SOURCE: Canon 450D, ERROR 99 only when flash pops up

Err 99 usually means your lens contacts are dirty either on the lens itself or on the camera.

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.

SOURCE: Canon 450D is not being recognised by my computer

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

Regards,

SOURCE: The built-in flash on my Canon EOS 450D camera won't pop-up

Had the same issue and just tried this....and it worls [PS dont use the littel plastic hotshoe cover as this keeps the microswitch depressed]

SOURCE: card write protected

Check if the card is truly write protected (check the little slider on the SD card). Its possible it slid into lock position accidentally

I am getting this message on my EOS 450d, (camera's built in flash pop up was obstructed turn the power switch to off and on again). I have done this several times the flash wont pop up - can you please...


Sometimes the pop-up flash on the EOS range of cameras can get stuck. The EOS family have a very tiny micro switch under one blade of the flash hot-shoe.

Get a toothpick and manually pop the switch. It should clear your error, too.

Good Luck.

I got Canon EOS Kiss 450D (Japan). Recently, the problem i encountered is ERR 99. I have read an article that it might be with the body lense "connection" and some might arise from battery...


Canon's error 99 is a catch all for connection problems. You can clean the gold contacts with a pencil eraser by lightly polishing the surface and whip with a lens cloth not tissue. However after reading your description about the battery and charger I would tend to believe you have a battery problem. Before changing the battery see if the camera recognizes it and give a state of charge.

I would proceed with this problem with
Cleaning the lens contact with a new pencil eraser
Clean battery contacts in the camera the pencil eraser can be used her as well
Check state of charge with the battery and make sure it isn't leaking

If all of the above fails I would enter the Canon web site and update the firmware of the camera.
Then recheck the battery.

This should bring you back to a working camera

Canon EOS 450d not clicking on AF mode


this may have to do with the lens rather than the camera, try swapping the lens with another one and see if the same problem happens in AF mode with the new, borrowed lens, also remove lens and check that the gold connector between the two are clean carefully wipe with a dry q tip but be careful not to allow dirt to fall into camera body.

My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5mins


If it's an original battery, call Canon, if you've only charged it once, I expect the camera is still under warranty. I've had lots of dealings with Canon Photography, the usually give extremely good customer service.

If it's a cheap one you bought of ebay - that's why!
