Re: CF Card Error
Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed). Just keep nudging it upward/straighter a "tiny bit at a time". Whatever you do, don't try to unbend it with one push/nudge, you won't be able to do it.
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's the best that you can get it, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

Digital Camera: How to Fix Compact Flash Memory Cards ErrorIt is not very typical for compact flash memory cards to give you an error. If you do receive an error, it most likely means that a pin within your CF card slot is bent, or your CF card has become corrupted. Unfortunately, if your CF card has become corrupted, you will need to reformat the memory card, which means that you may lose any pictures that were located on the card. Fixing Your Flash Memory Card
You will want to remove your CF card and the batteries. Take a look inside the CF card slot to see if there is a bent pin. If you find a bent pin, you can correct this problem using a very small and skinny flat screwdriver. Moving very slowly, use the screwdriver to bend the pin back into place. You do not want to use enough force to make the pin back in one shot. The pin does not have to be perfectly straight, but get it as close to straight as possible. Insert your CF card back into the slow very slowly. You should see the in align itself with the card. You can turn your digital camera on to verify that the compact flash memory card is now working.
Hi there follow the steps below.
1. Remove the card from the camera.
2. Make sure the card is unlocked. That lock key
present in side of the memory card.
3. fix it back in camera.
4. format the card from the camera. You can get the
option for format from camera settings pressing
after menu key.
5. After finish the format, restart the camera.
6. Now you can see that message has gone & its
start working. If you face the same problem then
the memory card is damaged or the camera card
reader is damaged. I hope you will not faced those
problems. Please let me know the result. If you
want to know more then ask me again .Thanks.
error 99 can most times be remedied by taking a standard pencil eraser and carefully cleaning the gold contacts at the back of the lens and the gold maching contacts in the lens opening of the camera... BE CAREFUL not to let eraser crumbs into your camera... keep it clean... reset the battery and give it a whirl.... did it solve the 99 issue? for the CF it refers to the cf card... here's what I've found on this: Canon reports that this error code may appear on your digital
camera’s LCD (liquid-crystal display) when there is an error reading
from or writing to the inserted CF (CompactFlash) card. This error code
occurs most often after a user has tried to eject a CF card before the
camera has finished writing data to the card.Solution: Canon
suggests that you first try to use a different CF card. If you do not
see the error message when you use the new CF card, the first card is
Before you take the next step, drag the files
from the CF card to a location on your hard drive to back up the files.
Next, you can use Windows’ ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for
errors. If you use a Mac, you can use Disk Utility (in
Applications\Utilities\) in OS X.
If ScanDisk or Disk Utility
fails to resolve the CF card problem, insert the CF card in your camera
again. Then format the CF card. On most Canon cameras, you can do this
by pressing the Menu button, selecting the Format tab, highlighting
Format, selecting Format, and choosing Yes. Make sure you have backed
up the data on the card before you do this. Formatting the card will
delete the images from the card. After you format the card in your
camera, use ScanDisk or Disk Utility to check the CF card again. If you
still encounter errors while using ScanDisk or Disk Utility, you should
discard the CF card because it is damaged.
If the error still
occurs after following the steps above, your camera may need repair.
Contact Canon’s technical support for further assistance.
did you delete all card files on your pc?
if so, camera will not function properly. Try formating the cf card on your computer and format it again inside JVC camera,
try inserting a normal cf card(should work) in order to find if you have a faulty cf card
hope it helps
Hey mus326, According to the manufacturer a cf error code means there is a problem with your cf card, and error code 99 is a general error code which is often caused by using a lens other than a Canon lens. When formatting the cf card make sure you are formatting the card in the camera, and not using a computer to format the card. If you still can't get the camera to work I would suggest you have it looked at by an authorized service center. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
The "E30" error code is displayed when reading/writing data on a CF card has failed.
Especially, the error code "E30" may appears when you tried to remove a CF card while the camera was processing data.
To clear the "E30" error, try performing the following procedure.
1. Try using another CF card.
If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera.
If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera.
2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors.
Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure.
Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions.
(If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.)
Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card.
If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card.
Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem.
3. Format the CF card with your camera
Try to format the CF card with your camera.
Please refer to the "Camera User Guide" for your camera for instructions on formatting CF cards. Also, please note that formatting a CF card will erase all data on the card.
Once the CF card is formatted, follow the procedure described in step 2 above and use your computer's ScanDisk on your computer to check the CF card for errors.
If a card error or card failure occurs when you are using computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card.
