Question about Nikon D1X Digital Camera

1 Answer

"Card" indicator flashes

The "card" indicator and the "rem" indicator are flashing and the rem indicates zero, even wih a new CF card. Sometimes the camera won't shut off when switched to the off position, the illumination goes out, but all the information is still displayed on the control panel.

    I have the same problem and when i turn it on I have to take the battery our in order for it to read my cards.

    I've also got the same problem as described previously. I have tried using three different CF cards; (1x 1GB Microdrive card, 2x 32MB CF cards) - still the same. This problem is really beginning to bug me! Does anyone have a possible solution...?

Hi folks got.a cannon eos 350d the problem I have is the cf button is continually flashing is this normal or have I a problem the cf.card is brand new


The CF access lamp should flash every time you made a picture. As long as it is flashing it is saving the picture you shot. This is what the manual says about the flashing:

If it darts flashing, when inserted, and to does not stop flashing, perhaps it is indicating, it needs a format.
I lost contact with CF cards, since my new camera's do have SDxx cards, bet perhaps the CF card you inserted, is not compatible with your camera. I don't know if the new high capacity CF cards can be accessed by your camera. Thy a 2 Gbyte. If it works, perhaps that is the max you can use?

I have a Cannon EOS Digital Rebel Xti. When I try taking a picture, I keep getting an error message indicating there is a problem with the CF Card. I have replaced the card several time but keep getting...


What you require is to format the Compact Flash Card. The CF card should be formatted when new and after every download. Format the card in the camera it is going to be used it. Constantly deleting pictures on the memory card will cause major corruptions and total failure. Formatting cleans the memory and allows the camera to communicate properly with the CF Card.
I going to give you several diagrams on where to go in your camera to format. these diagrams are screen shots right from your manual.

I lost my manual ...red light is flashing near compact flash card opening


PDF here.

If that little red light (just below the 4-way control) is flashing it is indication the camera is attempting to communicate with the CF. if it never quits, most commonly the culprit is an unformatted, or corrupt/damaged CF card. Replace the card, and reformat in the camera.

any images on old CF MAY be recoverable with a card reader on your PC, but the camera will not read them. Reformatting will destroy the existing images.

Same memory card been using but now indicates no memory card when i turn on


Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see the following:

HELP 350d still not turning on/screen not working


Hmmm... doesn't sound too good does it? Have you tried another CF card? I know you said it doesn't work even without a card but...

Also one last thing to try is to tkae out both batteries, the main one and the slim watch style backup battery that sits right next to the main one under the cover labelled CR2016. Leave them both out for an hour and see what happens. NOTE this will probably reset your camera to factory defaults and may reset the photo numbering counter back to zero. Worth a try?

Canon 350d not turning on/screen not working/


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.

Can't download pictures to pc


What software are you using to access the pictures. If you don't have the "canon" drivers installed it just won't do it.. You can however go get a card reader for the Flash card and that saves on the camera batteries..

Nikon D70, displaying error code 'CHA' when memory card inserted. Unable to format or use memory card. Have tried new memory card, still same problem.


CHA errors indicate a communication issue with the CF card. Your card could be going bad, you could have a broken pin, or any number of other problems.

I'm running into this same problem now. If anyone has a good step-by-step to troubleshoot which of the dozen things this error could be, I'd appreciate it.

For myself, I'm planning to start by trying a new CF card.
