Send it back ASAP
As it in warranty as Error 99 is a general error some time due to a out of range setting in manual mode setting in the camera, bad lens and flash mounts plus more
one thing to remember digital cameras with auto lens are very complex thing
Thus more things to go wrong.

Canon makes a ton of these, so some can be bad which is why we have warranty's

Yes, ERR99 is often the result of a lens problem. It can sometimes be caused by using an older incompatible lens or by a lens that's malfunctioning. For example, I've seen ERR99s when trying old incompatible lenses whenever I tried to stop down the lens. Another time, a lens had developed a sticky aperture diaphram intermittantly causing the error whenever I used a smaller aperture. See if the ERR99 stops when you shoot with a wide open aperture and returns when you shot at, say, f8.

I'm getting error99 due to the flash. If I put it into no flash mode the camera operates fine, just the pix are crap.

Hi, thank you so much for the speedy reply! I have performed a reset on the camera, as well as removing both the battery pack and the watch battery, to no avail. I did think of trying an external flash unit, and am currently trying to borrow one from a friend who has a genuine Canon unit to see if this will work. I have also contacted a UK Canon-approved repairer to get a quote, so I should hopefully soon know how much I can expect to pay. Thanks again for your help in the matter. Kind Regards, Andy
