    the same thing happened to me,but when i turn it on....it says there is a dead battery....but they are brand new

    This camera is only one year old and will not come on. It reads "low battery" even when I buy new batteries. I've tried different batteries and none will work. Is there specific battery that need to be used?

    Lense won't go back in and it beeps when I turn in on. Have put new battereies in but this doesn't help.

  • Ornery Juan Dec 22, 2007

    I took camera apart. Then I used rubbing alcohol around the lense where it retracts back in. Then I used a high quality oil used on Grandfather and other mechanical clocks to oil the camera. The oil does NOT attract dirt. Then with the camera laying down with lense pointing up, I turned the camera on and off quite a few times to help work the oil down into the camera into the gears. It seems to be working now.

Lens wont go in


I had the same problem, my workaround was:
1. turn on the camera, you will hear some beeping as the lens tries to raise from the body of the camera
2. wait until the camera turns off
3. pull the lens gently until you hear a 'click'
4. turn on the camera again, it will work normally (hopefully)

Another interesting thing, you can switch on the camera in "play mode" only, by holding down the play button on the back while pressing the power button. In that way, the lens will not raise and you can copy the images.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Instructions

If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is to take it to the nearest official Canon repair shop and Canon should fix it for free.

If your camera is out of warranty, or if Canon refuses to repair it for free (happens sometimes if for example they suspect the camera has not been treated properly) you can try some of the methods listed here to repair it yourself. These simple methods have helped a lot of people fix their cameras.

Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure your Canon has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode.

1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on.

2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine.

3) Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. It sounds so simple, but very often in works.

4) Try forcing the camera lens:

Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.

Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.

If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.

Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start improving.

5) If that doesn't work, there is an online guide for dismantling Canon cameras and fixing the E18 error. (NOTE: Try this only if your camera is no longer under warranty!) It is a great guide with pictures and it can be found here.

There are 2 other guides, one Bulgarian and one Estonian with the take apart procedure for Canon cameras. They are not in english but have a lot of pictures which help with the process.

- Bulgarian guide
- Estonian guide

Why is the camera beeping?


I had t he three beep problem and also the lens was open. I tried batteries - then i noticed the lens was slightly bent - i tried straightening and it snapped and went into place. then i tried turning it on and it was fine and when i turned it off the lens closed.

Maybe your lens is bent.

get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time you will hear a clicking noise which is normal once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right
and then hopefully it should work after that
