Re: Canon powershot SD600
Looks like the lens is "out of alignment". Canon charges heftily for this repair. However if the lens is not broken then many people have got it working through systematic bashing. Click here to view the thread

As we can see from your description of your problem. The issue is related to misalignment of the lens. As the lens is stuck it will not come in and out smoothly. And also as you have said the camera lens is broken. Hence, the best place would be go to the authorized Cannon service station. they will changer you a little bit higher than the other(road side) service station. But it will be done by the hands of experts.
Hence please take it to Cannon Service station only. They will fix it up perfectly.
If you have more queries on this. Please do write to us on the same. We will be obliged to solve your issues.
I followed the directions contained in http://www.avh.dds.nl/Fix-Canon-SD600-Lens-Error/ and by disassembling the camera and turning the rotor just a little bit (page 4 of the instructions), it freed up the lens and it is now working perfectly! The camera had been put down on the lens as the lens was retracting and I assume that jammed the retract mechanism. While the camera was open, I blew out whatever dust/dirt was there (didn't see much). The fix took me probably 20-30 minutes, and I am very pleased with myself!
e18 is a lens error message, the lens is stuck or bent, and wouldn't come out, that's why camera shuts off after it tries to do so at the start, not much you can do, but replace the whole lens assembly
