Canon EOS 40D - Error 99

\015 Hi Guys , I was in Sea World Today - Shamu the killer Whale killed my camera - I was taking some phorographs and Shamu let fly a shower of water , barely getting the camera with a mist , then the error 99 came up - The camera only got a slight mist , with no excess water at all , Can anyone help please ?\015

Answers :

The 40D is not a water resistant camera body. It is VERY important to keep it from getting wet, even "just a little mist".

The first thing you need to do is remove the battery, and the lens. Then let the camera dry out in a warm and not-humid location for a few days. Do NOT try to power it up until you are 100% certain that it is dry.

The water at Sea World has salt in it. You may have salt in an electrical connection, even after the water has dried. You can try using a swab very lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol to dry the connections you can reach - the battery connection and the connections between the camera body and the lens (clean the connections on the lens as well as the camera body). Then let the camera dry AGAIN for at least 24 hours before you reattach the lens and insert the battery.

If these do not fix the camera then you will need to send it in to Canon for cleaning and refurbishing.

Focus failure Hi. I hope you can help. I've a canon 40D and am using it remotely with the EOS utility v 2.3. I am only able to take an image when the live view mode is active. When inactive and I use either the shoot button or the timer, an error flashes up "focus failure". The camera focuses fine in live mode. Have dragged my way through the instruction manual and cannot find a troubleshooting section covering this problem. Hope you can help. Thanks Joe

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

My Canon 40D suddenly came down with the dreaded Error 99 for no apparent reason. I have tried all the usual, battery, memory card, lens, but no luck. Even on the bulb setting the shutter won't stay open. It clicks as if taking a photo but then the error message appears. Is it a job for Canon? Thanks Trevor Lx
