Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
My camera (Canon eos Rebel) has error 99 message keep popping up. I turned the camera off and on and i took the battery out. Taking the battery usally lets me take one picture before having the message pop up. And i've tried cleaning the gold contacts. Nothing has worked so far so please help!
I just read that the error 99 problem is a shutter failure and the shutter will have to be fixed. The cost is about $180.
ERR99 (error 99) is an indication that there is a communication problem in the camera. It is most often an indication that the shutter needs to be replaced, but it can be the result of other problems. All digital cameras occasionally need to have the shutters replaced. In the days of film cameras, it was rare to wear out a shutter because the cost of film and developing limited the number of times the shutter was cycled. With all those ones and zeros being considered "free" in digital cameras, it is not uncommon to take several hundred or more photos in a day. Even with a live-expectancy of 50.000 to 100,000 cycles, the shutters in digital cameras do reach the end of their life and need to be replaced.
Shutter replacement (usually associated with error code "99"):
