I'm afraid that you are right about the lens being stuck.
The camera has several checks to make sure the lens can zoom freely in and out. If the camera detects there is a blockage of some kind, the lens will retract and switches of the camera to prevent more damage.
I'm afraid there is nothing you could do to fix it, other than bringing it to a repair shop and have them take a look at it.

What size is lens cap on nikon l810


I suspect it's 25mm but without actually putting a ruler across the front of the lens I can't be sure. If you want to buy one, you can order one from Nikon at http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Lens-Caps/25849/LC-CP25-Lens-Cap.html

Tip

Nikon Coolpix Cameras With Retractable Lenses Must be Kept Clean!


Over an extended period, I have seen many questions regarding Nikon Coolpix cameras such as the L810 that have problems with the retractable lens not extending or retracting. Believe it or not, these cameras are well engineered and can hold up to the riggers of industrial use if properly cared for. My department has three L810's that we purchased in 2011 that have been in use five days a week since that time with each taking an average of 150 exposures a day and they all still work. That is about 150,000 shutter actuations each. For comparison, Nikon's DSLRs higher end DX format cameras are rated at 100,000 shutter activations by Nikon while the professional cameras like the D810 is rated at 300,000. The secret to why our low end L810's have lasted so long is that we treat them with respect.

Lens jams are often the result of a dirt or dust accumulation the permeates the mechanism. ALWAYS keep the lens cap on when you are not actually taking pictures and keep your camera clean and away from dusty or damp environments. Be carful that your camera does not get bumped against any solid objects; especially when you have it swinging on a neck strap. Also, clean your lens immediately if it gets fingerprinted by following proper lens cleaning procedures. That will not prevent lens jams, but it will protect the delicate coating on your lens.

The Nikon L810 does not have interchangeable lenses. You can buy accessory lenses to fit on the front of the camera's built-in lens, but you cannot remove the lens itself.

Nixon coolpix l810 will not turn on just replaced batteries wondering if batteries are the issue


When switching it on you have to be sure you remove the lens cap beforehand as an error message will be displayed. If you do not see an error message and the cap is off, you might not have the updated firmware version 1.1. Nikon's website states:
"When some new AA lithium batteries were inserted in the camera and the camera was turned on, the camera sometimes failed to function. This issue has been resolved."

Getting error message "Turn of the camera, remove the camera lens and turn on the camera"


This is an error due to programming of the camera. The lens is either sticking or not open fully as it should causing the camera to think the lens isn't open at all. I would try to download an update for your camera's software or have it sent in and upgraded.

Lens error nikon coolpix 4300


This error occurs if camera is turned on before lens cap is removed. If you are removing the lens cap before turning the camera on and still getting this message, camera should be serviced by a qualified technician.
