I don't think that will be possible. The lens is really a touchy place for a camera.

PLEASE DON'T TRY TO FIX THIS BY OPENING IT.
-the camera was made in a DUST-FREE environment, any dust in your camera will compromise its performance. unless you have a dust free room, the blueprints for the camera, and all the part necessary to fix it please don't. 
plus it destroys your warranty.

I would recommend sending it in. the lens is on a motor if it is striped you may not have the part to fix it.

Nikon Coolpix 8700 lens started jerking when going in and out, how to fix it?


Dirt sounds like the problem. Extend, then clean with a moist washcloth with alcohol. If you have a can of compressed air, blow it gently into the joints. Good luck.

Lens error


Not really anything that can be done without taking it apart and fixing. Problem is then getting it back together!

I always suggest to friends that they buy a camera without the extending lens for just this reason.

You can try sending to Nikon or taking it to a repair shop. Most likely will be $100 or so to get it fixed. Or, they will tell you it's not worth fixing.

Blurry pictrues in coolpix s51 after droping it


Send the camera to the camera doctor. Your focusing drive has been knocked out of alignment. Due to the impact damage, there might be more problems than just the focusing.

He is a friend of mine, he can fix your camera cheaper than sending it to Nikon and probably faster too.

Problem with nikon coolpix 8700


Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.
