Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
When I turn on my Cannon Powershot A95 it shows the main screen and the lens comes out, but then the lens goes back it, the camera beeps and then makes a clicking sound. The screen goes black and in the bottom left hand corner its says "E18".
Here is a company that will do the service: https://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/quote/cart.asp?iProbID=6&mo=562
They even have a blog about this very same error.
Part of their repair includes a cleaning which sounds like your camera will benefit from.

"E18" indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover in your camera .This error appears where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting .The error may also be displayed if the lens camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera.Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting. Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred and might require service from canon.Or else try pressing the power button on and held it down while extending the zoom lens. The lens will extend out and the camera will be freed from the error.
Thank you !!
