Canon D40 Error code 99 keeps coming up no matter what i do


Answers :

Unfortunately, the ERR99 code is a catch-all code that means an UNKNOWN\015\012error has occurred. Because of this, it is going to be very difficult\015\012to pin down exactly what is causing the problem.

It could be a fault with either the camera (main circuit board, software, shutter mechanism etc.) or even the lens.

For\015\012starters, I would make sure that the lens electrical contacts are clean\015\012and the lens is mounted correctly and fully locked home. If you have a\015\012spare lens, try that also.

Next, I would reformat the memory card (do this in camera). If you have a spare memory card, try that also.

Check that the battery contacts are clean, and also the contacts of any external hardware such as vertical grips.

If\015\012none of these solve the problem, the only option left is to return the\015\012camera to Canon for a warranty repair, however if it is brand new, I\015\012would take it back to the store for an exchange.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it

I bought a used canon xs from craigslist. I think a hard lesson learned already. Anyway the camera appears to be in great condition. The problem is whenever I take a picture it does not come out right. The colors are way off. Some colors look fine, blue will come out beige, gray or green.

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl
