Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Have err CF. Notice that at least one pin is bent where the memory card is inserted.


Answers :

Provided the pin does not touch another pin, you may be able to get a short length of fine brass tube from a model shop that will just slide over the pin. Gently push it all the way down and this should straighten the pin enough to enter the card.  If it is almost straight, you can tilt the tube just a touch.\012
If this does not work, it means having a new card socket fitted, which may be more than the camera is worth.
That is the problem. The card will not fit in and if you use force, you may damage the terminal beyond repair. You can carefully try to straighten the pin(s), but if you don't feel comfortable to do it yourself, take the camera to the shop.

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera. The guide shows a memory card that has ribbing and a write protection tab. The memory card that came with the camera does not. It is smooth all around except for one squared off corner. My problem is I cannot figure out, since the guide diagram and the actual card do not match, how the card is inserted into the camera? Please help! Thanks, Liz
