If you have charged the battery many times then after 3 years that could be to 90% your problem. Firstly try to clean the battery contacts and camera contactswith cleaning alcohol or contact cleaner. If that does not help, it is a new battery.

The possibilities to consider for this kind of problem are quite a number
the bateries you are using might be defective, so you can get a new set of bateries with the voltage and wattage or charge the old one appropriately..
the contact for the battery could be the problem if there is rust in it. this would need cleaning..
the power switch of the camera might also be faulty, this would require you to take the camera to a repairer.. if you got warranty on it you can consider using it or look for a good engineer around you to fix it..
All the battery have a life time fixed working hours. Your battery is charged but he complete is working time. Thats why these msg will come. Dont warry use the battery when you see the power going down after a while of charging then change the battery and buy new 1. Good luck.
Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.
It is recommended that if batteries are not going to be used for long periods they should be removed from the camera altogether during that time.
If you are referring to rechargeables the ability to retain charge is effected both by the age of the battery and the number of times it has been recharged.
Canon cameras are generally one of the better cameras in terms of being economic on power. It is likely that this problem is battery related and not camera related.
As it is also important not to mix old and new batteries together - I would recommend that you purchase new rechargeables. Three new rechargeables batteries in your Canon should resolve your problem and give the best results.
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.
hi - just managed to get mine working again after adventure in washing machine 6 months ago! I was previously at the same point i.e. not possible to turn camera off. I have just removed all ribbons from front pcb as well as the connection from the control panel ribbon under the lcd. Cleaned all ribbon contacts with alcohol & reassembled - now it works.
