Try to make some photos on macro mode with your lens and send to validae@gmail.com. I see what we can do for you. Meanwhile you may try to clean the contacts with alcohol and a paper towell and see if problem persist.

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.

Canon 28-105 giving Error message 1 with my 7D... never happened before?


What is the error message? Usually, it is because the contacts have eroded away, or not the correct lens for the camera type. If it's 999 .. usually that is contact error.. cleaning can help.. both at camera and lens. If it's ERR, sometimes, it is the Card... which runs the entire camera. check to see if it's card and go on line to see if there is a new firmware update for you make and model.

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.

17-85mm err99


My initial tests revealed it might be with this lens, the Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, might have been causing the error. Yet, I still have to do more rigid tests, as when I attached back this lens after rubbing off gently its gold contacts, error was gone again.

try it yourself.

thanks.

Lens not communicating with camera


contact problem or lens diaphram blades problem. First try to clean the contact with the pencil eraser. If the problem isn't solved. send it to canon it should cost you about 100.00 to repar.

Error 99


Assuming that other lenses function normally on the camera, the "Err 99" can be caused by a failure of the aperture component in the lens. Error 99 is a generic error, so unfortunately it does not indicate exactly what is wrong. There are other factors that can cause the failure, but there is a good chance that the aperture is not functioning correctly. You can try cleaning the electrical contacts on the lens, if this does not work you may need to get the lens serviced. Check with Canon, or check the web for other repair service providers.
