Question about Canon EOS 30D Body Only Digital Camera
I continue to get error 99 after I take a picture. I have taken the battery out and put it back in, but that does nothing. I can't imagine a 1 year old camera that gets used once a month could have shutter problems. What is causing this and how can I make it go away? Thank you, Lauren
This is what the people at the canon tech support say to do for error 99
read this!! :)
The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.
Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.
I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked
hope this works for you!!!! have a nice day!! :) :)
