Try using the "no flash" setting. It is still completely auto, it just won't fire a flash. It is the setting that looks like boxy "no sign" over a lighting blot on the settings dial, it is also the last setting.
Maybe you drop your battery and they have electronic components inside that could be spoiled, if is that the case, try to change the battery, it appeares to me that the ammount of current the battery is sending to the component is very low even thoe it seems to be fully charged that's why the camera is unable to display anything and the "busy" warning is blinking all the time, I hope you find this usefull.
If the flash fires a full charge(eg. in a dark environment) then this message will appear whilst it recharges. If the message appears all the time and you cannot take a photo there is most likely a problem. Try taking some pictures without the flash card to eliminate that first.
So I had fixed the problem this morning, since the warranty has expired, I opened up the flash to take a peak on the inner workings, and found that a wire had come loose, got out the soldering gun and repaired the connection and all is good.
Try going into the menu and turning off the lock for shooting without a lens. Then try firing it without a lens to see if it works. Very often a lens problem can cause the Err 99 message.
Also, check to make sure the pop-up flash is not stuck down. That could also cause it.
Unless you have used your camera a LOT, it shouldn't be a bad shutter. They usually only quit after many years of use. I think Canon quotes 125,000 shots as the normal life of a shutter in a digital SLR.
This was taken from another site:
My camera displays “bC” or “Err 99” when I try to take a picture. What does this mean? BC is an error condition in EOS film cameras, and means one of two things. It either means “battery check,” so try putting in a fresh battery, or it’s a general error condition of some type. If the battery is fine, have a look at the previous section for things to check, especially dirty lens contacts or lens compatibility problems with Sigma lenses. Error 99 is essentially the same error condition as BC, only on EOS digital cameras. The EOS D30 also had error codes 09 and 10, which are similar.
