Question about Nikon COOLPIX S200 Digital Camera
I recently borrowed my sons Coolpix S210 and took many pics while on vacation. I turned it on at one point to take more pics and the screen showed the saved pic at first then the lens whirred and clicked and the screen gave "Lens Error !" I have looked on the web for reasons and found that this may be a common problem with this camera. Do you have any information or do I just need to buy him a new one?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Mine did this. I assume the lens won't pop up as it normally did?
To fix mine, I wedged a small screwdriver into the lens and then turned it on, gently nudging the lens out. It worked great and I haven't had the issue again yet.
Just a little help is all it likely needs to pop that lens out.

Hitting it against the hand while the camera is off works. Be persistent.
Nikon sucks for making me hit my camera on purpose.

Not sure if you still have this issue, but I just encountered it myself and was able to fix it, THANK GOD! I tried all the stuff listed online, to the point of slamming it on my mouse pad, etc. I wanted to take it apart but the screws are too small... finally, figuring it was a lost cause anyway, I put the camera on my desk, lens down (contacting the table, as it was stuck open and jammed at an angle) and applied gradually increasing pressure. Eventually I noticed the smaller portion of the lense extension start to recede a bit into its casing. I tried again with more pressure and something snapped - making a sickening noise, I might add - and the lense closed and shut normally. I tried the power and it worked like a charm, no obvious defects so far.
Good luck, hope this helped.

I have the same problem with the Nikon S210 - and of course the warranty ran out last month. this is clearly a defect and Nikon should stand behind their products. Jeremy White
