Question about Canon PowerShot S70 Digital Camera

Canon s70 won't stay on

Lens cover (on off slider) makes scratchy noise when moved to the on position and won't stay there unless held with a finger. I.E. it doesn't lock in the on position and keeps turning off. Is there any way to remove the cover to fix it?

Hi i had an e18 error appear and the lens was stuck. the lens is now going in and out but the focus is compleatley shot every thing is blured any ideas?? thanks


Hi,

"E18" indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover in your camera .This error appears where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting .The error may also be displayed if the lens camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera.Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting. Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred and might require service from canon. Or else try pressing the power button on and held it down while extending the zoom lens. The lens will extend out and the camera will be freed from the error.

Thank you !!

there should be a loop on the side....just run your cord through there and that will hold your lens cover, then you can put it back on when you are done takin pictures

Lens cover stuck DSC600


You may have the same problem that i had. It does involve taking the camera apart. Not overly difficult - just fiddly.
Let me know and i'll talk you thro' it

It's about $124 repair charge if your camera is out of warranty. I called Canon and the guy said to be sure the batteries are now wearing down (which I charged mine last night thinking that was the issue and it doesn't appear to be, however, I'm going to buy some new ones JUST to be sure), but other than that it would have to be serviced because it's something internal. The only place to have it serviced is in Illinois, so it's a send off, he said other Canon shops only service SLR's, not these little automatic ones. HTH...it really stinks to have my camera malfunction at the end of ball season!

Slider on olympus c60 broken


Probably!

The slider is held in its groove by a plastic liner and part of mine wore away with the upshot that when I slid it open, the tiny pin on the slider dropped back a little way. We are only talking a tiny amount here but it was enough to activate the switch to reclose the lens so the thing was sliding in and out of its own accord as I rocked the slider.

I simply superglued in a tiny piece of plastic in where the worn away bit was and it cured it!

Lens cover slide stuck closed


Take a butter knife and slide it where the crease is. move the close/open button till it open it could just be stuck due to moisture. Hope this helps.
