I was getting ready for a trip to hong kong and bought a new cf card. When I put it in the camera came back with a err99 replace cf. Well after reading all there is to know about this problem i was all upset. Well at 2 a.m i went for it and I fixed the problem. One of the pin's was out of whack( it was very hard to see). I got out my small eye glass tool and gently separated the two pins....and presto it worked! It took 1 second and the problem was fixed. I am not an expert but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Error 99


Error 99 is sort of a catch all error code. So it can mean a few things might be wrong.

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 a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If it does, then the camera should be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of
steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.

If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.

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 should be serviced.

If you need to have it serviced go to the caon webpage and click on support. Try calling one of the support numbers or if available the live web help. They will then tell you how to get the camera to them and what to expect. I've found them to be real good to deal with which is always nice when you have a problem.

Canon 5d cannot format cf care


Hi there, did you check the card itself? SD cards have a locking switch on the side. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Put it back in the camera and see if that helps.

Nothing works!!!!!!!


Hi
Really sorry to hear all this. The Canon 5D is a wonderful piece of kit and it is not good news to read your problem. It really does sound like the unit is having a multitude of problems. This could be resulting from electical failure inside the camera. From reading through your problems you have passed the Error 99 as well. Generally this would mean hardware faults of some sort. Solutions range from chaging the CF card to Batteries to cleaning the contacts. Clean the contact is one chief remedy and cause of the Error 99 after the 'quick' fixes.

I would say try this again but this time use a rubber on the end of the pencil. Be gentle and careful not to get any dirt into thedody of the camera. Clean all contacts on the 5D Body and on all the lenses. Should this not work it may well be the case that the camera has circuit board problems.

Below is a little guide to help out which was in response to Error 99 from Canon. Hope it does. Again sorry to hear of these troubles. Canon should be more Pro active in this competative world.

It may help some
of you isolate the problem before you post a comment/question.
