Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the lens and the camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

How to fix error 001 in canon lens


The Canon Err 01 is called Lens communication.
The lens has lost communication with the camera, or vice versa. This can be caused by dirt or grease on the gold coated contacts. On the lens or in the camera.
Try cleaning the contacts, with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Don't use any sharp tools or force. To pinpoint where the error is, you could try to place another lens. If the error disappears most likely the first lens caused the problem. If the error stays, you should suspect the camera.
If you only have the problem with one lens, and the contacts are clean, contact a certified Canon repair centre.

Busy and or Error 01


For error message 01 the manual says: Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean lens contacts.
Solve: Clean the electrical contacts on the camera and lens and use a Canon lens.
SO if you are using a different lens or a non Canon lens this could be what is wrong.

If you never changed a lens, it still can be that something went wrong in the communication between the camera and lens. Just careful remove the lens and with a dry and lint free cloth, clean all contacts on the lens and in the camera. While working on the lens, close the camera with the camera cap, or put the camera face down.
Don't use anything sharp while working on a lens or a camera.

Hi, I am having the same problem with the same lens. Only news I have found so far was in a spanish language forum, used google translate and it sounds like the guy had to have it repaired. In my case, the lens is about 18 months old and I find other lenses work fine on my T2i. The forum I read mentioned a ribbon cable within the lens that can break, but the translations were too poor to tell if it was the problem for sure or not.

When i on my Canon EOS 450D camera it says error 99 turn off and on the camera or re install the battery how can fix this problem


The error 99 code has different sources, to identify it do this:

Remove the Lens, and try shooting at various speed high (1/1000 or more) then at more normal ones 1/15, 1/50 etc.
If you see the error 99 then contact canon this is a problem wit the camera.
In this case contact Canon directly.

If you still don' have the error message, then put back the lens and try shooting at different apertures (for a lens the error 99 correspond with an aperture problem)
try every aperture. If the problem appears then, clean the lens contacts both on the camera and on the lens.

If the problem is still there, contact the lens brand, you certainly have a blocked or sticky aperture.

Hope this helps.

I have an error 01, communication between the camera and lens is faulty, it says to clean the lens contacts. I have a 60d canon body it does it only with the 17-85 lens how do I clean the contacts...


Have you tried cleaning the contacts? Taking out BOTH batteries? (There's a button cell as well as the main battery.) If you have a second lens you can test, i'd give that a shot first. Either way, probably need to have it replaced or repaired right away.

Finally, have you got the latest firmware version? The XS is currently at version 1.0.5, which was released in April of this year. You can download it here.

Also, could check this link: 50mm-lens-contact-points and the video, as reference...



If this choice dont solve and s
till the same error - ship it off to Canon for service.

Hope helps.

Hi there I have recntly purchased a Canon 15m EF fish eye lense which I have used on a Canon 450d + 350d body. On the 350d I get an error 99 code and on the 450d get a 01 error code. This leads me...


Rob, Error 99 is Canon's catch all error code, yes my first impression would also have been to clean the contacts but something else that is happening is the camera firmware may need to be updated to handle that particular lens. Camera updates are free on the Canon site and actually can solve a lot of hidden processing problems.

That lens isn't really suitable for your 450d as it's an APS-C sensor size with a 1.6 crop focal factor which will give you more like a 24mm focal length.

You may also want to format the memory card and clean your battery terminals both the battery and the contacts in the battery compartment.

Best little cleaning item for cleaning contacts is a pencil eraser (new) lens contacts or battery something about the soft rubber cleaning off the most suborn dirt and electrolysis.

Don't use a "used" eraser obviously it will transfer the dirt to the contacts over removing what you want.

Hope these techniques work they have for me

Hi error 01 on canon 5d mk 1. With brand new 70-200 2.8? Have read there is an issue on portrait shots but I am unable at this stage to be sure if it has only been an issue for landscape horizontal use or...


Error 01 is generally associated with camera unable to communicate with lens. Could be contacts need cleaned; since lens is new contacts on camera are more likely starting point for cleaning. But, common issue is failure of something in the lens, but that seems unlikely as it is new ... but it could happen. You might search for other Canon Error 01 comments/solutions. Failing a solution from that, time to contact SigmaUSA repair to have them inspect/repair under warranty.

I did some digging and found that this error is most often a lens communication error. Are you, by chance using a non-Canon lens?

Try the following:

1. Remove the lens and take a picture without any lens on. If you get an ERR 99, then it is a camera issue and you will need to contact Canon for further troubleshooting or repair (ie. not the lens).
2. If you do not get the error with the lens off, try it with a Canon lens or any other lens. If no error, it is a problem with the original lens.
3. If the error occurs on both lenses, clean the lens contacts both on the lens and the camera (refer to your manual).

Hope this helps.

Error 99 in EOS 400D


Here is a link which may help you.
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1031&message=9598105

It may be that the contacts on the lens is dirty, follow the directions, by using a clean pencil eraser (I would also suggest to use alcohol and clean the contacts after using the eraser). Also to remove the date button battery and the other batteries, then turn on the camera (with all batteries removed).
Then put the batteries back in.
