The manual says when this comes up, it means there is a problem with pictures being recorded or read. You should transfer whatever pictures you have on there to a computer and then format the card. Make sure you format the card in the camera via the menu.

My camera functions are not responding and when I try to take a picture it shows erro2 on the shutter speed screen, I have try to switch it off and replace the bettry and the cf card still no change


Concerning Err2, the manual states:'There is a problem with the CF card. Do one of the following: Remove and reload the CF card, format the CF card, or use another CF card'

It may also be due to using a card that is too slow. Try using a faster card.

Hope that helps,

Constant CF card error even though card in correctly


One or more of your CF pins in the camera are bent/broken. They will need to be replaced by a professional camera technician. Most repair shops will charge between $150-$200.

Have a canon rebel EOS 20D that registers an error 99 after I take one frame and then won't allow another one to be taken until I turn camera on then off again. Does this require factory repair or is there...


Hi LLFraserny,
You can probably try to isolate the error 99 first.
To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 30 minutes.
4. Insert 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 it does, then the camera will need to be serviced. If the message does not appear, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
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 the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Be 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.
If 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 should be serviced.
One last item to check before sending camera to Canon service is the alignment of the shutter. Life the mirror and visually inspect the shutter curtain. If each segment is not completely straight, touch it lightly with your blower bristles and try to pop it back into alignment.

Hope this helps,
Andrew

My canon xsi about 8 months old. err 99 appear during my wedding coverage. and even i remove the cf card, the batt and change it still the err 99 appear. and wen i came home i change the lens and wen i...


err99 is a generic error code that the camera cannot identify to a particular component.

One thing to try is to switch off, remove the lens and clean the gold contacts on the camera and lens.

This is a common cause for err99 and in a lot of cases cures the problem

ERR 99


try cleaning the battery contacts and the contact spring tabs in the battery compartment... also visually check to make sure the tabs are sticking out to make good contact with the battery terminals.

Also here's an excerpt from a canon blog ..it's a quote from a Canon usa service guy...

hope it's a help for you..

ERR CF


The pins inside the camera may be damaged. Use a flashlight to check inside the slot where the card goes

CF Error


I had the same symptoms. I took it to an authorized Canon repair shop. For $150, they resoldered connections on my 'power supply board'.  No idea why the solder gave out. It's working great now.
