Bump the camera hard against the palm of your hand, or something harder if you dare. The lens is likely stuck. My Panasonic did the same thing. Knocked it a few times on the side of the counter and the lens popped out. Wiped it clean and it's worked fine ever since.

When I turn it on, I get a "LENS ERROR" MESSAGE


When one gets a lens error it usually means there is a physical lockup of the gears inside. It may need to be repaired by Nikon.com, if repair is economical to the owner of the camera.

Turn on, displays : Lens error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

I think I answered this one earlier. Is the lens stuck? If so, help it out with a little screw driver. Worked for me!

Lens error


This may be related/helpful: My S3 in normal home use (no sand, wet or shock) just now displayed the ?Lens cover error? message, with cover only half open. Using a tooth pick I ?eased? it gently and it popped open, took a few trial pictures- fine, but would not fully close unless eased. Now will open and close slowly on own but error message blocks camera use. Then spotted cause - a loose thin sliver of silver trim from below flash around (there?s a gummy substance where it should be). When I first saw one end of this it was between the lens cover and the camera body as tho part of the mechanism, so I did not touch it. Now I know it?s jamming the lens cover operation is it OK to open the camera case to get it out? Questions: (a) Has anyone done this please? (b) Will this clear error message? Thanks.
