I read a blog that I think was through your website. A lady names Chrusty wrote sometime in 2006 said she had the same problem only with a differentstyle camera. She said she put it in the hands of her father. He corrected it by pointing the camera toward the ceiling and pressed the on off button qnd the shutter button at the same the same time and the problem corrcted itself. I followed the instuctions and it worked. The camera is back to normal, at least it is right now. I have put your website in "My Favorites" for future reference. Thanks for being there.

Nikon cool pix lens error


Fault in the system controller, failure of the auto lens mechanism, I would suggest that you must take help if the following tip does not work.
Remove battery and keep aside. Tap gently on the lens with the palm, replace battery and repeat this to switch on.
Try this out several times to see if a locked mechanism releases.
Hope this works

Nikon cool pix was dropped with lens out, now jammed and there is a lens error...ANY WAY to fix??? PLEASE HELP


This one is almost assuredly headed for the repair shop, but you might try pulling on the lens a little bit. What has happened is that a gear tooth was skipped because of the impact on the lens, and it is probably cocked to one side. Look at the lens orientation carefully. You might be able to **** it back. Good luck.

Nikon cool pix lens error and will not focus


To things to try. 1. clean the battery compartment with a Q-Tip "dampened" in some rubbing alcohol. Do this to the battery and the charging station also.It just occured to me that you cannot get into the main menu because the lcd is black. I "was" going to suggest also resetting the cam to it's factory defaults. Try the first one it has worked for me many many times.If it does not work than you may need a new battery. The indicator on the LCD screen is NOY always accurate for battery readings. Good luck, my friend, Dana

Lens error message on nikon coolpix L18 I purchased my Nikon L18 Cool Pix camera last September ('08). Last week when I turned it on, the lens extended fully, then retracted fully as I got a "lens error"...


Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

Thanks.

Lense 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

Hi I found this info on the Nikon Australia website:

"System Error" or "Lens Error" message in LCD monitor trnsp.gif Question My COOLPIX camera displays a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message. What should I do? trnsp.gif Answer Having a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message displayed on the camera's LCD monitor would generally indicate that your camera needs servicing. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with your camera (or a Nikon approved card).
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
On the other hand, a Lens Error generally means that an error has occured during the lens operation. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
  3. Turn on the camera.
If the above tips do not help, your camera must be sent to our Nikon Authorised Service Centres, there are no user serviceable parts in our Nikon COOLPIX cameras. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we will do everything to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible. Click Here for our Nikon Authorised Service Centres details.


Seems you may just have to remove and replace the battery - sort of like a Windows Restart to fix a computer problem! - this would reset your camera's memory.

Hope this helps.
