Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
I can't turn on my camera. When I turn it on it beeps couple times then error E18 comes onto the screen and turns off. I read that I had some problem with my lens. How I can fix that? Canon Repair costs me as much as money that I can buy a new camera.
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:
