My lens to my Canon Rebel camera is no longer working. My son manged to pull the entire digital camera down causing it to fall off the table. It does not focus and when looking at it, it is not even when zooming in-or-out. Is this fixable ot am I doomed to replace the entire lens? Thanks.

sir just read this i think 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. I've shot numerous pictures with each lens and have
not gotten a single error 99 message. I'm psyched, I feel like I have a
whole new camera now.
Hello hemantp. This error code in this model indicates that the lens electrical contacts are dirty or slightly oxidized. To clean them you will need a common pencil with a clean eraser on the end and a lens cloth.
Detach the lens from the camera and hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are pointing down. Lightly "erase" their exposed surfaces and then clean them with the lens cloth to remove any debris.
Do the same with the gold contacts inside the camera body. Although this is a wee bit more challenging, you can do it by holding the camera so that the lens opening points down. That way no debris will fall inside as you clean. Joe
'Error 99' indicates some problem with
the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could
indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious
one like the breakage of USM cable. As a first step, you can try
cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the
lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body
facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the
lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If
the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an
authorized service center.
Hi there, as per your information i suggest you please reset the camera from camera Manu option. After that if its working well then fine otherwise its a problem of lens auto focusing. Reason of Dust or there is a guide pin in side the lens. Thats not working, for that you need to service your camera. Another chance is if your camera or lens fall down then there is a chance of mirror movement internally. So batter after reset if not solve the problem then visit service center. Thanks.
Error 99 is when the lens contacts aren't making good contact with the matching gold contacts on the lens opening of the camera body. An easy remedy is to take a clean pencil eraser and lightly clean the contacts on the lens and the camera body. Be sure to not let any eraser crumbs fall into the camera body.... Reinstall the lens and see if your error is cleared. K
Error 99 says on the canon site to upgrade your firmware, so I did that, still no joy. Then i read on this site to clean the contacts between lens and camera with a soft eraser...worked a treat. No more err 99 and I will be keeping the rubber in my kit!!
Take the lens off and the CF card out. Just with the battery in, see if the display works. If not, could be a faulty camera. If it does, switch off, insert the CF card, switch on. Do you see the display now? If not, CF may be faulty, replace it. If it does, switch off, add the lens, switch on. Does the display come on now? If so, looks like it is fixed, if not, looks like the lens is faulty - try removing the lens and cleaning the contacts on the lens and the camera body with a pencil eraser, do not let any debris fall into the camera body (hold it opening down is best).
The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.
