Hi Tony,

I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question.

Error 99 indicates a problem with the shutter assembly and the motor assembly for the mirror.

The camera will need to be sent for servicing, and these parts may need to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any followup questions.
