    Your in luck, Christmas is just around the corner! Ask Santa for a Nikon!

    Seriously, found this here.

    One of our participants in the long comment thread below (Tom) got this in a message from Canon USA. It may help some of you isolate the problem before you post a comment/question.
    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.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
    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.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
    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.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
    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.


    May or may not help you.

    I'm going to guess that one of the tips above fixed the error then. If so then that's great!
    Heh, I don't even own a Nikon. I only wish that I did.

    Default Wow!

    Went through the trouble shooting steps you provided, Moe, & then last night I got the "Error 99" message, without the lens on it, & then now it seems to have resolved itself somehow...
