There are a number of potential causes but the most likely one is that either the MemoryStick has had the protection switch turned on.

To check, remove the MemoryStick and look underneath it. There's a small physical switch near the electrical contacts; the slider needs to be switched away from the contacts to unlock the memory card.

If this doesn't fix it, then try cleaning the contacts with a cotton bud (US= q tip) moistened with alcohol, and if this doesn't fix it borrow or buy another MemoryStick (when new the camera is usually supplied with a free small capacity MemoryStick which most owners instantly replace with a larger capacity version, so maybe you can try that one).

If that doesn't work then please post a comment and we'll try the next steps.

If I have solved your problem already then please let me know by rating my answer.

E18 error message


I found this on cnet.com Hope it helps.

E18 quick fix

I'm sure that every1 looking at this right now would love to be able to do a quick fix for the dreaded E18 error. Well, I have fixed mine several time in less time that it takes to take a picture. So here it is: This error occurs when the lens is "stuck" or not extending "straight". The error can happen in 3 ways: either when the lens wont "come out", or "comes out" and then retracts, or does not retract at all. Mine did all of these at one stage or another.
1) If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, but then retracts again, do as follow:
Turn the camera off. Place the camera on it's back with the lens facing up and have a look at the "spacing" between the lens and the lens housing. You'll probably notice that the gap is NOT EVEN all the way around. To fix this, simply -VERY GENTLY- press down on the side where the gap is the biggest. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Try powering it back on.
2) If the lens is extended all the time and won't retract at all, do as follow:
Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently, in turn, take the two part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will once again hear a little "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
This has worked for me many times and it seems to happen when the camera has been carried around and possible had a little knock. I hope this is of help to someone else.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC S90 lens problem - fix or buy new?


its better to replace a new one than to repair it and besides you will cost alot if you decide to repair it. although if the cost is not that much then go for repairing it.

Sony Cyber Shot lens extends and retracts, can't take photo


My solution for the M340

I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.

E 18 problem


the E18 means the lens system has a problem. I had it with my S2 and sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Eventually it stopped working. The only solution was sending it to repair, they changed the lens system.

Camera lens


My camera did the same thing. Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (not sure if this helps, but it worked for me)
5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think for some reason my camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.

Similar problem to Green Can't take a picture


Hi there, resoldering the focus motor contacts on the lens unit might be the solution. Replacement of the optical (lens) unit is the ultimate solution. If you want more info please contact me at LIVE Expert Assistance. Best regards, Arpi
