Try gently cleaning the electronic contacts on the lens's mount with an eraser. This will remove any mild oxidation on the contacts. If this doesn't resolve the problem, then contact Tamron and ask if there are any issues using this particular lens with a Canon 40D.

SOURCE: Error 99 with a Canon

Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what 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 is 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). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hi, I have a canon eos rebel xs. the mirror is kind a dirty, can it be cleaned by me or need to have it cleaned at canon service centers?s I also have a Tamron Telephoto lens, when I do a full zoom in...


This is a digital camera and I suspect it's not the mirror that's showing dirt it's the sensor. If you are seeing small bits of dirt on your pictures then it's dirt on the sensor. I would suggest having it cleaned at a camera store or repair facility if you are not comfortable with doing it yourself. Cleaned improperly can damage the sensor and renter the camera pretty well useless. The dirt inside the Tamron lens I would also suggest cleaning and if you are getting an error message you may as well send the camera in for a complete cleaning. There are kits on the marked to clean the sensors but again if you are not confident that you can do this then sent it to people that can and do it on a regular bases.

Sp 550. zoom starts to come out on start up then clicking noise, screen shows zoom error then zoom retracts then powers off


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean both ends of the batteries, place them back in the camera and give them a full charge. This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

The lens may have malfunctioned. It could be jammed, one of the plastic moving parts is broken, or the motor has malfunctioned.

Camara not focusing/ zoom not working


Its an error code and shows problem of Lens mechanism.
Lens focus / zoom motor is stuck that's why camera gives out of focus image.
You need to replace Lens Assembly and it would cost you more then camera worth.
