Err CF I have a Canon Rebel XT, how do i fix this error and what does it mean?

CF stands for compact flash which means you have an error with your memory card. Try removing and replacing your compact flash memory card. If that doesn't work you may need to format your memory card or replace it.

  • Toggle down from four times to Initialize

  • Toggle across again to the sub-menu

  • Toggle up from cancel to OK

  • Press center button to accept the OK choice

  • Screen changes and so press okay again

  • It should restart the camera

  • Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen

Toggle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function. If it is still not working dont worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is related to a software error message and not a hardware malfunction. If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

Thank you !!

I get an error message, E:91:01 blinking ,I can't find Reset bottom under LCD cover

It's flash error. Could be a dead flash fuse on the main board or bad flash board. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

Moultrie gamespyi40 error code 020000

I just spoke to the moultrie techy about the same error message I have with my i40, This is a false positive message, the i40 uses infra red instead of a flash; the self test is testing for flash and giving the false error. This was an oversight by Moultrie, no down-loadable patches are available to correct this at this time

Flash Error

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the flash up and pointed at you ( like you are going to take a picture of yourself) the pin is located on the right side close to the where the flash attaches to the camera. Yo should see a little pin sticking up. make sure that area is free of dust and /or debris. if it is not up then that is the problem. try to free it with out braking it or get it professionally repaired.

Guys - I just recevied a new H9 today. Was using it and decided to turn the flash off. Later on I wanted to turn it back on and I got the famous "flash settings cannot be changed" error message. I found the problem. I had turned on the "continuous shooting" option as I wanted to see how fast it would take photos continuously. When that option is on, you cannot use the flash so therefore you cannot change the flash settings. I put the camera back in "single-shot" mode and now the flash works fine. I hope this fixes your issue.

Thanks, Ken

Camera does not flash

problem is with the high voltage capacitor charge circuit. the internal battery voltage is stepped up to around 4 thouseand volts. this voltage is necessary to jump the electrode gap inside the xenon strobe tube which is the flash component
