How to fix an error 99 on a Sigma 24-70 mm lens


The error 99 on your Canon is the last thing the camera can think of, if it really does not know what is wrong.
If you don't have the message when using a different lens, and the error keeps coming back with that lens, you are right it is in the lens. But again the camera can;t find out what.
The only thing you can do is make sure the contacts are clean and shiny and nothing os blocking free movement of all the parts on the lens. If you can't get it working correct, please contact a Certified Sigma service centre.

Have a canon rebel xs showing error 99 code Have tried cleaning contacts with eraser ... did not fix Tried sensor cleaning Formatted cf card a bunch of times Removing battery and reinserting helps...


Err99 is a catchall error code, and as the blog post you linked to states, it can be one of many problems.

Have you tried cleaning the contacts? Taking out BOTH batteries? (There's a button cell as well as the main battery.)

Finally, have you got the latest firmware version? The XS is currently at version 1.0.5, which was released in April of this year. You can download it here.

Also, could check this link: 50mm-lens-contact-points/

Hope helps.

error 99 comes in canon when the lens contacts are dirty, remove the lens from body and clean the golden contacts ,with a pencil rubber eraser, both on the camera and the lens as well.there is a firmware update for 1000d recently released, available free on canon site, with detailled instruction ho to upgrade camera firmware.
if you find problem to upgrade just comment i will try to help.
even if this dosent solve try a different lens and see whether it is ok.
if at a rare case this dosent solve your problem the internal flexible strip inside camera is broken and needs professional service from canon or good repaire center

Have a brand new EOS 100D with Canon image


Have you actually cleaned the contacts or are you just looking at them and they "look" clean? Clean them with a cotton swab lightly dampened in rubbing alcohol.

I have the same problem with err99


The lens contacts are oxidized or dirty. The contacts are used to communicate from the camera micorpocessor to the lens, etc.
Turn OFF camera.
Remove the lens
Using a pencil eraser, clean each contact on each lens and the camera body, taking care not to allow debris enter the camera.
Wipe contacts witha a soft cloth after "erasing".

This is an old trick from computer add-on cards.
See this discussion about the err99 error:

hope this works!

"no lense attached" error message on my sony a200 with a sigma 70


It seems that you may have an older sigma lens which does not have the appropriate electrical connections. Sigma can modify this for you if you contact them, and I believe the cost is reasonable. Although some lenses look very similar, there are electrical differences between earlier and newer lenses, even though they may fit on to your camera mechanically,
