    my shutter will not close and it showed an error. I turned it off and took out the battery. It will now not turn on and the shutter is still open I really need help. I really dont want to send it in for a repair if I dont have too. It costs $150.00, yicks.

    I tried all the suggestions but nothing worked. The shutter did start working again but only until we got to one of our big school events, the cheerleading tournament, and it quit again. That was the end. I put it in for repair this weekend, $224.00, but have to have it soon for the next Chincoteague pony roundup for our website, www.wildponytales.com. Hated to put out the money but didn't see a choice. - Maelin

The shutter is in the lens. Do you mean the mirror? If the mirror is locked up, was it done by selecting "Sensor Cleaning"? If so, it could be as simple as removing the battery.

It sounds as if this camera needs repair. Call Canon at their website under support then repair. You will find a toll free number. Call them, explain the problem.

Snapping problems


You may be experiencing "shutter lag". When you take a picture, you should press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS.

Installation of this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

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.
