Cf card error

The file system on your CT memory card can be corrupted. It only takes one second, when you not watch the access light on the back of the camera, when you pull out the memory card. If the card does not contain any pictures, just try to format it. If it won't work in the camera, try to format it in an external card reader connected to a computer with an older operating system then Vista. Give it a format FAT 12 or 16 for the smaller CF cards (less than 2 GB) and FAT32 for the bigger ones.
If this works, don't forget to let the camera do a format to, just to make sure the card can be used by your camera.

When isert flash card i get err2 sign

According with the manual:

Err 02: There is a problem with the CF card. Do one of the following: Remove and reload the CF card, use another CF card, or format the CF card.

Try formatting the CF card in the camera, if that doesn't work use a card reader to format it in your PC then format it again in the camera. If that doesn't work try a different CF card.

Keep us updated.

My EOS rebel says "there is a problem with the CF card. Replace the CF card.

Look closely at the cf pins inside of the camera. They are usually the problem when you get that error message. I am a Canon repair tech and have fixed three today alone this is a common thing. Look closely at the cf card eject button as well. Sometimes that comes loose and then the card will not seat properly! If you want I can take some pics of what they should look like with the mainboard out of the camera so you can get a idea of what they look like when they are bent and not bent and post them.

I installed a new cf card in my canon camera. It says "card not formatted" and when I try to format it, it says "cannot format. change CF card". what gives?

Check if you're using a compatible CF card in the Camera. You can look in the user manual of the Camera to check for the compatible CF cards.
If the CF card that you're using is compatible but not working in the Camera then try using the card in other Camera to determine if the issue is with the card.

If the Card works normally in other Camera or device then reset the Camera to the original factory settings.
Even after resetting the Camera to the original factory settings if the CF card doesn't work in the Camera then you may try using any other compatible CF card to determine if the issue is with the CF card reader in the Camera.

Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. Thinking the camera is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of different CF cards first.

The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.

Best regards - Michael

CF Card Err

Sounds like you have bent pins on your CF reader. Open the door, take out the card and look inside. Is there damage to the pins?

You maybe able to fix it with pincers and a needle just align the pin or pins that are out of place, i did this and it worked for me and now my camera is working fine. and for free.

Good luck

Switch on - Switch off! Coolpix3100

Coolpix uses SD cards, not CF. Anyway, try using the camera without memory card, only with internal memory. If it works, then replace memory card.
