Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera
Err99 taking pics in sun
Posted by Anonymous on
Error code 99 indicates detection of a system malfunction. Try switching on the camera and while it is still switched on remove the battery. Leave it for about 30 secs then re-insert the battery once powered up switch the camera off wait 30 secs then switch it on again. This action sometimes will remedy this problem but failing that it may need a visit to the repair shop.

If it is a malfunctioning unit, you may qualify for an upgrade through Canon rather than going out and buying a new one, paying full price, you can get a deep discount through their loyalty program. Give them a call to set your camera up for service and the service technician once they have your camera will let you know if you qualify for the program and which camera you will qualify for and how much it will cost.
Hope this helps!

the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.

Sorry to say this sounds like a stuck open shutter mechanism. Put the camera in any mode other than auto and make certain that you turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself in the following step). Next look down the center of the lens barrel and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker (wonder where that website got that name?) in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen then it's likely stuck.
Some people have had success in unsticking Canon S2 IS shutters with the following procedures. It may or may not work for you:
