My canon SD 450 camera broke! Answered

When i turn it on the screen flashes E18. i looked up E18 and say's that this is caused but to much dust in the mechanical parts. Ive tried using compressed air to blow out dust from it but that didn't work. HELP!

Have you taken it apart, and what sort of compressed-air? I'd have a guess that something isn't moving or there's too much load on a motor / servo and that's what the camera is reporting as "stuck/sticky". If it's under warranty use that. If it might be covered by contents insurance have a look into that? L

i took the cover off and used Air that comes in a bottle to blow out dust in a computer. There's no warranty because i bought it on ebay, about a year ago. But thanks!

Mmm - might not be dust as such could just be something stuck, fiddling with it may be your only option unless it's worth having it looked at by a professional? The "air" in a bottle isn't air - be careful how it's used as it can cause chilling. L

Ok, yesterday i took the main circuit bored out now i just have to take it apart a little further. Thanks!
