Why will my Canon EOS Rebel 35mm camera not turn on?


Probably battery compartment corrosion. Check for corroded contacts and clean them with a nail file or similar "tool". If that doesn't help, the corrosion has probably run into the circuit behind the contacts. If I remember well, that compartment is removable without great difficulty. I would get one of my relics but don't have the time today to dig through all those boxes!! Let me know if you need further help.

I dug up my old Canon Elan 7e and put new batteries in the Vertical Grip Battery Pack BP300, but it's still dead. Anything I can try before bringing in to a camera shop, or selling both the camera and...


Take off the BP300 and put in the appropriate batteries in the camera. If the camera works without the BP300, you know the problem is in the battery pack. If not, you know the problem is in the camera. On eBay, you can replace the camera body for about $35 and the battery pack for about $20.

Hope that helps,

Here are a few things to try:


1. Remove the main battery and the small backup battery (CR2025) from the battery compartment. Charge your main battery and put both batteries back in once your main battery has been charged. Sitting without batteries will give the camera a chance to reset itself.

2. You may have a bad CF card. Try starting your camera without a CF card or use another.

3. Try reloading the firmware (camera's operating system) using this link Canon. http://web.canon.jp/imaging/EOS10D/10D_firmware-e.html
Be careful to follow instructions exactly as restarting the camera in the middle of a firmware update will brick it and you will need to send it back to Canon for repair.

Hope that helps,

If your cards work properly in another camera, the problem is most likely caused by one or more of the CF Card pins being bent inside your camera. Sometimes, if a card gets a small piece of sand or debris in one of the holes, it can cause it to push one of the pins in the camera straight back out of its hole.

Canon 400d err99 message when trying to take a picture. how do I resolve problem?


Error 99 also refers to communication problems between lens and camera, so worth cleaning the contacts...you can't lose anything in doing so.
1. Take your battery out and reinsert it - this will clear it.
2. Clean your lens contacts carefully with a plastic pencil eraser. Sometimes corroded contacts can cause errors like this.
3. Try the camera with different lenses - if it is occuring with several lenses, it may point more strongly to a camera fault.
4. Make sure you have the latest firmware installed.

How can i clean the small dirty black points on my photos?


You may need a technician (contact photo store or Canon)to physically clean your sensor. You can also do it yourself by purchasing a device such as found on this site http://www.visibledust.com/

Canon EOS 400D SLR - Err 99


Try going into the menu and turning off the lock for shooting without a lens. Then try firing it without a lens to see if it works. Very often a lens problem can cause the Err 99 message.

Also, check to make sure the pop-up flash is not stuck down. That could also cause it.

Unless you have used your camera a LOT, it shouldn't be a bad shutter. They usually only quit after many years of use. I think Canon quotes 125,000 shots as the normal life of a shutter in a digital SLR.

My Canon is displaying - Err 99 what should I do?


Just found this info which should help diagnose the err 99 issues (info direct from Canon apparently)

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 20 minutes.
4. Insert only 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 so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -

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 faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being 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 is faulty and should be serviced.

My camera


This happens on the Canon DSLR s - the submirror has a pivot pin made of plastic that breaks off. The mirror box will have to be removed to replace the pin - about a $150 repair.
