    card error code

    My neice is using one of my old E-1 cameras and it is now coming up with card error (in red)on the back screen and -E- flashing on the top display. It hasn't been abused as far as I can see. Anyone got any suggestion to clear this please?
    Any help appreciated!

    Have you tried formatting the card in camera. Inexperienced photographer think deleting images after they have been downloaded is good enough, not so it's best to format to empty the card, always.

    Patrick......I tried that and didn't work. I also took one of my CF cards and tried it in the camera and the same message came up. I will try the card in my own camera to see what happens. I suspect this E-1 may be a scrapper as cheaper to buy another S/H if it cannot be sorted.

    Before dumping the camera try formatting the card in the computer, not normally recommended, but in the case may work, then formatting again in camera. Worth a try.

    Card works fine in my own E-1 and stores images no problem. Has anyone any other ideas to get this e-1 working?

    Have you tried battery out for 48 hour which should do a complete reset of all settings?
    All the best

    Re: card error code

    Still have a card error flag on the screen and "E" on the top display. One final request for help before I dispose of this once cracking camera. Any other ideas to bring this E-1 back to life please?

    You may have a bent pin in the card slot, compact flash cards have a habit of doing that if forced in wrong way round.

    Re: card error code

    Hi.

    If I do understand properly, the "damaged" E1 is not able to read any CF cards you put in, and all those cards work properly on other cameras/card readers? Correct?

    If it is so, the only think I advise you to try - if you have it or know anyone who has it - is to try a CFII card adapter for SD cards, like this one http://psism.com/psi-sdxcf.htm.

    Because it might not use all the contact pins on the camera's card reader - because the camera's problem is certainly related to its card reader.

    But don't spend money buying one of these adapters now. I have one similar to the one in the picture I sent and it works Ok on the E1, but I'm certain that the new ones might have compatibility issues.

    Kind regards,

    Rogerio
