Coolpix 3200. when i turn camera on, the lense


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

I dropped my Nikon Coolpix S600 camera on the floor at a concert and now when I turn it on, it says LENSE ERROR and shuts off right away.. and the lens doesnt come out. It just makes a weird noise! Is it...

there are some fine gears that move the lens in/out ... if it dropped on the extended lens then its likely a gear was broken or knocked out of place .. it is likely repairable but its really tricky working on these things .. there are fine wires and delecate stuff inside.. sometimes a particle will get into the gears and keep them from operating .. if thats the case you can try gently moving the lens around to try to free it .. but unless you can find someone familiar with working on this then i think you need a new camera with a strap ..

Will not recognize memory card

This camera does not take SD cards. Only CompactFlash cards will work.

Black monitor Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital

Give the lense side of the camara a few moderate slaps while moving camara from bright to dark obgects back and forth. the shutter gets stuck and doesn't respond to changing light. that's why outdoor pictures are usually too bright and indoor pictures are black.
good luck.

Nikon Cool Pix 5000 will turn on

your description says will turn on..but it looks like you describe will NOT turn on.. a dead unit.. ok, i have same issue and lucky enough to have TWO of these, the second one with a very different problem. I will troubleshoot between the two and get one working, will post results back here.. preliminary web search suggests unit has a DC to DC onboard voltage converter and DOES incorporate a fuse or more.. hopefully only a fuse is blown.

On the screen I take it. But get a print or view images in computer to check how far this goes. It will need to go back to Nikon for a fix though.

Lense error

try these:-
  • connect it to pc and on it
  • vaccum the barrel of lens
  • changing mem. card and batt. for 2min.
  • shake it.
  • on and off in different positions
  • hit the part near lens softly with palm (trust me this made mine work)

Coolpix 775 camera does not shut off. Probably the shut off button is not operating

This could be a main-board problem The fact the lens operates indicated that mechanism is OK So what to do- Check Nikon support - will it be repaired at reasonable cost or will you simply bin it- who knows
