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 worth a try:

Canon PowerShot A510 error code E18. What does it mean?


Canon E18 error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend. The problem usually happens because dirt or sand get into the lens mechanism. If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is to take it to the nearest official Canon repair shop and Canon should fix it for free.

Power shot SD20 digital camera When the on switch is depressed a short musical tone plays and then it stops after about 5 seconds and E18 appears on the screen momentarily before the camera turns off.


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.

My Canon Power Shot S2 1S will not take pictures because the lens will not go back in or out. The screen is black unless I review recent pictures


Do you get an E18 error? If so, then the lens motor is bad, or you have contamination in the gears (sand, dirt, etc), or mechanical failure from dropping the camera. This will require repair by Canon or other camera repair services.
