SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Lens Error

I had the same problem and fortunately for me it was simple to fix. I gave it a little push & twist on the lens and to my surprise the lens retracted and now the camera works fine. Good Luck!

SOURCE: E 18 message

Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) 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'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:

SOURCE: the camera does shut off

Hi,

E16 error means that the lens mechanism is jammed, and the lens cannot extend/retract.
Follow the steps provided below to solve this problem.
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for 10 minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on. If this does not work then try the compressed air. With a fine tip blow off the gun and dry compressed air set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function as fine. If this also does not work then you need to force the lens out.

Hope this helps.

Shane

You have a bad CCD imager. Find a repair shop that can strip a CCD from a camera with a bad lens. This is the least costly repair.

Why an ei6 error msg on canona630 suddenly after just taking pix?


The E16 error is a circuit board problem and is not user fixable. It needs to go to a Canon service facility. Try to get it fixed under warranty, if possible. If not, get an estimate before repairing, as price may be prohibitive. Weigh repair costs against replacing with a new camera.

HP Pavilion dv6337us screen problem


Place you cursor on a blank spot on the black area, Hold the left mouse/touchpad button down and drag it back down to the bottom of the screen. That should get you back to where you want things to be.
If that fixes it, please return here to rank this as solved. If it doesn't, let me know and we'll see what else we can come up with. ;o)
