Question about Canon Cameras
I did not use the Canon EOS for some 6 years. The black handgrip has become melting/sticky.

Err 99 is a general error msg. That is, it has to be connected to the service soft that only Canon self or an ASF has, to know more precisely the problem.
To narrow the possibilities;
-choose Av, shutter priority,
-choose the smallest aperture your lens allows, 22 or 29 or so,
-while pressing and releasing the depth-of-field preview button, (front, under the lens release) look into the lens from the front.
If the diaphragm doesn't move it has to be changed. If you have the 17-55 standard lens; throw it away and buy a better one instead of paying a repair. You'd be better off.
If you have the Err msg with several different lenses the problem is in the body itself, often the shutter. Check also your PINs in the CF-slot. If one PIN is toching another; break off the bent one and normally you can go on, the PINs are almost all doubled.

If you drop your camera in the dirt a lot, I would send it in for the cleaning. It just takes one grain of sand, if left to bounce around long enough inside your camera, to enter the lens assembly and jam a gear in the lens gearbox forever. Most sand will not jar loose again, and will require a repair to remove it. If you shake your camera and can hear dirt bouncing around inside, I would take the free cleaning service right away.

It's not the Autofocus, there's no 'non-engineer' fix. Lens and slider have failed, it's basically broken inside and I suspect it was the original fault. It's about £160-200 outside of warranty to fix via a canon authorised repair agent such as www.camera-repair.co.uk in Colchester. Send it back, get your money back.

This is what the people at the canon tech support say to do for error 99
read this!! :)
The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.
Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.
I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked
hope this works for you!!!! have a nice day!! :) :)
