    If you can, try a different lens on your camera, and/or try your lens on a different camera. Try to determine whether it's the lens or the camera that needs service, then have it serviced or replaced.

Hi mmarushack, in the manual page 132 it states that the F- - error means the lens is not attached or a non CPU lens is attached. If a older non CPU lens is attached select M mode. That would be on the right side of the lens mount as you face the front of the camera. The assumption is you have a CPU lens then I would suggest doing a reset of the camera. Open the terminal rubber flap on the left side of the camera. Just below the USB connector is a small push button. That resets the camera thus fixes you camera. If not do call Nikon at 800-645-6689

Lens connection may need cleaning, though you normally get error messages if the camera can't talk to the lens.

This seriously does work. I just took the battery out, placed it back in and when it was accessing I banged it (not even that hard) against my knee and it now can focus in and out. I almost can't believe that it worked, but it surely did.

Sigma lens error message aperture ring


Does this only happen with this lens? If other lenses work OK, then the problem is in the lens. If it happens with all lenses then it is in the body.

Try cleaning the contacts on the back of the lens and in the body mirror box with a Q-tip lightly saturated with alcohol.

How old is your lens? It may have a conflict with the newer camera body. Did it work right before?

I have an EOS Canon Rebel XSi. Every time I turn it on, error 99 pops up.


Error 99 is Canon's depository for electrical connection problems and a host of other electrical orientated issues. Take a new pencil eraser and gently clean the contacts on the lens (gold) more a polish then a scrub and also do the same with the electric connections on the camera body again more a polish then a scrub. Make sure that no eraser dust has entered the camera body and if so clean it out by using a puffer with the camera lens mount facing downward, that way the partials will fall out not in. Also while you have the eraser handy clean both the contacts on your battery and inside the battery compartment. Another thing is to download your pictures from the memory card onto your computer and format the memory card in the camera. If all that fails then go to the Canon web site and download the updates to your camera's firmware.

What I full expect though is that the camera body to lens connections have become dirty and just need a little attention.

Hope this works for you

I turn on my camera and it just shuts itself down


Then lens assembly could be stuck, or the battery could be low or weak. Make sure, first, that the contacts inside the battery are clean (clean them with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol). There's a couple of web sites that explain what things you can try to get it working, and they say about half the cameras can be made to work trying their suggestions:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Even though the title of this page is lens errors, it applies to "stuck lens", and has steps to take to try to fix it.
This site is for battery problems, which is the other thing that might be going on with your camera:

Try these things, and you have a good chance of getting the camera working again.

If none of those suggestions work, it could be a jammed lens. Try these steps:

Lens won't extend even though new batteries installed.


Two possibilities: one bad, one not so bad. If you've recently dropped the camera you've likely damaged the lens tube (housing), and the camera will require professional repair. Before you panic though, the problem that you described is frequently battery related. Make sure that your batteries are the correct type for the camera, and that they are fresh/fully charged. If the batteries are OK, the problem may be due to corrosion on the contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, wipe the ends of the batteries, and replace them in the camera. This cleaning process works about 90% of the time, and I hope that it cures your problem.

Lens error


This error... lens error.. can be the result of many abuses. If the lens is held back as it is extending, it can damage the tiny parts. If the lens is bumped while it is extended, it may damage the internal parts beyond repair. Sometimes the lens get off track as a result of a blow while extended.
If the camera is dropped, the lens mechanism can be damaged from the impact, even though it is not extended.
If you treat a digital camera with a lot of care, and put in a padded camera bag, you may extend the life of the camera.
