    error 99 on the display after shooting

  • lillialehane Dec 11, 2008

    if you know how to fix it - would be great to know

  • PhilipH Jan 08, 2009

    I have had the same problem, err 99 started appearing on my 1000d 3 weeks after purchase, occurs after taking a photo. Seems to be related to writing to the SD card, as I have swapped lens, battery packs, SD cards. Doesn't fail if the SD card is removed. Can temporarily fix the problem by removing and reinserting the battery, works until the next time the camera is switched off. Sent the camera back to Canon for repair, they replaced the main PCB, but the camera came back with the same fault......not sure what to do next as my retailer is being awkward and refusing to refund my money.

Error 99 is shutter error. Best solution is to replace it ASAP if the camera is still under warranty. We go through many replacement of shutters for many Digital Rebel series. There is no simple answer without replacing it to good shutter part. The problem will keep coming back. Out of warranty repair charges may run from $150 to $250 depending repair facility. -James.

SOURCE: canon rebel xti digital camera mem. card will not lock into place

It seems that the CF reader mechanical assembly part has loose or out of place an internal part.

It may be caused by excessive force in pushing/pulling a CF memory card, or due to a manufacturing issueof the camera.

The solution is to open the camera, and check what is causing the problem and fix it.

If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to return it. If not, then you will need to pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you have experience, skills and patience in fixing electronic devices.

Such repair will require some philips screwdrivers, a soldering iron, soldering wire, and a st of tweezers.

There are in internet some guides to open and disassembly Canon XT 350D or Rebel 300d cameras. The disassembly process with the XTi 400D is very similar. You can Google fr such guidelines.

Best regards,

SOURCE: my canon eos rebel xti keeps showing error code 99


To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you 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 a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If it does, then the camera should
be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of
steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.

If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.

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 should be serviced.

I have a Cannon Rebel XTI and i keep getting err 99


Make sure your firmware is up to date. The current version is 1.09 which did address a problem with live view that could cause error 99.
Here's the link http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eosdigital4/firmware.html


Also try removing your lens and putting it back on. Sometimes it is a bad connections between the body and lens that can cause this error.
