Error 99 is one irritant in many Canon SLRs. In general, it means there is some problem with the contacts. So try cleaning the electrical contacts of the body and lens with a pencil eraser.Please take care to hold the camera upside down while doing this so that the residue does not fall inside. Also take out the battery and clean the contacts. Now re-attach everything and try taking the image. Also check if your lens has an aperture ring and aperture lock. If so, lock the aperture ring at the minimum aperture. If these do not solve the problem, try updating the firmware to the latest one.

'Error 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

I have a Cannon Rebel XTI and i keep getting err 99


Make sure your firmware is up to date. The current version is 1.09 which did address a problem with live view that could cause error 99.
Here's the link http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eosdigital4/firmware.html


Also try removing your lens and putting it back on. Sometimes it is a bad connections between the body and lens that can cause this error.

Hi all
On most lenses the way to test if your old lens works on a cannon digital to set the camera to AV then set the iris to the small setting ie F16/F22 then use the stopdown button.
Things that might happen
1 The lens will close down OK
2 The error 99 will show,will need are rechip if avaliable
3 Nothing happens, will need a rechip

Q.Why will it work inside but not outside.
A. Inside the camera needs light so the iris is full open, outside the lens needs to close down and if not compatible it is unable to close down. will need a rechip
