You did not say which lens or lenses you are using, but most auto-focus lenses have a switch for selecting manual or auto-focus. First, check your camera's menu settings to make sure auto-focus is enabled and then your lens to make sure you did not accidently leave it in the manual focus position? If it is in the auto-focus position and still not taking sharp pictures, switch it to manual and see if you can get it to focus correctly. It is also possible that your auto-focus alignment is out because your camera was bumped, jolted or dropped. If realignment is necessary, you can send the camera and lens to Nikon for repair or find a knowledgeable camera repairman.

I was using my Nikon coolpix s205. after taking pictures, it went on standby mode and when i was going to use it again, the monitor was just black and i cannot take pictures anymore. i tried to turn it off...


All I can suggest is 1) Fully charge the camera. and 2) Make sure NO cable is attached to the camera when you turn it on.

Background; Lens motors use lots of power and with a dead battery they do not work very well (stuck) When you have a cable attached to the camera the monitor WILL shut OFF.

WHEN I OPEN MY CAMERA THERE IS A WORD E18.


Hi,

Canon E18 error shows when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend.
  • This error indicate that focusing ring got stuck or jammed due sand, dust, may be due to external shock caused by dropping the device. try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun around lens barrel. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on this will solve the problem.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.
If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move once or twice then it will stuck again.

Else your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center.

Thanks and have a nice day

Jammed digital zoom lens


For whatever reason, the lens has failed. This can be caused by many things: the lens motor has failed or is stuck, the gears involved in driving the lens have jammed, or, as pointed out previously, the lens itself, a series of tubes which fit into one another has become stuck. You can try GENTLY pressing down on the lens when you first power the camera to see if you can free up the stuck lens. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you are going to have to get the camera serviced.
The clicking sound you're hearing is the lens trying to move itself. Unfortunately, it's probably not going to be fixed by pushing on the lens. You are going to have to get the camera serviced. Sorry!

This is either an internal camera fault, in which case you might like to try and get it sorted under warranty if there is any left or its an actual lens error (normally caused by it being bumped) and would be costly to fix. If it has been dropped/bumped it may be covered under your household insurance, worth checking.

Stuck Lens


You will not fix it, the mechanism is not usually fixable If you take it apart ,you will then need the new camera.

I dropped my camera and now the pictures are funny...


What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
