I had this issue and I read on the net to hold the lens down on a table of some sort and apply slight pressure while pressing the power button, it should go right back in, It did for me!

SOURCE: lens error message on nikon

Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras, and it can be caused by dirt, dust, grit, or dropping, among other things.

There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Lens is probably just stuck, because of debris or misaligned gears. The lens can in about 50% of times be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repair. There are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the part is usually available on ebay.

On my Nikon Coolpix S4000, when power is turned on, the lens extends fully, opens, retracts fully, and then closes automatically. Lens Error then appears. It does not make noises and has not been used...


I had the same problem with a similar Coolpix model. It's an error on the lens mechanism. Maybe you pressed the lens by accident while they were retracting, or something like that... It's really a delicate mechanism. I think you have to send it for a service... Sorry!

Your camera is still under the one year Nikon warranty. Call Nikon's repair depot at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. They will verify your warranty and assist you in returning it for repair.

When I go to turn on my Nikon it makes beeping noises and says Lens Error. What do I do to fix this problem?


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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

IT FAIL AND IT IS MAKING CLICKING NOISE WHEN I TURN IT ON. IT GIVES ME A MESSAGE "LENS ERROR "


Usually that means that you have a bit of grit in the lens mechanism and the camera recognizes that it is taking too much force to open or close. The clicking noise is the camera trying to extend the lens for use. If repeatedly switching the camera on and off fails, you are at a crossroads. You can send it to a repair facility to have the grit removed (assuming the unit hasn't be come damaged in the process). Or, you can take a substantial risk and try to "help" the lens open or close by wiggling or pushing lightly on the lens mechanism to try to loosen the grit. The risk is that you'll break the mechanism for good. I have taken this risk and won, but it's a chance you'll have to decide to take on your own!

Clicking noise when it turns on and won't focus, lens error also


What you are describing is probably the beginning of a possible lens error. If the camera still operates correctly (the lens extends correctly, you can still take photos that are correctly focused) then there may be sand or dirt in the lens mechanism that will eventually cause a failure. Just as an initial step, get a can of compressed air and blow out the space between the lens barrel and the camera body. If the clicking noises continue and the lens movement is not smooth, it is time to contact Nikon support at the link below

My nikon 17 to 200 vr lens is suddenly making a little grinding noise when i turn camera on..


Send it in for service. If it was purchased in the USA and you sent in the Nikon extended service contract that comes free in every Nikon USA lens then you have a 5 year warranty that covers most parts and defects. The warranty does not cover abuse, dropping sand damage etc.
