This may be related/helpful since lens mechanism possibly same as S3: My S3 in normal home use (no sand, wet or shock) just now displayed the Lens cover error message, with cover only half open. Using a tooth pick I eased it gently and it popped open, took a few trial pictures, and changed settings etc, seemed fine, but lens cover would not fully close unless eased. Now will open and close slowly on its own but error message blocks camera use. Then spotted cause - a loose thin sliver of silver trim from below flash around (there?s a gummy substance where it should be). When I first saw one end of this it was between the lens cover and the camera body as though part of the mechanism, so I did not touch it. Now I know it?s jamming the lens cover operation is it OK to open the camera case to get it out? Questions: (a) Has anyone done this please? (b) Will this clear error message? Thanks.

When I turn off my CoolPix S6 the lens would close completely. When I turn on my camera the lens is completely open and the screen just says lens cover error.


The lens is damaged and needs to be replaced. Sometimes with use or maybe an accidental hit to the lens can cause a malfunction to the camera resulting in that error. Also if you for example took the camera to the beach, getting something like sand in the camera can jam up the lens and prevent it from fully extending or retracting.

My Nikon Coolpix S5 has a broken lens; it son't fully close/ open. The message displayed on the screen says "Lens cover error". Is it something that can be repaired? How much would it cost to fix...

Lense error


try these:-
  • connect it to pc and on it
  • vaccum the barrel of lens
  • changing mem. card and batt. for 2min.
  • shake it.
  • on and off in different positions
  • hit the part near lens softly with palm (trust me this made mine work)
