Canon rebel xt error messages
error 99 can most times be remedied by taking a standard pencil eraser and carefully cleaning the gold contacts at the back of the lens and the gold maching contacts in the lens opening of the camera... BE CAREFUL not to let eraser crumbs into your camera... keep it clean... reset the battery and give it a whirl.... did it solve the 99 issue?
for the CF it refers to the cf card... here's what I've found on this:
Canon reports that this error code may appear on your digital
camera’s LCD (liquid-crystal display) when there is an error reading
from or writing to the inserted CF (CompactFlash) card. This error code
occurs most often after a user has tried to eject a CF card before the
camera has finished writing data to the card.Solution:
suggests that you first try to use a different CF card. If you do not
see the error message when you use the new CF card, the first card is
Before you take the next step, drag the files
from the CF card to a location on your hard drive to back up the files.
Next, you can use Windows’ ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for
errors. If you use a Mac, you can use Disk Utility (in
Applications\Utilities\) in OS X.
If ScanDisk or Disk Utility
fails to resolve the CF card problem, insert the CF card in your camera
again. Then format the CF card. On most Canon cameras, you can do this
by pressing the Menu button, selecting the Format tab, highlighting
Format, selecting Format, and choosing Yes. Make sure you have backed
up the data on the card before you do this. Formatting the card will
delete the images from the card. After you format the card in your
camera, use ScanDisk or Disk Utility to check the CF card again. If you
still encounter errors while using ScanDisk or Disk Utility, you should
discard the CF card because it is damaged.
If the error still
occurs after following the steps above, your camera may need repair.
