Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

The usb port on the camera no longer works. I believe I unplugged it "hot". I've used it regularly for years but ever since unplugging it without ensuring it was properly "stopped" using the computer's "safely remove hardware" function three days ago, the camera is no longer recognized when I plug it in. The usb port still works on other detached items.I've tried to upgrade from the net and to reinstall the camera's usb driver from my install disk and in both instances I get the message it doesn

Pincushion distortion I've actually had this camera for about 2.5 years now, so presume well out of warranty, but I realise by looking back at my photos that the problem may have been there from the start. When taking photos on the default camera position I get a reasonably severe distortion of the picture, such that a person standing off centre will have his head elongated somewhat toward the corners, and straight lines along the edge will bend toward the corners.

Built-in Battery I have a Dimage Z10 digital camera and it would appear that the 'built-in long-life battery' has now run out as my settings are no longer held when the camera is switched off. The manual suggests that the camera needs to go to a Konica Minolta service facility - as it is about four years and outside the warranty period is this something that I can do myself - if so how would I go about it?

This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

I have a Kodak Easyshare M1063 that I've had for almost 1.5 years, so it's no longer under warranty. I recently had to replace the battery, and since then, I've been having problems with it. Not all the pictures transfer via the Easyshare software. I've found a workaround for that by inserting the SD card into my laptop and transferring them that way (bypassing the proprietary Kodak software). The last time I did that, however, when I reinserted the SD card and powered on the camera, the shu

Vtech Kidizoom camera - no longer turns on. It's less than a year old but past the 90 day warranty. I opened it up to look for the obvious (disconnected wires, cracked circuit board or toasted components but didn't notice anything out of the ordinary) I checked the voltage at the power terminals on the circuit board and got good readings.probably some internal componant that fryed - I may spend some more time with it later (when i have time) - but it'll probably just end up in the trash....

Before you trash, what could turn out to be a fully functional cam, try this. Take a large ziplock bag and fill it halfway with "uncooked rice" not the minute rice stuff, the regular rice. Take the battery out. Place the cam and battery both in the b ... Vtech Kidizoom Digital Camera

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer

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.

Am I loosing my mind?? My Nikon D80 no longer displays an image while I'm composing a picture. It definitely did..I was in the middle of composing and it just shut off. It displays in playback & after the picture is taken but no longer while composing. I've had this camera for over a year & use it frequently. I took it to a camera shop and they said the d80 does not show "live view" & I must be mistaking it for d90. I definitely have the d80.

You're not nuts. I saw a guy activate live view on the d80 while doing a demonstration on a Youtube tutorial. I just can't seem to find the video nor how to activate Live View on my camera. I think I'll try contacting Nikon directly ... Digital Cameras

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old).

They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?
