Battery Problems Canon eos 10D
\015 The life of my batteries is drastically reduced compared to how long they should last. I put them on charge for the right amount of time and my battery charger is indicating full charge when i turn it off. \015\012After putting them in my camera they last about 10 minuites and i get the empty battery icon and the camera turns itself off. But if i take the battery out and warm it in my hand, once i put it back in the camera i get the half battery icon and it works again for a few minuites.\015\012I have tried the two obvious solutions of buying a new battery and a new charger, but this has had no effect and i still have a drastically reduced battery life. I have bought a canon brand battery but my charger is only a canon compatable charger.\015

I have a Canon EOS, 1000D which I purchased in Feb 09. I have an error message coming up on the screen everytime I take a shot (which doesn't record). The error is a Err 99, "Shooting is not possible. Turn the power swith to OFF and ON again or reinstall the battery." Which I have done and the problem seems (at this stage) to be fixed. Is it just a battery problem or is there someother problem with the camera it's self. SJ

I got Canon EOS Kiss 450D (Japan). Recently, the problem i encountered is ERR 99. I have read an article that it might be with the body lense "connection" and some might arise from battery problem. Also, im wondring whenever I charge the battery, after only 20 minutes the charger would blink red and green. Unlike before that when its already full charge it would only change from red to green. So i was thinking the ERR 99 might also be due to the battery. Is this really normal for the charger? Is
Canon's error 99 is a catch all for connection problems. You can clean the gold contacts with a pencil eraser by lightly polishing the surface and whip with a lens cloth not tissue. However after reading your description about the battery and charger ... Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera
Hi I have used my canon camera eos 400d with the 17-85 mm canon lense for nearly 2 years. Since last week i am encouttering the error 99 < replace the battery and try again>.I did this but the problem persist. I replaced the lense with the default lense that comes with the camera.The problem has been solve. So the conclusion is that the 17-85mm lense was faulty. Since it cannot fucus on automatic and is continueously blinking. I SHOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD HELP ME TO HAV

I have two issues with my Canon EOS Rebel XS. One issue has been acting up for a while: If I turn the camera on and try to shoot, it tells me shooting is not possible and to turn the camera off and on again or redo the battery insertion. The only thing that works is if I take the battery out and in and turn the camera on again. The second problem started yesterday. My camera would not turn on so I thought the battery was uncharged even though I got no message saying that. But after chargi

I own a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi. I have recharged the battery and put it in the camera. However, the camera won't turn on. Shortly before having this problem, I seem to recall a message in red letters on the display that said something to the effect that my battery pack was bad. I have a sinking feeling that my battery is good, but there is something wrong with my camera. Can you recommend what I should do?
You can buy a new battery for around five pounds ($8). I found some straight away on Amazon. It has to be worth getting one just to see if it actually is your battery that's bad. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?
Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it. ... Canon Digital Cameras
Canon EOS XS - when attempting to download pics to Mac get :BUSY on screen - and blinking red light on lower right back corner of camera. Have downloaded many photos in past - never had this problem.

Canon EOS 3000V The film is blank when developed. there a few smudges in a couple of corners but that is it. Man in shop said it looked like a shutter problem. could this be caused by low battery power?
Dust on the image sensor of a digital camera will show up as a dark spot in the same location of every frame. The sensor is a delicate piece of equipment and you need to clean it to solve your problem .... I dont think poor battery can cause a smudge ... Digital Cameras
Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement. Here in NZ there is a huge wait for repairs, so if it is beyond repair I?ll just re

Batteries need replaced constantly. I am using 2 AA alkaline as instructed. As soon as I put them in it says batteries are low and shuts off. This is happening with all brands of new batteries. What's the problem? Occasionally I may get to take 1 or 2 pictures before this happens, usually none. Seems to be a prevalent problem with this particular camera. This is my 2nd Canon and I'm pretty sure there won't be a third. Canon should recall these cameras and either fix them or give a reduction on a
