Having problems with your Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera ?

Canon EOS 20D shutter error

\015 Everytime I turn on my 20D the shutter rapidly opens and closes as if it's taking pictures and the info screen on the top flashes err 99. It's not taking any pictures and I've tried putting in a cf card and anything else I can think of, but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

My Canon eos 1 n shows a bc error when I fire the shutter, it will AF, and meter the scene fine but then bc appears. I have been told by a tech that the shutter is fine, and that the board is fried. My thinking is if the board wasn't working surely it wouldn't focus or meter? It's a costly fix so I just want to confirm that I'm not getting taken for a ride, any thoughts.

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

"busy" Error Yet another Canon 20D question. I have been shooting both film and digital at weddings for the last two weeks. I have been very impressed with the 20D (I shot Nikon for 22 years). However, I have had my share of camera errors on the 20D. Lately, it shuts down in the middle of shooting and the LCD panel reads "busy." The busy error does not go away when turning off the camera. At first I assumed that the buffer was maxed, but I'm only shooting in single shot mode. Eventually, after m

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not. I sent it to Canon repair who wanted to charge me more than it was worth to repair but that was before they even started to analyse the problem. I decided to buy a brand new 20d. Put in the battery and the CF card and exactly the same thing has happened. I can get the cameras to come on but when I press the buton the flash jumps
