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

My cannon rebel xt says error cf how do i fix it. was taking pictures took mycf card out to veiw on computer when i put it back it says err cf. tried different cf cards and it says the same thing. help

Answers :

Step 1 Try to use a different CF card
Step 2. Remove the card and visually check the Compact Flash compartment on the camera.Use a flashlight and check the inside contacts (2 rows of thin golden pins). All the pins should be aligned & straight, and the Compact Flash compartment should be clean with no dirt or foreign objects inside.If you nottice some junk (stuff) in there you can try to remove it ( pull out the battery first) blowing some air (not canned air, only manual blower !) or pickup all the junk from inside with a toothpick or plastic tweezers.If you are NOT comfortable doing this, or have no experience in dealing \015\012with the very sensitive electronic parts, DO NOT TOUCH anything, just \015\012visually chect the inside and DO NOT try to remove the dirt (junk, stuff) mechanically, use just air.Use common sense and do it on your own risk ! You can damage your camera very easy ! If the pins are bended/broken/missing you have to send the camera out for service.
Step 3.Reset the system removing BOTH batteries !.You have to remove the small 3 volt memory backup cell to. It is a small round button cell battery located inside the
battery\015\012 compartment.Leave the camera for 20-30 minutes with no battery, you can press the shutter button for few seconds to be sure all the power was consumed from the capacitors.Put back the battery , restart and see if it works.
If the error still occurs after following the steps above, your camera \015\012may need repair. Contact Canon’s technical support for further \015\012assistance.Due the fact is a 5 years+ camera you have to put in balance if is a good deal to send it out for repairs or to replace it.Good Luck.Let me know if worked.
Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when you removed the card. You need to download the pics off the card and then format it in the camera to get it to work properly.

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture
