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

Rebel XT error 05


\015 I have the error 05 problem. I've removed the hotshoe, played around with the plastic switch, tightened everything back in place. No fixa the problem.\015

Answers :

I had the same err 05 problem on my canon 350d. But there was no need to remove or open anything! If you have the camera in front of you looking at the lens, you can see a tiny black switch hidden under the flash. On the right side where the flash is attached to the body you can find a fine black piece of plastic sticking out of the camera body (smaller than 2mm. This switch can easily get stuck with some dust (or a grain of sand in my case)
Carefully clean it (with an ear stick) so it can go up down again as the flash goes open or is closed. (It somehow serves as a mechanical sensor)
This solved my error 05. Remember that this is just a general Flash error indication and there could be another problem triggering the warning.
\015\012I have been working with this very problem on my father's camera. I tracked the problem to a liquid of some sort had splashed the camera at some point and had gotten into the small switch that is near the base of the hinge that tells the camera that the mast is extended. The switch could also get gummed up with dust or other things as well. It does require a full dismantling of the camera to work around on the inside of the prism. The take apart is not an easy task to complete and there are quite a few screws that need to be put back in the same place. The camera now properly extends the mass and registers it without the annoying "err 05" warning. Not suggesting this repair to anyone that isn't extremely familiar with dealing with delicate cabling that are usual found inside devices such as these. With all the suggestions here the usual disclaimer if you break it more when working on it you have no one to blame but yourself.

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨.

Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, you may elect professional repair (likely more than you'd be willing to pay), or you might want to try the following.\015\012\015\012Re ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
