For these type of problems battery has no role to play in it. it is a problem in camera. the camera lens system must have got damaged. else the settings in camera must have got changed.

Camera doesnot come on. The lens comes out twice or thrice and then disply says "turn the power off and on again". Same thing happens every time I put the camera on.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success.

When I push the power button, the lens cap comes out and on the screen is a very brief shot of what the camera is aimed at. The camera stays engaged for one second and the lens cap goes retreats back into...

Try to remove the rechargeable battery and use a battery of the same type but an alkaline like the energizer. Sometime rechargeable battery malfunctions that it seems fully charged but actually is not. If the camera continue to power on when you replace the battery it simply means that your problem is in the battery.

Canon Sure Shot A75 Turn on camera, lens partially comes out, beeps E18 appears & then it shuts down. Changed batteries but nothing happens.


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Camera just froze up.

Try Rebooting the camera. Take out the existing batteries and insert some new ones. Then, turn it on and the lens should go back inside!

Hope this helps.
