Usually when that happens the entire optical unit needs to be replaced. If you are out of warranty you can use a third party camera repair service to do the replacement for you.

Hi My Nikon D5100 camera giving a sin of Autoexposure error. Contact a Nikon authorized representative message after it's drooped from my tripod on the deck floor (Wooden Floor). The Nikon55-300mm


There is no way to really answer this question as the camera was dropped. If it was dropped with the lens, then the problem could be either in the body or the lens (or both). If you have another lens try it and see if you get the same result. Otherwise you are probably going to have to take it to the shop or send it to Nikon

Camera lens cover won't open when you turn the camera on. Says "power off then on" but still stuck


This kind of problem occurs if camera dropped on floor that broke lens mechanism OR lens mechanism got dust particles that make it stuck.
Usually lens mechanism needs to be replaced to solve the issue, however, user level try to solve the problem is to tap camera on your palm a few time gently that may release stuck lens mechanism and it start working again, if that does not help then lens assembly will be replaced.
Thanks.

How can I fix the lens? It's stuck.... :(


There is no way to fix on your own. You would have to send into Casio.

Well I dropped my Canon PowerShot® SD850 IS on the bathroom floor!


You need to take it to a camera shop for servicing, this is not something you're going to be able to solve at home

Lens error !


I had the same problem. I dropped my camera on the floor today while its on. I tried hitting it but it didn't work. So what I did is, I pull the lens or shuttle forward then I close it and turn it back on. It work perfectly fin now. I hope that helps.

Lens wont retract


I did the same thing to my camera (twice) and I just took it back to the place where I got it. Since it was within the 6 month return period- they let me exchange it for no charge.
They told me that when the camera hits something while the lens is out, it knocks the lens out of its groove, which is why you can't get it to retract.
