Error message to turn camera off and then on again

This error message appears even before the first picture is taken. After taking a picture, it reappears.

The first time it appeared was when I tried out a Lexar Professional 4 GB 133x SDHC card, which was being sold to me by a reputable camera store.

    Just started getting this message. No change to the memory card or settings. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried taking the card out and removing the battery and trying again. I had an issue with one card - no different from the others I use Scandisk 2GB but problem has now gone.

Error message showing up is r03


r03 is NOT an error message. It indicates the number of remaining pictures that can be stored in the camera's built-in high speed memory buffer (before the camera will need to send them to the memory card). Each successive picture taken rapidly will decrease this r03 number by 1. Eventually the r01 will be on screen, and after that picture is taken, the camera will not shoot until the memory buffer has been transferred. This may take a few seconds, and then shooting can continue again.

Error message, cant take pictures


Camera needs to be serviced. This is a common problem with sony cameras. If you have any knowledge of electronic, you could take apart and clean and lube lens. If not sony will fix for a fee, go to the sony web site, they offer a repair service. This happened to mine, it cost $95 plus shipping costs to repair. Now it works great, for how long who knows.

Error 99 on 30D Canon


Had this problem before and i found this guide online

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.

I have error 99 in my camera canon 400d


Error 99 is a general fatal error.
which includes the problems above mentioned by Q4SteveB but also many others.

It can be caused by a dicky shutter, problems with the CF card interface.

If cleaning and trying a different lens has not worked. Not definitive but as a rule of thumb...
If it letting you take one picture then giving error 99.. and the picture is saved to the card (but may just be black) this is most likely the shutter needs replacing..

If it takes a picture and gives error 99 but there is no picture on the card or the picture is 0KB its a CF interface problem.

If you get an error 99 when you plug in the USB its a USB interface error, you can try a different cable but unfortunately in most cases if another lens or cable wont work it needs repair
