SOURCE: coolpix lens opens retracts opens then closes again and lens error appears

Hello

When you turn the camera on the lens comes out and has parameters when extending to focus, if the lens does not open fully it sees a problem and then closes.

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase

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.

SOURCE: S220 Coolpix has a lens error problem, turn camera

Did it drop? sounds like the motor is trying to move the lens as you need, but the lens has come out of its tracking. If there is no outside damage and you still have warranty left, you should get it replaced, otherwise it means opening it to place the lens back on its tracking, but this can be tricky.

What you're experiencing is called a lens error. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

I've got a s230 and have got a lens error message - any suggestions?


Does the lens come out all the way as normal when you turn it on or does it stay in, attempt to come out, make funny noises or come out at a strange angle?

If it does any of the latter suggestions then the lens has probably broken either through being dropped or by opening by being powered on whilst in a bag or confined space.

Unfortunately it is very unlikely that it would be fixed by your manufacturer under the warranty but I would take it along to a camera shop and ask someone to take a look at it for you. Sometimes it's a quick fix and other times it may not be repairable. Unfortunately this is the problem with lens errors.

If it cannot be easily fixed, some camera shops can give you a free estimate for repair costs. I recommend getting one of these before contacting your manufacturer as their costs will undoubtedly be higher if they refuse to repair it under your warranty.

I have nikon d80 the lens makes a funny noise and won't focus for a picture


Not sure this will help you: In AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual. Now, does another lens make the same noise of only this lens. Can you try the lens on another camera? What this is attempting to do is eliminate the camera or, the lens, that way you know where to go next.
