It's you CCD - charged coupling device, eye of the camera. You can have it repaired. Go to Canon USA or if out of warranty and in the florida area,
call 305-653-7355.

Sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This turns the screen on and off in photo mode to save batteries (you'd then use the optical viewfinder in its place). Just press the button one more time with the camera turned on.

Can't take a picture or even see an image in picture mode. I get an error message E18? I am able to look at photos taken in the past.


SkiPowder, the E18 error is 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.
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. Have already fixed several cameras with this problem by using these methods:

Digital Camera Malfunction


mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!

Screen won't display pictures!


From what you are writing it seems that the camera works fine and that the screen is also ok, FIrst of all make sure you have the memory card inside the camera, if you have it in, then take it out,clean it up a little and the slot also. also you can connect your camera to the computer and check if the photos are in the camera or not. Then I would suggest you make sure in the menu that photos are allowd to be displayed. If you have more questions and you made all this post it here and i'll what else we can do.
