Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

EOS Rebel XT. About two years old. Stops working. NO power. Tried new batteries,cleaned contacts. Canon Lenses only. Occasional Code 99 but not necessarily at the same time. Tried all the normal fixes for the code. Problem is Very intermittent, but when it fails it's DEAD.Sent it to a repair shop. He had it for six weeks and it never failed. After i got it back,I probably shot close to 100 pics before it failed again. Don't know where to turn. Gary gstamberger@mchsi.com 260-249-0193

Err 99 on canon rebel xt 350 d


The Err 99 problem occurs due to dirty contacts between the body and the lens. I recommend cleaning the contacts. You can then turn Off the camera and then remove and reinstall the batteries to reset the camera to get the problem fixed.

It may be that the contacts on the lens is dirty, follow the directions, by using a clean pencil eraser (I would also suggest to use alcohol and clean the contacts after using the eraser). Also to remove the date button battery and the other batteries, then turn on the camera (with all batteries removed).
Then put the batteries back in.

Error 99 msg on new canon


there is a defective flexwire inside the lens or unfortunately the opening or fstops motor is defective. flexwire is easy to repair but a replacement motor is not available or hard to find, (the magnet inside the motor is slowly disintegrating causing it to stall)

Err 99


cleaning the contacts ought to be done using a pencil eraser(i am very specific about this)to fix this error
vigorously scrub the lens contacts with an eraser. Then  gently use the eraser to clean the camera contacts (holding the contacts face-down to prevent eraser rubber from falling into the body).Put the lens back on… and the camera shoudl be fixed!
Try this and post back before you rate..
