Cannon Powershot S21S is stuck on on/ A message E18 came up on the blank screen in the let hand corner. changed the batteries plus the lithium battery.


Hi,

"E18" indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover in your camera .This error appears where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting .The error may also be displayed if the lens camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera.Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting. Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred and might require service from canon.Or else try pressing the power button on and held it down while extending the zoom lens. The lens will extend out and the camera will be freed from the error.


Thank you !!

Our G9 is stuck with the lens zoomed out. If we turn it on or turn it off, no change, stuck.


Go with this place: www.camerasandparts.com They charge $89 for the lens error service package on the G9 and they do excellent work. The neat thing with them is they don't just do the repair, they service the camera up as well, plus shipping going back is included in their service package too which is nice. Much more affordable than Canon and they are experts on the Powershots, the Canons are all they specialize in! I hope that helps you with getting it going again.

Canon A540 powershot freezes with Zoom lense still out.


Probably the most common failure for all digital cameras, a lens error. 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. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Canon powershot A560


you need to get camera serviced-usually lens jumps off track or is crooked and gets jamed-did camera get dropped?if older model than 1 yr usually 100-125 to repair-if new model still in warranty they will tell you someone broke it and it's not covered-as a last resort if you are going to toss camera anyway put pressure on lens as you try to zoom in and out or put lens between teeth and try to force back in place

Zoom will not retract


Dear Grammie,

You have either experienced a lens error or your zoom dial is broken (both usually caused by some sort of impact damage, but which can be spontaneously occuring).

Look for an error message on your camera's LCD screen such as "E18," or "lens error restart camera." If you do not see a lens error but simply cannot retract your zom lens (go into wide angle mode) via the zoom lever then it simply maybe a broken command dial. Either way, however, you will need to have the camera serviced in all likelihood. Call tech support at 1-800-828-4040 M-F from 8 am to 12 midnight EST and Saturdays until 8 pm EST. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Lens error


Powershot S3 IS: lens error message, lens juddering on startup but not coming out. Tried all tricks on internet without success, so decided to dismantle camera. Localised fault to optical position encoder on first transfer gear of the ultrasonic motor which controls lens position. Sensor was misaligned and/or dirty, so the camera could not detect motor rotation. Removed sensor, cleaned it, glued back in position with cyanoacrylate glue. Reassembled camera (only one internal bolt left over - not bad!) Working 100% again.
