E18 error on powershot canon


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

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:

E18 error on Canon ixus40 - lens stuck


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.
A quick internet search for "E18" + "canon" quickly reveals hundreds of similar complaints.
ConsumerAffairs.com reports that the "lens has a feature called bellows claw, which is a gear that physically extends and retracts the lens. A piece that holds the lens, the barrier plate, is not large enough and can sometimes cause the bellows claw to malfunction, resulting in a stuck lens". The result is a black screen that only contains the error message, E18. Another problem mentioned on the site blames a sticky iris in the lens, caused by grease entering inside from the microphones built into the lens. The buildup freezes up the ability of the lens to open.

E 18 problem


Hi,
The dreaded E18 error happens to many Canon cameras.
This error occurs when the lens is mechanically stuck. Sometimes you need it to be serviced and most times you can fix it, but even then it's a good idea to have it serviced soon. The cause to this may be dust, dropping and other mechanical problems.
1. Check if the battery is full
2. Check for visible mechanical problems (obstacles, debris). You may notice the lens is not exactly straight - in this case this is the cause of the problem.
3. Turn the camera off.
4. This needs to be done with gentle force: Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take each part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do this with both sections of the lens. You will hear a little "click" as it pops back in place.
5. Power the camera on.

Hope this helps!
