If the E18 error code comes along with unusual noises while moving the lens, there may be a problem with the mechanics. Just tap the camera on a solid surface a few times. I had the same problem and tapping helped just fine.

No image on the viewer; no image being recorded.

If your Canon A80 camera shows previously stored images of memory card in playback mode but does not show live view in camera mode to take fresh picture then ccd imager chip got defective and need to be replaced.
Local camera repair shop will help you to replace ccd imager chip because camera will take apart in detail and soldering work is needed.

Cannon PowerShot A80. Pictures come out with red tint and what appears to be horizontal lines across complete image. However, record video without problem.

If camera shows previously taken pictures in playback mode and does notshow live view to take fresh pictures then it is ccd imager chipfailure. CCD imager will be replaced in your Canon A80 camera.

Pictures names

First - be sure to copy all your pictures from the camera's memory card to your computer.

Second - using the camera's menus, reformat your memory card.

It's adding the _2 suffix to the filename because it thinks there's already a picture on the memory card with that name.
