My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5mins

My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5 mins. I've only charged it once fully, and when I recharged it fully again it runs down in 5 mins. The red light on the charger changes to green in a few mins so appears to charge.

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!

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

Mine is over a year old. I typically need to charge it once a month if not in use and otherwise after about 800 shots without flash or 300 shots with flash.

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.

Canon Rebel Xt EOS Err 99


Error 99 is a "catch all" error that has several causes. It could be that your battery is not fully charged, especially if it is a generic, non-Canon battery. Charge for at least over night even if the charger says it's full. If that's not the cause, switches inside the camera will have to be cleaned by a repair shop.
