I had a similar problem like this...and I typed in the error code for a similar camera...and they said I had to pay to get it fixed when all I had to do was pull on the lens a little...it was kinda stuck in. Try that!

I also had similar problem and found that the basic design of this machine is faulty. After four or five zooms in and out operations the whole system crashes, then error message comes, very bad desgn. The company has to look for the solution.

LENS ERROR ON KEEPS COMMING UP.HOW DO YOU RESTART IT?! WHY TELL YOU TO RESTART IT WHEN YOU DONT KNOW HOW TOO?IVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE


Lens errors are fairly common. As you've found, the recommendation to restart (turning the camera off and then back on again) usually does not work. 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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Canon powersho SD750, restart camera


Hi

Your lens is defective needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced if you are seeing an error message that reads "E:18" or "Lens error, restart camera" or something similar. Turning the camera off and back on again will not fix the problem unfortunately.

There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

I know this because I own one that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')

Just let us know if we can help! Good luck from

Lens Error


It is just telling you to try to turn the camera off and back on. This usually doesn't self correct and will need to be serviced. I would call Canon for support and see what the options are for service or upgrade.

Hope this helps!
