It means you have a big problem. The lens sticks when it comes out and you get an error E18 and black screen. Looks like Canon is not very good at customer service either. Read more here:

Canon PowerShot A510 error code E18. What does it mean?

Canon E18 error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend. The problem usually happens because dirt or sand get into the lens mechanism. If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is to take it to the nearest official Canon repair shop and Canon should fix it for free.

What does E18 mean?

Canon E18 error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off. This is caused by dirt in between the telescoping portions of the lens. You can clean this with compressed air, generally. Blow air all around the turret sections of the lens. you can also GENTLY push the lens inward ( have the lens extended and take the battery out... then push inward...)

Nikon 600 suddenly comes up as Error, press shutter release button. NOTHING ELSE HAPPENS - The cammera plays back slide shows etc. It is a Nikon DXSWMVR lens

Since this is a recent camera, you may want to consider sending it to Nikon, because it may still be under a warranty.

What kind of error? E18? System error? Or a number error? These errors will tell you what the general problem is. Even though you may know the error, that will not tell the whole problem.

For instance, a lens error of E18, simply tells you there is a problem with the lens. That can mean a lot of things in that area.

Check Canon customer support. If you have the CD, there is a comprehensive manual in PDF format on there.
