Question about Nikon Coolpix 2100 Digital Camera

Nikon coolpix 2100

I'm having an issue with my Nikon Coolpix 2100. The multi layer sections of the zoom lens have extended, but won't retract back into the camera. When I try to use the camera or power it on, the viewfinder displays an error message "Lens Error" and shuts off. Could you please help me with this, I would appreciate it immensely. Thank you in advance, Alex Perry

On my Nikon Coolpix S4000, when power is turned on, the lens extends fully, opens, retracts fully, and then closes automatically. Lens Error then appears. It does not make noises and has not been used...

I had the same problem with a similar Coolpix model. It's an error on the lens mechanism. Maybe you pressed the lens by accident while they were retracting, or something like that... It's really a delicate mechanism. I think you have to send it for a service... Sorry!

The Camera displays lens error only when it's unable to retract or expand. This usually happens when the internal Hardware that controls the lens fails or any dust particle settles around the lens. In this case, just give slight bumps to the Camera against your palm. If the issue persists then service will be required.

Coolpix S50. Sometimes just won't work has a white screen with red exlamation mark and says lens error then a few hours later its fine again. Always seems to happen when I'm out in a club thought maybe it...

It sounds like there may be something blocking the lens from extending (internally. the S50 uses a zoom lens that retracts and extends sideways and a mirror to allow light through).

Lens error

i had the same problem was the lens was pushed forward and the third zoom was pushed back. so the lens is blocking the cover(thing that covers the lens) so push the lens back carefully with a cottom swab and pull the third zoomer thingy out.

Lens Error on NIkon CoolPix L2

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

I had this issue and I read on the net to hold the lens down on a table of some sort and apply slight pressure while pressing the power button, it should go right back in, It did for me!

Lens Error-Nikon L2

It seems as a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
