    i have this same problem... however, it started happening right after i had the phone flashed/unlocked for another service provider. i went from verizon to metro pcs. don't know if it was a coincidence or if the "flash" disabled or conflicted with the camera.



    updating all drivers and firmware for the phone certainly has crossed my mind, but i've been a little hesitant to do so, in fear of disabling/conflicting with the "flash" i just paid for....

That could be a hardware or software problem. Back-up the memory stored inside the phone, then have it reformatted and new software installed. If that doesn't work, bring it to a technician and have him take a look. If the phone came with a warranty you can have it fixed for free.

This should also work for your camera.

the E18 displayed on the LCD is an error code which means the zoom lens is stuck or obstructed when trying to extend. This is a common problem with many Canon compact digital camera models.

you can read more about this error code and a list of many of the cameras affected on this webpage: www.e18error.com

one possible cause for this error condition is something obstructing the tiny geartrain that operates the zoom lens (dirt, sand, etc). It may be possible for you to recover from this error by dismantling the camera and dislodging whatever is obstructing the lens or lens geartrain. Sending the camera in for professional repair will probably cost you more than buying a new camera, so it's worth your while attempting this repair yourself if you're up to it.

several of the Canon digital cameras I've seen are constructed in a similar manner and luckily use screws to hold the case together, allowing for disassembly.

over in the Teardown section here on ifixit.com, I've posted pictures of the stepsrequired to fully disassemble a Canon PowerShot S500 digital camera. Even if you have a different model Canon camera with an E18 error, you may find these photos give you an idea of what's involved in the repair.

Sounds like the camera has gone bad. They can have internal damage also causing the camera to not be able to turn it on. Try to take the phone in and have them replace the camera.

LG VX8700 - No sound coming from speaker


Sounds just like the problem I had. I took the phone apart and removed the internal speaker. Tried the contacts with another speaker from another phone...and it worked.This leads me to believe that the internal speaker has failed. I am now on the hunt to get a replacement speaker.

LG GLimmer ring


From what I've read online, there is no way to change this and LG has no intention of doing any firmware updates to change it. I guess we have to live with it. I actually kind of like it.

I suggest reducing the size of the SD card to a 512mb and you should have no problem. There have been problems with the 1GB for these phones and I mhave 2 of these phones and they both have 512mb with no problem any larger and they keep giving error messages
