Hi Patrick. Welcome to justanswer.

Does this error comes with all the lens?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 7 months ago.

Turn on the camera and while it is on, just Open the flash card door and when the door slides just push it back. This will reset the camera. Check if the error goes away or not.

looks like it as repaired, works ok but blue light come on when power is turned off and only goes out when the battery is removed.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 7 months ago.

Patrick there is some problem in the software of the camera because of which the error 99 came. It went away with the method that I advised but since the problem is still there, these small glitches are occurring. How old is your camera?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not sure but 4 years old not had a lot of us. What do I need to connect to may PC.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 7 months ago.

You can connect via usb cable but the software I am talking about is the firmware. And a fresh copy of firmware can only be installed by the Canon

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Ok Nathan what are my options now
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 7 months ago.

You can try updating the firmware if its not the latest. You can download the firmware from this Link. CLICK HERE.

And if you can manage to click pictures by switching it off and on, then try doing that else you will need to take it to canon and they will install a fresh copy of firmware but you will be charged for the service.
