    I have a Canon EOS Mark II can got the same Error code 99 twice now in one week. The first time I thought perhaps the battery was low, but have fresh battery in the camera and got the error message. It locked the camera up and eventually let me take another shot after about 30 seconds.

Canon 350D error 99


Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card
Lens
Lens contacts....

A few things 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 may be 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)
I have heard Canon recommend upgrading the camera's firmware (go to Canon's website todownload
the latest firmware and follow Canon's instructions for the upgrade).
I saved the worst for last, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon for repair.
Good Luck

I am on vacation in Mexico with my Canon digital Rebel EOS, which is about six or seven years old. In the last day or so, I have been having problems shooting photos. I turn the camera on, point, focus and...


I have read quite a lot about this infamous Error 99 on the Internet. Rather than try to summarise or duplicate the information here, I'm going to point you to someone who's already done just that, from bitter experience, I think! There's a very comprehensive essay about the various possible causes of Error 99 here (follow link).

Camera says card write protected


I just figured it out- on my memory card there's a small "switch" on the left hand side that you can slide up and down. Make sure that this is up the top, not down towards where it says Lock. If it's down, this makes the card Write Protected.

Canon Rebel Xt EOS Err 99


Error 99 is a "catch all" error that has several causes. It could be that your battery is not fully charged, especially if it is a generic, non-Canon battery. Charge for at least over night even if the charger says it's full. If that's not the cause, switches inside the camera will have to be cleaned by a repair shop.

First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not constantly fighting with settings missing great shots. Also, in manual, BULB is simply one of the settings and can't be turned off. It can only be 'not selected'.

Best of luck!

Error 99 Code on 5 month old Canon 40D


error 99 can be several things. Try the following. Check that the contacts on the lens housing are clean if not clean them with a swab of denatured alcohol available at walmart. also if there is extremely cold weather your shutter could be creating the error. Try using a blow dryer and on the warm setting warm up the camera with the lens off. Blow around the mirror area. I know it sounds silly but it has worked in the past. Good luck.
