Did this video help you?

Michelle Dillon: Thank you so much, my camera is my life.. I love taking pictures and my camera has been down for a long time... I had not been able to take pictures for ever until now.. I have one lens that don't work... now my camera is in business....
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

Nicole Lamberti: Michael- thanks for the helpful tutorial. Followed the steps in your video- Think I narrowed it down that it's a CF card issue- other than changing to another CF card (which didn't solve the Error 99), what are the next steps? Thanks.

Peter Rafeiner: One of 3 things, Camera, Lens or Memory card.
What's left?
Ah yes, I guess that rules out the strap then :-)

iqnyte: My Canon 1Ds gave error99 because the battery gave more than 14 volts. When I replaced that with a true 12 volts one (a Lenmar), the error99 was gone. So too high a voltage could cause error99 as well.

Michael Gogan: Excellent advice - thanks.  Isn't it great how sometimes the simplest solutions are the best :-)  In my case it was the lens connection, resolved in a minute..  

KEITH KUHN: GOOD WORK SIR
KEEP THE GOOD VIDEOS COMING

Anil Krishnan: Hi Michael. I suddenly started getting this error on my Canon EOS XSi Rebel which is 5 years old. I removed the SD card, Battery and Lens and waited for 20 minutes re-inserted the Battery and clicked, still get the error. What should I do? I tried changing the SD Card and fully charged the battery and changed the Lens, still get the error. What is your advice?

msbecalee: Tried this with different lenses, still getting ERR99. My guess is the camera body issues, is there a link to repair it? Cannot find a camera shop anywhere. 

Darieee: any clues on how to fix a Compact Flash Error ???

Bernadette Byrne: As a complete amateur, I was despairing of my camera until I saw this video. There are not the local shops to go to any more for advice etc So far, I think you've helped me cure the problem. Really appreciated, thanks you :)

Randy Sprouse: i get the e99 on my Canon Rebel xs. I always get it when I first turn on my camera. I remove the battery, then I can take plenty of continuous shots with no problem unless I take a 30 second rest. Then I get the error again. I doubt its my lens. I've been using it for a year and then one day E99!

Ibrahim Al-tiay: My one turned out to be one of the ribbon cables not all the way in. I'd opened my camera earlier to fix a flash issue. All working now :D Thanks for the video.

CAESARbonds: My dealer said my buddys camera is crap. its a e10d. it takes one picture, even with flash and auto focus that all works great. and then err99. I also made a picture without lens. shutter and mirror are working. so still planed obsoescence and more electric waste for the bin?

USOMetroDC: Michael I used the pencil eraser technique and it worked!! Thank you so much for posting this video.

TheSunshinegal67: Have u tried it and see if it does or not??

TheSunshinegal67: Michael has explained, why is that hard for u to visualized on how to do t urself??

Je-Nell Abeshima: Thank you so much. Found it was my zoom lens that didnt work. Other lens works perfect. Great and helpful video. Now need to get a new zoom lens.

Trisha Nolan: After waiting the 20 minutes and reinserting the battery, as per your great video (thank you for that), I get a mixed bag really. Right away here I get a buSY signal. I go on and put the card in, still with a buSY signal, then, after puting one lense on, it tries to work, but wont focus, or let me take a picture. Another lense continuously tries, where another just doesn't focus. All the while, lower LCD screen is blank no matter what I do and the one above may be on even when camera is off.

Janek Kolo: OK, but where is date/time battery located? In the same slot where main battery is?

MichaelTheMentor: An interpretive dance perhaps?
