Film won't adanvce

I purchased the camera used, and put in new batteries. When I first turned the camera on, I got some numbers in the window, then an "err". Now, the film will not advance and the err won't go away. Also, I'm not finding the reset button.

Needs new batteries, or the film isn't loaded properly. Check the battery area for rust too and clean the contacts gently with a pencil eraser.

Hello:

Here is what Canon said :

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 hope this will help

Err 99 appears after every click for canon eos 30 D


Err 99, but lens-to-body problems are common- thought error 99 is a bit of a catch all- generally a lens and body conflict. And also Err 99 means that something wrong happened, but then it cleared out before it could be further determined.
Here is the blurb from canon to try:

For factory service, forward your digital camera (remove the CF card

difficulties. Be sure to include your name, address, telephone number,
and proof of warranty (if applicable). Send to the Canon Factory
Service Center at the following address:

Canon Factory Service Center

Tel.# (732)521-7007

or

Canon Factory Service Center

Irvine, CA 92618
Tel.# (949) 753-4200

Your equipment will be examined and you will be advised of the
findings.
The length of time for the repair will be dependent upon the nature of
the repair and availability of parts if needed. If the repair entails
something that is not covered in warranty you will be sent a written
estimate to the address that you have provided.

You need to return it to the place of purchase as a defective model and get them to exchange it for a new unit, or else send it in for warranty repair.

Ensure the batteries are the correct kind and chemical makeup (yes it does make a difference!)
try using lithium or alkaline as oppose to standard =]

Otherwise there may be an issue with the camera itself, check for warranty? if it isnt under warranty, document the error message/number, consult the manual AND the support site for the manufacturer.

good luck! =]

My camera won't do anything but flash the Err message


Make sure the lens you are using on the camera is set to the minimum aperture setting. i.e. f22,f32 (highest f stop number)

You might want to check the position of the aperture ring on the lens. If it is not set at the highest number, ( IE smallest aperture, f22,f32 ), then the camera will display that error message
