I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. \015\012
  3. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not\015\012possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or\015\012re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after\015\012the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a\015\012language that is different from the actual language setting.
