Either one, as long it is not a microSD card.  If it takes a long time without a card, then the camera is faulty, which I suspect it is.

Is the card access light blinking during the startup time?

What type of memory card are you using?  Only use name brand, full size cards.  Stick to cards 32 GB, or smaller.  Be sure to perform a "low level" format in the camera before use.

The light flashes now and again. Sometimes it comes on and goes off. Going to try new memory card.

New card same problem. Sometimes I have it on live view and camera goes into menu mode , goes black back screen then goes back to menu, very odd.

Do you LOW LEVEL format the memory cards in the camera?  Most memory cards have some residual formatting on them from factory testing during production.  The residual formatting needs to be completely erased.
