Nikon Coolpix S550 Lens Error.. Need fix without spending

I bought my Nikon just about a year ago and I've had Lens Error problems with it before, but I had been able to fix them by turning my camera on and off for a while. This time, though, the lens isn't even opening, it's just making noises for a little bit, then it says Lens Error. I brought it to the beach the day before and it was working fine. I get that there is probably sand in it or I accidentally bumped it, but I can't afford to get it fixed because it will cost $130, and the camera was only $200. I was wondering if anyone knew how I could possibly fix this problem myself, or without using a ton of money.

No, even if you could find a lens for free this is not an easy camera to replace the lens on. Even a qualified tech would take up to an hour to replace. Understand that today's cameras low cost makes replacing the camera a better option than repairing a camera who's value used is less than the repair cost.

This is such a common problem that someone has written a blog just addressing this one error. You can read it here - it describes it far more completely than I ever could! Sorry, it's kinda bad news really.

Whenever I take a picture with my Nikon Coolpix S550 camera the picture has white horizontal lines in it.


I´ve got the same problem and think, that it`s the ccd unit.

Someone is offering the lens with ccd unit on ebay.

My nikon s550 wont extend


What finally worked for me was a mix of the ideas listed here. I placed a vacuum hose against the lens and turned on the vacuum, then turned on the camera and tried to gently pull them apart. There was just enough suction to pull the lens through the spot it was sticking on and PRESTO! It works again! The focus was nasty at first, but another quick power cycle fixed that up. The lens hasn't locked up again despite many power cycles. I used a proper canister vacuum which happens to have a new bag in it, so plenty of suction.

Blurry images (after a lens error)


There is a mechanical displacement in your camera. Definitely, it is not a software problem. Actually Digi Cams are very delicate, especially small ones.... So get it serviced from a authorised service station. They will fix the problem....
Pleas rate the answer iof you find it useful.

CoolPix L 18 Problem


It probably can be fixed if you can get to them. Most cameras' lens assemblies are replaced as a unit when they go bad, it's just not cost effective to spend the time to tediously take them apart, repair the problem, and reassemble. You sound pretty mechanically inclined to have fixed the gears, so I would say you could probably pull this off if you try. Good luck, it's not what most people should try at home!

I bought the Nikon Coolpix about two years ago. Suddenly all the pictures taken are overexposed. What do I do?


Two things to check...ISO (should be auto ISO or a setting between 100-400) and Exposure Compensation (should be set to "0")

Check out the Tech support Team at NIKON Don't fiddle with it your self - this is a very delicate mechanism At fours years old- it is likely that a new camera is the only remedy.
