Try to find out if there is something else obstructing the free movement of the lens barrel. And then try to find out if your battery (yes) are still ok. If they can't give enough power, the motor to drive the lens, can't work and the camera also "thinks" the lens got stuck.
Sometimes, a gear that is involved with moving the lens became broke. If that happens, only a repair shop can help.

How do I remove stuck rear lens cap for telephoto lens on D3200


Are you sure you're turning it in the proper direction? Nikon lenses (and thus rear lens caps) screw in the "wrong" way. The lens cap turns clockwise to remove.

If it's an ordinary plastic lens cap, as a last resort you could cut it open with a knife.

Lens obstructed


Oh dear. Unfortunately this is common with many lenses that extend and retract on these cameras. Fuji is also known to have similar issues.
At some stage, the camera has been knocked while the lens has been extended. You may deny this, however - it doesn't take much to knock those little suckers out of alignment. Even as simple as putting it down on the table will do it! It cannot be fixed with 'layman' fingers and needs to be seen by a technician. Cost can be >$50 and may take a week or more to be returned...worse case - still UNFIXED!

Need toknow how to gain acces to change the front left turn signal bulb on my 2004 VW Convertible.


If your Beetle is a "Turbo S", the whole front clip (bumper facia) has to come off.

For all other Beetle models:
Remove the screw cap at the rear of the front turn/marker lense.
Remove the screw
Pull the lamp assembly forward
Disconnect the electrical connector
Twist the lamp socket to remove it from the lamp assembly
Remove the bulb
Reverse procedure to install

In the middle of taking pictures, all of a sudden my Nikon P100 will become blurry and then the Lense Error message will come up saying, "Lense Error: if the lense cap is on the camera, turn the...


Could be sand particles getting into the seams around the lens barrel, binding it up. Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Lens cap?


Try removing the battery, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That may reset the lens cap sensor.

If you're getting the 18-4489-957-000 error code, then give it a good tap on the corner where the lens cap is. A little tapping and the lens cover should pop closed. When you turn the camera on again it will probably work just fine.

I was just about to junk my camera when I googled the error code and found this very tip in another thread. It worked like a charm.
