Error 99 when using Quantum Transceiver

Error code 99 is a non specific error code a sort of catch all. Remove the lens and clean the contacts (lens and camera), remove the battery and the memory card. Leave the camera in this state for about 10 mins, enough time to discharge any build up of charge or static. Reinsert the battery and the memory card and reattach the (cleaned) lens switch on leave for 5 seconds and press the shutter button to see if this has cleared to problem.

I have bought new camera, just tried it today and keeps saying error code 99? turn it off and back on and remove battery and reinstall, tried all of this and it keeps saying the same?

Error 99 is a catch basin for a number of problems I'm going to assume that because this is a new camera that you didn't format the memory card. Formatting a memory card makes it function perfectly with the camera it's being used in. Also after pictures have been downloaded to the computer you need to format the memory card, cleaning all the old pictures off the card and giving you a fresh clean medium to use to put new pictures on. You will see also that there is this little handy garbage can icon and this is or should be used only when you find you need more space on the card when you are shooting and not the way to clear the card. The memory card should always be formatted in the camera.

Fax machine memory is at 99%. How do I or do I need to clear some of the memory?

You did not indicate your model and manufacturer but on MOST machines the 99% would mean that you have 99% of your memory remaining. Meaning only 1% is used at this time. This would indicate that there is 1 document waiting to be sent, printed etc.
So I would say that you do not need to perform any reset.
Thank You for using Fixya.

On Model 1725 get message F1, how do I clear it, etc? John

CLICK HERE for your owners manual in PDF format.

F1 indicates a communication failure with the digital EEPROM (onboard memory).

Essentially you have a paperweight now.

The repair requires a replacement of the memory module, and from all accounts, that proprietary part is not sold.

I would also assert the repair to cost more than another unit (new, or used)

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Can not send more than 99 pages as PC fax.

Like every fax machine, there is a limit to how many pages it can keep in memory before needing to be cleared. Yours is apparently only 99. If you want to send more than 99 pages at a time without clearing the memory, i'd look for another printer.
