Every time I turn on the camera it sais Error 99 could anyone explain it to me .thanks chris
According to ehow:
Place the body cap on your
camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your
lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
Turn off your camera and
remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery.
The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime
found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a
vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger
on the battery and pulling it toward you.
Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
Press the shutter release button
(the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an
Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself.
The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
Turn off the camera and insert
the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release
button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely
caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different
memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release
Turn off the camera and reattach
the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If
you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
Turn the camera so that it is
face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a
number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight
small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to
let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
Turn the lens so that the side
that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth
to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any
eraser scraps fall into the lens.
Reattach the lens to the camera.
Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are
receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take
the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.
