    Try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera. Does that help?

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume cleaning the contacts solved the problem.

How to fix error 001 in canon lens


The Canon Err 01 is called Lens communication.
The lens has lost communication with the camera, or vice versa. This can be caused by dirt or grease on the gold coated contacts. On the lens or in the camera.
Try cleaning the contacts, with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Don't use any sharp tools or force. To pinpoint where the error is, you could try to place another lens. If the error disappears most likely the first lens caused the problem. If the error stays, you should suspect the camera.
If you only have the problem with one lens, and the contacts are clean, contact a certified Canon repair centre.

The communication between camera and the lens is faulty


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting. I want you to let me know if the solution(s) suggested were of any value. Constructive criticism is welcomed.

Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful assistance.

This is a common problem with Canon SLR cameras. My suggested remedies are:

  1. Turn the camera off, remove the lens, gently blow on the contacts (gold dots/dashes) on the lens. Or you can wipe the contacts with a cloth lightly dampened (not wet) with rubbing alcohol.
  2. Reinsert the lens, turn the camera on.
  3. Still the same error?
  4. Open the battery compartment and remove the battery (while the camera is on.)
  5. Wait a few minutes and reinsert the battery.
  6. Still the same error - ship it off to Canon for service.

What does error 01 mean


Error 01: A communication problem between the lens and the body. Try cleaning the the area between the objective/Lens and the body. If that doesn't work, try another lens. If that doesn't work, try the first lense in another body, and if that works, it's most likely the body that's broken.

I have a Canon EOS, 1000D which I purchased in Feb 09. I have an error message coming up on the screen everytime I take a shot (which doesn't record). The error is a Err 99, "Shooting is not possible. Turn...


I did some digging and found that this error is most often a lens communication error. Are you, by chance using a non-Canon lens?

Try the following:

1. Remove the lens and take a picture without any lens on. If you get an ERR 99, then it is a camera issue and you will need to contact Canon for further troubleshooting or repair (ie. not the lens).
2. If you do not get the error with the lens off, try it with a Canon lens or any other lens. If no error, it is a problem with the original lens.
3. If the error occurs on both lenses, clean the lens contacts both on the lens and the camera (refer to your manual).

Hope this helps.

HI. Every I attempt to take a picture with my cam, I get a "Error 01" message. Please advise. Thank you


Err 01: LENS COMMUNICATION DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions: When electronic communication with the lens cannot be established, after the EOS D300D is powered ON or when the shutter button is pressed halfway. When the lens diaphragm cannot be controlled during shutter release.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Clean the electronic contacts on the lens with a clean, soft, dry cloth and check the mount interface switch on the body's lens mount for dirt or other damage. If this does not solve the problem, try another Canon EF lens or have the EOS EOS D300D examined by a qualified service technician. This error is similar to Error 84 on the D30.


rate me on this one...

thanks!

Nikon D70 lens won't let me shoot


Remove the lens being careful not to get dirt/dust in the camera(very important).

Clean the metal contacts around the lens and on the camera where the lens and camera meet. Your error sounds like a lens communication error.

Again!!! Do Not Get dust/dirt/moisture/ anything in the camera.
