CANON t2i 550D "Card write protected" for every sd card

Hello,
My Canon T2i comes up with the error "card write protected" for every sd card i put in. I checked all the cards its not the switch on the side. I ordered the replacement piece to change out the reader. Does anyone know how to replace or fix the issue? thanks

    Hi.

    My T2i is having the same problem.

    Canon wants 200 bucks to fix the problem :(

    It happened out of nothing.
  2. Yea they told me it was going to be the same cost.. The part only cost $40 but it looks to be complicated on how to put it in... This is the second t2i that has done this with me and I dont use cheap SD cards or anything. Not sure but i did some research it appears theres a metal piece that makes contact with the card allowing it to be written on or not.. I think thats whats faulty..

    this might help

  3. I have the same problem recently. Try to make better contact on this metal pice in sd reader. Nothing helps. Any suggestions?
