Re: Camera shows an error E30 message

Hi Chittu, This error usually happens when there's problem reading and writing from the Flash memory card (CF). Did you try to pull the memory card before the camera finished writing data? Here's what you should do - try using another memory card. If it works, it means that the original one is damaged. Let me know if this helped. Please rank this post.

Not working always show "turn thepower off and on

I'm sorry that the Camera is displaying the error message. "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" displays on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Please follow the below steps to perform a power reset.

·Turn off the camera.
·Remove the battery pack.
·Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
·Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
·Reinsert the battery pack.
·Turn on the camera.

Also try initializing the Camera if you're able to access the Menu items on the Camera. The Initialize option will be available underSetup or Main settings Sub Menus.

If the issue persists again, service is required. Pleaseclick hearto locate the service center near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if your require any clarifications.

The display screen shows " file error " only.

The manual can be viewed here:

I don't see anything about a file error message, though....

Have you tried using a different memory card, or formatting the one you have?

The System Error message displays when the files on the recording media have been copied or deleted repeatedly on a computer. Backup the files on your computer, then format the recording media in the camera to resolve this issue.
Formatting the Memory will erase all the data stored in the Memory Stick.
If the error message displays after formatting the Memory Stick, then try using a different Memory Stick media. Once the Memory Stick is inserted, perform manual power reset of the Camera.
To reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Later, re-insert the Battery pack in the Camera to resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When i turn on, it says lens error, restart camera - i"ve turned the camera on and off several times and nothing happens, the error message continues to show. I've taken the battery out and put back in but...

Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

The camera screen displays error message

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
