    I have dropped (!) my eos300d and now I am getting err o2 when switched on.

    Without a cf card I can read the menu and adjust settings, but it reads insert cf card.

    As soon as cf card is inserted I get the error message again.

    Any suggestion?

I STARTED RECEIVING AND ERR O5 AND MY CAMERA WAS DELAYING ON POWERING UP AND THEN ONE DAY IT JUST NEGLECTED TO POWER UP... PLZ HELP I MISS MY CAMERA!!!!


Err 05 mean that the flash cannot popup. Try to help the flash to pop up when you press the flash button on the front of the camera.
If that works, clean the flash unit from dust and smear or whatever is blocking the flash from popping up.
If your camera is not powering up anymore then there might be a fuse blown inside the camera because of the failing flash.

Canon 450D, ERROR 99 only when flash pops up


Err 99 usually means your lens contacts are dirty either on the lens itself or on the camera.

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
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 only 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 so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
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 faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being 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 is faulty and should be serviced.

Canon Camera Rebel XTi reads error 05 and the flash will not pop up


Err 05 means: Something obstructed the built-in flash's pop-up operation. Turn off the main switch and turn it on again.

Prepare to press the flash request button with your left hand. With your right hand, position your thumb and finger to gently pry up the flash head, perhaps using fingernails. Push the button and pry. With that help, it should pop up.

Hi - I have a Rebel XT - and my built-in flash won't work - and i get an ERR 05 message. What can I do?


Dear joefrisco:

An ERR 05 message indicates that the camera's flash pop up mechanism has encountered a problem due to either an obstruction (such as your hand or something blocking it), a jam (impact damage), or an electrical failure.

Try the following steps, in order, to try and resolve the issue. If nothing works, the camera will have to be sent in for service (call Canon Tech Support @ 1-800-828-4040):

1. Turn the camera off. Ensure that nothing is blocking the pop
up flash. Turn your mode dial to one of the Creative Zone
modes (P, AV, TV. or M). Now turn your camera back on
and attempt to take a flash shot. You will need to manually
press the flash button to do so.

2. Turn your camera on and perform a hard reset by pressing the
MENU button, tabbing over to the Set Up 2 menu tab and
selecting the option "Clear Camera Settings / Clear All
Camera Settings" options, and then removing the camera
batteries, date/time battery, and memory card for a period
of approximately 2 minutes. Then reinstall all items, turn
your camera on, reset the date and time and perform step
number 1 above.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Getting "busy" display on all modes except no-flash mode...


The "Busy" code will be on when the camera trys to use a flash and waiting for its charging action. Upon completion of charging the mechanism returns a signal to the camera to fire the shutter.

That means now your camera has something wrong on the flash unit and the camera waits for some certain time frame to finally determine it cannot complete a photo-taking command.

An "ERR 99" denotes that this kind of error has not been encorded explicitly and needs investigation services.

try battery out for 10 seconds for full reset if that does not work.
