According to ehow:

Turn off your Canon 1000D and remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery. The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger on the battery and pulling it toward you.
  • Place the body cap on your camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
  • Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
  • Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
  • Press the shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself. The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
  • Turn off the camera and insert the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release again.
  • Turn off the camera and reattach the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
  • Turn the camera so that it is face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
  • Turn the lens so that the side that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any eraser scraps fall into the lens.
  • Reattach the lens to the camera. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.

    Tip

    Canon D-SLR error 99!


    Error 99 is a generic failiure that can be related to different parts of the camera. Memmory card, Shutter, Flash, Lens even humidity and temperature could be the reason. Dust and fingerprint on the contacts of the Lens, Memory card and the battery could caus the error too, so the first thing to do is wipe the contacts clean and try the camera, if that doesen't help then follow the procedure below;

    To find the cause, in a place with normal/average humidity and temperature:
    1. Turn off the camera!
    2. Take out the battery.
    3. Take out the memory card.
    4. Remove the lens ( don't forget to cap the body and the lens ends! )
    5. Put the camera in No Flash mode.

    Now with a fully charged battery inserted, try to release the shutter(take a shot). If it is still showing the "err 99" message then the problem lays in the Body (Sutter(*), Mirror, Image Sensor, etc)(**). But if it works then:

    1. wipe the contacts on the memory card and put it back in and try again if the error 99 occurs, then you have a faulty memory card or the contacts inside the memory slot are bent/crooked, look closer to make sure. if they look ok and the camera works then,
    "With the memory card inserted";

    2. Wipe the contacts on the lens and the camera, put the lens in manual focus mode then attatch the lens. Put the camera in Aperture priority(Av) mode. Set the aperture to the widest( the least number) and try. if it works then turn the aperture to the highest number and try again. if the error comes up, then your lens' aperture servo could be faulty (**). If you dont get the "err 99" then turn on the AF of the lens and try, if the error happens then the focus motor is the cause(**). To be sure you can test the camera with another lens. If the camera does work normally, then,
    "With the lens on!";

    3. In a dark place put the camera in "Auto" mode and try to release the shutter(shoot) if the flash does not pop up and it does not respond to you trying to pop up the flash manually, then your flash release mechanism is the problom(**).

    These are some of the most occurring causes, there might be others. A photo store sales man told me it will cost me over $ 200 to repair my camera. My problem was the aperture servo of the lens. I hope this procedure helps you to find the problem and maybe put the money on something more necessary!

    (*)Sometimes the shutter parts fall out of order. You could lift the mirror and have a look at it, if they are not parallel and even, then you may be able to push them back in order but I dont recommend it because they are very delicate and you can make them worse or even damage the image sensor behind it! So let a pro do the job!!

    (**)You should let some one with expertise have a look at it but if you don't think it is worth it and you are a kind of handy man, so, have fun yourself!

    Be Good!.

    I have bought new camera, just tried it today and keeps saying error code 99? turn it off and back on and remove battery and reinstall, tried all of this and it keeps saying the same?


    Error 99 is a catch basin for a number of problems I'm going to assume that because this is a new camera that you didn't format the memory card. Formatting a memory card makes it function perfectly with the camera it's being used in. Also after pictures have been downloaded to the computer you need to format the memory card, cleaning all the old pictures off the card and giving you a fresh clean medium to use to put new pictures on. You will see also that there is this little handy garbage can icon and this is or should be used only when you find you need more space on the card when you are shooting and not the way to clear the card. The memory card should always be formatted in the camera.

    Canon rebel XS error 99


    Instead of taking out the battery, just open and close the battery compartment to reset the camera.

    SVRGuy02 is right, set the slep time longer to avoid the issue so much and just open and close the battery compartment before beginning each shooting exercise

    Error 99


    Error 99 is an "unspecified" error. It can sometimes be due to poor communication between the lens and camera. Here are some things to try:

    1) Turn the camera off. Remove the memory card. Remove the lens. Replace the lens. Turn the camera on. Replace the memory card.

    2) If that doesn't fix the problem, try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera. Turn the camera off and remove the lens. Hold the lens upside down (contacts down) and gently rub the contacts with a clean pencil eraser. Be very careful to ensure that the eraser debris falls on the table and not into the lens. Repeat with the camera body, also holding it upside down (contacts down) as you clean. Replace the lens.

    If neither of these work, then you need to send the camera in to Canon for repair.

    ERROR 99


    if you have a DSLR and your'e getting this "error 99" it may be associated with the particular lens youre using. try turning off the camera and removing the battery, the lens, and the memory card. let it sit for half an hour. reinsert the battery only and depress the shutter button as if you were to take a normal picture. if error 99 occurs again, then the camera needs servicing. if it error 99 doesn't occur at this point, turn the camera off and install the memory card. format the memory card while it's in the camera and press the shutter button as if youw ere to take a normal picture again. if you see error 99, then the problem probably lies with the memory card. if it doesn't occur, turn off the camera and install the lens. again, power on the camera and press the shutter as if you are taking a normal picture. if the error occurs, then it's with the lens. try to clean the lens including the connection points both on the camera and the lens. if the error code still occurs, try different lens to narrow it down to which particular lens is giving the issue. if it happends with all the lens, then the camera needs to be serviced.

    I have error 99 in my camera canon 400d


    Error 99 is a general fatal error.
    which includes the problems above mentioned by Q4SteveB but also many others.

    It can be caused by a dicky shutter, problems with the CF card interface.

    If cleaning and trying a different lens has not worked. Not definitive but as a rule of thumb...
    If it letting you take one picture then giving error 99.. and the picture is saved to the card (but may just be black) this is most likely the shutter needs replacing..

    If it takes a picture and gives error 99 but there is no picture on the card or the picture is 0KB its a CF interface problem.

    If you get an error 99 when you plug in the USB its a USB interface error, you can try a different cable but unfortunately in most cases if another lens or cable wont work it needs repair
