Having problems with your Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera ?
Cleaning contacts is displayed, after cleaning I can shoot 5 to 8 frames and then again the same error.
With what can I clean them?
You don't say what contacts you're trying to clean. Battery contacts should be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. All others...use the cotton swab/alcohol technique.

My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though. Also, I have reset all settings on the camera. Anyone know why the camera isn't firing off a shot?

Hi K akima...have followed your advice, but no luck. When I go to continuous mode, it only lets me shoot a single shot, the display briefly reads r 08 then returns to r 09 again. I've tried my other lenses ( Sigma and Nikno ) and they autofocus okay and still show the r09 in the display, but again it won't allow me continuous shots, just the one. The Sigma 120-300 doesn't have an autofocus switch, and i've thoroughly cleaned the contacts. Yes it works manually but I need auto for sports pics. Un

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?
It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras
