    Google has much to say about your possible destiny. It is you sheer luck that you (and your camera) survived that dreadful event on a nice Tuesday afternoon back in 2006.

    And that reminds how you, a week ago, on a nice Sunday afternoon, attempted to turn the camera on it a pocket of your trousers, so that the lens could not freely extend... Eerie, innit? Reminds about the Big Brother ever watching...

    Hello & welcome, Mauro !
    This is message in the boot screen:
    Firmware Ver  GM1.00A
    E18
    Jun 20 2006     13:26:27

    ZoomLensError
    2009.08.09    13:31:51

    It's ok for you?

    And Zoom LensError 2009.08.09 13:31:27 it's a report on an error happened in this date/time??

    The A710 with FW version 1.00a is supported by CHDK -> http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK

    For the E18 error:
    E18 error in the firmware information screen means: there once was a problem with the optic / lens mechanics, maybe some time ago, it's a kind of log for the service. Nothing to worry about if the camera works normal...the line after the EXX shows the date this error occurred the last time...also the same with the ZoomLensError...

    PS: using the search function, e.g. searching for  "E18" (with the 2 quotes " ") gives you a lot of hits...

    *EDIT: @whoever - LOL
