You can try? but you will be on your own - there are no manuals or diagrams. Depending on the age of the device and how it came to lose its 'eye',Ii may be prudent to check out Nikon customer support. Though if you find they are asking for money - it will be a better bet to get that new camera you hanker after.

How can i fix a lens error on s610?

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:

Nikon Coolpix S550 Lens Error.. Need fix without spending

No, even if you could find a lens for free this is not an easy camera to replace the lens on. Even a qualified tech would take up to an hour to replace. Understand that today's cameras low cost makes replacing the camera a better option than repairing a camera who's value used is less than the repair cost.

I turn my camera on and without coming out all the way the lens goes back in. Then "lens error" pops up on the screen.

It is a pretty major problem for the Coolpix it seems. The internal coupling of the zoom lens is somewhat fragile, and a slight tap at the wrong time can mess up the system. It could have been something as small as a bump while it was being carried in your pocket. The problem is that you'll have to pay for repairs on it since technically it's not a camera error but something that Nikon says happened during usage.

Some owners seem to have been able to solve the problem with a gentle bump to the side of the camera, or some gentle twisting on the lens itself. I don't necessarily recommend that- or, at least I would call Nikon first and see what they have to say about cost of repairs. Other people say that once you do get it fixed, put the camera in Playback mode before you switch it off so that the problem doesn't happen again.

Lens error of camera nikon s700

Buy a new camera im afraid to say. If the lens is not going back into the camera, its more than likely bent.

Tilt the camera up and look at the lens. If its bent, its done. Not covered under warranty.

SOMETIMES, not all the time, you can try and push the lens straight. "Pop it back into place". This may or may not work. But if your camera is not operating, you really dont have much to lose. Average repair cost is more than $120 dollars. Not worth it in some cases.

Nikon S200 len's was error,(because fall down-the lens stuck)

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. The cost will depend on what needs to be done.

Camera stuck in "lens error" mode

Hello, It's time to let a Nikon camera repairman take a look. If lens does not pop out, then it could be motor, shutter, etc, etc. Check out one of our Camera Repair providers and get a repair quote.

Nikon S200 Lens stuck inside

I had the same issue with my S210, so after reading other people's advice to send it in to Nikon and since that was going to probably cost me as much as the camera itself I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a little something. The lens on mine was a hair off center or had been pushed in on one side (barely - looking at yours you may be able to tell which side) - mine was in my purse also. So, I took my handy dandy skinny prying instrument (normal kitchen butter knife) took the battery out to make it try to open again, then when I popped the battery in as the lens tried to push out I pried the side I thought was a little lower back towards center...I heard a little pop and it worked! The lens came all of the way out and it's all good.

So, use gentle hands and try if you want, but don't think I warranty this!
