Hi all, I got E18 error on my Powershot A85. The lens got stuck and was not moving even after replacing the batteries. Customer Service gave an estimate of $90 to repair the camera.
I just thought would be a good Idea to open it at home and After opening the bottom and back screw, the helicoil which was locked, just got released.and the camera is back to normal. Do not disassemble the whole camera, just move the case below the lens slightly.
This is just for your information, may not hold true for all E18 errors, but did work for me. Good Luck!!!
