Nikno Coolpix L4

1. Camera had fatal lens error (therefore purchased 'new' one) 2. Purchased ("only used twice") CP L4 on Ebay 3. HELP! Okay, popped MY memory card in... cool, yes? then , NOTHING, but NOISE shows on the display monitor... All images on card are viewable just fine (so I know it's not the LCD screen--right?), but I can't take picture, there's nothing there! Please tell me it's something easy to fix!! I'm leaving for Italy in five days and need this camera!

This may not be able to be fixed.
Sounds like internal trouble.
Could be a loose link internally. Could be some problem with the ccd sensor. If the colors change as you are trying to take a picture, then suspect the ccd sensor.
If it is the ccd, then Nikon may fix it for free.
I suggest you go to the Nikon website for your country, and call the (usually toll free) number for service and information.
Take care,

Lens error


There are 2 fixes I know for this you can try.


1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2. If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. You don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the sd card and turn it on one last time.

Lens will not retract


As bad as I hated to, I purchased a new camera for $109.00 vs. $90.00 for the repair. I still intend to look around for a similar camera,maybe on eBay or at a yard sale for parts. I think that I would like to give the repair a whorl. I can't tear it up any worse ... it does not work now!

Thank you for allowing me to post ...

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.

Hey SandyG1019,
If you just purchased this camera 2 weeks ago it might still be within the retailers return/exchange period, and I would suggest you just exchange it for a new one. This error message should mean that something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand), but could also be do to a problem with the lens mechanism itself. If you choose to try and resolve the problem you could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. This being said I would suggest instead having the camera looked at by an authorized service technician since the camera is most likely covered under a manufacturers’ warranty, and the repair would most likely be free. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

The 3 studs that allow the lens to move in a circular motion are jammed outside the track. it will require a complete dissembly to fix . most folks just sell it on ebay to a repair person.

Coolpix L1 Lens error.


Seem like the AF system doesn't reach the home position, therefore the zoom is not closing. Or may be has been smashed and the zoom block is jammed.

Anyway you need professional help. Problem will be solved after a major srip down.
