    I have a camera that is going for sell on ebay (canon 10d) but it will only let you take one picture then it displays "Err 99", you can turn off the camera and turn it back on and you would be able to see the picture you just took, but you will have to keep turning it on and off to take a new pic. If I could fix that problem easly and cheaply then I would like to bid on it, but if it's going to cost a bundle to fix I won't bother... What would cause that?

    Thanks I knew someone would know about this problem... basically it will cost more to fix than what it's worth right?

    I get the same message when I try to use my Sigma lens on my 10d. Started doing that after about a year. All the canon lenses work fine though.

    from what I've heard...ERR99 is a general lens error. It could be an incompatible lens, dirty lens contacts or just mystery gremlins :D. Lots of info on the internet...just Goggle it.

    Camera is 'most likely' fine...but who knows.
