Finally decided to mod my beloved 1000d. It went pretty well but the main issue being with the screw inside and under the eye piece.

Re assembled about 8x now and still error 99.

It almost feels like the shutter is jammed when I press it.

Has anyone had this problem and fixed it?

I fear the worst for the little guy although I did only buy to mod it, it will be missed.

Try turning it upside down and giving it a good shake.  Have you got all the screws in all the holes?  Could be a rogue screw stuck in something.  I could probably fix it - doesn't sound dead :)

Well i gave it a really good shake unfortunately still the same ha.

Any idea if it's worth trying to get a professional (or just some one who knows more than me....which I guess could be everyone) to take a look at it?

I mean I bought it for £100 so might not be worth fixing.

Don't panic yet!  I've had error 99 before.  The most likely cause is a ribbon cable that is not properly seated (or not connected at all).  I'm afraid you'll have to open it up and check each one.

The ribbon cable fittings are a pain- really only meant for single operation (i.e. in the factory) and not repeated assembly/dissassmbly.

Difficult to agree with this statement because if it were the case, then no one would be able to change any Canon!
