Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
When I powered it off the lens didn't retrack in, all I heard was a the gears grinding, then I got E18. I read several forum solution to solve this problem by tapping the front of the lens but this didn't work. Also, repeatly turning the camera off and then back on, this also didn't work.
I got the same problem with mine, of course I had a good reason, the falled from 2 m high to the ground ... I phoned the authorized service and they told two probably solutions: 1) substitute the lenses and drive train ($300); 2) re-calibrate the lenses position sensors. If solution 2 works, good, but solution 1 is not feasible.

It just happened to me yesterday, and sounds exactly as the above two posts describe. Grinding noise, getting E18, can view pics, but can't shoot any pics. I've had this camera for only 2 yrs, and used it frequently. I didn't do anything unusual yesterday - just zoomed in on a shot, and it got stuck/broken.

Im having the same problems with mine, I can view my pictures, but the lenses is stuck out, beeps a few times and then I get the E18 error. I tried everything at http://www.e18error.com/repair.html but still no luck, ready to take it apart and see what is stuck
