Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT Digital Camera ?

Err 99 When I first start using my camera I get a err 99. I have 3 different flash cards that I use, batteries are fully charged. After a while after constantly cutting it on and off I finally get it to work and then ever once in a while while taking pics it will happen again. I only use the camera once a week and then take about 300 pics at a time then.


Answers :

If you're using a dslr type camera....with removable lenses.....try cleaning the electrical contacts, between the lens and the camera. remove the lens and use a pencil eraser...being careful not to get any debris in the camera or lens. dirty contacts cause a lot of problems. hope this helps.

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00 and not take a picture. Turning the camera off and then on again, or removing and replacing the battery temporarily took care of the problem. Now I am getting the ERR 01 and can not take pics at all, regardless of which lens I use or whether I am using the IS option. I've tried cleaning the c

I bought a second-hand w1200 but it came without any ancillary audio-video output wire for it. You probably know but confirm it for me that this and its connects are used to go to the camera and also the USB port of the computer: can the w1200 camera be used for internet live webcams; also, where can I get this right kind of wire and with small camera end connect; where, in my locale can I get this smallest the smallest trapazoid fit connnect that I've ever seen; I'm in Fort Wayne, Indi

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

The usb port on the camera no longer works. I believe I unplugged it "hot". I've used it regularly for years but ever since unplugging it without ensuring it was properly "stopped" using the computer's "safely remove hardware" function three days ago, the camera is no longer recognized when I plug it in. The usb port still works on other detached items.I've tried to upgrade from the net and to reinstall the camera's usb driver from my install disk and in both instances I get the message it doesn

There is a catch inside the camera that is possibly out of whack. You need to make sure the camera itself is not moving the security slider on the memory card. This would be due to puting the card in wrong or just from wear on the camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C340 Digital Camera

I can transfer the photos from my camera to the PC with the software that came with the camera. When I try to use their e-mail feature I get an error message that says "mail not sent". Yet a few weeks ago I was sending e-mails with pics with no problem, so I know it is not my support system. The program does not allow one to go into my own e-mail and attach pics, so I am stuck with their program which has stopped functioning. What can I do?
