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

Hi I my new(3 months old ) PowerShot SD1300 IS camera has a problem. Initially worked fine ,but suddenly it is not working. Issue is it will power up only once after many (5 to 6 hrs) put idle.When powerd...


PCB? Are you referring to a Printed Circuit Board if so then you are right it's a warranty issue. If you have the receipt of purchase in the USA and have friends or family living in the USA you could send the camera to them to forward onto the USA Canon repair depot. Once repaired the camera would be returned to your friend or family who in tern would forward it back to you. Also if the Canon service in your country said it was the PCB without looking then it might be a known problem with this model. OR because it's an American market camera they don't want anything to do with it.

I bought a new canon 50d in july and used it through the summer sporadically in preparation for an overseas trip. Periodically got an error 30 message on the LCD but always ok after turning camera on/off....


Sorry about the trouble you're having with the camera. I searched the manual for error code 30, but I found nothing.

You could try Ritz, but I think you'll find they're probably not set up for repairs. Since the camera is less than a year old, I would think it is covered under a Canon warranty. Having a third party attempt repairs would probably violate the terms of the warranty, so you might reconsider that. I suggest arranging for Canon factory service to make the repairs for you instead. You can arrange for that via the link provided below:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ServiceLocatorAct&fcategoryid=226&modelid=17499

Lastly, there is an updated version of the firmware for your camera. Released 7/30/09 it is probably not installed since you purchased your 50D prior to then and due to your admitted "technology challenged" status. This update may help with the error, but there is little info I could find about it. Again, the folks at Canon can help you out best with this.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

Camera gives E18 error!!!


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.

Noisy sound and white particles are comming with flash light


The noisy sound is not a good sign as it means that there's something wrong with the lens alignment mechanism. I suggest you take it for a service since the cam is only 3 months old and still under warrany

Sai.

Did you accidentally hit the "DISPLAY" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the display on and off to save batteries.

Panasonic lumix -fx01 digicam isnt responding


After posting on here I took my FX01 to a repair centre and was informed the motherboard had died. They couldn't give a specific reason for this, saying it could be anything relating to humidity, extreme temperatures, static, even just a slight knock, etc. Cost of repair was higher than purchase of a new camera so I grudgingly went for that option. I hope you guys have better luck!
