Question about Nikon Coolpix 5200 Digital Camera
The lens is stuck open, and reads 'lens error' yet nothing seems to help it. It had been working fine, I went to take a photo and it stuck and came up wit the 'lens error' message. It seems to be permanently broken and it's only 4 months old. Help?!
The lens is probably stuck with a piece of dirt or something jamming it. You could gently try and pull on the lens with a slight turn in each direction to see if you can dislodge the particle.
Some individuals on the internet have felt comfortable enough to try and disassemble the camera to reveal the parts of the lens drive mechanism, clean it and put it back together and this sometimes will help (but that is beyond this response) because there are enough locations on the net that describe this.
Since it's 4 months old, you may want to return it for a replacement.
