Having problems with your Canon IXUS V2 Digital Camera ?

E18 on canon sd450

\015 O wow! looks like this happens to everyone. \015\012\015\012 i was taking pictures one day while walking with my dogs.. off the leash which was my first mistake.. and had to run after one of them with my camera in my pocket. i retrieved the dog and my cameras lens was open when i tried to take another pic. e18.. beeping.. crazy noise like gears were all tangled. this was about 4 months ago and i just found the camera while cleaning up my room. \015\012\015\012jus banged it a few times and the crazy grinding noise stopped but still e18. no luck. the lens seems to be stuck.. doesnt fully protrude. im not trying to take it apart bc everythng that i do take apart ends up an art project and not an electronic piece of equipment anymore. is there any other remedy than banging it or trying to muscle the lens into a better position?? \015\012\015\012one positive note.. the battery life is awesome! it was still charged after four months of sitting in a desk drawer\015\012\015\012-DL\015

Answers :

Believe it or not, but with my Ixus v² I was able to fix the E18 error for the second time - after having had the same trouble 2 years ago - with the "banging nonsense" ;)
Due to my experiences, you have to bang it with the plastic leash on the left side on a book. Might work for you too...
Good luck!
The gears might be damaged already for the lens that why its not moving anymore, you may need to contact the manufacturer for service center referral

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down. I followed a procedure on the web for this issue and got the camera lens to open and it was working (able to take pictures for about a minute). When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it. I put the fully charged batt

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??
