    i have the same problem with my camera. Has anyone sent theirs back to nikon and what did they do?

  • cherylchisho Apr 21, 2009

    I just purchased the Nikon Coolpix s210 in Dec 2008. I use it every day for work. It's been great until now. The lens opens, makes a buzzing noise, and closes. I then get the "lens error" message on the lcd screen. I called a couple camera repair shops who told me it would not be worth the money to repair. I hope there is a solution as this is the best camera for it's small size and price.

Sometimes removing the batteries for a day may correct the problem temporarily. But the real problem is really in the lens mechanism. "Lens error"can only be repaired by Nikon or an authorized repairman. I sent mine back in Dec. 2007. It was repaired free of free of charge under the warranty. It was fixed and returned very fast.
The same problem just reoccurred and I sent it back to Nikon this very morning. They told me this is not a problem with this model, but I beg to differ. My internet search revealed that this apparently is a problem with many Nikon lens mechanisms.

You must send camera in to be repaired.

If you don't have a warranty it will cost $100.

Coolpix l3 lens error


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

See my posts on this problem. By forcing the lens with you fingers into the camera, it may put it on track. This can damage the camera even further, but may be worth a try. You can try to pull it out when starting, and then pushing in on turning it off.
Worth a try, may work.
