Lens errors are 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. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are 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.

Zoom on nikon d5100


In either mode, you're zooming by turning the zoom ring on the lens? In live view mode, if you zoom in by pressing the magnifying glass button, all you're doing is zooming the display, not the image itself.

Canon S3 is will not zoom, buttons will not work, and when viewing the photos, it zooms through them quickly and will not stop!


It sounds as though it may need to be serviced. If you do need to get it serviced, here's the place: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the Canons and nothing else. They do excellent work and they are not much at all in terms of cost. You may want to try emailing them and explain the problem, I'm sure they've seen it before. Good luck with it.

When I try to zoom, screen goes black and "E18" appears in bottom corner


I won't say this is a solution but to prevent the lens retraction E18 message which seems to be common with Canon zoom lenses, I put the extension tube on mine. Sometimes I put a polarizer lens on it but usually I just leave it on to protect the lens when it is on. I have dropped it (on the carpeting at home) and never had a problem. If you have a Canon with a zoom lens, get a lens hood for it ASAP!! My wife's A520 has one on hers too. No problems.
There are lots of other places on the web with suggested fixes. Keep looking and keep enjoying this camera. Merry Christmas all.

LCD Screen Black/Blank. ? ? ?


Perhaps you have quick view turned off in the setup menus. There's no way the CCD is the problem as the camera takes pictures.

Screen is showing E18


The E18 error message relates to a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix you problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
