A small band of tape on the inside rim should provide a snug fit.

Camera has black screen and lens goes in and out quickly error e18 come up before it shuts off

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Error code E 18 what does this mean?

E18 on older Canon cameras stands for "lens error". 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 ...

I have a Nikon AF-SNIKKOR 18-55mm 1.3.5-5.6GII ED and it is ''locked'' at 55. I cannot get it to zoom in. The problem started after the lens was shaken by my camera bag falling to the fall....any...

Sounds like the lens is jammed and the fall did some damage to the lens. You could apply a little more force to the zoom and it may or may not pop back into place. It is work a try since impact/shock is not covered be the warranty; and the cost of repair is almost as much as a new lens.

The lens cover won't close when powered off

I am loath to suggest hitting it hard (which is what I usually do to mine!) but one solution that tends to work well on the TZ3 is to pop the end of a shop-vac over it when it's turned on. This will **** out any gunk that has got in there that may be blocking it.

Canon S2 IS

Your camera has the know issue of Stuck shutter, whichhappens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is notused.

Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.

Definitely requires th skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.

If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.

Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S2".

Best regards,

Lense cover keeps falling off

The spring must have grown tired, or displaced. If you don?t want to loose it in the meantime, you can glue a string one side to the cover and one side to the camera?s body using small points of super glue. But a more creative solution would be to get to a cannon selling shop and nag them to help you get a new one, or go to a second hand shop and look for a standard cover that?s a good fit for your lense.
