    I have a canon eos 300d . Turning it on produces an err 02. I have tried a different memory card, and also reformatting the original card. Battery has been charged, but still getting the same error.

    Can anyone advise please.

    TIA

    When I put the CF card in my cannon rebel, it does not work it gives me err 02 code. When the card is out it turns on. Can someone help me please

    My canon rebel shows the err02 when I turn it on and the CF card is in it.  Also, it won't let  me reformat or even get to the menu.  I tried reformatting the card on my computer and putting it back in, but that didn't help.  When I take the memory card out of the camera and turn it back on, all the functions work and I can access the menu.  I tried the CF Card in another camera and it works fine, so now I know that something is wrong with the CF slot.

I've had the same problem for 3 years. First, take the cf card and turn the camera on. Does it come on? Can you use the menu, etc.? If so, turn it off and look inside the cf slot with a magnifying glass. There should be 2 rows of pins (50 altogether) and see if any are bent. That may be your problem. Mine is actually a bit worse. There are apparently only 48 pins in mine. Two opposite (kittycorner) pins are missing. Don't know where they went. But there you are.

One of the middle pins was bent on mine. When I tried to straighten it, it broke off. The camera is working now and the pictures look fine. I may have had the good fortune of a pin that is not used breaking.

Err 02


Have you tried reformatting the card (full, not quick, format) in your computer? This will require you to have a CF reader, but they're so handy you should have one anyway.

Err 99 in canon 350D


To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Canon eos digital camera, display err 2 in window. will not take any photos. The battery is fully charged and istalled correctly.


ERR 02 usually indicates a problem with reading the memory card. Remove and reinsert the memory card (check the pins in the camera with a strong light to make sure no pins are bent). If that doesn't work, try another memory card. If it still doesn't work, the camera may need to be serviced.
