Error code 0x57 appears after i snap a shot.


I've just solved the problem by firmware update and battery removal for 1 day. I prepared my camera for expensive repair in service: card was formatted, battery removed .. and then in service, when I put the battery back, my camera just worked :) Try it, I hope it will help everyone.

I have error code #99 on a canon eos 30d


Error 99 is Canon's default for several "connection" problems most common are dirty contacts between the lens and camera body. Another is the contacts in the battery compartment both the camera and the battery contacts should be cleaned.

The camera might not be able to read the memory card, download the pictures to your computer and format the memory card don't delete them format the card this function is found in the set up menu.

Formatting is one of the most important functions to keep the camera and memory card communicating AND is the most neglected function. Always format a new memory card and always format a memory card after downloading pictures to a computer. Format a memory card if it's been in another camera.

Cleaning the lens and body contacts can be done fairly easily with a clean pencil eraser, don't use a puffer on the body as you will blow dirt into the camera. With the lens removed hold the camera as much as possible with the lens opening pointed down and gently polish the gold contacts. Do the same with the lens contacts make sure both areas are clean and re install the lens to the body.

Possibly the most important "fix" is to update your camera's firmware. Go to Canon's web site (it can be a bit intimidating at first) and search through until you find the firmware updates for your camera. Download this generally they want you to download to a memory card then place the card into the camera and upload the new firmware updates.

The Canon 30D (in my opinion) is one of the best no frills, greatest working DSLR cameras Canon produced. Not saying the model's beyond are not it's just the 30D isn't loaded down with video functions. Great all around working camera, sorry my rant for the day.

Cheers have fun with your Canon 30D

"camera error" when i


Hello

Unfortunately a "camera error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a failure of the camera and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Sony dslr a200 camera error


Couple of things to try: 1. If you've downloaded the pics from your memory card, format it in the camera. 2. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons..leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

ERROR 99


if you have a DSLR and your'e getting this "error 99" it may be associated with the particular lens youre using. try turning off the camera and removing the battery, the lens, and the memory card. let it sit for half an hour. reinsert the battery only and depress the shutter button as if you were to take a normal picture. if error 99 occurs again, then the camera needs servicing. if it error 99 doesn't occur at this point, turn the camera off and install the memory card. format the memory card while it's in the camera and press the shutter button as if youw ere to take a normal picture again. if you see error 99, then the problem probably lies with the memory card. if it doesn't occur, turn off the camera and install the lens. again, power on the camera and press the shutter as if you are taking a normal picture. if the error occurs, then it's with the lens. try to clean the lens including the connection points both on the camera and the lens. if the error code still occurs, try different lens to narrow it down to which particular lens is giving the issue. if it happends with all the lens, then the camera needs to be serviced.

I recently purchased a Canon DSLR XSi and my computer doesn't recognize it and the printer doesn't recognize the SD card. I have installed the software, but.....


it depends what card you are using-if it's a sdhc card 4 gb or higher some products won't recognize the new high capacity cards-try to find a memory card reader designed for the new cards-sandisk makes them-and the printer if it's older may never support new card and may only work after you download and then send to printer
