Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Essentially error 99 is a general failure of your camera. If confirmed, it means your camera need repair-servicing.
But first, confirm that the error persists if you
A. swap the lens, or try starting up the camera body without the lens attached to it.
B. remove the memory card in it, or try a different memory card in it
What do those things-to-try produce?
Canon Repair may be contacted and engaged through this page:
or by calling 1-800-OK-CANON.
If what I recommended does not help, it's a choice between Canon Repair (which is rated quite highly for speed of turnaround and quality, by and large), and giving up on the camera.
