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

Error 99 in Canon EOS 350 D

\015 I have been experiencing sporatic error 99 messages for the past 1 week with my kit lens and my Canon EF-S, 18-55 mm, 1:3.5 - 5.6 II. This original Lens was bought along with the Camera. I have taken just over 10,000 exposures with my camera in 16 months.\015\012\015\012If I change the lens, the camera works fine.\015\012\015\012I have done this, but still the error continues : \015\012\015\0121. Carefully clean the 8 gold color lens contact pins on the camera body \015\012lens mount with a pencil eraser. Do this while holding the camera so that \015\012any eraser dust will not fall into the camera. \015\012\015\0122. Take out both batteries. Also remove the CF memory card. \015\012\015\0123. With the batteries removed, turn the camera switch on for 3-5 minutes. He said that this clears the memory. \015\012\015\0124. Turn the camera off and put the batteries and CF card back in. \015\012\015\0125. Re-attach the lens and turn it back on.\015\012I get the Err 99 when I try to take a picture with my Canon Digital Rebel XT. It used to happen intermittantly, but lately I can't take a picture at all. I cleaned the lens contacts with an eraser, but it didn't help at all.\015

Answers :

Try the following diagnosis steps, in this exact order. This will isolate the cause of the issue: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

\015\012If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

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
