Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I purchased a new canon power shot is March 29 05 at Wall Mart photo shop. The lens is will not retract . The problem occurred February 6. Battery ok ; getting a message E 18. How can I fix the problem or how do get it repaired ?

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 ...
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
