    A black line has appeared about half way down the viewing screen and it goes half way across screen. The line is thin black but has other tin lines above and below it about a quarter of the way along it. This line has just appeared today.

When my S2 IS is turned on, the lens moves out, a beeping sound occurs, but the viewfinder remains black except for the message E 18. The lens does not move back in when the off button is pressed.


The Error E18 is quite a havoc on these Canon cameras. Here is a blog with great info on it: E18 Blog
Do not force your lens back into place and don't try and jiggle it either, you will be further damaging other pieces.
This camera is very powerful and the repair is well worth it. Teleplan Camera Repair provides a quote online with the cost clearly displayed.

Camera won't function - "E18" (Canon PowerShot S230)


Try lightly tapping lens on a hard surface. This sometimes reseats the lens. If this does not work take to bits and reassemble.

Canon powershot s410 problem


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.

E 18 problem


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's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're still worth a try. Good luck! :

Canon PowerShot SD200 E18 Error


The "E18" error code indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover. The grinding noise you hear-to my regret- means that len's mechanism is malfunction. This type of problem could be fixed by professional only.

Canon S70 does not work


Canon Technical Support is the next place to go. This is a firmware error- maybe not a correctable problem except by replacement

This comes up when the lens sticks. Try removing the colar around the lens, then turn the camera on/off and give it a "little help" to open or close, it's probably just a little stuck
