Re: How do I clean the camera lens?

The best way to clean a lens is to use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of lens cleaning solution. Place a drop or two of cleaner on the tissue (never directly onto the lens) and then wipe the lens in a circular motion, removing any marks or smear. Additionally a smaller blower brush can be used to simply blow off or brush away loose dust. If the above supplies are not available a clean, dry, soft, lint free cloth can be used to clean the lens. The same method can be used to clean the viewfinder eyepiece of Nikon cameras.

Nikon d5000 says lens not fitted


Still make sure you did turn the lens till it clicks.
You could remove the lens, and clean all contacts both from the camera and the lens, with a dry and clean cloth. Don't use any sharp tool in or close by a camera.
After cleaning, refit the lens. If the error comes back, try another lens, to locate if the lens has an error, or the camera does.

Lens cleaning


Buy a lens pen and carefully clean the lens yourself. it will set you back about 10 dollar. If you never removed the lens form your camera, it is only the front lens you need to clean. Don't use any fluid, unless it says social for photo camera lenses. If you scratched the lens, no way it can be cleaned or repaired it. It would be cheaper to buy a new lens.

Auto focus dosen't work


You are sure on both, the camera and the lens, AF is selected?
If you did and the lens does not work, please try anther lens, to find out, if it is a malfunction of the lens or of the camera.
You also could check if all contacts on the lens and in the camera are clean and not corroded. If the are not clean and shining, please use a dry cloth to carefully rub the contacts clean. Be careful not to bend any contact in that process. please be careful not to leave any dust n the camera or lens. Use the lens and camera caps when you are not cleaning one of them.

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.

Try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera body.

Do you have another lens and/or camera body you can try? Does this lens work on another body, or does another lens work on this body?

So, have you cleaned the contacts as you were advised? You do this by removing the lens and cleaning the contacts on the camera body and on the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Error 99 on canon 300d


Canon's error 99 is a catch all for several things the short answer is an electronic connection. Something isn't making contact and the first place to go is to the "gold" contacts between the lens and the camera body. Make sure the camera is off and remove the lens, place the camera lens side down on a clean dust/lint free surface or put a body cap on. Take the lens and holding as vertical as possible with the gold contact points down use a soft rubber red pencil eraser to lightly clean the contacts. You can remove any rubber dust and partials with a lens cleaning cloth NOT TISSUE. Make sure the area is clean of lint and dust, place the rear lens cap on or stand the lens up on a clean dust and lint free surface. the camera is a bit more tricky as you need to clean the contacts inside the mirror box. Hold the camera as best you can face down and again use the pencil eraser to lightly clean the contacts. Holding the camera as mus as possible lens side down. This will minimize any dust, dirt or lint getting into the camera body and eventually ending up on the sensor. Remove any rubber dust with a lens cloth not tissue and don't use any liquid, don't use a puffer either all that will do is drive dust partials into the camera. Once that's done install the lens, next remove the battery and do the same cleaning trick with the battery contacts, if you have a battery grip do the same thing. Okay now check out the camera if everything is go and works then you are good to go. If not then I would suggest doing a camera firmware update, all updates can be found on the Canon web site they are free and will correct any issues your camera has with the internal programming which may also be the cause of your error 99.

Canon err 01


This error means "Communication between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts." If you are using the same lens on both cameras, the problem is with the metal contacts on the rear of the lens where it communicates with the camera body. You can gently clean these contacts by using a clean pencil eraser. Make sure you hold the lens "bottom down" as you clean it so that the eraser debris falls to the table instead of inside the lens!
