Camera Error

Recommended Posts

Was out shooting today with my XTi and my 200-500 Tamron and it came up with 'Error 99'. I replaced battery and card and same error came up. I took it over to Mike Meyer's and he cleaned off the contacts, but that didn't work either. My other lenses work. Does anyone have an idea of what I need to do to fix the problem? Thanks!

Between you and Mike, you've taken a look at the most common easy solutions. I have some problems with my 70-200, particularly when the IS is on and also particularly when Steve is using it! grin A couple of other possibilities according to my understanding. Sometimes when my batteries are low, the problem gets worse so I'm careful to keep them as charged as possible when I'm using that lens. Also, calibrations or problems with the chip inside the lens could also be a factor. I'm going to be sending mine to Canon soon (before the wedding season starts) to see if they can come up with anything that can be corrected to eliminate the problem.

Must be a rash of these! Just helped somebody yesterday with this one. This is right from Canon support. Go through each of these steps and see if it helps. I've also had some success with re-loading the firmware. Its worth a shot. Just make sure you write down any custom functions you may have set, you will lose them. Good luck and let us know if this helps.

Thank you for contacting Canon product support.

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.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
