    Same for me. No light, no sound, no opening of shutter. Fresh batteries don't help. Was working fine before.

    same here. the camera fell on a very soft carpet. So i am assuming nothing should have gone wrong. But it still fails to power on! tried switching the batteries and everything, but in vain. :(

I had someone with the same camera have a problem like yours but it wouldnt turn off and the only way to power the camera on was pressing the power and blue play button. i called nicon and they said try a reset all in the setup menu but this didnt work. i then played for a little longer with it and found if i gentally twisted the body of the camera it would turn on and off as per it should. so i removed the back of the camera ( coution very small screws) and found that the blur control ribbon cable for the top control board had come loose.take something non conductive and not sharp and carfully push the ribbon cable back into is socket. once i had done this everything worked ok.
a few other words of caution while doing this keep track of where the screws come from as they are different lenghts.do not have the batterys in the camera as the flash caps will be charged and if you touch the wrong thing ZAP you could get a nice supprise. and finally when repacing the back of the camera make sure the selector switch for movie , scene and camera is connected right otherwise you will have to remove the back again and fix this issue

i hope this works for you

Does not switch on


Did you put the batteries in?

If you did, are they charged?

If that doesn't help, it's either time for new batteries or a new camera.

"Lens Error" message in Nikon Coolpix L5


There are a few different things it could be though most likely the lens itself is out of alignment. There are methods you can try to "click" it back into place. First off how long have you owned the camera?
Thanks,

Can't download pictures on Windows XP


First do a windows update, see if you have all the current versions of software on your computer. Then install the nikon software on your computer. If that fails, I recommend using a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are quicker and don't use any battery power to download either.

Nikson CoolPix L16 when the camera is turned on it displays "lens error". I can't take a picture and i can't access my pictures on the camera. It also jarrs halfway and holds a black version...


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.
