Just another Canon EOS camera i guess! A pencil eraser and/or some denatured alcohol should do the trick for the contacts. Incidentally, how did you get that error?did you switch lenses while the camera was turned on?

    oh! well.. then its got nothing to do with cleaning.. Switch off the camera. Detach the lens and re-attach it. It should work almost all of the times.If this doesn't work you should perform a hard reset on the camera(remove the battery and put it back in).And Remember you should ***** switch lenses when the camera is powered on!

    On Canon eos just reset the lens or turn the camera off and on, and everything should be fine.

    You can get this error message also when lens are not mouted in the right way, in this case mount lens properly and restart machine.

    Ofthen there is ** need for cleaning the contact when you get this kind of message. Try just popping the battery out for five seconds, and then pop it back in, sometimes it works. In any case, if the lens is mounted properly, try to reset the machine.

    If you're getting the error five times a day, something is definitely wrong, and if resetting, cleaning and checking the lens connection and batteries doesn't help, it's time to call Ca**n.

Busy and or Error 01


For error message 01 the manual says: Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean lens contacts.
Solve: Clean the electrical contacts on the camera and lens and use a Canon lens.
SO if you are using a different lens or a non Canon lens this could be what is wrong.

If you never changed a lens, it still can be that something went wrong in the communication between the camera and lens. Just careful remove the lens and with a dry and lint free cloth, clean all contacts on the lens and in the camera. While working on the lens, close the camera with the camera cap, or put the camera face down.
Don't use anything sharp while working on a lens or a camera.

Err 01....communication between lens and camera is faulty.Please clean the lens contact...this is the error message...please say a solution..


The contacts are the little gold coloured metal squares that touch between your lens and the body. Clean them with isopropyl alcohol (moistened glasses wipes work well) and see how you go.

What does error 01 mean


Error 01: A communication problem between the lens and the body. Try cleaning the the area between the objective/Lens and the body. If that doesn't work, try another lens. If that doesn't work, try the first lense in another body, and if that works, it's most likely the body that's broken.

Canon 400D error code 01


reset camera by removing battery completely for about 10 seconds.
otherwise, time for service.
sounds like a processor board issue.
you can use a contact cleaner sparingly, available from frys electronics or any other electronic reseller like radio shack.
good luck

Canon err 01


This error means "Communication between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts." If you are using the same lens on both cameras, the problem is with the metal contacts on the rear of the lens where it communicates with the camera body. You can gently clean these contacts by using a clean pencil eraser. Make sure you hold the lens "bottom down" as you clean it so that the eraser debris falls to the table instead of inside the lens!
