E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

E18 I used my Camera on the beach this weekend. Now the lens will not move and it reads E18 on the screen. I am thinking sand might have started this problem. Thank you for your time Straw


The E18 error is 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. ... Canon PowerShot S300 / IXUS 300 Digital Camera

Black Screen The camera was never dropped. And, it worked perfectly just 1/2 hour before the problem occurred. Turn it on, Canon logo shows up, then black screen with 2 beeping noises, the screen says E18 and the camera shuts off by itself. Please let me know what the problem is. I am very frustrated about this!!! Many thanks.

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down.

When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it. I put the fully charged batt
