Lens errors (E18 errors on 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:

'"The lens of my cannon


This is basically the infamous Canon "E18" error, which has been around for quite a while.
I would type out my own suggestions but since it's such a common error I'll just direct you to a nice long list of solutions already compiled elsewhere: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

E18 in the lower left corner of the screen and the view finder doesn't work


Canon E18 error happens with lens issues. Usually happens when lens gets jammed
or dirt or sand finds its way into the lens. Sometimes it happens for no reason.
You can try to gently tap your camera on the side and see if that helps, but if it does
it will probably reoccur again at some point. Most likely you will need a lens replacement.

The screen won't come on for viewing and the lens won't retrack, it also started popping up with E18


That is shutter error code. I am sorry to tell you have to buy a new camera, it would be to expensive to replace.

Cannon EOS Rebel XS shows busy display stopped working


Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else.
This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj

My lens wont fully extend


My sister's camera was having the same trouble and after trying a few different things, i came across a solution that fixed her camera. Her error said "lense error, restart camera."

I held down the shutter button for a few seconds, then i held down the power button as well. I tried it once or twice and then it worked. I hope this helps!
