Question about Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera
The camera fell on a ledge at the airport, crashing to the ground. The lens was stuck in the out position and the camera said lens error. I was able to get the lens back in, but the little cover never closed and now it gives a system error and the lens won't extend out. It just says system error.
The following blog outlines some other repair options for a lens error:

I have successfully fixed the same error on a Nikon 2100 by dissasembling the camera and removing grit from the gears that drive the lens. However, if the camera has been dropped, I suspect that something has got dented or bent. It may be worth taking the camera apart to see if a gear has got dislodged.
I would warn you to be very careful not to get a shock off the flash capacitor inside the camera though. Also, it took me quite a while to put it all back together. It's not the easiest device to work on, a result of the very compact body (for its time!)
