Re: ERROR: code 402 in LED panel

Error code 402 indicates an issue with the SmartMedia card. Make sure that the memory card is properly inserted into the camera. If the card is not the one that was originally packaged with your camera, check to make sure that it meets the camera's requirements. The PDC 640 digital camera accommodates SmartMedia cards at 2 MB, 4 MB and 8 MB capacities. If the condition persists after checking the above, the SmartMedia card may be faulty or corrupted and in need of replacement.

When camera turns on it shows the insignia sign, gives 3 beeps then turns off. What could be the problem?


Hi there 3 beeps means system error. Remove the memory card and try again. If you get the beeps again then the problem occur in Lens. Its stuck from in side. Its happens when the guide pin is damaged or dislocated. In that case you have to visit service center. After remove the card if problem solve then before fix back the card please, format it and use. I hope your problem will solve then. Thanks.

Cannon powershot s2is camera, lense stuck open. I get beeps when I turn it on. Shows error code 18. Shuts off.


Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

It has a lens error. Everytime the camera is turned on it beeps and clicks constantly. It eventually shuts off after displaying "Lens error, restart camera." on the screen.


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Try squeezing the camera very hard or slam the camera in your hand as hard as you can, this usually fixes it.

Canon ixus 500 turns on beeps 4 times,shows E18 on the bottom left of thelcd screen and then turns itself off.


The following blog outlines some repair options for an E18 lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Error code S0042, DIMAGE G600


The S0042 error code relates to a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended)
Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. Let me know if it worked!

Camera will not operate


Use the audio-visual cable that came with your camera and connect your camera to your TV.  Now turn-on your camera and switch to "view mode", e.g., to see a already taken picture on your LCD.  You will not see anything on your LCD but may see an image on your TV, even if the image is "F18". 

I used the above trick to clear an F18 error on an A75.  Right now I am trying to get the camera to focus properly, but somehow the above cleared the F18 error.

If the above does not work, try connecting your camera to your computer's USB port using the other cable that came with the camera.  Your camera will want to be on, and in the "view mode".  I have read that this trick can reset an F18 error.

Good luck.  At least it costs zero to try these two tips.
