My cannon rebel xt says error cf how do i fix it. was taking pictures took mycf card out to veiw on computer when i put it back it says err cf. tried different cf cards and it says the same thing. help

Step 1 Try to use a different CF card
Step 2. Remove the card and visually check the Compact Flash compartment on the camera.Use a flashlight and check the inside contacts (2 rows of thin golden pins). All the pins should be aligned & straight, and the Compact Flash compartment should be clean with no dirt or foreign objects inside.If you nottice some junk (stuff) in there you can try to remove it ( pull out the battery first) blowing some air (not canned air, only manual blower !) or pickup all the junk from inside with a toothpick or plastic tweezers.If you are NOT comfortable doing this, or have no experience in dealing with the very sensitive electronic parts, DO NOT TOUCH anything, just visually chect the inside and DO NOT try to remove the dirt (junk, stuff) mechanically, use just air.Use common sense and do it on your own risk ! You can damage your camera very easy ! If the pins are bended/broken/missing you have to send the camera out for service.
Step 3.Reset the system removing BOTH batteries !.You have to remove the small 3 volt memory backup cell to. It is a small round button cell battery located inside the
battery compartment.Leave the camera for 20-30 minutes with no battery, you can press the shutter button for few seconds to be sure all the power was consumed from the capacitors.Put back the battery , restart and see if it works.
If the error still occurs after following the steps above, your camera may need repair. Contact Canon’s technical support for further assistance.Due the fact is a 5 years+ camera you have to put in balance if is a good deal to send it out for repairs or to replace it.Good Luck.Let me know if worked.

I get an Err CR inmy Canon EOS Rebet XT-Bad card?

  1. Test the CF card on your computer or another camera. If it works fine then it may not be the card. Make sure the card is not UDMA, 4GB or more in memory size since those new big cards are not compatible with the older cameras.
  2. Look inside the CF port. Make sure that none of the contacts that connect the camera and CF card are bend of smashed flat. If so then the camera will have to be send off for repair. This is a rather expensive repair, $250 is not uncommon.
  3. I it is neither of these then take the camera to a local camera shop and ask them to look at it. It may need to be sent off, but testing another brand card, or resetting the camera or checking for physical defects couldn't hurt at this point.

Broken cf prongs

Wow, CF cards. Well, as you said, the prongs broke which means you need it repaired.

Advice: If you can, sell that and upgrade to the XTi or XT1 version of the Rebel. Now they use SD cards which doesn't have the prongs to break off. Also SD is more of the major memory card that is compatible with electronics. Otherwise, get a point and shoot. They are cheap and also use SD cards.

Repair cost:
2 Prongs replacement = All the prongs replacements. I'm not sure if they have that type in stock anymore. My guess is ranging from 60-100ish USD. Usually they will check to see what is the problem and bill you for their labor and parts.

Error message 99

ouch ...look inside the camera where the CF plugs in .. you may have a bent pin ... some CF cards have a nice lead in taper so it centers the pins as you plug it in .. but some have hardly any taper (no idea why they make some this way) .. if the pin is off just a little with such cards then it bends the pin ... you might see a mark on the CF connector where the pin hit ... also if the card is forced in backwards or out of position you can bend pins ... i have one really nice camera that has 12 missing or bent pins .. someone tried to plug in an adapter that was poorly made (over and over) backwards and forwards .. that camera is spare parts now ..

Unable to load cf card in slot


The pinholder inside the camera has a bend pin or broken pins. You must let it repair. Ask Canon for an proforma invoice. Rotronica in the Netherlands can repair it for you, the cost is approx. 75,00 Euro.

CF card error message

Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, you can take it to be professionally repaired by replacing the card reader. But you may also want to consider repairing it yourself by unbending the pin.

To do so, remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started.

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 the best that you can get it, 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.

Can't power on with CF card

Buy or borrow a new Cf card. These cards, even when all the pins etc. are fine, often fail internally. They are not, as many people believe, a totally foolproof way to store data. If you get a similar problem with a different NEW card then you have to get the camera repaired professionally. Also to try would be reading your suspect card in a card reader on a pc or in another similar camera to see if you have similar problems - confirming if the card is the problem. However if the card seems to work fine in other appliances, it is probably the camera that is the problem, although Cf cards can be temperamental like that especially when they get a little old.
