    If a picture is taken there is no image, it remains black. Now it will no longer take any pictures.

    After taking many pics successfully, I suddenly experienced a problem. When the camera is in picture taking mode, there are a few settings displayed on the screen, but I can't see the image I am pointing at, and no picture gets taken. But I can still view older pics. The batteries are fine and the lens extends, and all settings in the Function and Menu modes can be changed.

    In shoot mode -The screen is black, the lens retracts after 2 seconds and E18 appears in lower left corner.  I can review pictures that already are on the card.


    I have searched the manual for any code keys.  I have recharged and replaced the batteries.  
    Help!

    I cant see an image on the screen in picture mode and cannot take a picture. I change the battery to brand new battery but that didnt work also, I can view past picture taken. This is a relatively new camera and I am dissappointed with it. Any solution.

I own a Canon Powershot A70 and after 4 years the LCD went blank, but only for picture taking. I could see the images in the Replay section. All the menus, display, functions are working. I spoke to the Canon representative who told me that this camera is on recall for sensor for image taking has broken down

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:

I can't insert photos below my message without attaching them.


If you simply looking to insert a photo into your email, the simplest way I have found is to copy the image (right click, copy image) and then paste it into your message. Hope this helps!

My olympus e volt 500 will not display image when in shoot mode


There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

Today when i connected my camera to my computer i thought of copying pictures from my pc to my camera. I opened 'My Computer' and opened the folder of my camera. There I pasted one of my photos....


If all the pictures you copied were originally taken with this camera, then it is certainly because you modified this particular image - renamed it or a rotation from portrait to landscape.....

If this is not a picture taken by this camera, then this is normal, camera are usualy able to see only picture it has taken.

Hope this helps

No image display on camera mode


There are different settings. You can view the past photos because you are using the viewer for that, but you have a setting off in the menu. You need to turn on view photo or preview photo after picture taken. I am not sure what it is in the Canon line, but look in your manual for the setting.

Pictures come out blurry and now all images were erased


Yes, just try photo recovery software to rescue the erased photos, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card of your camera in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

What is the Macro function used for? The Macro function allows you to take close-up pictures. Use the Macro mode when you are 8.4” to 19.2” away from your subject. Where is the Reference Manual for the D-390? The Reference Manual is located on the Camedia Master CD-ROM and is available in four languages (English, French, Spanish, and German. The manual can be viewed on your computer screen or printed on your printer. How can I get traditional photo prints from my digital camera? Most photo processing centers or digital printing Kiosks can make traditional photo prints from a digital camera. There are also many on-line photo processors which conveniently deliver prints by mail. You can also make prints yourself if you have a photo quality printer like the Olympus P-400 printer. Why are there so many quality settings? Different quality settings are used for different purposes; for example, lower quality settings can be used to e-mail pictures because of its small file size. Higher quality settings are used for printing photo quality images. What settings should I use to get the best picture quality? The best picture quality setting on the D-390 is SHQ (Super High Quality). The SHQ file is the largest of all four quality settings. The image file size is approximately 786K. What is the video output used for? The video output is used for viewing images from your camera to a TV. A slideshow can be accomplished by using the camera hooked to the TV or recorded from a VCR. When taking macro images, can I use the viewfinder? Since the viewfinder sees the subject different than the picture taking lens, we recommend using the LCD monitor screen for taking macro pictures. The image previewed on the LCD monitor will be the exact image that is taken. How do I make a Panorama picture? You can easily make panorama pictures with your D-390 by “stitching” together multiple pictures. First, activate the panorama mode on the camera by selecting Mode Menu - Camera - Panorama. Take your pictures while making sure to overlap the edges of the images. Download your pictures to a computer and then use the “Panorama” function in Camedia Master to stitch them together. For more detailed information, please refer to the camera documentation. What is movie mode function? The movie mode function allows you to record short movie clips. The recorded movies can be played back or stored as still images using the cameras index function. Please note that the D-390 does not record sound in the movie mode. Can I add sound to a movie made with my D-390? The D-390 does not record sound in the movie mode. What is the best way to e-mail images? E-mailing pictures that were taken with your camera is as easy as attaching a file to your message.
