Question about Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera
My camera keeps saying "no card" with my typical card that has always worked and a brand new one. When I try to format my new card it says no card.
Using a bright light, check to see that there are no broken card pieces in the card slot so that the card makes proper contact with all the contacts and switches. Also check to make sure non of the contact pins are bent or turned sideways etc. Usually when the card is not detected the card detect switch is damaged and does not close when the card is inserted. The detect switch is usually on one side of the slot. Check this with the bright light. If you have something like a dental pick and you can see damage to the switch you can insert the pick and try to reform it. MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE THE BATTERY FIRST!

There are a few possibilities, A the pins where the card inserts into the camera are damaged, or you have 2 dud cards borrow another you know works. And also insert the card that does not work and connect camera to computer and see if it connects. If nothing works its back to Mrs Canon for repairs.

Normally it can be an assortment of things:
Dirty contacts between lens and mount causing a glitch in the communication.
Use of outdated or obsolete chipsets on certain lenses
Jam in the motor
I/O error on the cf card
Most of the time its a bad contact with the lens and the mount. Try cleaning it with a q-tip to wipe residue off the metal contacts.
Hope that helps.........

Which mode are you on? When you zoom in, the maximum aperture size decreases to f/5.6 in the kit lens. Sometimes it may be too dark or shutter speed too slow so the camera doesn't shoot. If you're in "P" (program) mode, full auto mode or any of the Basic Modes, the aperture/shutter is auto. In other modes (Av, M, etc) you can turn the dial on the top of the camera to adjust shutter speed to a lower number.

Is this happening when you try to focus on something pretty close to the camera?
If that's the problem, it's because the lens has a focus distance 0.25m/0.8ft meaning the subject has to be this far away for the lens to be able to focus. You could buy a new lens with smaller focus distance if this is a big problem to you.

Check if the Card is unlocked.
Remove the card, Check for a latch ( button ) on left or right side and change the direction to opposite.
Reinsert the card and it should work,
Few card need to be formatted first time when you you.
