Dust on Canon 350D

I own a Canon 350D and there is dust trapped somewhere. Having cleaned the camera several times I am unalbe to find this dust. It is not on the lenses. I am wondering if I am using the sensor cleaning option correctly. Any advice would be much appreciated or direction to somewhere I can get the problem sorted. Thanks

I have some real experience of finding dusts and even moulds in-between the Low Pass Filter and the CMOS. So no matter how you "clean" the sensor "surface", the things inside are not affected. Very tedious you have to take out the CMOS and open up the Low Pass Filter to clean them. Nothing high-tech!

Canon 350D error 99


Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card
Lens
Lens contacts....

A few things you can try.
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card may be bad.
Try another lens if you can
Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens)
I have heard Canon recommend upgrading the camera's firmware (go to Canon's website todownload
the latest firmware and follow Canon's instructions for the upgrade).
I saved the worst for last, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon for repair.
Good Luck

Error 99 Canon 350D


Usually this error comes up when the golden contacts between the camera body and the lens are dirty or defective. You can try cleaning it with appropriate contacts solution and a microfiber cloth or simply by scrubbing them with an eraser (be careful though not to let fall any gunk or gum dust into the camera). Never touch those contacts directly with your fingers.

Another culprit may be a defective CF card, try a different one and see if something changes.

If this doesn't solve the issue and your camera is still under warranty, i suggest you to have is serviced from canon. When out of warranty solving this issue is going to cost you several hundred dollars.
Let me know if this helped, best luck

Have a eos350d camera ,the flash is not popping-up but initially makes a short clicking noise as if its attempting to engage


If you're sure the click is from engaging the flash I suspect the spring or holding mechanism is stuck, maybe dust, dirt somewhere inthere. Can you lift the flash mechanism by hand after the click? If so, you can try and clean it with compressed air.

Black dot on my pictures.


This sounds like dust on the sensor. You'll need to clean it. Google the words "cleaning a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites explaining the procedure with pictures and info about where you can get the supplies.

Dust is something that will need to be addressed. Get a Visual Dust brush and learn how to use it. You can help reduce dust by 1) changing lenses with the camera body facing down and 2) turning off your camera when changing lenses.
