Question about Canon Cameras

2 Answers

I have a canon eos 20d that has become permanently attached to a canon 75-300 zoom lens. I cannot detach the lens and fear if I force it it will break the camera and/or lens. The lens is more than 5 years old, and camera 2 years old.

Normally after a while the seal can get stuck at the camera.
Just make sure the camera is a little warmed. Put in the sun for 30 minutes and than twist. Heat normally makes the seal sweat a little and makes losening easier

My canon 550 d camera lens dose not zoom autormatically


a 550D is a detachable lens camera and will not auto-zoom (it has a rubber ring that you turn to accomplish this with most lenses). are you sure you have an EOS 550D, or did you mean auto-focus?

What is error 99 in canon eos 20d


It's a frustrating catch all error and needs service.The camera may have any one of numerous issues or lens issues. If you have more than one lens, see if the error occurs with both lenses on. If not then it's a lens error. A camera repair facility can plug unit the camera and download a more accurate troubleshooting code. Royal Camera Service in Hanover Park, IL is good source for this problem. The replaced the shutter on my 20D when I got the error 99 code.

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

The 17-85mm lens on my canon 50d lens will not zoom in or out--


There is a lock on some of the OEM Cannon lenses underneath the lens. I didn't know it was there until having it for a year. Check to see if you have one and also remove and reattach the lens several times. You can try going to Ritz camera or Calumet to see if they can help you. Ask them who their Canon expert is. blessings!

Cannon Eos 400D Err 99?


Error 99 is a NONSPECIFIC error message. It is almost always associated with the LENS. I first got this error on my EOS 20D whei I tried to use an older Sigma zoom lens (7 years older than the camera). I don't use off-brand lenses with my Canons. Try removing the main battery first followed by the time & date battery which is hidden in the battery compartment beside the main battery. This will reset your camera. Good Luck!

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed


Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:

Hope this helps!

Connection Problem


I too have a Canon 20D and receive the same message. Zoombrowser works fine with my Canon G3, so the way I get around this problem is by using the other software that came with the 20D called EOS Viewer. This software will download your images every time. You might try sending a note to Canon's support team on the Canon website. They are very quick to respond to all questions and they can probably respond to this question too. Good luck!
