My minolta won't take picture, shuts off giving me err msg

Everything seems to work with the camera. It turns on, I aim as I press the button to take picture the camera automatically focuses. The two led indicators let me know it is done focusing and as I press the shutter button to take picture, nothing happens. No flash, no picture captured. The camera gives me an err msg on top and then it shuts itself off. The batteries are fully charged, What do I need to do ?? Please help. Thank you.

    My Seems to 'Err' esp when the flash is needed.....I've never seen the flash work since this problem has occurred. I've tried newbatteries incl. ReCyko batteries that are suppoed to retain their charge for longer.



    I can take some pics without the flash.

Shutter-release button doesn't work

The manual only can give two reasons why the camera would not take pictures.
One, there is no memory card placed.
Two, the memory card is full.
You are sure you have placed a working empty memory card.
If you did save all the pictures on the memory card to a computer, try formatting the card in the camera.
When you are pressing the shutter release button half, does the camera say it is focused correct? light bottom corner of the display.
Your camera has a setting to take pictures with a remote control. Did you put the camera in that setting? Read page 76 of the manual.

I push the button but it wont take a picture

Did you try it like it is said in the manual? press the button half till the camera is focused and then press the button completely down?
Don't expect the camera to shoot with the same speed as a camera with film did. Give it some time to focus and everything will be fine (I hope)
If not let me know.

My camera says Err 30 turn off and on and re-install battery. this doesn't seem to work....any advice?

Remove the battery, press and hold the power button, or turn the power switch to ON position(depends on the option available in your Camera) for more than 30 Seconds and then reinsert the battery to resolve the issue.

''err 99'' code appearing fairly often recently on Canon Rebel XT

To isolate the cause of the issue, 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 only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.


Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.


Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
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 is faulty and should be serviced.
