    dark screen then E 18 error code when camera repeatedly turned on. after many attempts, lens extends then able to take pictures. from what I have read, this appears to be a flaw with this camera. Can Canon fix this problem permanently and WILL canon stand behind thier product lines or are S2 users left out to dry? I really do want an answer.

The lens on my Canon Powershot S2 IS Camera is stuck in the extended position. Code on screen E18


This is a very common in digital camera's caused by debris getting into the lens housing, get a can of compressed air attach the straw and give it one or two blasts between the crevice "camera body and lens housing" try the power! if that fails, try tapping on the lens housing with the side of your finger "gently" if successful aim the lens down towards the floor and extend and retract the lens a few times to further clean out any additional grit.

You might have a mecanical problem at the lens. The only way to surely fix this is at a local electronist or Canon dealer. Trying to repair it yourself can render the camera unusable and unrepairable.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera showing code E18


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

I have a PowerShot S2 IS Icannot take a picture screen show E18.


E18 is the standard Canon lens error. The lens gets stuck when extending. If you did not drop it and there are no signs of damage you can check with Canon and try to get the camera repaired under warranty.

If it is not covered here are a few methods to try on your own, at your own risk.

My lens of my canon powershot s21s camera would not contract and I cannot take pictures. When I try to use it I get a code saying E18 and a beeping sound.


I have had several digital cameras that when the lens is extended and the camera is dropped or the lens is bumped, the lens itself will become "off track" and will not retract or work without have the whole camera taken apart

Lens does not retract or show an image. D18 is shown on viewfider. everything ese works


Lens errors (believe "E18" is showing on your viewfinder) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

E 18 problem


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.

Best Regards
