purchase an alkaline battery and replace with the old one, power up, wait for some time, select slideshow option, then back to camera view then power down..wait for 1 minute, power up again test your zooming results, if it is working well then all is OK......for more info. try to use a battery that is the same and use the same brand all the time for your camera......
I had the same problem with my 1 month old 40D! My temporary solution (though I already got a replacement) was to set the camera to P mode, and go to the Sensor Cleaning mode.. Choose Manual Mode, and clean now... Err99 will appear. You have to switch off the camera and TAKE OFF the baterry for few seconds. Once reinstalled, you can hear the click of the mirror resetting itself. You should be able to snap foto as normal for now.. I guessed its one of those mirror lock up that brought up this ERR99 **** thing! It annoys me to do this everytime I use my camera... especially after few days didn't use it..
A SANYO CAMERA less than 12 months old will still be covered by a warranty. It is not worth you trying to "fix" it as this will invalidate any claim.
Take it back to where you bought it and ask for a refund or exchange as the item "is not of merchantable quality"
Set the camera to clean ccd mode and carefully remove the lens. If you can't see the ccd but only the shutter then the shutter is sticking. I have this problem when not using the camera regularly.
My solution to free the shutter was just to set the camera to long exposure and just keep restarting the camera and taking a photo until the shutter moves. This problem happened from the very first time I had the camera run low on batteries at a few months old but at the time I never checked the shutter and the camera just restarted once and it worked.
i have the same problem with my olymus camera. its agravating because mine wont turn on and the lense is sticking out. my warrenty is up so im thinking about buying a new camera? im not sure because it cost more to repair.
I had a similar problem with my XTi. I swapped between two lenses and the issue stayed with the camera most likely because the AF logic is in the camera, and not the lens. What fixed my issue was when I took the lens off, and tried taking a picture to see how the mirror reacted. Sure enough, something was blocking my mirror from activating during the shot. I didn't see anything blocking, so I assumed it was "stuck". I moved the mirror, and after that, the AF worked fine when I put the lens back on. Not sure if this will help.
When you copy pictures to your computer you still have the pictures on your camera so there is need to clean them up my reformatting memory stick. This procedure will leave the memory stick clean and ready for a new set of pictures. Here is how you reformat the memory stick-:
1. Insert the memory stick to be cleaned/formatted in the camera
2. Turn the MODE DIAL to the SETUP position on the camera
3. Switch on the camera
4. Select the MEMORY STICK TOOL from the CONTROL BUTTON
5. Press the centre of the CONTROL BUTTON
6. Select FORMAT by using the down arrow and up arrow
7. Choose OK by moving the right arrow button
8. Finally press the centre of the CONTROL BUTTON and this will start reformatting the MEMORY STICK and it will ready for reuse.
I was having the same problem.. And since I could not afford to take it to the shop, I tried everything I could think of...
Then I fixed it!!
It seems that the slide door behind the shutter was stuck for some reason... If you remove the lens.. (make sure the camera is in manual mode)... snap a shot so the shutter is up.. then gently slide the panel in the back down....
Once I did that.. the camera was working again.... Hope this easy solution works for you guys....
