Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

Nikon Coolpix S202

Lens error. lens comes out than back in turns off than on and goes back in and out than says lens error. this camera is only about 8 months old. i have a feeling if it were to get repaired some else will go wrong. doesn't seem like a reliable product very disappointed in nikon and most likely never will buy their products again. I have the same problem, when I turn on my Coolpix S202 the lens goes in and out several times but then I get the "Lens Error" message. My camera is also only 6 months old and I am also afraid if I get it fixed something else will go wrong. I will also never buy another Nikon product again, very dissapointed. Thought Nikon was a better manufacturer than that. I'm having exactly the same problem! Everything I read keeps saying "Oh, you must have dropped it on the floor or in water" but I've done no such thing. It's only 5 months old and I've barely used it! I'm so frustrated. I wish there was some advice as to what to do. I guess I'm going to have to pound the pavement and see if there is anyone who can fix it...*sigh*

My nikon coolpix s210 had a "lens error" after several months of use. The tapping of the camera against my hand did not work. Eventually i did use the method of putting my nail under the lens and pulling as I tried turning the camera on. I had to apply a good amount of force and was afraid i would break the camera, but after doing this several times, the lens did click back into place.

This is probably THE single 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

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Nikon service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Lens error on Nikon coolpix S202


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.
