Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I've used the same camera many, many times before with studio lighting without problems - suddenly, it has decided not to work anymore and I just get an 'Error 99' and no image taken. I changed the hot shoe - no difference - and then borrowed a friend's '400, which works perfectly, so the fault can only be with the camera. I carefully checked the settings I have on manual - it definitely should be working.
I have also tried cleaning the contacts on the camera flash interface in case it is a bad connection, but no joy. When I plug the hot shoe in, the lights flash in acknowledgement but that's it. Help, anybody?
Incidentally, I have a 300D but that wasn't an option on the pull-down product menu so I had to select the 350. Apologies for any confusion.
For reference, the firmware on the camera has been updated to 1.1.1 through downloading it from the Canon website.
Error 99 is the generic error message for something serious has gone wrong. Probably only recourse is a general service at £175 or thereabouts, but for that price of course you could buy another one from an auction site of your choice and still have change!
