You can just head to darntoothysam.com and search for "E:18" without the quotes. You won't see your model listed, but you can buy any one of those model repairs and follow the steps to get your A510 fixed.

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.

My canon camers is suffering from the E18 error


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 will not come out


E18 Error Fixed Canon PowerShot A520 My lense would not come out and would give me the E18 error and shut down.

I just pressed the power button on and held it down while extending the telescopic zoom lense. It made a horrible sound but the next thing I knew the lense extended out and the camera worked again!

Canon digital camera power shot A510


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:

The a70 drops a screw in to the mechanism.

you will need to take the unit apart carefully as it is intricate.

Canon a510 lense problem


It depends on the age of the camera If it is new[ish] contact Canon Technical support team who may offer to inspect/repair for free. If it is older than this , just live with or contemplate the next camera. You taking it apart will probably not be a successful enterprise- and repair shops costs will end up well on the way to the price of a new improved high mega pixel camera.
