E18 error I just had my camera serviced for a bad CCD imager. When I turned it on the first time, after coming back from factory repair, I get an E18 error. Looks like the lense won't come out??? What do I do to use my camera in good working order again?

Greetings sandrak2,

As frustrating as it might be, I would suggest directly returning to whatever repair shop you had it serviced by and demanding they redo the fix. It is not acceptable for a unit to be sent in for service and return not properly repaired. I would suggest doing this as soon as possible.

I hope this helps!

The screen won't come on for viewing and the lens won't retrack, it also started popping up with E18


That is shutter error code. I am sorry to tell you have to buy a new camera, it would be to expensive to replace.

E18 error on canon digital camera s200 powershot dropped it and now the lens is stuck halfway out/in The lens will not open, it was not dropped. I get e18 error.


Canon Powershot's error E18 has to do with the lens:
If it appears on a black LCD with E18 written on the corner, it is mostly due to the lens getting stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off.
I am giving below a link which will help you with E18 problem.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have a proble.

You can Try the following also;
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fully charged batteries back in and turn the camera on. if it doesnot work then,

2: Remove the batteries again, as also remove the memory card. Then install the newly charged batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life.
3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during start up. This extra power can be useful to overcome any grit or sand particles that may be jamming the lens.
4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Try the above and let me if its any help.

E18


The following blog outlines some repair options for an E18 lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

It's important that you fix the E18 error first, as the blur of colors may be symproms of a failing CCD. If so, Canon would fix this for you for free IF the camera has no other problems (ie no E18 lens error). Please see the following info:

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!

Blank screen on Powershot S40 - I don't think it's E18


This is a problem with the CCD card. Canon has issued a recall and will fix/repair for free. Go to the Canon website and search for CCD to get more info (or call them direct).

Problem with E18


The "E18" error code indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover. Or it may appear if you apply pressure to the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. Remove and reinsert the batteries to see if the error code will reset. Generally speaking, there is nothing you can do to correct the problem other than to send the camera to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the error. Following the repair cost you should decide, whether it worth it

E18


The "E18" error code indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover and it's make sense that the reason for it is sand. Try to clean lens area using air pressure. In case it will not help, you should send the camera to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the error. Following the repair cost you should decide, whether it worth it
