Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

I have a canon eos digital camera. It has error 99 code on it when I try to take a picture

Answers :

Error 99 can be caused by poor communication between the camera and the lens. Often it can be resolved by doing one of these following fixes:

1) Turn the camera off, remove the lens, replace the lens, turn the camera on.

2) If that doesn't work, turn the camera off and remove the lens. Use a clean pencil eraser to clean the electrical contacts between the lens and the camera body. Hold the lens or camera body "upside down" so that the contacts are facing down as you rub them with the eraser so that any eraser debris falls onto the table rather than falling into your camera or lens. Replace the lens.

If neither of these fix your problem you will need to send the camera and lens in to Canon for repair.

Relatively new canon eos 60d. Was taking multiple pictures in a group setting. Received an error that the lens and the camera were not connected well (I receive this from time to time, need to buy a newer lens). Usually, I just turn the camera off and then back on and it works fine. This time, the view through the viewfinder is very dark and it will take no pictures of any kind. Tried everything I know- no luck.

My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down. I followed a procedure on the web for this issue and got the camera lens to open and it was working (able to take pictures for about a minute). When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it.

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?

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨. My camera worked for a couple of pictures at one point following this initial error message and then acted up again, showing err 02. It then quickly reverted back to old error CF message.

Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!

Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint. If I try to take a picture, the picture is streaky or pink. Is this the problem that Canon will fix free of charge? The problem has been getting progressively worse since last year. What do you suggest?

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
