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.

The lcd screen is broken, I want to get it repaired. Where do I send it, and or what is a cost estimate?


They don't really repair it. They charge you more than $150 and send you a factory-refurbished replacement.

Sliding Lens Door Problem -- Canon S50


I had the same problem with a S50, where the lens door would not operate properly and would not open enough to cause the camera to activate. I took it apart and found that there are two small gears that keep the door on track, one had split in half and jammed the mechanism. They were white plastic, perhaps nylon? I found another S50 on ebay with broken electronics but a working lens door and took parts from it to fix my system. Getting the tiny gear in place was tricky as there are several springs used to activate the camera on switch.

I have a canon Power Shot S50. The mechanical slider that covers the lens is loose. When I open it, it doesn't power up the camera. I suspect there is a switch underneath the cover is broken.


The open door button on a circuit board is usually micro. A loose cover will likely not make contact with this small switch. Take the cover off and tighten the screws on the inside. Try to locate the switch to inspect if it has been wore off, broken, or missing even.

Canon Powershot S50 -lens extends and then retracts


There is a common problem with the A series Powershots, that the lens assembly jams in the telescoping zoom, or in the digital imaging module, in which the lens assembly has to be replaced. I'm not sure if the S series has these issues. You can check with Canon support to find out.

Pentaxs50 turns on lense does not extend memory full displays on Lcd then it turns off.


throw it in the garbage and get a less expensive Samsung digimax s500 for less with better quality and features.. What a mistake in purchasing a Pentax. I wrote to Pentax for I had the same problem. Answer, send it in for repairs with a cost if it is not undaer warranty. Not even a hint as to what may be the problem from them! Pentax, No thanks!
