Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm Lenses
My cannon rebel eos DS6041 displays error 99 when shooting with my wide angle lense. It does not do it with my other lense. Any suggestions?
'Error 99' indicates some problem with
the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could
indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious
one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

Cleaning contacts did the trick.

Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.
