Take out the cf and see if your camera turns back on without it. If it does, then you have a bad card...replace it.

I have a problem with my card not snapping back into the camera. It won't snap back in place. I took it out went to WalGreens and when put it back in it just wouldn't snap back in. ?


Sometimes I have difficulty snapping a card in it's place. It feels like my fingernails aren't long enough. Try using something to be sure you are pressing it far enough in.

I have a Canon EOS 350D, Compact Flash card freezes my computer


Instead of connecting via the camera, just use a USB card reader and put the CF card in that.

Compact Flash card


Were you able to print the pictures from the card? Don't be mad.. have to ask: did you put the card in right? Those little contacts need to make contact. Look into the card slot with a flashlight and see if any of the little contact fingers got bent in the process. That would cause the problem... and require sending the camera back for a card socket. Also there are different cards... you're using the right kind right? (just had to ask THAT one too.)

Lastly, you didn't take the cark out while the camera was writing as picture to it? Let me know. I hopw some of this helps to help you solve your problem.

The P-channel MOSFET switching the CF power is dead. It is on the little board directly above the battery compartment. SOT23 package, the marking is 338 or something like that. Replace it and it will work.

Compact Flash Problems


Dynamite,
have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...

Fuji Finepix F31fd - Write error; then power problem


As it was a write error, it could be that your card is corrupted. What you could do is to backup all of the images from the card to your computer, then re-format the card in the camera, so at least all your images are safe. Then, if the problem occurs again, contact Fuji.

CF Error


I had the same symptoms. I took it to an authorized Canon repair shop. For $150, they resoldered connections on my 'power supply board'.  No idea why the solder gave out. It's working great now.

CF Excessive Power


Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.
