You will need to take it to a repair shop, it sounds like it needs a zoom drive gear replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
I'm sure that every1 looking at this right now would love to
be able to do a quick fix for the dreaded E18 error. Well, I have fixed mine
several time in less time that it takes to take a picture. So here it is: This
error occurs when the lens is "stuck" or not extending "straight". The error can
happen in 3 ways: either when the lens wont "come out", or "comes out" and then
retracts, or does not retract at all. Mine did all of these at one stage or
1) If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, but then retracts again, do as follow:
Turn the camera off. Place the camera on it's back with the lens facing up and have a look at the "spacing" between the lens and the lens housing. You'll probably notice that the gap is NOT EVEN all the way around. To fix this, simply -VERY GENTLY- press down on the side where the gap is the biggest. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Try powering it back on.
2) If the lens is extended all the time and won't retract at all, do as follow:
Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently, in turn, take the two part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will once again hear a little "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
This has worked for me many times and it seems to happen when the camera has been carried around and possible had a little knock. I hope this is of help to someone else.
