Try reformatting the card using the menu options on your camera. YOu should still be able to access those options

I had the same problem. I used compressed air to blow out the card and the slot, and it now works.

Using a flashlight, check thru the CF memory card reader if there are some pins that are bent, missing (broken) or damaged.

If this is the case, it is necessary to have serviced the camera to replace such pins, and inspectd for the broken pin pieces that may be stuck inside the camera, and cause later a short circuit.

If all the pins are in good conditions, may be the internal memory reader circuitry is failing, which requires also a professional camera repair service.


If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to send it back to make valid the warranty.

If not, then you have the options of pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you are willing to open it and perform the steps to repair it.

If so, You will need tools to do it, which includes the usage of a soldering iron, microscope (since requires micro soldering), and buy the CF memory card reader connector..

Best regards,

SOURCE: after inserting cf card into canon s30 i get cf

Believe it or not, the camera's internal clock battery is worn down, causing this problem. Unfortunately, it's buried deep inside your camera, and is difficult to replace. But happily Canon will fix this problem for free. Please see this link.

Look inside the card compartment to check for broken or bent pins. Have you tried formatting the card in the camera? This will erase it so download any pictures first using a card reader if necessary.

Canon eos 400d error 99, shooting not possible. turn the power swithch on off again or re-instal the battery. It has been doing this for a long time and nothing is working to fix it! Thank you,


1.Remove the battery, lens and CF card. Allow the camera to sit without power for 20 minutes and then reinsert a fully charged battery.
2.Turn the camera on and push the shutter button as if you were taking a picture.
3. If you don't get the error message reattach the lens and insert the CF card.
4. Check the below canon eos 400d service manual link:

Problem with the CF card


Do both of these CF cards still function when you connect them to the computer?
Inspect the CF connector on the camera using a flashlight (torch). It's possible that one or more pins on the connector may have been damaged, somehow. If this is the case, the camera will need to be repaired.
Can you still operate the menus after the error message appears? If so, use the menus to reformat the card (see the manual for instructions).

CF Card


Please post back the error message you notice.

Error 2


Error 2 has to do with the Compact Flash (CF) memory card.

Try to copy the contents of the card with a card reader into your PC. Then try reformatting the card with your camera, not your PC.

If the card is empty or you don't mind about its contents, try to format the card right away with your camera.

If that does not work, then most probably your CF card is faulty. If it is still on warranty, send it back to the shop and get a new one.

Hope this helps.
