Answers :

These are steps to Fix Err 99's, have a go and see if resolves your other problem too.

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
\015\0122. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
\015\0123. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
\015\0124. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012
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.
\015\0122. Insert the CF card.
\015\0123. Turn on the camera.
\015\0124. Format the CF card in the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

\015\012\015\012Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
\015\0122. 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.
\015\0123. Reattach your lens.
\015\0124. Turn on the camera.
\015\0125. 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.
\015\012If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.
