What does the error code "e18" mean on a cannon power shot a10 ?


"E18" seems to be a code related to and barrel extension problems. Its showing because of lens error or you can say stuck lens. Ok now the question is how its stuck? its happens when the lens not ready for work. Some how its not able to
stable his focus method. That's why its stuck. There is a chances of lens guide pin disturbed or damaged & thats why continues failure. Its mean he inform you there is a system error. So please visit the service center for repair that. Its a very common & repairable problem. Thanks.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera showing code E18


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.

I have a PowerShot S2 IS Icannot take a picture screen show E18.


E18 is the standard Canon lens error. The lens gets stuck when extending. If you did not drop it and there are no signs of damage you can check with Canon and try to get the camera repaired under warranty.

If it is not covered here are a few methods to try on your own, at your own risk.

Lens open can not shut down E18


Sometimes it just gets stuck - With the camera on go to the view mode and give it a little jiggle with your thumb and finger. Also - a can of compressed air can loosen up what ever might be stuck in there.

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.
