Question about Canon Digital Rebel XSi Digital Camera

1 Answer

Err 01 on Rebel XSi

I turned my camera on one day about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and got Err 01 when I tried to take a picture. Swapped lenses, same error. I cleaned the contacts, no improvement. Sent the camera in to Canon, and they replaced the contacts in the camera. I got it back today, was able to shoot 4 photos, and suddenly the error came back. Again, swapped lenses and same thing. What's the deal?

SOURCE: Can lenses be swapped ?

The FT lens mount system (FL system) is not the same lens mount used on today's Canon EOS cameras (EF lens mount). The FT/FL system was used for a very short time in the 1960s, and was replaced by the FD lens mount system. Canon switched to the EOS/EF system in the late 1980s/early 1990s. So the lens will not fit on a Digital Rebel, and because it's 2 generations away from the lenses that do fit I don't think there was ever an adaptor made. Sorry!

SOURCE: camera xsi rebel 12.5 megapixel won't focus with

Most entry level SLR cameras will struggle to focus in low light, especially with the kit lens. By rights the flash should popup and emit a flash pulse to help focus. This is called focus assist. You might have to consult the manual to check if this function is turned on or not.

SOURCE: My Canon Rebel XSi will not auto focus.

Actually what I found to solve the problem was to first set the lens in "MF" and practice taking a picture manually to see if that would work. When I did this, I discovered that the fine tuning portion of the lens was somehow stuck mechanically. I heard a loud click as I turned it. That was all it took to fix the focusing mechanism on the lens. Then I set to "AF" and Voila, the camera worked just fine.

Error 99 when I turn my canon reble xsi on The screen says "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to off and on again or re-install the battery" I have done all of the above...


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 choosing Fixya!

From working with third party lenses in the past what I've found is that Canon doesn't give up the "chip" technology so the older lens can not talk to the newer cameras. I suspect that Canon does this to promote their lenses over the competition. You might be able to send the lens to Sigma and have them re-chip it and have a great lens again.

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.

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.
