The memory card is the storage medium. You need to have the camera repaired. Do not attempt this repair yourself. You cannot take pictures without a memory card.

You need to send your camera in to Canon for repair. Sorry!

I having canon eos after i remove the memory card it says error cf or it says busy please help me


Hello

The issues you are running into are indicative of two possible issues.

First, the memory card may simply be bad. But before you purchase or try another memory card, you need to look for the second possible issue. The second issue, which is typcially more common, is that inside the card slot on the camera, there are pins, it is possible that one or more of these pins has become bent or damaged. If you look inside you can usually see a pin or pins out of alignment or bent over. If that is the case, the camera will need to go in for service.

When the Compact Flash Card is inserted into the EOS camera a pin has bent over and a message reads "Error CF". Please advise cost to correct. Forgive me, but I am securing more than one quote...


Is it the compact flash card that has a pin bent? If so, I would replace the card with a new one. If the pin on the camera is damaged, then service at canonusa.com or 1-800-OK CANON is indicated.

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

When i start camera power on it flashes Err CF will not allow me to take pictures


Assuming you have inserted a CF memory card; try a different one. This is typical of a defective memory card. Also, look into the slot to verify no bent pins(they are tiny!)

I do not know if this is applicable on the XT, but some Canon's have a setting to block/allow taking pictures without a memory card inserted. If it does, set it to allow to verify the camera is operable otherwise.

Bent memory card reader pin on canon 350d


I found these a while back for the 300D - won't be that much different. You could use these as a basis for having a go for yourself - you shouldn't have to disassemble too much to just get to the CF pins.

Canon EOS 350D CF memory card won't go into slot


It sounds like you have some bent pins in the card slot. Take it to a reputable camera repair and they can look and tell you for sure.

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.

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.

Canon camera has error cf


Of course you have tried to format the CF card ? That can solve the problem.

If you get err 99 when trying to format the memory card, the problem is probably in CF (Compact Flash) connector. One common reason is bent pin. You can see it when looking into card slot.

Another possibility could be the CF connector terminations inside the camera. I repaired one EOS 350D where solder joint in one of the pins (23rd) was broken. And that looked like manufacturing failure in the printed circuit board (see the picture). The solder pad for that pin was far too small. There can be also other such cases in the market. The disassembly of the camera is rather difficult but if you have some experience on that kind of work, it is worth trying when you have no other option. Some guidance for disassembly can be found for example here: http://astro.ai-software.com/articles/mod_350D/mod_350D.html

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.
