Having problems with your Canon EOS 30D Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Error 99 on 30D Canon

\015 I have a canon 30D. I have error 99. I can take one picture then get the error. I take out battery, then replace, then can take one more picture then same error then repeat process. The manual says not compatable lens. I have the same problem no matter what brand lens on camera, even with Canon lens. Can you please help?\015

Answers :

Had this problem before and i found this guide online

1. Turn off the camera.
\015\0122. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
\015\0123. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
\015\0124. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
\015\012serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
\015\0122. Insert the CF card.
\015\0123. Turn on the camera.
\015\0124. Format the CF card in the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
\015\012likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
\015\012If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
\015\0122. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
\015\012or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
\015\012camera body.
\015\0123. Reattach your lens.
\015\0124. Turn on the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
\015\012attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
\015\012If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
\015\012camera should be serviced.

Hi,
\015\012 if it still takes a picture (even if its black) its most likely a faulty shutter.
\015\012unfortunately error 99 can be many things. If you can remember what lead up to it i could possibly be more precise, but its most likely going to need a service center unless you fancy stripping the camera down
\015\012
\015\012Best of luck

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

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working.
