SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: err 99 & err cF in my canon 350d camera

had the same problem before

found this guide online

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 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 it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
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 the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be 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 should be serviced.

Hi,

Please look inside your cardholder and you have seen a lot of small pins.
If one or more of the pins are bending or missing it gives an error on the camera display

SOURCE: 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.

CF card error replaced the card and tried to format but still reads cf card needs replaced


More than likely one or more of your CF pins in the camera are bent/broken. This is a very common problem. Most repair shops will charge between $150-$200 for this repair.
Hope this helps

Is there something wrong with the camera when it states cf err


you could have a bad CF card or it may need formatted .. or you could have a bent pin in the CF connector in your camera .. that happens a lot if the CF card is put in wrong or if its poorly designed (not much lead in taper to capture pins) ... look in the card slot where you plug in your CF card .. look to see if any pins are missing or bent ..

Canon 350d not turning on/screen not working/


Does the camera work properly with the CF card removed? If it does than the CF card is the problem. Try formatting the card with the camera or getting a new one.

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

Loading cf card


If you look inside the slot, are any of the pins bent? If so, you will want to get that serviced either by Canon or someone you trust. If it's under warranty (1 year) I suggest calling Canon.

Hope this helps!

Err CF


Observe the connector inside camera, using a flashlight. If there is a bent pin take the camera to service immediately. Don't turn it on any more as we did in one similar case - creating a short circuit that damaged the camera electronics and voided the warranty.

If no visible problems, remove battery and leave it out overnight.

CF pin


I'm afraid they break most of the time. You can try it though since the repair involves replacing the board that the connector is soldered to, $$$
