Well it seems that it was a mechanical problem on the unit. doing it yourself and try to fix it, may not solve the issue. it is better to send it out for repair cause of the sensitive part that may damage if you will service it.

Hi

You need to clean the contacts with a dry cloth an alcohol swap etc. of the lens and body. Also try to do firmware update.

Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

    If the contacts have already been cleaned then you need to do a firmware update. If that does not work then I would suggest you to buy a new one.

    The price of the lens is approximately $200. Please contact the Canon People based in Belgium on the following link to get a new one instead of getting it repaired---

    Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

    Yes you are absolutely right. I have inadvertently quoted the rates of Quantaray 70-300mm that too not in Belgium. However, I suggest you that it will be better buy a new one instead of getting it repaired.

Canon 20D. Says "Err


Error 99 is a result of an electronic communication problem normally between the lens and the camera body.

Use a red pencil eraser to "polish" the contacts even if they look clean do it again.
Take care to keep dirt out of the camera and lens bodies.

Another thing is often times the camera firmware needs to be updated to move on from this.

Another thing is the CF cards? The 20D was in an era where pretty well the larges CF card was a 2gig,I use several 1gig however if you have updated your cards to say an 8gig the firmware just can't handle the card.

Okay moving on clean the lens and body, update firmware, make sure the CF card isn't beyond the camera capabilities and last if all that stuff didn't work the it's possible the actual sensor is really dirty and needs cleaning.

The worst case scenario is that the shutter has failed. The Canon 20D is only good for 60,000 actuation's.

Hope this give you a few options

Err 99


Hello hemantp. This error code in this model indicates that the lens electrical contacts are dirty or slightly oxidized. To clean them you will need a common pencil with a clean eraser on the end and a lens cloth.

Detach the lens from the camera and hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are pointing down. Lightly "erase" their exposed surfaces and then clean them with the lens cloth to remove any debris.

Do the same with the gold contacts inside the camera body. Although this is a wee bit more challenging, you can do it by holding the camera so that the lens opening points down. That way no debris will fall inside as you clean. Joe

Error 99 on EOS Canon 450D


This is what the people at the canon tech support say to do for error 99



read this!! :)

The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.

Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.

I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked



hope this works for you!!!! have a nice day!! :) :)

I have the same problem with err99


The lens contacts are oxidized or dirty. The contacts are used to communicate from the camera micorpocessor to the lens, etc.
Turn OFF camera.
Remove the lens
Using a pencil eraser, clean each contact on each lens and the camera body, taking care not to allow debris enter the camera.
Wipe contacts witha a soft cloth after "erasing".

This is an old trick from computer add-on cards.
See this discussion about the err99 error:

hope this works!

CF error


My canon xti had the same reading cf card error 99.
Since my camera is out of warranty. I had to find a way to fix it. After reading all possible solutions in this site, I looked at the pins (that used to connect to the CF card) and found out that one pin in the middle bent. That caused the problem. I used the tiny screw driver to bend that pin back to the original position. Inserted the card back and it worked. I felt so happy!!!! (Please make sure to have the battery removed while fixing...to be saved.)

Err 99


This probably isn't it, but just to be sure... Make sure you have the latest firmware loaded. I was getting constant Err99's with my 10D and a new Lexar 40x card until I loaded the latest firmware, even though the firmware notes mentioned nothing about addressing CF card issues. Now everything is fine.
