Having problems with your Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera ?

Connection problem with Canon 450D to PC.

\015 I connect my canon 450D to the PC via USB. The Adobe elements picks up the camera and the camera shows BUSY on the screen. Elements shows connecting to device ... please wait message. After about 5 seconds the Canon stops showing Busy and the screen looks like I had just switched on without the USB connected. Elements then says the Device is not connected or busy. I have tried different USB cable and Port. Restarting windows etc all to know avail. This was all working fine two days ago and nothing has changed. Help !\015

Answers :

My 450D is having this same problem. i have been fearing it might be a malfunction of the "digital terminal" (the cable "slot" on the camera itself) since the warranty ran out two months ago. did reinstalling the software help?

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
