SOURCE: E18 error on Canon ixus40 - lens stuck

The E18 error is an error message on Canon digital cameras. The E18 error occurs when anything prevents the zoom lens from properly extending or retracting.[1] The error has become notorious in the Canon user community as it can completely disable the camera, requiring expensive repairs.
A quick internet search for "E18" + "canon" quickly reveals hundreds of similar complaints.
ConsumerAffairs.com reports that the "lens has a feature called bellows claw, which is a gear that physically extends and retracts the lens. A piece that holds the lens, the barrier plate, is not large enough and can sometimes cause the bellows claw to malfunction, resulting in a stuck lens". The result is a black screen that only contains the error message, E18. Another problem mentioned on the site blames a sticky iris in the lens, caused by grease entering inside from the microphones built into the lens. The buildup freezes up the ability of the lens to open.

It seems the home position sensor is out of whack or the mylar band behind the print cartridge carriage is missing or broken.
To find the mylar piece look for a clear 6mm x 460mm clear piece of plastic with black markings (like a gradient) on both sides.If you find it you can try and place it back by looking for an extended eyelet on both sides of the stell print carrier.
Most people in haste to change ink have the hand slip and it becomes dislodged.

How to load film


http://www.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/compact_film/Sure_Shot_Z135_manual.pdf
The link above will take you to a .PDF that is an owners manual for the Canon Sure Shot Z135
On page 14 it lists how to load film into the camera.

1. Slide the back cover downwards
2. Insert the film
- Make sure the film is positioned above the film guide
3. Pull the film tip across until it reaches the film tip marker
- Make sure the film is flat
4. Close the back cover
5. Turn the dial to (auto)
(Turn the power on)
the camera will automatically advance the film to the first frame.
6. "1" should be displayed on the frame counter

If this show zero there has been an issue, make sure you are using the proper film for the camera

Camera shows flashing H in rear screen and won't wind on film


Unfortunately on your model the flashing H means there's an electrical fault which needs repair.

In practice, it's an old obsolete model and few spare parts will be available. Any kind of professional repair will cost far more than the camera is worth. But as almost all 35mm compacts are now virtually worthless it means that you can get fantastic models for free or very cheap. All of mine have come for free via FreeCycle, Freegle, and by just asking people I know as most have unused and unwanted cameras lying around. Even the superb and very under-rated Canon Sureshot Classic 120 which has one of the sharpest lenses ever put onto a 35mm compact can be had for zilch as the batteries cost more than the camera is worth (new batteries: about £10).

Sorry this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that it enables you to fix the problem in a different way at almost no cost.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero


Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

How do I change the date? I don't have a manual.


1. With power off, press the MODE button to select the DATE mode.
2. Press the zoom out (three trees) button for more than two seconds to enter the date/time set mode.
3. Press the zoom out (three trees) button to select year, month, day, hour, or minute (selected number will flash).
4. Use the zoom in (one tree) button to advance the number.
5. Repeat steps 3. and 4. to set each value.
6. Press the zoom out (three trees) button until the colon (in the hours:minutes) is flashing. When the colon stops flashing, date and time setting is completed.
7. Press the MODE button and the power will switch off.

My camera wont turn off


I've purchased several of these cameras used as we liked our first on and it eventually failed with this same problem. I have had four of these now and they all end up with this same problem. Take the battery out then turn the selector to any new position and then off, put the battery back it and the lens should recline and camera turn off. One of the cameras would then work for a while after doing this but then hang up again. I think this is a very common problem based on my experience but no other confirmation than yours.
