Oh boy!!! I did the same thing once in 1964 on a Nikon F lens. I took away one important lesson from that experience; even the simplest looking lens or camera is mechanically complicated with interlocking parts. In my case, the camera repair man told me that the bill would have been $35 (that is about $150 in today's dollars) if I had not tried to fix it myself. It cost almost $100 to have him put everything back together again. At this point, anything you do will only make things worse. I would gather all the parts together and get an estimate from a qualified camera repair man or from the Nikon USA Repair Depot shown on there website. I hate to say it, but on an amateur camera you may find that the cost of repair will exceed the cost of a new camera. Good luck.

I took it apart some time ago and i need a service manual to help me put it back together again.


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Unfortunately, the service manual is currently unavailable for download as the manufacturer provides the copy of the service manual only for the use of authorized service centers.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"


There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

Putting it back together


In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.

By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.
