Canon Powershot S410: cannot turn it on

I downloaded my pictures to my computer before I left for my vacation. Everything was fine. The first day on my vacation, I wanted to take a picture but could not turn the camera on and when I finally turned it on, it said memory card error. I thought the battery might be low. I recharged the battery and used it to take a few pictures the next day, then I could not turn the camera on again. I though the battery might be bad. I bought a new battery charged it and turned it on and downloaded the pictures to my computer. Now I could not turn the camera on.When I finally turned it on, the lense does not come out and nothing come up on the LED. The second time I turned it on, it said memory card error. Now I cannot even turn the camero on.

Can you help me or point me to some direction?

Thanks.

Personally, I would ring Canon and ask for some idea of what might be the problem, and go from there. I assume it is out of guarantee, otherwise I would certainly have it back to them under guarantee. However, it can cost more than a new one to get repaired in some cases if out of guarantee. It could be as simple as needing some contacts cleaning of grease in the battery housing - try cleaning this first is one of the most obvious.

Image sensor CCD chip is failing & requires replacing unfortunately, contact your nearest Canon Service Center for Estimate, but probably more economical to replace camera.

Hello! i own a canon s410 powershot,the camera got broken,i was given a canon a530 powershot and i want to use the software that came with s410,is that possible?my next question is about the the windows...


No, it's not likely to be compatible. The problem is that Canon did not update the drivers for many of its older cameras under the Vista operating system. So you're likely to run into problems downloading directly from the camera using the software. But there are other options, such as using an inxepensive card reader (can get them online for $2) to download your photos:

But back to your S410, what exactly is wrong with it? By chance if it's taking black, pink, or distorted pictures, please see this:

Canon powershot s410 problem


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Has the camera been exposed to heat? If left in a hot car, the display gets cooked. Luckily mine was still in warranty and Canon gave me a new one. I really like it.
