Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens ?

Canon Rebel EOS camera

\015 I have a Canon Rebel EOS camera giving me an err99 message. I can fix it long enough to take 2-10 pictures by removing the lens, taking out the battery, messing with the shutter and taking out the memory chip. However, it doesn't solve the problem.\015

Answers :

Err 99 is a general error msg. That is, it has to be connected to the service soft that only Canon self or an ASF has, to know more precisely the problem.
To narrow the possibilities;
-choose Av, shutter priority,
-choose the smallest aperture your lens allows, 22 or 29 or so,
-while pressing and releasing the depth-of-field preview button, (front, under the lens release) look into the lens from the front.
If the diaphragm doesn't move it has to be changed. If you have the 17-55 standard lens; throw it away and buy a better one instead of paying a repair. You'd be better off.

If you have the Err msg with several different lenses the problem is in the body itself, often the shutter. Check also your PINs in the CF-slot. If one PIN is toching another; break off the bent one and normally you can go on, the PINs are almost all doubled.

EOS Utility I purchased a Rebel Xsi, and installed the software.
