Camera was dropped and now the lens will not retract. I can turn the camera on and Canon appears with the welcome sound but then the screen goes black ad the camera makes what can be described as a warning kind of buzzing sound and E18 appears in the lower left hand corner. I removed the battery and charged it but that made no difference.

Perhaps the lens got bumped (if the camera was one when it was dropped) and is out of place. Mine did the same and I sent it in (it was within warranty) and Canon fixed it.

hi, the camera must also be giving a lens error and must be making a whirring sound when turned on, hold the camera with camera off bang it with flat of hand , a few times , if this does not work , repeat it with camera on, even if this does not, when turning the camera on gently apply pressure on the front of the lens, do this just once , all the above fails , camera has to be service , lens unit may have to be changed

Lumix DMC FZ35 Lens Opens and Retracts Continually When Turning the Camera on.


it sounds like it has slipped a gear in the lens.. you could try to manually push the lens in when it comes out and that might reset it but it also might break it.. best is to send it back to panasonic.. is a easy fix

My digicam lens keeps on moving... coming in and coming out and the screen says "ACCES"


Hi,

The ACCESS error message displays when there is an internal malfunction or a malfunction with the Lens. This may also appear when accessing the Memory Stick for reading or writing the data. If the Lens is moving in and out then follow the steps mentioned below. The error message normally displays with the issue with the Lens. Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try power resetting the Camera.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Re-insert the battery pack and check if the Lens retracts.
You can also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE option from the Setup 1 Menu of the Camera to OK. (Menu-->Setup-->Setup 1-->Initialize-->OK.)

This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa

Camera won't turn on - makes strange sound


This is a very common issue with digital camera on either the lens gears have to be replaced or the lens barrel need replacing. I rebuild these lenses all the time for 75.00 plus shipping and the turn around is normally less then a week. if you still need help fell free to contact me at mike@digitalcamrepair.com

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.
