Question about Canon Cameras
Canon 60D SLR
Fails to power up with LCD only momentarily either saying 100 ISO or the usual photography details. LCD on top also occasionally reads ERR CF - but we have tried with different Complact Fashcards.
Back screen does not come on other than momentarily and will not take photos. Have had plugged into mains with same result.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Nope, this is not card anymore.
As you know CF is card failure, sometimes this cause to start error 99 , that is lens error , even if there is no problem with the lens.
This happens because the built in software in the camera can get messed up after an error CF.
You fix the problem calling Canon, they will guide through upgrading the firmware in your camera.
First ensure that you are using the camera menu and command to format the new card, and that new cards are properly inserted into the machine.
Call Canon support to get a firmware upgrade.

Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn off camera and use a non conducting "stick" ie cocktail or toothpick. Not sure for a Canon but a colleague paid £40 for a new pin assembly for a Nikon with similar problem.
Hope this helps.
