I keep getting error 99 message


Error 99 is common error on Canon cameras. Make sure the battery is freshly charged. Take the battery out, the compact flash card out, and the attached lens off of the camera. Leave the camera set for a while for the capacitors to bleed off. Around a half hour would be good. Next re-insert the battery and push the shutter button as if you were taking a picture. If you get an Error 99 then, you can't fix the trouble and Canon will have to do it. If you do not get an error 99, power the camera off, insert the compact flash card, power the camera back on and press the shutter button again. If you get an Error 99, the trouble is in the compact flash card or its connector. Try a different card. If you do not get an Error 99, power the camera off, a lens on it, power the camera back up, then press the shutter button once again. If you do not see an Error 99, the problem is no longer in the camera. If you do see an Error 99, power the camera off and remove the lens. The problem is probably in the contacts on the camera or the lens. Clean the contacts by holding the camera carefully with the lens opening down so it will not allow dirt to get inside the camera. Take a cotton swab dipped in alcohol and clean the gold metal contacts well, Dry the contacts with a tissue. Next hold the lens with the contacts down and repeat the process on the contacts on the lens. Be very cautious not to allow lint, dust, or alcohol to get into the camera body or into the lens. Some people use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts but you have be very careful not to let particles enter the camera or lens. This should clear your trouble, if the camera passed the first step of troubleshooting.

The eye of the lens won't close anymore and keep saying to turn the power on and off again, what should I do?


You might try removing the battery for a minute or two to reset the camera. You may lose any special settings in the process. After reinstalling the battery, try turning the power on and off again.

Dropped my camera and now the lens won't retract back in. When I press on the screen says lens error M425-12 (7f80). Can this be fixed and should I take it to a camera repair shop? Thanks


It could be one of two things, you bend the lens when dropped or the pins in the lens has become loose and are stuck.
You can try:
Taking the battery out for about 5 minutes and putting it back in to reset the camera. Also you can try hold the power button down and the ok or select button to to reset it. Also can hold the power and the menu button to try and force the lens out to dislodge the pins. If not,

The funny the is that I would have you drop it again on a carpet but on the opposite side to see if you can dislodge the pins from being stuck, try and have it land flat on its back from a decent height.
If the lens in bent you will have to bring it to a repair shop to have it fixed but it usually costs as much as a new camera.

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa

Turn camera on, lens comes out, goes back in ,and says lens error.


try these fixes

1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable nimh 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If using rechargeables, and they're more than a year old, consider purchasing new rechargeable batteries as they may not be providing sufficient power to startup the camera. If new batteries didn't work, try pressing and holding the 'Function' or OK button while turning the camera on.

2.If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

3.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots.

4.Insert the cameras audio/video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fix 3 as a means to provide extra power to help to this fix. Reinsert the cable only after tapping the camera.

I have a fuji A100 10.0 megapixil digital camera. am getting zoom error message and cant get camera to do anything..can you help


Owners manual says "zoom error" indicates a camera malfunction. But, try this, gently grab the lens, pull it out as far as it will go until fully extended. While keeping it extended turn the lens to the right until you hear a click. Once you hear the click, release the lens and turn the power button on and then back off again. This should take care of the problem. A word of warning. ALWAYS make sure your fingers do not touch the front of the lens when you power on the camera. Even the slightest bit of obstruction seems to make the problem reoccur.
Also, sometimes you may have to try several times until you finally heard the click, so please don't give up on it, just keep trying. This will work and it will save you a lot of time and money having it fixed.

My EX-S5 says lense error


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

I wiggled the lens a bit and it clicked and then the camera started working again. The lens is a little wobbly now, but it works fine.
