Hello :

\015\012The Canon Error 99 is a message that pops up when there is a contact issue between a lens and the body of the camera. Also it represents a bad battery, defective storage card and anything else the software doesn’t seem to like. It’s basically a catch all error message a bit like the familiar windows BSOD.
\015\012Up till now the current procedure to get rid of the Canon Error 99 was to take the battery out and put it back in. Canon have now created firmware numbered 1.0.3 that aims to tackle the Err99 message .

\015\012Firmware 1.0.3 fixes Canon Error 99\015\012\015\0121. Corrects a phenomenon in which an image becomes overexposed when C.Fn.II-3 Highlight tone priority is set to “1′ together with other camera settings. (This correction has already been incorporated in the Version 1.0.2 and later firmware.
2. Corrects a rare phenomenon in which “busy” blinks on the camera’s display panel and the shutter cannot be released due to the timing of battery installation.
3. Corrects a rare phenomenon in which “Err 99′ appears on the camera’s display panel and LCD monitor and the shutter cannot be released due to the timing of pressing the shutter button.

I occasionally get an err 99 when shooting a sequence. It's as though the images can't be written to the card fast enough and it jams. The only way to reset the camera is to turn it off, remove and replace the battery and turn it back on. This is a major inconvenience as it tends to happen more often when I shoot water and the camera is secured in my housing. Please help me!

I have a Canon EOS, 1000D which I purchased in Feb 09. I have an error message coming up on the screen everytime I take a shot (which doesn't record). The error is a Err 99, "Shooting is not possible. Turn the power swith to OFF and ON again or reinstall the battery." Which I have done and the problem seems (at this stage) to be fixed.
