Its probably that you batterie is old and weak. the charger has more power. the camera use the maximum power absortion, when you turn on.
to first prove with a new batterie, or better if you have a friend that have the same camera , prove with here batterie, to see if the problem is in the batterie. if i have understand you, the camera turn on only with the adapter.. make this prove. if you want i will still help you.

Canon 30d with tamron af 70-300mm di macro lense showing error 99


'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. Alternately, it can also be a card error or camera error.

First remove the lens, battery and card and leave the camera like that for about 30 min. After that, insert a fully charged battery and switch on the camera. If the error still shows up, it is a fault with the camera and has to be serviced.
If not, turn the camera off and insert the card. Format the card in the camera and depress the shutter button. If it shows an error, the card is faulty.

If not,
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 error still shows up, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

My camera lense is stuck and my camera wont turn on


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u
rate me!!!

Sony Cybershot Lens Stuck inside!!!


I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!

My sony dsc h5 camera lens wont open/focus


This might be a problem with the lenses' mechanism... Maybe you hit the camera (having the lenses extended, eventually). You have to pay a visit to the local service.

And in the future, use the protection that came with the camera (the black cilinder). It protects the lenses and also offers you the possibility to mount the lens cap without having to switch off the camera.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

I have error 99 in my camera canon 400d


Error 99 is a general fatal error.
which includes the problems above mentioned by Q4SteveB but also many others.

It can be caused by a dicky shutter, problems with the CF card interface.

If cleaning and trying a different lens has not worked. Not definitive but as a rule of thumb...
If it letting you take one picture then giving error 99.. and the picture is saved to the card (but may just be black) this is most likely the shutter needs replacing..

If it takes a picture and gives error 99 but there is no picture on the card or the picture is 0KB its a CF interface problem.

If you get an error 99 when you plug in the USB its a USB interface error, you can try a different cable but unfortunately in most cases if another lens or cable wont work it needs repair

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.

Digimax i6 pmp SHUTTER problems!!!


Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
