I am trying to find out and buy a lens cap for my digital camera, even a replacement. I have try almost a dozen places where they sale lens cap, but when they ask me for the model they say they do not have them and even when they ask me for the diameter of the lens the handbook does not says anything to see if any other fits.

Re: lost lens cap
I would sugest using an adaptor ring. You can reduce the size of your lens opening down a common size lens cap that will fit your camera. If you can't go this route then give me the make and model number and I will see what I can do for you.

Try switching of the camera. Remove the lens and check if al contacts are in good order (no dents), clean and shiny if they look good to you, replace the lens and switch on the camera. If the error returns, the best thing you can do is is late the error, by placing another lens. If you don't have on. take the camera to a camera store and ask there if you can try another lens.
Then when you are sure where the error is, bring that part to the Nikon service centre, Or when it is the lens, buy a new one. The standard lens (or even the 18 - 105mm) are not that expensive.
Sorry, If your viewfinders lens is defective or lost, I'm afraid even HP does not have any spare parts after almost 10 years. Better try to buy a N307 on eBay, for a few dollar and use the lens from that one.
Chances are something is blocking the lens. It could be a lens cap, or your finger, or even a grain of dust or sand.
Here's the best first course of action: 1. Turn off the camera 2. Blow sharply into the areas around the lens/lens cap. 3. Turn it on again and see if that resolves the problem. Be sure nothing is physically obstructing the lens. (No lens cap, no finger, etc.) 4. If blowing doesn't work, try using a can of compressed air like you would buy at an office supply store, and blow out the area around the lens and lens housing. Chances are, if nothing was obstructing the lens that you could see, it might be a bit of dust or sand. Even a little sand can totally screw up the lens and keep it from moving in or out. 5. If this doesn't work, you should take your camera to a camera shop and have it professionally inspected and cleaned. Check out how much this will cost, though, before you do -- it might not make sense to pay what they want to charge, versus just buying a new camera.
Lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The
lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to
return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are
third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.
Best place to buy a lens for that camera in on EBAY....cameras, even digitals, are made to take a drop, but, sometimes it can hurt the camera, over times it shouldn't...buy a new lens, and give it a try.
Sounds like dirt or something is preventing the lens from opening up. Your best bet is to get a can of compressed air and a fully charged set of batteries and while the lens is oopening, spray the air into the lens opening. If after a dozen tries, then you may need to have the camera checked out. Keep in mind that the cost of a high end tech (taking apart a digital camera is about as difficult as open heart surgery!) may cost more that just buying another one.
