Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

''err 99'' code appearing fairly often recently on Canon Rebel XT

\015 ''err 99'' appeared when I was shooting outdoors 25 degrees - no recovery until battery charged again - err 99 seemed to instantly drain the battery. \302\240I purchased a new battery. \302\240Last night shooting with a flash indoors, ''err 99'' appeared fairly often. \302\240When I shut off the camera and then switched it back on, it worked again - new battery OK - until problem occurred again.\015

\015\0123. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
\015\0124. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
