What should i do when error 99 occur in my digital photo camera rebel xti

hiMostly you can not do anything. But it has two thing you have to check the cause. More than 90% are come from shutter unit defective and rest of them are other circuit fail on the sequence of function.But There is another thing you have check is your lens. some lens has cause the error. Like 18-55, 18-135, 24-105 focal length lens are common cause lens. If you want to know more, just let me know.
Your local repair shop would charge around $95 to 235 on body; around $65 to 235 on lens depend on what they really want to charge.
thanks and best regard!

Hi I have a Canon 40D and it keeps popping up error 99. what is the issue and what is the solution?

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).

Have you formatted the memory card? This is required for a new card or a card used from another camera before use. It is also good practice to format the card every time you use it. This is done from the setup menu.

This is a common problem with D-90's. Nikon won't admit a problem, until they do not much can be done. I have to pull the battery to make my error message go away! I know this info doesn't help much, but your certainly not alone!

Nikon D90 battery reset

Seems as if you've killed the battery. You might try charging it again.

Does the camera work with a different battery? If so, I'd just buy a new battery and toss the old one.

Nikon D70 lens won't let me shoot

Remove the lens being careful not to get dirt/dust in the camera(very important).

Clean the metal contacts around the lens and on the camera where the lens and camera meet. Your error sounds like a lens communication error.

Again!!! Do Not Get dust/dirt/moisture/ anything in the camera.
