I'm guessing its the AC/DC converter. I opened up the camera and my conclusion is the ac/dc conveter.

Dear Iam25:

I'm having the same error 50 on my 50D. I'm very interested in hearing how you solved your error.

Thanks so much,

Well, that problem was simple to solve.

I can't believe all I've read on this site and other online sites about the error 50 code.

I decided to call Canon. Simple. They told me to clean all contacts on all batteries and lenses and camera with a clean eraser head. That's it. Problem solved.

I was getting this error when I was using a third party battery grip. After removing the grip, I have not had the error. So, that supports contacts idea as stated by Canon.
