Won't turn on. I press the power on button and the lens won't come out. It's revealing an E18 code on the display.


E18 = ZOOM LENS ERROR
Movement of the lens barrel did not end
within the specified time.

When I turn on my PowerShot A70, it comes on and immediately shuts itself off and the Error E18 appears on the screen.


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.

Please do rate and thanks for using FixYa and Best fo luck to get you camera out of E18!

Error message E18


Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
