The flat printed cables inside the lens unfortunately develop small cracks over the years and this causes the lens to fail. The repair is NOT easy, you have to tear down the lens all the way to it's base components and replace the flex cable on the aperture diaphragm. The cable and the diaphragm are available online, but again it's not a simple repair and most people should not attempt it themselves.

The AF motor is hunting. Clean the contacts on the end of the lens and the camera body with a pencil eraser and try again.

My canon ds6041 displays err 99 when i try to capture light aur object in sun light.What should i do i'm using 70-21-mm lense


Usually this is cased by shutter failure or failure of the aperture unit in the lens. Try another lens and see if you get the same error message - that will tell you if the problem is in the camera body or lens

Bought june 2009 in june. rebel eso also with that package a cannon lens 75 to 300 used it 3 times on the camera code say err 01 clean contacts did that same old problem i also have a 3 year plan...


I'm not 100% sure of what you are saying. I gather you have a 3-year extended warranty? Error 01 is usually associated with failure of the IS system in the lens so it would most likely need to be sent to Canon for repair. I have only had one Canon service issue (nine years since my first EOS) and they provided an RMA for UPS return to them. I suggest you contact CanonUSA repair and request an RMA.

As a first step have you tried CAREFULLY (to avoid eraser bits getting inside the camera) rubbing the gold contacts on the camera and lens with a clean pencil eraser? That's one of Canon's recommendations. Good luck.
