Hi,

Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.If this did not work then.
The helical threads inside the camera probably got bent to the point that it won't work anymore.

You need to get repaired .


Hope this helps.

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.

I have sigma 70-300mm lens. But its autofocus mode is not working.please suggest solutions....what i can do?


You have not supplied enough information, however with the Sigma lenses here are a few things that could be a problem.

Is the switch from auto to manual focus set to auto focus.

Is the lens the proper mount for the camera it is installed on (meaning have you used an adapter to go from a Nikon to a Canon mount?) if so then there will be no electronic communication and the lens will only function in manual focus mode.

Is the lens compatible with the camera model? (meaning some newer cameras set the lens aperture in the camera while some older lenses set the aperture on the lens.)

Part 1 of 2 Have you installed an older "film" lens on a newer version digital camera?

Part 2 of 2 Have you installed a digital full frame lens on a Canon "S" mount with the APS size sensor with the 1.6 focal factor?

Have you changed the camera model to a newer Canon EOS

Have you updated the camera firmware recently?

Have you lightly polished (cleaned) the contacts between the camera and lens?
Have you received an error code 99?
Cleaning the gold contacts on the lens and camera body can be done with a clean pencil eraser and lightly polish the matting surfaces making sure no dust gets into the back of the lens or the camera body. Hold the camera lens mount down while lightly polishing the contacts same with the lens. Do not wipe clean with a facial tissue or use any type of liquid cleaner.

Also third party lenses like Sigma often do not have the compatible electronic "chip" to properly communicate with all Canon EOS cameras. Meaning if you had the lens on a Canon EOS 20D and then put it on a Canon 50D chances are it won't work.

Is the lens properly locked onto the camera body dismount and remount the lens generally solves this problem.

If non of the above isn't the problem then a trip to a repair center is needed.

My canon 20D autofocus doesn't work... can you tell me haw to do?? thanks..


Make sure your camera is set to Auto mode (top left knob). Check your lens and make sure it is switched to "auto" and not "manual"(sliding switch near base of lens). Make sure your lens can rotate and move without being obstructed. Clean the lens contact by removing the lens and use 99% alcohol or lens cleaner sparingly to clean off the metal contacts.
You can also check your viewfinder focus, it has a small dial upper right, that you can fine tune to focus to your own eyesight. If it is way off, your view will always appear to be out of focus.
Hope that helps.

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over...


Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 35mm lens on your eos there are some calculations you must use. When using a 35mm lens on the EOS 20D, 30D, 40D and 50D bodies, you must first calculate your focal leingth by 1.6 times. With this, your exposure changes as well.

The only EOS Digital SLR bodies that use a 35mm x 24mm CMOS sensor are the 1D and 5D. My wife uses a Tamron 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 lens on her 20D and loves it.

If this makes no difference, you may have a defective lens.

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!
