    Hi. I have the same trouble with my 40D, giving error 01 saying that the lens contacts need cleaning. Done that several times and it works ok for a few shots and then gives the same error again and locks up.

    My 18-55 lens that I got with my 'old' 350D which I am now using on my 40D also has error 01. My other lenses are working fine without problem. Just need to know if there is a fix out there before I buy another lens - thanks

I have been having the same problem, and have read that you can carefully clean the lens contacts (take the lens off the camera body, the contacts are the metal parts) with a new pink eraser, or with >90% alcohol and a lint-free cloth. I tried the eraser thing, and it started to work, but is making the same error code again. I am going to try again with another pencil, and then with the alcohol before I send it in (I'm overseas so that would be a lot of $$$). Hope that helps someone!

E:91:01 is a flash unit error, probably meaning your flash is inoperative .
Try settings, main menu, setup, initialise.
If this does not work, then new flash module required.
