I live in the wilds of Tanzaia and have no chance to get this problem sorted so am asking for advise to see if it could be fixed in camp or would I have to send it out some where?What do I do!!!\015

Answers :

You can fix it.

You need a pencil with an eraser on its end.
Remove the lens
Hold it high so you can see the mount, rub the eraser on the mount pins and surrounds. Make sure no rubber bits get into lens ( hence holding it high) then do the same to the camera body ensuring opening is facing down once again to prevent debris falling into mechanism

Blow the lens and the body with compressed air ( gently) make sure you dont blow hard on the miiror and damage it.( use canned air)

Reconnect the lens to the body and your error 99 should be gone.
let me know how you get on

Err 999 My D50 has a flashing Err with a number 999 and it won't take any pictures. I can review pictures that I have taken but it won't take new ones. I can't find this code anywhere. Does anyone know what has to be done to get rid of this err and clear the camera for operation? Thanks!

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture
