Lens error and blurry photos

My photos are all of a sudden blurry and the screen went black and said something about a lens error and then it wouldnt do anything, not even turn off. I had to take the batteries out and then the lens still wouldn't retract.

If your images are blurry and the lens wont move smoothly it is very probable that some kind of force on the lens has damaged a gear, barrel or even dislodged an element internally. When the lens detects an obstruction in its movement the camera reports accordingly,"lens error". You should have the camera checked by a service centre, it will most likely need the lens replaced as they are not serviceable.

I can't get rid of 'Lens Error' message and keep my camera switched on for more than a minute.


You don't need to drop a camera to get a lens error. Could be anything, from holding the camera in a wrong way (touching the lens barrel) or a bit of dust in the barrel or a gear, or a gear that breaks off. If the lens retracts correct when the camera is switched of, and comes out to the full extend when it is switched on, you should think everything is in working order. But when you say, the screen looks ver blurry that could be an indication, the lens is not coming out correct, or the focus mechanics does not work correct. I'm afraid you have to bring the camera in to a service centre (or buy a new one) if you can't solve this, by again take out the battery, charge the battery and reinsert the battery.

My battery has went dead and when I went to charge it. It wouldnt charge at all. Plus, when it was working and I would go to take pictures, it would sound as if something was loose in the lens.


If your Nikon EN-EL10 battery for your Coolpix S4000 won't be charged, there seems something wrong with your battery or battery charger, so you need a new one. The problem about lens, if something was loose, there maybe a screw and after a term it may cause lens error.

My camera's screen suddenly went black after taking a photo. I thought the battery's low when that happened but the lense won't shut or come back. the On/off was just blicking. I tried turning it on again...


Hi,


The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to Nikon service center. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.


Thank you

Blurry images (after a lens error)


There is a mechanical displacement in your camera. Definitely, it is not a software problem. Actually Digi Cams are very delicate, especially small ones.... So get it serviced from a authorised service station. They will fix the problem....

same thing happened to me. Honestly you have to push the screen in as a hard as you can, I was afraid this would break it(honestly it is already broken) but it went right in!

OK guys, it seems to be the lenses motor which for some reason burns out. I put a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 mm AF(great lens by the way) on the d200 body and it works fine. I sent the 18-200 in for repair and I won't tell you how much they wanted to charge me to fix it, thank God it's still under warrantee. Suggest you all try out another AF lens on the D200 body to see how that works. If ok then send in your boom lens and pray that your not over the 1 year warrantee limit.
