Tip & How-To about Canon Eos Cameras

THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW...PART2. fUJI FINEPIX/ SAMSUNG DIGIMAX

The headache that is "ERROR 99".
The common, works for everything, general fault code.
Doesn't tell you alot in the manual, except consult your nearest dealer...
Fantastic...

So, what does it refer to??
Well, Your camera works to a program and parameters and if one of these goes down and the cause cannot be isolated by the software then a fall back, general, fault code will apply. error 99..
If its a lens issue with communication then try a different lens to isolate the fault. Clean the contacts with lint free cloth. Don't use solvents as the contacts are gold plated and solvents will remove the plating and then you will be in trouble..
Error 99 could mean anything so try to isolate the fault by adjusting settings etc or replacing the batteries (main battery and c-mos battery).
Finding out what,where, why and when is how I start with Error 99 so as much info as possible.
Power loss/drain is a usual common fault. Mainly to do with the flash.
It won't pop up, won't fire etc..
The "Busy" sign is the give away. You press the shutter button and the busy sign flashes (sometimes for ages and then still nothing) Its trying to charge the flash but there is a problem with the circuit or components. Whilst this is happening power is being diverted from other circuits and causing more issues..
There could be thousands of reasons why.
Replacing the flash capacitor has always worked for me. It's a battery with an extremely fast discharge rate and charge rate. It wears out...Quicker than you think.
Don't forget everything made today is from the cheapest manufacturer. made with cheap materials for the disposable, throw away world of today.

Following a major service my tacho is displaying an error code by the following sequence "3000 1000 0, then repeating 3000 1000 0" What does it mean and how can I clear it so that the rev counter functions again?


Hi, Nrcapelle for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I have a Dell XPS 600 desktop computer. I cannot get the power to stay on. None of the diagnostic lights light up. I have checked all of the connections and everything is secure.


Here's what to try: Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and memory. You may leave the video connected to see what, if any, error message you might get.
You didn't say if you got any beeps on startup. They can tell you what might be the problem.
If this doesn't work, remove the memory modules. The power should stay on but you'll probably get either a steady beep or a bunch of little beeps. (I don't have the Dell error codes close at hand at the moment).
If this doesn't work, you have narrowed the problem to one of three things: The CPU, the motherboard, or the power supply.
You didn't mention just what happens when you turn it on--just that it won't stay on. Error messages are helpful if you get any on the screen as are any beep tones.

I just bought a LHB975, i've tried everything from doing the "hard system reset" to "remating" the wireless speakers and it doesn't work. LG is telling me ai have to send it in and spend AT LEAST $70 just for a diagnosis!!! PLEASE HELP!


If the unit is less than 12 months old, take it to an authorised repair agent for repairs. You shouldn't have to pay anything if it's a fault of faulty workmanship or anything else under that description if the unit is still under it's under 12 months. If it's not covered by warranty, I'm afraid that you will find everywhere charges a diagnostic fee.
