it is not the camra but the card . Was down loading photos on to computer , started ok

Put card in camra and showed CARD ERROR. Been told could be faulty card .
Sorry, didn't see the part about 2 batteries and chargers. I've had the V603, it broke, and I took it apart. It is a very complex little camera and I don't recommend opening it up past taking off the front cover and rear cover.
The CCD is just behind the lens assembly, and the motherboard is behind the aluminum cover for the slot for the SD card. Most components on the motherboard are surface mounted and trouble shooting or soldering is tough! You might try cleaning the battery contacts using a pencil eraser (just go through the battery compartment opening). Even with new batteries, if the battery contacts on the camera have any corrosion, the camera won't be getting full voltage.
If you take the front or rear covers off, you might see if you can see any loose connections by doing that. Other than that, probably a lost cause. Sell your camera on E-bay as one that needs repairs. There are many people who would buy it to use the LCD from it to repair their 603V. If you like this model, I'd look for a cheap replacement on e-bay.
Sounds like a corrupt format on the Compact Flash card.
Take the bettery out, then the CF card. Put the battery back in but don't put the CF card in. Switch the camera on and see if you get a different error on the screen. If you get something like 'Missing card' then the camera is OK.
You will probably have to plug the CF card into a PC/Mac via a card reader to see if you can reformat it. If it doesn't work I'm afraid it will need replacing.
Try resetting your camera and see if that helps. Sometimes it does.
In REC mode press menu
go to setup tab
go up to reset
press right arrow & highlight reset
If that doesn't work you are probably going to have to send it in.
