Using "e18 error message", do a search in the Canon forum here and on the various search engines such as Google. You'll turn up numerous examples of the problem. It happened with various Canon models. As far as I know, Canon has never admitted the problem. I'm unaware if it's been corrected in the newer models.

It means the lens is stuck - it won't retract, usually because something gets in between the moving segments of the lens barrel and jams it. I'm not aware of any recalls by Canon, so if this happens after your warranty runs out, you have an expensive paperweight.
