Had the same problem after 2 years and 12000 shots on the camera.
couldn't fix it myself using above suggestions.
The easiest solution is to buy a new camera.

Little knowledge is dangerous. The best way is bring the camera to a qualified technician, Do try to consult the service center for repair but first ask for the charge because if you fail they might charge big enough that can buy new camera better than those you purchase before....... JAgger

The Ei18 error is so infamous that it now has it's own wikipedia entry & webpage! See below: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E18_error http://www.e18error.com/ Tips on how to try & fix it are as follows: Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure your Canon has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode. 1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on. 2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) 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 fine. 3) Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. It sounds so simple, but very often in works. 4) Try forcing the camera lens: Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended. Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on. If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on. Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start improving. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Be sure that you have installed he driver correctly ..and the cable is well plugged...,another thing to check is the camera's display and see if it asks for a connection confirmation in the moment you plug it in ...if it does..choose PC connect ..and after that will work ..
also check into the device manager and see if the camera is present there ..even if it appears in yellow with an ask sign on it ...this meaning that the driver is not installed or damaged or not the proper one..

select the operation system ..download ..reinstall and go for it ...but first check what I suggested..

My R3000 touchpad would not scrolll or allow double-tap. I downloaded the synaptics driver, not the ALPS driver on Compaq's site, and it works perfectly now.

Trying to get guitar hero world tour on ps2 but keeps going to browser, works fine on a friends ps2, what am I doing wrong ?


i had the exact same problem. the original ps2 doesnt have "up to date" hardware in it, so sometimes there are disks that it cant read. what you have to do is take it to the place where you bought it and ask for a different disk. they may give you a hassle, so be prepared to push through with your argument that "the customer is always right"

Digitel camera is not working


Aiptek are a minor brand name at present and do not yet have a worldwide network of service centres.

Presently there are only four company divisions: America (represented solely by the USA and Argentina), Europe (represented solely by Germany) and Asia (represented solely by China) and Pacific (represented solely by Taiwan).

The nearest to you will be the Asian and Pacific offices. I suggest that you contact either Taiwan which is also the company's headquarters ([email protected]) or China ([email protected] or [email protected]) to find out whether they have yet established an Indian service centre, but as their products are not yet officially represented in India you may have to send the product abroad for repairs.

I hope that I have been of some assistance; in return I ask only that you remember to rate my answer.

How good is this bike for long tours?


The bandit 600 would be great for the twists and turns on european roads, but I suspect it might be to uncomfortable for long distances. It's not a touring motorcycle, and it's suspension is a bit stiff to run on long distances.

Do you repair Alps MD 5000 printer


Unfortunately, this website is not a repair shop, but I'll give you what help I can....

Printhead problems are not repairable in the US or Europe any longer. You best bet is to upgrade to an MD-5500, which you can find here: http://www.alps-supplies.com
