Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
Every time i put in freshly charged (new) batteries, i take a couple of pictures then the camera tells me to change the batteries>???? any ideas??
E18 is a lens error that needs to be serviced by Canon technicians. You may qualify to replace your S3 for a flat rate or to repair, but it is nothing that you can fix at home.
As for the batteries, what brand? If they are rechargable, make sure they haven't been drained-try them in another device perhaps. I drained mine by leaving them on the charger too long and I had the same issue. Try another set of batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a pencil eraser to get rid of any residue or oxidation that may have taken place.
If none of this helps, call Canon for service or other option to upgrade for a deep discounted rate. Sometimes it's cheaper than to fix it if you are out of your one year manufacturer's warranty.
Hope this helps!
