix it will break it further? The more
    pertinent question is your misuse of the camera covered under warranty,
    IMO. I've got nearly 10, 000 images on my 990 and 1,000 on my 5700 and
    can't see how you could have done this taking any care inserting the card.

  3. I accidentally broke one of the prong for the male socket where you
    I completely understand your fear of them screwing something else up, as
    that is usually what happens, they never take care of your camera as if it
    were their own, but as if it was a golf ball.

    However, however the hell someone can break off a prong inside the camera
    where the CF card goes is going to cause more damage to the camera in the
    future then they could ever do in the few days they have it.

  4. IMO. I've got nearly 10, 000 images on my 990 and 1,000 on my 5700 and
    I agree. Best to leave the camera as it is and learn a lesson never to
    stick screwdrivers or any other objects in the CF card slot.

    I accidentally broke one of the prong for the male socket where you
    I would actually be in favor of a federal law that would prohibit companies from
    making repairs under these conditions, otherwise people will never be punished
    for doing this and will never learn a lesson. I think a minimum mandatory 6
    month jail sentence would not be out of line either.
