Error 98 & 99 means a NONSPECIFIC error message.

It may be a lens problem. It may be a shutter problem. It may be a battery problem. It's Canon's way of saying "Something happened, and we don't know exactly what, but we know it isn't right". You're going to have to try to narrow it down by using fresh batteries, trying different lenses, trying different shooting modes, shooting wide open in AV, manually focussing, turning off IS if you have it.

In short, if it happens regularly, try to identify what you're doing when it happens and how that differs from when it doesn't. But don't expect somebody else's solution to work for you. Their camera may have a different problem.

Are you try contacting the Canon Support?

Hi I would like to help, but I see many other error code but 98. Would you tell me functional things like (when you fisrt battery in, is there error occurring immediately when you try to release shutter button, is there occurring or during the sequence of camera operation...)etc If you have time can skype me anytime after 6 PM. I will be available. You can judge me later. I can give most information than what you expect (how to repair and where to repair and how much the market charge). Thanks and best regard!

Error maeesge and no auto focus

What message? if an FEE, perhaps you forgot to put the Diafragm marking to the greatest figure (22 or so) and forgot to put the lock on.
Next time, I think it could be very helpful you tell what error you see. Nobody needs to guess what you see.

Hello marlynsantos. You are experiencing a Windows 98 Drive error.
The Solution could be getting a new Driver. (DVD/CD) I would also recommend upgrading your computer. Windows 98 is pretty old. You can find Drivers on ebay.
I hope this helped!

My mothers old (very old) computer works on Windows 98. Her printer has decided not to work anymore and cannot be fixed (a Canon Pixma ip4200). The experts at the computer shop have sold her a Canon Pixma...

Best advice, return printer to shop with proof of purchase, not fit for purpose either replace with model that will work or refund monies.

Might be a good idea, if you don't mind the agro, to take poota in at the same time, so shoppie can then match printer to poota. Thats the easy way.
Alternative is upgrade poota to say XP a lot earier to use than Vista, no idea have Win7 run's yet?
Sorry can't be of more help!!

System Code Error 87

Sounds like the application you are running may not be compatible with Windows 98. Probably can't do much as Windows 98 is so old.

Although it may be a missing file, DLL, or driver on your Windows 98 system, hard to tell.
