ERROR 99 is an indication that there is a communication problem in the camera. It is most often an indication that the shutter needs to be replaced, but it can be the result of other problems. All digital cameras occasionally need to have the shutters replaced. In the days of film cameras, it was rare to wear out a shutter because the cost of film and developing limited the number of times the shutter was cycled. With all those ones and zeros being considered "free" in digital cameras, it is not uncommon to take several hundred or more photos in a day. Even with a live-expectancy of 50.000 to 100,000 cycles, the shutters in digital cameras do reach the end of their life and need to be replaced.

I have read quite a lot about this infamous Error 99 on the Internet. Rather than try to summarise or duplicate the information here, I'm going to point you to someone who's already done just that, from bitter experience, I think! There's a very comprehensive essay about the various possible causes of Error 99 here (follow link).

My Canon 40D suddenly came down with the dreaded Error 99 for no apparent reason. I have tried all the usual, battery, memory card, lens, but no luck. Even on the bulb setting the shutter won't stay open....


Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thanks

Hello, my EOS 350D digital camera won't focus. The auto focus isn't working.... If it does try to take a photo then it comes up with and "error 99". Is there a way to reinitialize the camera or fix this...


'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.

CF AND 99 error.


Hey mus326,
According to the manufacturer a cf error code means there is a problem with your cf card, and error code 99 is a general error code which is often caused by using a lens other than a Canon lens. When formatting the cf card make sure you are formatting the card in the camera, and not using a computer to format the card. If you still can't get the camera to work I would suggest you have it looked at by an authorized service center.

Sincerely,
Allan

My camera is making me sad :-(


This was taken from another site:
My camera displays “bC” or “Err 99” when I try to take a picture. What does this mean?
BC is an error condition in EOS film cameras, and means one of two things. It either means “battery check,” so try putting in a fresh battery, or it’s a general error condition of some type. If the battery is fine, have a look at the previous section for things to check, especially dirty lens contacts or lens compatibility problems with Sigma lenses. Error 99 is essentially the same error condition as BC, only on EOS digital cameras. The EOS D30 also had error codes 09 and 10, which are similar.

I hope that info helps.
Good Luck!
