You would need to put in fresh batteries. As soon as you turn it on press the play button on the back. This should reset the lens.

There are a few things you can try. Here is an excellent blog about lens errors and stuck lenses, and it covers what can be tried to free it up:

They say about 50% of lens problems can be fixed trying their suggestions. Hope you're one of the lucky ones! Also, if nothing works, get an estimate before having it repaired. Often, it's just better to get another camera.

Camera wont turn on zoom lens is stuck out camera power light comes on flashes for a few second the screen shows a E18 then it shuts itself down


The lens motor or drive has failed. Thats why you are getting the error and the lens won't retact.

This is covered under warrenty if you have any. If not it can cost more than a new camera to get fixed. If you conact canon support or conact your local repair depot they should be able to tell you the cost. Sometimes they will have a flat fixit fee that will cover repair or replacement. Thats cheaper than a new camera but not that much.

Lens making strange clicking noise when turned on or zoomed in.


If the noise wasn't there for 3 days and is there now, it can only get worse. I would return it for a replacement.

Zoom lens jammed


Sorry, but there's no safe or easy DIY fix for the lens problem, and any homebrew repair attempt will likely make the problem worse. I suggest that you take it to a local camera shop (NOT the camera department at a chain store) or contact the support folks via the Canon web site to arrange repairs. Be sure to get a firm price before you commit, though. The cost of the fix can approach the price of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.

Cannon PowerShot S2 IS lens is stuck


I have the exact same problem, took it completely apart removed the zoom motor, physically turned the zoom gear and retracted the lens, reinstalled the motor, put it all back together, and found that I had the same problem and the lens wouldn't move out, so im pretty certain that the motor is bad, as the lens moves smoothly once the motor is not attached to it... looking for a replacement motor as i type...

If purchased less than 30 days ago, take it back to the store for a replacement. If the store can't help you, Canon should then help you under your warranty. If Canon won't help, try these as a last resort:

Camera will not power up correctly


Again the same old compact camera zoom lens problems - sand in lens, stuck AF motor, chewed up plastic gears...you only have to look at them wrong and they will die... (A very cynical camera repairer that has tried to repair these damn things soo often!!) Even cameras with internal lenses like the old Nikon 950/990/4500 still have troubles with stuck motors and broken lens parts. I despair - these things are just made to last the guarantee out (if that long) and die horribly afterwards!!

Canon Powershot A70 zoom button stuck


You'll need to send this away for repair. Sounds like sand or something in the lens assembly. You can take it to a local camera store and get a repair quote for about $20. They'll send it to an authorized repair depot and hear back how much a cleaning will cost if this is the problem.
