Re: System / Lens Error
It has defective mechanism, you have to bring the unit to the service center. But first Try to change the memory card or remove it and try shooting. I have encountered different troubles caused only by defective or corrupted memory cards

My camera started bringing up
"system error (zoom)" and it was completely inoperable. I would turn it off, but the lens wouldn't retract unless I applied slight pressure to it. I was able to FIX this problem by applying some lubricant
oil to a Q-tip and swiping it around the telescoping parts of the lens,
being very careful to stay away from the actual lens. I turned the
camera on and off a few times so the oil could work its way into the
parts, and it fixed the problem. I don't know if it will be a long term
solution, but I can at least download my pictures to my computer now!
the E18 means the lens system has a problem. I had it with my S2 and sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Eventually it stopped working. The only solution was sending it to repair, they changed the lens system.
I have successfully fixed the same error on a Nikon 2100 by dissasembling the camera and removing grit from the gears that drive the lens. However, if the camera has been dropped, I suspect that something has got dented or bent. It may be worth taking the camera apart to see if a gear has got dislodged.
I would warn you to be very careful not to get a shock off the flash capacitor inside the camera though. Also, it took me quite a while to put it all back together. It's not the easiest device to work on, a result of the very compact body (for its time!)
