Leaf Aptus 22 CF-Card issue

Postby NNN636371266123533487 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 10:39 pm

Has anyone had problems with the Aptus 22 not recognising any CF-card? Even after formatting to FAT32 and only using the cards supported by the back. When the back is switched on it only says "insert a storage card" and the led blinks red. I contacted support and they basically said; tough luck...

So grateful for any advice.

Here is what cards are supported

Also note that they have to be formatted this way:

The back it self does not support full formatting so it has to be done on a computer.

Hi, I have the same problem with my Aptus 22. I have formatted all the cards exactly the way it says in the instructions. Mine does not even tether with Leaf Capture any more. Please help!

Hi all!

my Aptus 17 has some problem: Insert a storage card

as that

Would anybody can help for that?

I'm tryed three CF (16, 16Gb and one old SanDisk Ultra II (15mb/s) 2Gb ) - unlucky

(all of them works with Sony A850, Nikon E800), and was full-formatted to Fat16 or Fat32 from PC via cardreader. No resolved...

Firmvare is newest. 29000 actuations. I bought this back with this issue, but I thinked this would be easy fixed by correct (old) cards and pre-formatting, but still not resolved yet.

The back I was disassembled fully - separated for all four plates. Looked up for the CF- place holder. All contacts as Ok, all smd elements too. No bents, frying or liquid spots, or corrosion. One from smd-capasitors was be mechanically cracked - near the screen's flex connector (I think, it from predecesser's handling, really not me). But I successfully was solder (replace) by another capasitor (such form-factor and color from Intel CPU \I has hundreds of them\). This was not any affect for the problem.

ps: I think, you are bought 22MP from KEH (as is, for parts), I'm the 17MP Aptus - from other seller \at spring of 2017\
