This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

My camera nikon coolpix l12 keeps saying lens error,what should i do


This is a serious problem with Coolpix cameras. If it is still under warranty then take it to a warranty repair facility for Nikon.
If it is not under warranty you could try removing the battery for a few minutes, put it back in and try the camera again. As a last resort before tossing the camera out.....CAUTION DOING THE FOLLOWING MAY RESULT IN PERMANENT DAMAGE TO YOUR CAMERA, DO THESE AT YOUR OWN RISK.... Other remedies that may work would be to gently tap on the sides of the camera to see if you lens may be stuck in a certain position. Or, you could gently and slightly twist the lens back and forth.... VERY GENTLY though. This may free up the lens and allow it to work.
I hope some of this works for you and good luck.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

I had this issue and I read on the net to hold the lens down on a table of some sort and apply slight pressure while pressing the power button, it should go right back in, It did for me!

Nikon coolpix l12 lens error


Dear All, Looking at other threads this seems a standard fault for many brands. I know the dreaded 'lens error' is a recognised Nikon fault.

I had the same problem with a Nikon Coolpix L1; lens would shuttle in and out rather woriedly and then get stage fright and freeze, hiding behind a lens error tag.

The solution came from a similar site to this and listed at least ten happy punters who tried it and found it worked, so, brace yerselfs....

Put a paperback book on decent sort of a table and slam the flat base of the camera down onto it as hard as you dare. If you slam and hold firm to the book it seems to give better shock without having to belt the poor thing to hell.

Worked first time for me. Not a cure, though. You'll have to repeat it every few months perhaps.

I suppose your camera may explode during the process; I decided mine was unusable as it was and so I'd nothing to lose.

If you break your wrist change to the other hand and don't slam so hard this time!!!

Before that I found some correlation between battery type, charge and lens function but the book bash was an instant cure.

Do let me know of any success
