\015\012Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, or if repair costs close to the value of the camera, they're worth a try. And for the A400, have actually had a lot of success with these, especially Fix #7.

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 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.
