SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: have a canon 17-85mm USM lens. when taking photo

That's a really odd fault and to be so specific in focal ranges is a further oddity which makes me wonder if it's the mount having a slight bit of movement (slop) in it.

I have that very lens and use it regularly about a year ago I sent it to Canon for some minor service when it came back it had a different "feel" the lens was tighter in operation.

Would it be possible you need to clean the gold contacts on both the lens and body (I know you said it wasn't the contacts) with a red rubber eraser making sure not to get the rubber dust into the sensor area. Then watch the lens as your shift through your focal lengths to actually see if the lens is moving slightly between the lens and body. Make sure the lock is in tight with a distinct click, if all this fails then I'm sure a trip to Canon is in order, it's a great lens and worth the repair.

My Canon EOS Rebel XS only takes pictures indoors (ERR. 01)


You didn't say which shooting mode you're using, but I'd bet you're in Manual mode and have dialed in a completely wrong aperture/shutter speed combination for bright lighting conditions. For example, 1/60th of a second and f2.8 in bright sunlight would be "burning out" your image, so the camera may be giving you an error message. Try using AUTO or PROG setting and see if the problem persists. If it does, try a different lens. You may have an incompatible mount, or one of the contacts may be damaged. If all else fails, try your lens on another Canon camera.

Error 01 in canon eos 5d


Err 01: Lens to body communication error
1.The camera to lens communication is somehow being interfered with could be a problem within the lens itself, possibly the camera body, or something as simple as a smudged fingerprint on the lens mount contacts,
2. Check the lens and the contacts
3. Also check below link if you need a canon eos 5d service manual

Hi sometimes it takes a picture with no problem but sometimes I get err 99 or err 01. Any ideas?


Hi! Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

According to Sigma, your lens should be fully compatible with your camera although there will be the usual 1.6x crop factor as the lens is designed for a full frame sensor. This would not cause your Err 01 fault though so you should return the lens to your dealer for refund or exchange. Failing that, consider claiming on Sigma's one year international warranty. The warranty is ONLY valid if your lens was supplied with the Sigma Warranty card. All new Sigma lenses supplied through official resellers include the Warranty Card. You can find more details about where to send your lens for a warranty repair by clicking here.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my reply.

HI. Every I attempt to take a picture with my cam, I get a "Error 01" message. Please advise. Thank you


Err 01: LENS COMMUNICATION DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions: When electronic communication with the lens cannot be established, after the EOS D300D is powered ON or when the shutter button is pressed halfway. When the lens diaphragm cannot be controlled during shutter release.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Clean the electronic contacts on the lens with a clean, soft, dry cloth and check the mount interface switch on the body's lens mount for dirt or other damage. If this does not solve the problem, try another Canon EF lens or have the EOS EOS D300D examined by a qualified service technician. This error is similar to Error 84 on the D30.


rate me on this one...

thanks!
