Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera
I had the same problem with my Ixus40. It can happen i.e. when dust or sand blocks the small gearwheels which are moving the lens.
I disassembled it (be careful with these foil-wires and connectors on the motherboard) and cleaned the gearwheels. There was just a little bit of dust and one grain of sand.
After assembling it back I got a white screen, because I did not connected one wire proberly back...
But after fixing this connection problem the camera is working again!

Not many people will like this but E18 Error message came up after I dropped the camera. After looking for a cheap fix I came across the advice to hit it or drop it! As the camera is about 5 years old and I'm looking for a new one so nothing to loose I dropped it onto a carpet floor and hey presto its working again - and has been OK for several hundred pics since
