Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon 8700 I let someone borrow my camera, and like someone else that posted, I'm getting a lens error when I power it up. Everything physically appears fine, and it turns on, the lens comes out, and I can view photos on the camera, but I cannot shoot a picture. I tried someones suggestion of leaving the batteries out over night, but no change, and I cannot find anyone who knows how to repair this camera local. any help?

    Hi
    Exaclty the same problem with mine. I sent it off the Nikon as they requested as they thought it was a CCD fault. Got a letter from them 3 days later requiring £173 to repair it or £5.99 to send it back. I will never buy another Nikon

I had a Lens ERR a year ago and after a while it started working again on it's own... that error means that something (dust particle, etc) is stuck in the lens; you can try to clean it with a brush or blower; or take it to a repair shop... it's a pretty simple thing to resolve.

Lens error. lens is currently retracted. will not open. nikon s8100 bought xmas 2010.


Had issue with lens stuck and not retracting on nikon s8100. first removed battery. then manually (gently) rotated lens counterclockwise until lens seated in fully retracted position. inserted battery, turned camera on and camera operational again. I suspect that root cause of lens jamming was turning off camera while simultaneously moving zoom lever

Tthere is a lens error appearing when i switch on my nikon camera


A lens error can be caused by physical damage to the mechanism that controls the lens, or debris that is interfering with the operation of the lens.

This article may be able to help you with a "do it yourself" solution.

In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting-- though with most consumer digital cameras, labor and parts cost of a repair can easily exceed the value of the camera.

Hi i buy used nikon coolpix e8700 and when i turn on after 5 sec i have on the screan lens error and on top litlle screan i got error 60


Hello

Unfortunately a "lens error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

When I turn it on, I get a "LENS ERROR" MESSAGE


When one gets a lens error it usually means there is a physical lockup of the gears inside. It may need to be repaired by Nikon.com, if repair is economical to the owner of the camera.

Lens error


You can't get that information here, because the camera needs to be physically examined to tell you whether it can be repaired and what the cost may be. You can ask around your local camera shops. Their advice is free! Better still, try getting the person who stood on it, to do it for you.

Lens failure or lens error


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
