An Error 99 is an non specific error which means that camera doesn't know or have a code for the problem. In my case the shutter assembly needed replacing. This was a fairly involved process for a beginner such as myself.

This is not a comprehensive guide but should be used in conjunction with the Canon Service Manual and youtube videos. I hope that some of the pictures I took along the way might help you identify or remember how each step works.
