    I can´t try it out because I have sent it in to Canon Service Center - as I have tried a lot of advices given in other Photo Forums. But I have never tried this advice, so maybe this is the soloution... :)

    I have got my camera back from Canon Servic Center. I would cost me $600 and with the reservation that hidden errors could occur. I decided to get my camera returned and did have a silent hope that this advice given here maybe could help.



    I have tried it out now, but it did NOT help unfortunately.

Make sure the camera is OFF when placing the battery in it, and have the mode dial (Top left side) set to the green rectangle for automatic mode. Then turn ON.

Canon 20D gone shutter crazy , clicking away on its own error code 99


The Canon 20 D is a fantastic camera but the weak point is the shutter it last about 70 to 80,000 actuation then causes a bunch of problems. In Canada it cost about $180.00 including the shipping to the repair depot to get it fixed.

The shutter continues to click in rapid concession Canon 20d


Check to make sure that you don't have it set on continuous. Check the lcd display and see if the shutter icon showing a mulitple as opposed to single frame image.
You should be able to choose between single, mulitiple and timed shutter releases...

Canon EOS 20D shutter error


Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

Canon 20D err 99 and shutter going off continuously


its not the battery

its the exposure of the shutter speed of the camera

it might need to be set manually. set it to 2.8 or 4.5 speed

i had the same problem when i bought my sigma 20mm-80mm lens.

the lens wasnt talking to the camera properly, it didnt know what it was aying about exposure speed rate.

put the camera in AV mode and set the speed rate.

the lens might be compatible with your camera even though it is a canon, or it could be defective

return and replace

Error 99


I get error 99 sometimes on my 20 D but it?s usually to do with a lens that is attached. Sigma lens have been known to cause error's. If it's not that or dirty contact on the lens then it could be a more serious problem. I would at least check it out with a canon dealer/repair centre.
