Answers :

If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do\015\012is to take it to the nearest official Canon repair shop and Canon should\015\012fix it for free.\015\012

\015\012If your camera is out of warranty, or if Canon refuses to repair\015\012it for free (happens sometimes if for example they suspect the \015\012camera has not been treated properly) you can try some of\015\012the methods listed here to repair it yourself. These simple methods\015\012have helped a lot of people fix their cameras.\015\012

\015\012Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure your Canon has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode.\015\012

\015\0121) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes,\015\012then put them back in and turn the camera on.

\015\0122) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry\015\012compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the\015\012camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens.\015\012It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should\015\012function fine.

\015\0123) Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. It sounds so simple, but very\015\012often in works.

\015\0124) Try forcing the camera lens:\015\012

\015\012Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and \015\012the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to \015\012fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.\015\012

\015\012Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a \015\012"click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.\015\012

\015\012If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the \015\012camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently \015\012move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" \015\012as it pops back in place. Power the camera on. \015\012

\015\012Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest ring of the lens while turning \015\012the camera on. Listen for a "click". If at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and \015\012off and take lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start improving. \015\012

\015\0125) If that doesn't work, there is an online guide for dismantling Canon cameras and fixing the E18 error. (NOTE: Try this only if your camera is no longer under warranty!)\015\012\015\012It is a great guide with pictures and it can be found here.

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.

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
