Hello - I have a Canon EOS 350D that displays an error code 'F5' intermittently. Can anyone tell me what that means?

    I have the same problem. The error message does state 'F5' and will not take pictures for a while when this occurs. Does anyone know what this message means and how I can fix?

There is no error code F5. Could you mean 05? That is a flash error

Hi, Mark here to try & help.

Error 5 on a cannon slr means flash did not pop up.
This is not unusual even on there high end slrs.
Have even seen it on new cameras out of the box.

Fix

  1. Push flash pop up button & gently assist flash to open.
  2. Clean inside flash compartment be very gentle, use warm soapy water on the end of a q-tip (do not soak q-tip just dampen), clean moving parts as well.
  3. let dry then remove any lent or cotton that might be left behind (wrapping tape works well for this just dab).
  4. Apply wd-40 with q-tip to moving parts again do not soak q-tip you just want a light coating .
  5. You will still have to do this again on occasion, & it will only help with fewer errors, you will still get them just not as often.
Cannon will have to redesign this flaw, but do not hold your breath, this is something that has been happening for awhile. You can send it in but still have same problem when it comes back.

Know that is not all good news. But it should Fix ya! & you have some idea of what is happening.
Please rate. Good Luck! & Happy Shooting!

It sounds like you have some bent pins in the card slot. Take it to a reputable camera repair and they can look and tell you for sure.

SOURCE: Canon EOS/Rebel XT won't power up

Joe, this happened to me, just tonight... I got a new CF card and stuck it in, turned it on and one CF card flash. Completely dead from there. I found one of the CF card pins bent over, shorted out the socket and blew the mainboard fuse. I took the camera apart, found the fuse (labelled K) about under the set button area) I bridged the fuse with a bit of solder, straightened out the pin in the socket, put it all back together and it's working fine. The fuse is under the right side shield cover, it's labelled with a letter K. There is another fuse on the power inlet board (below the shutter button) and it's labelled 'P'...

You need to change the camera's USB connection mode from "PC" to "Print/PTP" in camera setting menu. After that it should be recognized by Windows 7 without drivers.

Ge oven jkp27 code f5


Hello Donald,

The F5 error code means that the control board has detecteda error within it self and theirfore the control(also called clock or EOC) needs to be replaced. The F5 error code can be cleared by pushing the cancel/off button and if it returns a short time later their is defiently a malfunction inside of the clock and it would need to be replaced.

Trying to clean my whirlpool oven. when it start button, an E1 - F5 comes up. What is this telling me.


Hello,

What the F5-E1 error code means is that the door lock asm. is not operating so when its suppused to close and lock the door to self clean it cant do it since something is wrong with the latch/lock assambly

Some of the things that would need to be checked to see why the latch isn't working are;
the latch position switch,the latch itself to be good and opening/closing, & the part called the soloniod that is what operates the latch so it could open or close
