Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I get an ERR 99 message on my Canon Rebel Xsi


Answers :

Err 99 usually means your lens contacts are dirty either on the lens itself or on the camera.
\015\012
\015\012To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2.\015\012Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a\015\012pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down,\015\012also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do\015\012not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If\015\012the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached,\015\012then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

The problem is that we are getting a lot of pictures that have a 'hard' shadow on the people in them. It doesn't appear to be a regular shadow because it doesn't 'land' on the different surfaces behind them, but is more like a shadow attached to them. Any
