When the Compact Flash Card is inserted into the EOS camera a pin has bent over and a message reads "Error CF". Please advise cost to correct. Forgive me, but I am securing more than one quote...


Is it the compact flash card that has a pin bent? If so, I would replace the card with a new one. If the pin on the camera is damaged, then service at canonusa.com or 1-800-OK CANON is indicated.

It keeps coming up with "CF" when i turn the camera on,I have checked the covers and there all ok?


CF means Compact Flash
Compact Flash is a type of memory card.
Your camera is telling you that there is a problem with your CF card.
Either it is not installed, full or damaged.
There should be a door on side of the camera that provides access to the CF card so you can check if it's there.
You manual explains the details or you can stop by a camera store where someone would be able to help you.

No pictures


Look in the card slot with a flashlight to see if there are any bent / misaligned pins. If so, remove batteries and card and Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed). It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

Problem downloading pictures from memory card


Hi flashlal - I have a Cannon PowerShot S400 and I had a similar problem which uses a compact flash card. I could only view a few photos and it seemed like the rest were gone. I verified that my photos were on the compact flash card when I installed it in my pc and navigated to the compact flash card (You can do that by double clicking on the "My compute" icon). Then double click to the directory to where your memory card is located and navigate through the files. I noticed that my photos were there because the file size was in the hundreds of kilobytes (700KB and up), but the names of all the files were corrupt - they had symbols in the name. I figured at this point I had nothing to lose so I did a "check and repair disk" on the compact flash. To do this: take note of the directory that your memory card is located in (it should be something other than C:). Once you know where your memory card is located, you go to your start button on the PC, then to run. A pop-up window appears.The command to repair your disk is "chkdsk /f", however you have to tell it the directory of where your memory card is located. For me my memory card was in the E: drive so I had to type:
chkdsk e: /f

Once it finished running I went back to the my computer window and navigated to my compact flash folders. I looked at my photo names. I had to rename all my photos by putting the extenstion of "JPG" back as the file type. Once I did this, I could then view my pictures. The only thing I lost was the added information that my camera puts on it like the date, time, and camera setting used to take the picture. I was fine with not having that because it was more important for me to retrieve my pictures.

Good luck.
