there is a problem on the internal mechanism on the lens, the best solution for that is to send this in for repair. Try to contact kodak technical support hotline at 1 800 235 6325 option 12 extension 1
also having same problem after 18 months of no problems. As well, camera will not read memory cards which I have used in this camera almost since new. Format card, still no read. Sometimes when I take first photo, lens retracts as though camera is powering off but then changes it's mind and is o.k.
Your camera performs a quick 'integrity' check before each shot and goes into error 99 mode if the lens in incompatible or has a diaphragm problem. ( it will also display e99 if the shutter or flash unit is not ok but this does not apply here ).
This is how you can check whether the diaphragm mechanism is ok : attach lens to your old camera and set camera to AV and set F stop to 16 . open back and release shutter and look through the back to see if your lens is closing to F 16. If it is closing fine then the lens is ok but is not compatible with your D400.
I bought two of these on clearance and gave one to my in-laws. She suspected that one of her kids may have dropped the camera or pushed in the lens. I don't remember which lens error number had shown up, but I dis-assembled the camera to find out what the deal was. If I remember correctly, there is a way to manually turn the gears to put he lens back out. I left the lens out and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Fair warning though. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to touch the contacts for the flash EVEN WITH THE BATTERIES OUT!!! God did it hurt like hell... unfortunately it is fairly easy to do and I must have accidentally done it about 4-5 times while messing with it..
