This might not work with all cameras, but try it anyway...
Take out your battery and memory card. Put them back in with the battery being first. Try and charge.
You might still have problems charging with the USB lead to the camera. In such a case, you should buy a proper charger that you can put the battery into and charge it. Sometimes charging through the camera doesn't work.
Regardless of the size of the memory card, the largest video file you can create on the L18 is 2GB. You can stop recording one clip and then record another and another, and then combine them on a computer to create longer clips. In a Hollywood movie, you seldom see individual scenes as long as five minutes in length. They're usually put together from much shorter clips, changing viewpoints and camera angles.
I have the same camera. I am working out an issue where it shuts off while I'm recording videos. But anyway, my solution for you is relatively simple.
Take a q-tip and dip it in rubbing alcohol. Remove the batteries from the camera, and clean the terminals with the q-tip. This should help remove and prevent the buildup of battery acid.
Put the new bateries back in. If they do not work, replace them with rechargeable batteries. I reccomend rechargeable because they are built better. If you don't want to spend the money on them, look into buying lithium. Duracell sells nice lithium batteries.
I personally reccomend Durracel Lithium batteries from my own personal experience.
The L18 takes two AA batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries you will need to recharge them outside the camera. To save weight, space, and cost, the camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry.
Hi, When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.
Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

We were in the middle of taking pictures on our Nikon L18 and it was in continuous shot mode and the picture froze on the screen...I called tech support and they wanted me to turn the camera in so it could i fixed..it was a BRAND NEW CAMERA!!!! yeah so we just took the batteries out and let it reset...see if that works.
How could I resist assisting someone with the handle 'Charm City'? What I would advise is getting some good quality 2300 mAH or 2500 mAh re-chargeable batteries - although all batteries have a nominal 1.5v output, not all can provide the sustained power necessary for the camera.
