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..
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?

mdiosan: thank you very much ! :))))
Rudi Wells: Same as insightskate, I had this when trying to use the flash on my 40D, it

of weeks later it just started working
Poi159: Thanks for the tip! Will keep that workflow in mind.

InsightSkate: I just started getting the error 99 yesterday... and it only happens when I
use the pop up flash... I really hope I don't have to send it to canon
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.
MichaelTheMentor: @B4uknowme09 Try it with a different lens! Sounds like this is where the

Filipe Coragem: it would be better if you show how to do it! better than all this talking...
Are Serrano: all i do is open and close the little battery door and it works perfect
nick1296: It is the sensor A resistor failed(popped)
dakipro: I had 99, and it was battery problem. Battery was "lying" the camera about
its capacity and went empty while still showing the full state. Then camera
had no idea what the issue was, and reported 99.
BeyondReality2: I'm waiting for my 20 minutes for my camera to be done now, I have a Cannon
Rebel XTI, and everytime I take photo's that have too much light in them
(such as being outside or in a well lit room) my camera gives me the
dreadfull Error 99. So hopefully this will fix it! (:

MichaelTheMentor: An interpretive dance perhaps?
cameramanu: Yes I had it on my 40D so I sent it to Canon and they fixed it. My 7D had
farral: I have famus ERR99 from a week and today I find out it's happened only with
EF-S 17-85mm and only between 17-29mm. From 30-85mm still works great so
it's a obviously lens problem. I heard that sending it to Canon costs
almost the same as new one. I think I will try to fix it by myself. There
is one DIY site. If it fail the new one byt not 17-85 this time will have
too be bought. Please cross your fingers. Thanks
MichaelTheMentor: @gervin911 Thanks! This lesson was actually the same steps Canon outlined
for me when I had the issue, so...its more of a way for people to identify
where the error is. And yes, contact issues can cause error 99 as well.
PHDoze: wow! thank-you so much! i found this very helpful :)
roxy1769: Hi Michael , it is one of my lens that is doing this , how do i fix the len
gervin911: Very good exlaination Andrew. However "error 99" when using lens is 95%
lens aperture problem. and 5% lens main bd. if camera has lens contact
falure , you will see "error 01". Cleaning lens contact won't help much.
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!
