Answers :

The problem is in the ccd sensor circuit, or the shutter motor has seized. I recommend a camera technician and an estimate.

My camera was working fine and then it gently rolled on to the rug and then it never worked right since. I got the code in the corner of the display E18 and I cannot do a darn thing with the camera now. Should I just chuck it ? ??? Its a cannon power shot A400. (When I turn it on the display light comes on and it beeps numberous times and then the E18 signal comes on and then it goes away and the camera turns off. I do not even think the shutter opens up ) The batteries are charged so what now.

When pressing the power button, the shutter opens, the lens comes out, the screen comes on for about 2 seconds. Then the screen turns off, the lens goes back in, but the shutter stays open. I let someone use it and this is the condition it was returned in. I'm not sure if it was dropped or anything, but I don't see any external damage.

Brought my cyber-shot to the beach and had it in a camera case. When I got home it was a little bit moist on the inside of the case, and the lens would not open at all. On the screen it said to power the camera on and off again. There were a few grains of sand around the lens so I gently tapped in and it opened. Now, although it is opening I still cant take pictures. It is still giving me the same message to power it off and back on. Is this fixable?

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening


George, this is most likely a lens issue, and more precisely, probably a stripped gear when it fell. You will have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the lens assembly, and will probably be a professional by the time you get through! ... Digital Cameras
