  • 20d help!

    ok guys i have a problem with my canon 20d. today i was shooting at the park a volleyball game of my friends and when i shot them my camera went crazy. it just keeps snapping the shutter. no data on the lcd screen and on the top read out. it just snaps the shutter a ton of times. even if i take out the battery, the thing just keeps snapping the shutters. i tried to take out the vertical grip and run the battery in the factory slot, and still. it just keeps snapping. i could turn off and turn on and the top display would say error 99. i tried changing other len's but still it says error 99. i just got my camera back from canon last week from a backfocus fix. i dont know what to do?

      Check the contact's see if theyre not dirty, Also check the mirror out but be careful with the curtains.

      Most likely they damaged something while they serviced it.
