9 month old canon 40D still functions but the display on top of camera will not show setting changes. Almost all icons are illuminated. Again, the camera still works and I can check settings on the back display but top display is locked. Any solutions besides sending it to NJ for 3 weeks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

With newer Canons you have to run a software program to "initialize" the board when you replace it. The board comes blank, and you have to add the program and settings to run the camera. The software also allows you to replace the serial numbers, do exposure and auto focus adjustments etc. Canon does not sell this proprietary software. You would have to send the camera to Canon and they would charge you the set repair price. Wish I had better news. But try adding the latest firmware. I am not sure if the 40D is the cutoff for this or it started with the 50D. You have to do this with all current Canon models.
Shutter speed too high...1/250 violates the max flash synch speed of most FF cameras....the shutter is not fully open at that speed when the exposure is made, and you are seeing one curtain at the black band.
avoid getting milked get the camera back asap how much is a pound in dollars anyway...
Try a new set of batteries the snap of the shutter may be just enough to load down a weak battery array warranty is warranty and they have the rest of the world that still may buy theor stuff and all thecompanies are the same. Hey that is giving the business, Silent protest and it is silent. No matter how loud you are yelling grab their purse strings when you can they are connected to their unit between their toes. Yea there large toes.
Make sure that you didn't dislodge the memory card when you put in the battery.
Note that you can get a memory card reader to read the contents of the flash card directly on your computer.
If the 40D is like the other Canon DSLRs that I have used, you can put an update on the flash card that will update the camera's firmware. You might need to go to the Canon side and download new firmware to update your camera. Instructions should be on the site.
The exposure compensation dial (at the back) doesn't work when you're in Manual. In Manual, you set the shutter speed and aperture to get an image with the amount of over- or under-exposure you need. In the view finder, the "exposure meter" at the bottom shows how much light there is where the lens is pointed. When it shows what you called "2-stops", its really underexposed. Thus your black images. You need to increase ISO, open the aperture and slow down the shutter speed (or a combination of these 3 options)
Set your camera to P or full-auto. Do the photos turn out ok? If they do, then there's nothing wrong with your camera and you just need practise on the Manual mode.
error 99 can be several things. Try the following. Check that the contacts on the lens housing are clean if not clean them with a swab of denatured alcohol available at walmart. also if there is extremely cold weather your shutter could be creating the error. Try using a blow dryer and on the warm setting warm up the camera with the lens off. Blow around the mirror area. I know it sounds silly but it has worked in the past. Good luck.
