Take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. or Before I reset it, take off the lens and put it back on.
i heard that some have problems with the lexar cards.

in short, format the card every so offten in the camera and see if that fixes it.
also
try a firmware upgrade if your 20D has highest version get this at canon website

Error 99 when using Quantum Transceiver


Error code 99 is a non specific error code a sort of catch all. Remove the lens and clean the contacts (lens and camera), remove the battery and the memory card. Leave the camera in this state for about 10 mins, enough time to discharge any build up of charge or static. Reinsert the battery and the memory card and reattach the (cleaned) lens switch on leave for 5 seconds and press the shutter button to see if this has cleared to problem.

What is error 99 in canon eos 20d


It's a frustrating catch all error and needs service.The camera may have any one of numerous issues or lens issues. If you have more than one lens, see if the error occurs with both lenses on. If not then it's a lens error. A camera repair facility can plug unit the camera and download a more accurate troubleshooting code. Royal Camera Service in Hanover Park, IL is good source for this problem. The replaced the shutter on my 20D when I got the error 99 code.

Canon 20D gone shutter crazy , clicking away on its own error code 99


The Canon 20 D is a fantastic camera but the weak point is the shutter it last about 70 to 80,000 actuation then causes a bunch of problems. In Canada it cost about $180.00 including the shipping to the repair depot to get it fixed.

I got error 099, before I was getting error 05. and the flash dos not open canon EOS 20D


I also get the error 99 message and cannot take any photos... I have been able to solve this problem by taking out the batterys and wiping down the connectors on both the batterys and the connecters in the motordrive with a lens cloth. keep the lens cloth on hand when shooting. It may be that either oils, or dirt has gotten onto the connectors. I hope this helps.

Cannon Eos 400D Err 99?


Error 99 is a NONSPECIFIC error message. It is almost always associated with the LENS. I first got this error on my EOS 20D whei I tried to use an older Sigma zoom lens (7 years older than the camera). I don't use off-brand lenses with my Canons. Try removing the main battery first followed by the time & date battery which is hidden in the battery compartment beside the main battery. This will reset your camera. Good Luck!

Err 99


this is what the canon people say to do for error 99


Read this!!!


The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.

Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.

I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked eaaa19b.jpgb9433a1.jpggood luck!! have a nice day :) :) :)

Error in body


Remove lens, CF card, and battery. Leave in a dry and slightly warm place for 24 hours. Clean lens contacts with a cloth or cue tip and eclipse/alcohol.
If the camera doesn't turn on after this, even without CF card and lens attached, then it needs to go to a Canon service centre. Don't tell them you got it wet, and maybe it will get repaired FOC.

Error 99


I get error 99 sometimes on my 20 D but it?s usually to do with a lens that is attached. Sigma lens have been known to cause error's. If it's not that or dirty contact on the lens then it could be a more serious problem. I would at least check it out with a canon dealer/repair centre.
