When i try to turn it on the green light by the on/off button blinks a few times and then stops and does nothing. Im soooo confused!! Can this be fixed.?

Bumps can damage the lens.
Try this.. hit the camera into your other palm stiffly. This sometimes will jar what is stuck and may re-set what is wrong. Don't do it too hard. Sometimes it may work also by putting a pad on a table and bumping the edge of the camera carefully to dislodge the jam, if there is one.

This technique has worked for me in some cases.

Hi I slipped in the garage and dropped the camera when it was on==batteries came out and lens of course didn't fully retract. Put batteries back in and the green light comes on and beeps but won't...


Sorry about your moms camera Terry... but it sounds like it needs the lens replaced. If the lens is stuck out at an angle you can *SNAP* the inner lens section back into place if you're lucky, and it will work again like normal.

I don't know your model, but a refurb lens can usually be installed for about $75 including return shipping. You should check the replacement cost of a used camera and see which is cheaper in the long run.

Hope this helps!

Says lens error restart what is this


Hello :

It is a pretty major problem .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.

Please read the information on this link carefully .

please rate !

good luck .

Nikon coolpix s70 lens error, need help.


Hello :

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.

I hope this will help .

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.

Camera won't work at all. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!


If the batteries were left in, that could cause corrosion, which will cause problems like you mentioned. It seems to me there is some kind of electrical problem within the camera circuits.
The smallest amount of corrosion can cause these problems.
It is always best to remove the batteries when not using for a time.

Won't turn on! Possible lens problem?


My daughter just had this problem with her camera. The camera was off with the lens barrel extended. When I looked at it closely, I noticed that the inner part of the lens barrel was at a slight angle to the camera. I pushed firmly on the low side of the inner part of the barrel, and it popped the rest of the way out. Camera works fine now. Good luck!
