Hello, I got a Canon S2 IS Powershot Digital camera last year and was happy with it up until a week ago. The lens got stuck while trying to extend with a matching beeping sound and the LCD displayed E18. It happened again today. Any idea what's the cause of this problem? How can we avoid this?

Hi Ave!

E18 is an error that involves the lens or its lens cover. It may happen if you apply pressure to its lens while handling the camera.

Following are the tips you can do to avoid E18 error:

-When you operate the camera, try to avoid applying pressure to the lens and its surrounding area.

-When your holding the camera, fingers should not touch the lens unit when you are shooting.

-Make sure your camera is off before you put it back in the case.

If E18 is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occured.

I hope it helps.

I have checked Canon’s official web site if the camera’s model accepts any firmware upgrade but the bad thing is that this kind of digital camera doesn’t require any firmware upgrade.

Although the camera supports installing its computer application on operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux but I think its only purpose is to make the transferring of the images taken from the digital camera to the computer possible. Other than that, there’s none.

If you are experiencing this type of problem with your digital camera, I think it would be best if you will return it to the store where you bought it to let them check the camera’s defect.

The problem with your camera is more on the technical side and this mean that experienced personnel should be the one to examine the device and shouldn’t be done by their owners alone to prevent further damage.
