Answers :

I think I answered this earlier did you ask this question more tan once?

well here you are a simple fix from experience.

The guy at Canon tech support listened to my woes and then told me that the lens\015\012contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just\015\012a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the\015\012camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and\015\012lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that\015\012might have gotten on them.\015\012Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body.\015\012This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening\015\012points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and\015\012dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the\015\012erasings inside the camera.
\015\012I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and\015\012behold, it worked (so far anyway). I’ve shot numerous pictures with\015\012each lens and have not gotten a single error 99 message.

My Canon EOS 350D camera was working just fine the last time I used it, but now it won't shoot any more. Everything else on the camera works just fine, it just won't take any photographs in any mode. I've changed the CF card but it made no difference. No errors messages appear, it does everything except shoot.

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl

I have a Canon EOS 1000D, and I've had it for almost 4 years. Recently i started having problems with both my lenses.

Have you done the basic unsharp masking after RAW processing? Normally you'll find a 500% strength, 0.3 pixel and a threshold of 1 or 2 brings out the detail masked by the AA filter very well.

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode.

Have dragged my way through the instruction manual and cannot find a troubleshooting section covering this problem. Hope you can help. Thanks Joe
