E18 my canon powershot A150, got the whole E18 problem, it turns on with the blue canon screen, but then two seconds after it turns into a faded black with E18 in the bottom left hand corner. i seriously dont know whats wrong, and it hasnt even been a year since i got the camera, is there any way i can fix this problem? because at the moment buying a camera, my parents would not be too pleased :| it turns on with blue screen then it goes black and it says e18

My son dropped my Canon powershot SD450 while it was on, and the nose was out. I can still view photos, but the nose (or shutter... not sure what to call it) is stuck out and whenever I turn it on it beeps (the screen is black) and the screen displays "E18" in the bottom left corner. When turned on, right before the beep, the nose sounds like it is trying to extend, but almost like it is jammed. Is this fixable??
