This was taken from another site:
My camera displays “bC” or “Err 99” when I try to take a picture. What does this mean?
BC is an error condition in EOS film cameras, and means one of two things. It either means “battery check,” so try putting in a fresh battery, or it’s a general error condition of some type. If the battery is fine, have a look at the previous section for things to check, especially dirty lens contacts or lens compatibility problems with Sigma lenses. Error 99 is essentially the same error condition as BC, only on EOS digital cameras. The EOS D30 also had error codes 09 and 10, which are similar.

I hope that info helps.
Good Luck!

Camer won't turn on.(Cannon EOS Digital Rebel XT)

A dead camera is impossible to tun diagnostic checks on without specialist tools, so yes, your camera will need to go to a Canon service centre for diagnosis and an estimate. If you decide not to go ahead with the work then you'll be charged for return shipping and a fee for the work carried out to make a diagnosis.

If the warranty expired fairly recently, then it may be worth contacting Canon before getting the estimate: it's not unknown for them to offer goodwill repairs for major faults which occur prematurely, but you need to be aware that your model was only designed with an approximate four year minimum lifespan.

New Camera, no picture on screen

This is normal for this camera. Think about it. The CMOS chip can't see through the mirror. After the shot is taken the electronic shutter exposes the CMOS chip and makes an image just like exposing film on a film type camera. Once you get used to it you may like it better. In outdoor or bright light situations it's difficult to view the LCD screen to frame the shot anyway.

My Cannon Rebel EOS 35mm film Camera is producing blank Film

If you are getting some photos where only part of the image is visible, then I suspect that they were photos where you used a flash.

Cameras have a specified maximum shutter speed for use with a flash, this is called its 'sync speed'. This is the fastest speed that the camera will need to open the lead shutter and close the trailing shutter in order to expose the entire surface area of the image and have it evenly lit by the flash unit. If you shoot too fast of a speed, then the shutter will only be partly completed its exposure and you'll get a photo with only part of the image showing. The faster the speed past the sync speed, the less the resulting area of the image. Most cameras will have a sync speed of 1/250 or less. I think a lot of the Rebel models are 1/90 - consult your manual.
