I had the same problem; I could insert the card but it wouldn't read. I Got a CF error message. I was going to get it fixed then I realised that the bent pin was touching the adjacent pin. So I intentionally broke-off the damaged pin... an now it works perfectly! Many of the pins on CF cards don't appear to function.

Obviously, only do this if the pins are touching and you can't bent the pin back straight. You could make thing worse by rummaging aroung the CF slot, but as I was going to send it away anyway, at some considerable cost, I had nothing to lose.

I would recommend taking it to a camera repair shop. They have specialized tools that won't damage the camera as those pins are so small and fragile. If you must do it yourself, try using a jewelers screwdriver to gently push the pin back into proper alignment.

SOURCE: Camera launcher exe has stopped working my

Hi,

I have two suggestions for this issue.

First, check the properties of the shortcut icon that you are using to launch the app.

It should be:

"C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\Ka-50\bin\stable\Launcher.exe" --console

Start in:

"C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\Ka-50"
In case this does not resolve the issue, un-install the program.

Then when you reinstall, please ensure that you install it in the non-default directory.

If you require any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

My canon xt rebel says err cf and wont do anything i bought a new one an the same thing whats wrong


One of more of the CF pins inside your camera are bent over. This is very common. The solution is to remove the main circuit and replace the bent/broken pins. Most repair shops will charge between $150-$200 to fix this.

My Canon EOS Rebel XT doesn't recognize the CF card. It recognized it earlier, but I removed it and now it won't see it. I also tried a different CF card and it didn't work.


LOOK INSIDE THE CAMERA Card SLOT AND SEE IF ALL THE PINS ARE STRAIGHT You may have bent the pins which is easy to do. If they are bent it will be a serviceman job to replace the module

Canon EOS/Rebel XT won't power up


Joe, this happened to me, just tonight... I got a new CF card and stuck it in, turned it on and one CF card flash. Completely dead from there. I found one of the CF card pins bent over, shorted out the socket and blew the mainboard fuse. I took the camera apart, found the fuse (labelled K) about under the set button area) I bridged the fuse with a bit of solder, straightened out the pin in the socket, put it all back together and it's working fine. The fuse is under the right side shield cover, it's labelled with a letter K. There is another fuse on the power inlet board (below the shutter button) and it's labelled 'P'...

I have images on my card, but my Canon EOS Rebel 300D says "no images in the camera or card folder" how can I get them to download. Will they download at a Wal-Mart card reader?


look very carefully at the pins inside the socket.. you might have a bent or broken pin making the camera unable to read the card. Also, if the images on your card are not Jpg or CanonRAW, the camera won't recognize them.

Bent memory card reader pin on canon 350d


I've uploaded an expanded schematic of the 350D to this site which should hopefully appear in the next day or two - it gives you an idea of how to disassemble without being explicit instructions.
Hopefully this will help.

CF Card is not being read, Canon Digital 350D EOS Problem


It does not sound good. You might want to get a flashlight or similar and look into the memory card slot to check the connector pins in the camera. They may be bent or damaged.
