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.

Alright.. Heres the question. Me and my nephew put his Sanyo digital camera onto his handel bars. We tied it on there good to go a bike cam but some how when he was messing with it, if fell when he was riding and he thinks he ran it over. The lence won't go back in and also it turns on for a second then clicks off. We put it on the charger thinking it was dead and the power light blinks like it would when it charges but nothing happened yet. (He was riding on gras by the way) Could it be broken?

I have seen this a few times, there are some plastic parts that get broken easily in those point and shoot digital cams, when that first happened to me i found a lot of online "tutorials" for it, but the truth is that is broken and it is not very exp ... Sanyo Xacti VPC-T700 Digital Camera

I have a new D40 and I have had the same problem twice already on two separate occasions. I go to click to take a picture, and it does not take. Nothing happens at all. I try again and nothing happens. I try to refocus, but it does not help. I have to turn it off and on again to get it to work and click to take the picture. Thinking of if I should get the D3000 instead. Any thoughts on that and why this happens?

When the problem is happening, does the battery indicator show empty? ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Nikon cooplix 4300 worked for 5 years fine now it will turn on take one picture and then when I press the button to take another picture it won't work (the button physical won't go down to take the picture). If I turn it off and turn it back on again, it does the same thing, takes one picture and then nothing. I think something is wrong with the button?

What does the battery icon show? If it shows an almost depleted battery the camera will only let you take one picture, then disable it from taking any more.\015\012\015\012It's possible the battery won't hold a charge, so you should consider te ... Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera

I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture. In a couple seconds it turns to green and I can take the picture, but all of a sudden the light stopped going on at all. so when I press the button, nothing happens. I was thinking maybe it's a battery problem, but I can't figure out where to put batteris in the camera! I got it used, so I've never done it be

I own a CANON EOS REBEL T1i EOS 500D. I used it in perfect order last saturday, went to use it yesterday afternoon and i have nothing viewing on the LCD. The camera still takes photos fine.

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

Power problem I was charging camera using 4.5 DC volt socket on Camera, next I switch on camera so Lens head came out, accidentally power pin came off from camera and lens will not go back. Now nothing happening to camera when power cord connected or with battery, camera will not switch on at all including power lite does not come on with power cord connected. Look like it may have blown fuse in camera or something else serious. Any solution which I can try? I'm a very handy man with good too

I sounds like coincidently something in the camera failed. I doubt very much that simply pulling the power from the camera would cause damage. \015\012\015\012In anycase, if you were to open the camera, you would see that all the circuit ... Olympus FE-220 Digital Camera

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

I was given an old sony fd200 digital camera (that takes the old floppy discs!) to use momentarily until I get a new camera - BUT it doesn't have a manual. I used it years ago but its been awhile.

Olympus FE-230 7.1 Megapixel. When I turn on the Camera. The display screen is a light purple. Unfocused and lines through it. I thought maybe it was just the screen display but as I went to take a picture. Thats exactly how they came out. I cleaned the tip of the lense thinking maybe it was smudged or something. Still nothing. Does this happen often?

When the Camera Is In Manual Mode, It will not Change Focus... I spin the wheel and nothing happens. Also i have just discovered in this mode, if i take a photo without the flash on, it will come out black, even with very good lighting, and when the flash is on, its still rather dark and its only the immediate area, (you can't see the background) What is going on???
