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.

Hello, my name is John. I had got this camera for christmas and as soon as I open upen the box and go ahead and try to play with it, it turns on and then immeditly the screen turns black.


If it shuts off again, it's because you're using batteries that are not powerful enough; NiMH are the best bet for cameras. If the camera is working, but there's no display, try pressing the DISP button until the image shows.

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.
