Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Error 99 message keeps popping up

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 have a canon EOS 400D DIGITAL error 99 pops up all the time even if I have to remove the battery and reassemble.Camera is relatively new say 10 months old and would have had just about 4000 exposures Help plez Err 99 appears immediatly after turning on the camera. Sometimes taken out the battery and the date/time battery solves the problem if I leave the date/time battery out, in this case I can take pictures until I turn of the camera. I will try updating the SW to 1.0.6. The camera is about 10months old and an USA import (XT rebell)

Instead of taking battery out, open and close battery department to reset camera.

Sounds like you have a major fault, you should raise this with Canon and prob send for repair

Error 99 message keeps popping up


Hi

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.

see http://www.mcvr.com/canon_digital_rebel.htm?gclid=CJqG4cvc05oCFRMhnAodCHUA3Q#shutter


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"):
  • Replacing the shutter on the Digital Rebel series requires more disassembly than most other repairs.
  • The estimate for shutter replacement is $180 on all EOS Digital Rebel models (depending upon the overall condition of the camera).
  • ERR99 error codes are related to shutter or mirror operation and are usually associated with a defective shutter. Cameras that have had heavy use may have shutters that have reached life expectancy and need to be replaced.

The only problem with SD card download stuff is that the LCD screen has to be working. If that is part of the problem, how can the instructions be followed?
