    Wow, I accidentally dropped my camera in the bat ray tank at the Monterey Aquarium for just a few seconds several years ago, and I've never been able to get the photos to read. I never thought of taking the cartridge apart and cleaning it. I'll give that a shot.

    I simply split the card with an XActo knife and cleaned the circuit board with some isopropyl alcohol to make sure there was no salt bridging the pins. Once you've cleaned it, put it back in the carrier and put the two halves together. Then simply insert the card in the SD slot of the reader. That's all I did.

    Good luck.

    Wow, it's amazing how small a 256Mb card's board actually is.

    There is a page set up for cameras that have been lost and found It's to help reunite cameras with their owners. You could get in contact with the people who took these photos years ago.

    Wow, is that really the whole circuit board? There aren't even any ICs on there.
  • DoYouKnowUs 4y

    Yep, that's it. I believe the chip is on the back-side embedded in a rubber/tar coating. The double row of dots are through-hole connections to the other side. I was pretty surprised too how little there actually was inside the plastic carrier.
