It sounds like the lens hasn't retracted sufficiently and it's catching on the sliding door. Make sure you remove the batteries before trying this and don't go poking your fingers near any circuitry. The flash, if charged can give you one hell of a zapp It's a very simple matter to remove the front of the camera and slide the door open and replace in that position. Just be careful of the two fine wires running from the door to the camera. These are connected to the microswitch which turns the camera on when the door is opened. The whole procedure should take no more than 30 minutes just don't lose the screws. When you have everything back together reinsert the batterias and the lens should extend. Then try closing the door and then opening it again giving the lens time to retract and the camera to shut down. If the lens doesn't move you've got bigger problems.

How can I open the battery door, it is stuck?


Like the manual shows you have to slide the cover and than it will come up.
But if you managed to put the batteries in the wrong way around, or even worse if you let them in for a very long time the door can be blocked by some pressure.
Please press the battery cover down, before you try to open it.
Perhaps you should knock or tap with a finger. Not to much force, but a few taps on the cover. Than again press is down, while sliding outwards. As soon as it moves, careful slide it further till it opens.

Lens won't retract and camera won't start even with new batteries


There will be some bit of paper or dust blocking the movement of sensor .

You need to blow air to remove the dust .

I get a "system error" when I turn on the camera. battery seems to be charged. thank you...


Hi,


This error usually comes due to faulty sliding mechanism.Put a bit of force on the focusing lens to push it back into camera casing. That's the reason the sliding mechanism won't work. The lens is stuck and if you force it back in, the sliding mechanism will work again. Not responsible if your camera screws up, so try at your own risk.Or else try out this method.Pull the lens fully out and then it will work.It will be bit tricky to get the lens out. Use your nail to "grab" between the outer glass and the little plastic cover.

Thank you !!

System error appears over my pics when in viewing mode and camera shuts


Turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the batteries, or unplug and reconnect the AC adapter.
Also, what is the capacity of the memory card you are using? If its 4gb, you will have an issue with the system error.
How long have you had this camera by the way?

Hope this will work for others too.

My nikon 55-200 zoom lens is stuck at full zoom


Don't force it.
Did you get dust or dirt in it?
The only solution is to bring it in for service or send it to Nikon if it is a USA model.
Nikon USA will NOT repair any gray market items.

Stuck battery/ScanDisk card


Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,
