Someone would need the brand and model of your camera before that code can be diagnosed. Please supply that in a followup post on this thread. Thanks.

I have a Z981 Camera. I will be out of the country for a few weeks. Can I take a supply of Alkaline "AA" batteries to use. Recharging will be a problem, but I don't want to damage my...


Yes, alkaline batteries will work fine. You might want to consider lithiums instead, however. They cost more but last longer, so you won't need to carry as many.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera showing code E18


Hello there,
The 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.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. 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.
Let me know how it goes.

I have a Nikon coolpix L18 and can only take around 10 pics wiht it, with alkaline aa batteries, before I get the message "batteries exhausted". What can I do? Is the camer defective?


Well, alkaline batteries don't last long in a power-draining camera like the Coolpix. Try some rechargeables and keep spares fully charged.

Lense error, restart your camera


If i told you to smack it around a bit would ytou believe me?

But that is the fix Canon use to get rid of these errors 98% of the time.
Charge or change the battery, insert it tuen camer on when it goes off smack it hard into your palm a few times and turn it back on.
Just incase there is some dirt/dust stopping the lens from extending blow a can of compressed air around it and give it another few slaps . Sometimes after about 20-30 ngoes of this the camera will jump back into service Believe me it does work nearly all the time Canon charged me $90 to do this trick

Camera will not start


Be sure the batteries that were in the camrea did not leak. You can use a pencil eraser to lightly rub on the battery contacts to make sure they are clean and reinstall the new batteries. This may fix the issue also since the contacts "may" have oxidized.

Lens problem


I have had the same problem with a different camera, the problem started when I did not have sufficient battery charge to turn the camera off completely. The camera shut down, but the lense did not retract.
You can try a few things:
First try remove the batteries and holding the power button as if you are going to start the camera, then reinsert and try again. (make sure they are fully charged first)
You can try connecting the camer to the computer before you turn it on. Connected to the computer the camer goes through a slightly different start up procedure.
Try switching it to playback mode on restart.
If these fail I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve, but need to know the answer to these questions:
1. has it suffered water damage?
2. has it been dropped recently?
3. what happend when the lense did not close properly? Is this the first time?
4. Can you access the menus when "restart camera" is on screen?
Just post a comment back
