    I did something really stupid. I am a teacher and for our graduation, we show a slideshow of the children using photos taken throughout the year. The school provides the memory card but I use my own camera as I prefer to print the photos out on my printer. Tonight I accidentally put the memory card in the wrong slot and now it is stuck in the printer. Any suggestions on how to get it out? I can buy a new memory card but I can't replace the photos on it. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Unplug it and try to get it out with tweezers. It helps to move it closer to eye level.

    I can't even see the memory card, it's like it fell into the printer itself and not just the card slot. Ran to CVS and bought a replacement card and will have to start retaking photos to use for graduation.
