    I have same problem. I've noticed the iris stick in the closed/stopped down position. I can see it looking in through the lens from the front. Switching off/on usually causes it to unstick.



    Have tried cleaning lens and battery contacts. have also tried new battery.



    Plan to try a new lens!

"err99" means the camera cannot talk to the lens which is why the camera is not working in auto mode with that lens. There could be several issues: 1. clean the contacts between the camera and body (the gold pins and conact plates on the lens); 2. dismount and remount the lens and perhaps it is just not correctly making contact; 3. remove the battery and let set and then replace and try again (usually doesn't work); 4. make sure that the only thing between the lens and the body is nothing; 5. otherwise either the lens or the body is defective.

Good luck

Usually this is cased by shutter failure or failure of the aperture unit in the lens. Try another lens and see if you get the same error message - that will tell you if the problem is in the camera body or lens

I have a cannon 300D, was ok, then i went t o take a photo, and could not see any thigngthrough the viewfinder, its completley black, i have checked all settings etc, but can see nothing.... help ???????


Check the following, nothing blocking the lens e.g. filter or cap; power is on; battery needs to be recharged. Also put camera on automatic mode, turn on and off and restart in automatic mode. Also the viewfinder may have an on and off mode these cameras can so its best to start with simple and basic settings

My cannon rebel eos DS6041 displays error 99 when


'Error 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

Canon 300d gives error 99 and does not work


Try the following diagnosis steps: -

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 only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

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 is faulty and should be serviced.

I have the same problem. So far I've contacted Sigma (I believe this is the company that manufacturers the Quantaray lens for Ritz) and they requested I send them a photo of the lens. I just googled sigma lens to find sigma support. I will update you all with any response I may get.

Error 99 with Canon


You need to have your Sigma lens rechipped. Contact your local Sigma representative, they should be aware of this, and will be able to tell where to take the lens to be rechipped.
