E18 and Canon (Ixus 400) repair

    A couple of weeks ago I asked here what's the meaning of "E18" on the
    monitor of a defective Canon. A poster answered that if I'd gone to Google,
    I would have found dozens of links to info. Aside from the fact that this
    could be the reply to many of the questions posted here, I asked the
    question because I thought someone might have had a similar experience and
    would know something specific. Isn't that one of the reasons for a
    newsgroup? As for E18, most of the links on Google were from people asking
    the same question. Probing deeper I got the idea that "E18" appears when
    something's not working. But I knew that already.

    I sent the camera to a Canon-approved repair shop (in Germany), and they
    repaired it for nothing, although the camera is 18 months old. A part was
    replaced--they didn't say which--and said the cause of the defect was wear.
    I dearly love the camera--it isn't my only digi--and thought a positive
    remark about a manufacturer is in order.
