Question about Nikon COOLPIX L5 Digital Camera
When the problem started I pushed the power button on and the green light would turn on for a second but the lens wouldnt come out and nothing on the screen, then i tried to clear the dust changed the batteries, and smacked it a couple times lightly, now when i push the power button the lens pops out the screen on the back flashes on for a split second then nothing, the little green light shut off after about 10 seconds but the lens stay out
Sounds like grit in the lens mechanism..... but is it worth enough to get it serviced?

i had someone with the same camera have a problem like yours but it wouldnt turn off and the only way to power the camera on was pressing the power and blue play button. i called nicon and they said try a reset all in the setup menu but this didnt work. i then played for a little longer with it and found if i gentally twisted the body of the camera it would turn on and off as per it should. so i removed the back of the camera ( coution very small screws) and found that the blur control ribbon cable for the top control board had come loose.take something non conductive and not sharp and carfully push the ribbon cable back into is socket. once i had done this everything worked ok.
a few other words of caution while doing this keep track of where the screws come from as they are different lenghts.do not have the batterys in the camera as the flash caps will be charged and if you touch the wrong thing ZAP you could get a nice supprise. and finally when repacing the back of the camera make sure the selector switch for movie , scene and camera is connected right otherwise you will have to remove the back again and fix this issue
i hope this works for you

It sounds like you should try a new set of batteries in the camera. I have a similar camera and the flash is the first to go when the batteries are dying.
I hope this helps,

had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.

Most of these kinds of errors come as a result of some kind of impact, sand or dirt exposure, possible water damage, or some other problem with the lens.
There is a possibility that the lens is off track.
Try pulling or pushing (not too hard either way) and see if it may be off track and return it to the correct setting.
Since it is not working anyway, try the above a few times and then test the camera to work right.
I have fixed more than one with similar (off track problems) and they worked good after wards.
Worth a try.
If nothing works, I suggest to sell it (include all that you have with the sale) on a site such as Ebay as parts, or as is repair. It should bring something like $20.00 to $50.00. The LCD is worth something over $15.00 alone. The other parts of the camera has value to those who repair cameras.
