Can someone translate the error code 18800230 for me? I know that the 18 is for LENS DRIVE; the 3rd digit '8' is for an error that occurred on the assembly line or in subsequent service; but the 0230 is not in the service manual. The only info on the lower 4 bits given in the book are 1000 through 7000, 0010 through 0050, 0001, 0002, and 0000. I suspect a lens component failure (mechanical) but am stumped. This camera came to me with lots of crud from the owner's caving activities. Cleaning
