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 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.

The E18 error is an error message on Canon digital cameras. The E18 error occurs when anything prevents the zoom lens from properly extending or retracting.[1] The error has become notorious in the Canon user community as it can completely disable the camera, requiring expensive repairs.

Hi i had an e18 error appear and the lens was stuck. the lens is now going in and out but the focus is compleatley shot every thing is blured any ideas?? thanks


Hi,

"E18" indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover in your camera .This error appears where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting .The error may also be displayed if the lens camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera.Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting. Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred and might require service from canon. Or else try pressing the power button on and held it down while extending the zoom lens. The lens will extend out and the camera will be freed from the error.

Thank you !!

My lens for my canon powershot SD550 is stuck open.when switching the camera power on E18 appears on the screen in the bottom left corner.


The E18 error is 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.

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 40% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try.

Have a powershot sd550


After many complaints Canon posted this on their web site: "The E18 error code may be displayed if you apply pressure to the zoom lens, lens barrier or surrounding area when handling the camera. Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the zoom lens."
There is a lot you can try...

E18 is a lens error. My guess would be sand got into your lens (into the gears, etc.). These guys should be able to take care of you. http://www.darntoothysam.com/servlet/the-1730/Canon-Powershot-SD550-Camera/Detail
