Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black screen, loud beeping when opened, doesn't work

My camera worked fine on Thursday morning (it's Saturday now) but last night, it was accidentally opened. No big deal, I thought, as I tried to shut the lens cover. But the lens wouldn't retract and when I turn the camera on (open the front cover), all my camera does is beep several times twice and the lens moves out and in and out a little bit. But it won't go back in at all if I try to close the cover and the camera shuts off. The LCD lights up with the canon logo and then is still lit up but black the entire time with "E18" in the bottom left corner. I tried recharging my battery, thinking it might just be SO dead the camera can't even shut off properly. That didn't help. It won't take any pictures, let me view the pictures, or anything.

Any suggestions?

The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. But please first try the listed Fix #2. I heard that fix particularly works well for a camera who's battery had run down with the lens open. Please post back here with a follow up comment if any of the fixes work:

SOURCE: Lens won't retract

IF you are receiving an "E18" Error message all you have to do is make sure that there is nothing blocking the camera lens from coming out (or going back into) the camera. I had this problem and I had to do a little blowing on it, pushing it (carefully), but mess with it for awhile. If its caused by the same problem that I had that should fix it!

I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,


The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.

My Emachines computer switches on fine but the screen goes into hibernation mode and says "no Signal" as if the base unit isn't switched on (but it is). It's only 2 years old and has a Acer...


Hi there,
If the machine switches on fine then it means it passed the POST process. try to unplug it from the outlet and press and hold the power button for about 20 sec to drain the flea power see if that will take the computer out of hibernation. If that doesn't work you might have to reseat the memory from it's place.
I don't think there's something wrong with the screen the fact that it displays No Signal tells that the screen is active but gets no Valid signal from the tower.
Hope this helps!

Kodak md853


hi! my sister-in-law gave me a MD853 camera last week from Canada. I used it over the weekend when we went on a trip and the pictures and videos i took were great. Last night, my daughter took a picture of me and when she took a picture of her brother, there was only white on the screen...like a moving white sheet with colored edges. I thought she destroyed it or something. I tried to use it but now the screen is all black...last night only the video worked but this morning everything is black. The other programs in the camera works so i suspect the problem must be in the lens. I'm in the Philippines and if I send it back to Canada for repairs it would just take a long time and it will be expensive to send it back. What can I do? I really love this camera... help!!!
