Remove lens, CF card, and battery. Leave in a dry and slightly warm place for 24 hours. Clean lens contacts with a cloth or cue tip and eclipse/alcohol.
If the camera doesn't turn on after this, even without CF card and lens attached, then it needs to go to a Canon service centre. Don't tell them you got it wet, and maybe it will get repaired FOC.

Canon 20D. Says "Err


Error 99 is a result of an electronic communication problem normally between the lens and the camera body.

Use a red pencil eraser to "polish" the contacts even if they look clean do it again.
Take care to keep dirt out of the camera and lens bodies.

Another thing is often times the camera firmware needs to be updated to move on from this.

Another thing is the CF cards? The 20D was in an era where pretty well the larges CF card was a 2gig,I use several 1gig however if you have updated your cards to say an 8gig the firmware just can't handle the card.

Okay moving on clean the lens and body, update firmware, make sure the CF card isn't beyond the camera capabilities and last if all that stuff didn't work the it's possible the actual sensor is really dirty and needs cleaning.

The worst case scenario is that the shutter has failed. The Canon 20D is only good for 60,000 actuation's.

Hope this give you a few options

This is a basic fix, but have you removed the lens from the camera body and reattached it all? Check all of the connections while you're in there. Hope this helps =]

I got error 099, before I was getting error 05. and the flash dos not open canon EOS 20D


I also get the error 99 message and cannot take any photos... I have been able to solve this problem by taking out the batterys and wiping down the connectors on both the batterys and the connecters in the motordrive with a lens cloth. keep the lens cloth on hand when shooting. It may be that either oils, or dirt has gotten onto the connectors. I hope this helps.

Hi there i have a auto focus problem. i used mt 50D for the first time on saturday, after about 100 shots Err99 appeared, i turned the camera off and took the battery out an the error message never occured...


The camera is having problems with your lens and this is why it goues into the error mode. Try first cleaning the interface contacts on the lens ( see enclosed pic ) . If this does not sort the problem out then the auto focus motor ( or related hardware ) inside the lens will need attention. Also try other lenses to see whether it is only the lens ( I very seldom see this sort of problem cause by the body ; it is always the lens that gives this sort of trouble )db49ae2.jpg

Err 99


this is what the canon people 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 eaaa19b.jpgb9433a1.jpggood luck!! have a nice day :) :) :)

Error 99 in body


Hi
If you have tried different cards, batteries etc. try cleaning the contacts.

1. Get a pencil with a rubber on it.
2. Take of the lens of the camera and clean the little connectors buy using the rubber on the end of the pencil, brush of with a camera brush. Be gentle and try not to brush dust etc into the camera body.
3. Do the same with all the connectors on all the lenses you have. Do the same to the connectors on your battery.

If this has not helped and you have indeed tried new cards and different batteries you will need to take it into a Canon dealer.

Hope that helps.
