Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera ?

My canon is displaying an E18...what does that mean


Answers :

\012Hello there,\012
\012The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.\012
\012There are a couple of things you can do. \012
\0121. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.\012
\012If trick 1 will not work out, try this.\012
\0122. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract. \012
\012Let me know how it goes.

My daughter's Canon IXUS 100IS is only a few months old and she's very careful with it, but suddenly now you turn it on and the screen is mostly dark with a few plaid red, green, yellow lines and you can see very subtle shadows when you aim at any shape. The display screen is not working. DOes that mean the pictures won't take? And how can I fix it?

Digital Display We have owned a Canon Powershot A70 for about 3 years now and have taken many great photos with it. However, the display has failed several times and has been repaired by Canon who admits that their displays were made by another manufacturer. Well, the display is gone again! Can I replace the display?


X-tian--Canon will replace the CCD sensor for free if that's really the problem (see ), but in that case why would Donzoni say Canon had replaced the *display*? Unless he's confusing them, of course.\015\012\015\012Donzoni--The fact that you ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

Hi.I have a Canon Powershot S5 IS.When I turn on the camera, the little display seems not to focus and when I open the big display, there appears a black screen.I restored the factory settings and the big display is working fine, but the little display has the same problems.I think that a firmware update would be perfect, but I didn't find any update on Canon website.What can I do?
