Here is a list of the D30 error codes...

* Err 09: SYSTEM

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when the EOS D30's self-checking system processing time has exceeded the specified limit. This error can occur when several switches are pressed at the same time.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Because this error is caused by abnormal operation, try releasing the error by turning the main power switch OFF and then back ON. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 10: SYSTEM

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs if there is an internal malfunction detected during the camera's self-checking procedure that's executed before every attempted exposure. This is somewhat similar to the flashing 'BC' warning that occasionally appears on EOS-1 series 35mm SLRs. Please note that Canon considers Error 10 to be an unusual error that's not supposed to happen.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Similar to Error 09, try releasing the error by turning the main power switch OFF and then back ON. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician. Please be careful to note the conditions under which the error message occurred.

* Err 22: CF DRIVER

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when image data cannot be written to the CF card. This error can occur when the CF card is not fully seated in the camera or if the D30 does not detect a card-ready signal within a specified time limit or when the CF card is not usable because it has been corrupted or physically damaged. It can also occur when the camera's battery level is insufficient to completely write the file to the CF card.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Use the DC Coupler or recharge the battery first. If the error continues to occur with sufficient power available to the camera, check that the CF card is properly inserted. If that's not the problem, then try replacing the CF card. If that does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 and one of the CF cards that is causing the problem examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 23: NO SPACE LEFT ON CF CARD

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when the CF card's free space is insufficient for the image file that has been created. For example, when using a nearly full CF card, if a long exposure is made with noise reduction shut off, the file size may become larger than average, resulting in insufficient space to write the file.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Use a CF card with sufficient free space. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 50: CF FORMAT

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when the CF card cannot be formatted in the camera.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Replace the CF card. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 51: PLAY MODE

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when the images stored on the CF card cannot be played back in the camera.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Replace the CF card. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 80: SHUTTER

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions:
1. When the EOS D30's self-check system detects that the shutter has not been fully charged (ready to shoot).
2. When the EOS D30's self-check system detects that the shutter operation sequence has not been completed correctly.
3. When the built-in flash cannot be recharged after the E-TTL preflash but before the main exposure.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Try clearing the error by turning the main power switch OFF and then back ON. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 81: MIRROR

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions:
1. When the EOS D30's shutter release is pressed to the halfway position and the mirror-down status cannot be verified by the EOS D30's self-checking system.
2. When mirror up/down status cannot be detected during shutter release.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 82: STROBE

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when the built-in flash cannot be charged.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Try clearing the error by turning the main power switch OFF and then back ON. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 83: POP UP

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when the built-in flash pop-up operation cannot be detected even after the pop-up operations have been repeated three times.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Try clearing the error by turning the main power switch OFF and then back ON. If this does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician. (NOTE: The EOS D30 can be used with an EX-series Speedlite and/or with an electronic flash connected through the PC socket even when the built-in flash is unavailable.)

* Err 84: LENS COMMUNICATION

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions:
1. When electronic communication with the lens cannot be established, after the EOS D30 is powered ON or when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
2. When the lens diaphragm cannot be controlled during shutter release.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Clean the electronic contacts on the lens with a clean, soft, dry cloth and check the mount interface switch on the body's lens mount for dirt or other damage. If this does not solve the problem, try another Canon EF lens or have the EOS D30 examined by a qualified service technician.

* Err 86: SYSTEM

DESCRIPTION: This error is a general (i.e., non-specific) data communication error that can occur when the camera goes through it's self-checking routine prior to every exposure. This error seems to occur only when battery levels are very low.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: If you are getting this error code consistently with freshly charged batteries, you should have your D30 checked by Canon Factory Service.

'CF' is your flash memory card - Compact Flash (no code needed)!

Could it of went bad while using it?Or had it lost it's connection and need cleaning of the contacts? Are there any checks I can do to see if the card is bad? The card has not been used much.
