Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

When i power my canon powershot A70 the display on the screen will illuminate for 3 seconds then a error will come on the screen E18

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.

PowerShot A70 My camera lens won't seem to open up it comes on and then just beeps, E18 comes up in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.

Hi there, I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and just lately when you try to turn it on it comes up with a message that says E24. I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this message. It turns on for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and displays the E24 message. I was taking photos during a recent wedding I attended and then it cut out suddenly and displayed the E24 and since then will not turn on. Please help me as my brother and his family are arriving soon

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?

This is a problem with the camera lens and yes this can still be fix but you need to have it check on a service center but that price will not be cheap so if I may suggest it will be better to get a new camera..... ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(
