Hi
\015\012E18 means you have a mechanical failure it's depend from the zoomunit. If you can fix it by yourself you can clean the small gearbox that is driven the zoom assy sometimes ther is sand or contamination partikels in it.
\015\012Otherwise you must replace the zoomunit it's not so expencive.
