Whats the problem if error 18 appears on the screen?


Hi,

You are getting this error due to lens problem.

As simple it mind sound, but hitting this on the palm a couple of times solved the problem. The lens began to retract but continue with the E18 error. Now on continual basis, 5-6 times, while retracting I kept on the heavy palm tapping, and the problem got resolved. Pls try this elementary method first. Worked for me.

Hope this helps.


Thank you for contacting FixYa

Sony 18-70 kit lens vibrates badly


This is a lens problem, the AF motor of the lens is trying to engage the gears. Sometime it works, sometimes it does not... It happened to my sigma 70-300. The only solution is to have it repaired. If under warranty it should be free, if not.... might be cheaper to buy a new lens.

Lens does not zoom in


This is not a common error on canon digital. This is caused due to possible short in zoom control circuit (main pcb). At normal use, if the lens does not retract due to mechanical jam, when the zoom control button is pressed, lens error 18 message supposed to be displayed. Since control circuit is shorted and faulty, error 18 message was not displayed. The remedy for this problem probably requires a replacement of a main pcb. Replacing a main circuit board may run around $100-140. -James

Lens will not retract


Lens errors (E18 errors on some Canons) 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's 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 error what is this


Most probably this is due to dust accumulated on the lens barrel, which prevents the lens from closing properly. Try cleaning the lens barrel. Check for any dust particles on the lens barrel (the part that retracts) and try again. If you can't get it out yourself, take it to an authosized service center.

Error 18 Lens retraction problem


The lens mech has been damaged (likely by being dropped or bumped). If it is not VISIBLY crooked or twisted, odds are that you have a broken gear or other internal. The only fix is a new lens assembly, which tends to be rather expensive ($80-$200), just for the part.

Error 18


The "E18" error code indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover. This error may appear where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting such as, for example, when pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed if the lens unit/camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera. Solution Check the following when you operate the camera to avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area: - Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting. - Make sure the camera is off before you put it back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.
