I typed this into Google and it seems to be an error message on Canon cameras. Is yours a Canon - if so I suggest you type it into Google too - they offer some suggestions to fix it.

E18


Hi,

Canon E18 error happens when the lens gets 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.
The problem usually happens because dirt or sand get into the lens mechanism. To repair it, visit this link and follow all the steps.Rating the solution is highly appreciated..

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.

What does E18 mean?


Canon E18 error happens when the lens gets 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. This is caused by dirt in between the telescoping portions of the lens. You can clean this with compressed air, generally. Blow air all around the turret sections of the lens. you can also GENTLY push the lens inward ( have the lens extended and take the battery out... then push inward...)

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.

Whirring sound after start then black screen with E18 in bottom corner


this is very easy to fix- switch your camera on, grab then lens around the edges, and carefully give it a firm twist. It should click and turn on.
