Error 02 problem

When i switch on the camera the EOS appears on the lcd screen other than that it is blank. After a while an error 02 appears (CF card fault). I have tried previously working cards and they all do the same. The manual says re-format the card but as the lcd screen is blank, this is not possible. The battery is fully charged. Is this a problem with the camera or the card.. My gut feeling says it's the camera.. Please help, Thanks...

If problem exists with different cards, one of the pins in the card chamber might be bend or broken.

Try to use your CF card in another camera. It will let you know if your problem is with the camera or the CF.

What happens when I get Error code 20 on a canon rebel eos rebel t3i 600d?

From the Canon owner's manual:

"Error codes 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80: Shooting is not possible due to an error. Turn the camera off and on again or re-install the battery. Operate the power switch, remove and install the battery pack again, or use a Canon lens (p.32, 28)."

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨. My...

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.

Error reading on screen on 1000e

Hello :

Here is what Canon said according some forums :

To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you do the
following:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If it does, then the camera should
be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of
steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.

If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.

If the "ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

If you see the "ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.
I hope this will help .

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).

NO IMAGE

Check the card isn't set to write protect mode with the switch on it.
I will assume the picture is viewable through the LCD and everything else appears to be normal.

I'm having 3 different problems with my Canon Rebel XT

According to Canon, Error code 02 means that "There is a problem with the CF card. Try any of the following: Remove and re-insert the CF card. Format the CF card, use a different CF card."

Are both CF cards the same brand? Sometimes some brands have conflicts with the camera, you might try using two different brands.

It may not be the card, did you try on the third attempt to remove the battery and put it back in? There may be a problem with the contact points where the CF card plugs into the camera, or in the transfer system itself.

Canon ds6041

The error 02 can come up when there is CF card problem : card not seated properly , card takes too long to come on line from the cameras point of view or if one of the the pins inside CF card chamber is faulty.
