Lens errors (on older Canons this is known as an E18 error) 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:

E18 is an error code from self diagnostic system of the camera.if there is a malfunction in the lense assembly or the focus assembly then this error code appears. You have t show it at a repair shop.

E18 on my powershot A60


Congratulations on your new baby! Your Canon camera is displaying E18 because the lens is not operating correctly. In most cases, it is not cost effective to repair the camera, the lens is very expensive. I think Canon charges close to $200 to repair this problem. I don't know of any problem Canon is having with these models and the lens, the lens is often damaged from impact or compression. It's a great digital camera, I would call the Canon facility in New Jersey to see what a flat rate repair would be. Good Luck and congratulations!!! Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Problem with E18


The "E18" error code indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover. Or it may appear if you apply pressure to the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. Remove and reinsert the batteries to see if the error code will reset. Generally speaking, there is nothing you can do to correct the problem other than to send the camera to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the error. Following the repair cost you should decide, whether it worth it
