The lens needs a professional camera repair service.

The probability is high that the ultrasonc lens motor or th lens internal gears are damaged, and needs replacement.

Best regards,

My lens won't go in and when I try to take a picture it clicks and the code E18 comes up.


lens error comes when your lens is not able to retract insde.
This can be due to some kind of dirt or any sand particles stuck inside the lens. this may also occur when the camera is dropped from a height which damages the lens system.
Please give a small tap to the camera lens. It works in many cases. If not you will have to consult a authorized service center

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Lense is extended but will not retract combined with a clicking noise....error code E18


Lens errors 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:

My Canon Power Shot S2 1S will not take pictures because the lens will not go back in or out. The screen is black unless I review recent pictures


Do you get an E18 error? If so, then the lens motor is bad, or you have contamination in the gears (sand, dirt, etc), or mechanical failure from dropping the camera. This will require repair by Canon or other camera repair services.

I dropped my camera


If you still need this camera repaired, I can perform the fix. Does it still operate normally otherwise?

My lens won't come out.


It sound like the lens mechanism was damaged during camera's drop. Only way (to my regret)is to sent it to be repaired in a professional lab.
