Error 18


Something is bent or jammed service will probably cost nearly as much as a replacement camera. Sorry. You can try to cycle the zoom button on the camera a few times before you again try to power off and retract the lens but I am not optimistic of any solution short of repair or replacement.

Partly open lens


the mechanical part that is trying to open the lens cover is having a problem

Possibly

1. a lodged piece of foreign material

2. A broken piece within the camera is interfering

3. A piece in the camera that helps control the lens or another piece by the lens is out of place

Please check this out if you are comfortable doing so and let me know what comes of it

Thank you

I have a power shot S2IS, after turning on I am unable to see the figure that I am trying to photograph both through view finder and the pop out screen. I am trying to find answers to why this may be...


I've run into this problem with this model of Canon camera before. It's called the "Black Screen of Death" and there is no way short of expensive repair to fix the camera. Some people claim it's the CCD sensor others say it the optical unit. With all this said and there has been a lot of these cameras die after just 500 pictures, make sure you have removed the lens cap.

Cannon powershot s2is camera, lense stuck open. I get beeps when I turn it on. Shows error code 18. Shuts off.


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 are 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.

No Image to Shoot


There is a temporary fix that works sometimes but eventually it will stop working alltogether. If canon can't help, might try this:

E 18 problem


This error is caused by a faulty lens motor, contaminated transmission, or mechanical damage from dropping. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix for this and it requires service from Canon or other repair facility.
