Answers :

This has the sound of ccd problems or failure.
However, try to get to the menus and set everything to factory default.

Try the camera. If you are still having troubles, consider calling Canon at the repair department, they have great support, and will answer your questions. Canon Repair.
Tell them the problem, and see what they say about it. The possibility that this may be covered by Canon, may be something to explore. They also have a trade-in or a trade-up service.

I also found this on the NET:
"You can download firmware updates for your camera from CanonUSA.com.\015\012This won't necessarily fix the problem. ERR99 is a general error. It\015\012often means that the camera can't talk to some hardware properly --\015\012memory card, lens, etc. You first need to see if you can isolate the\015\012problem. Do you only get the error with a particular lens? Are you\015\012using an old lens? Try a different lens. Wipe off the electrical\015\012contacts on the lens and the camera. Try formatting your memory card in\015\012the camera and/or try a different card. If none of that helps then you\015\012may need to send the camera into Canon Factory Service for warranty\015\012service."
The last resort would be to sell the camera as parts on a site such as Ebay for parts or repair, as is.
