So i was having the same probelm with my camera and after some researching I found out that its a lens probelm. Some people in some forums had said to turn the camera and put a towel around the lens and try to push the lens back in. I thought what the heck it sounds crazy but it can't be any worse than where I'm at now. So I did it and it worked! The camera actually turned on and no more beeps!!! YAY! The only thing is the zoom no longer works on it so I am going to try to push on the lens a little more I guess. I will update when I find out more. Let me know if any of you try this and if it worked for you!

Why does the lens comes out then goes back in and I cant take any pictures


Rosalie, try re-charging/replacing the battery. Although the lens comes out and retracts, the battery may be weak. good luck

My olympus fe 330 lens wont go in and cant take picture and see my pictures also. Beeping noise is on like memory card is full. Help me.


maybe you should clear up your memory card and release disk space. and if the camera still have the nosie,maybe there is something wrong with your lens. the lens maybe too loose or too tight.it has something to do with the lens mount.

E 18 problem


Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) are fairly common. 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 ...

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:

LENSE WON'T CLOSE


try charging the camera. to full capacity. then turn it on.

could be a dead battery

i would not try to push the lens in, it might cause more harm than good.

if that doesnt help you might have a broken gear in the lens retracting mechanics.

My camera wont take the picture and screen is black


Be sure to fully charge your batteries if rechargeable - at least 14 hours. Check that your card door is closed good - it's common for the latch to break. There's a switch at the top of the door that has to close before it'll turn on.
