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??
