Question about Nikon COOLPIX P60 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Coolpix P60 - had it hooked to tv to view photos - was working fine. Unhooked it and now the lens stays out - it retracts when you hit the on/off button, but the lens always pops out again. Cannot view anything (viewfinder and screen are both blank except for camera settings). Have changed batteries, put in a different memory card - nothing seems to work..

    I took out the batteries as suggested - didn't work....

    Can't find anything in the manual as you suggested for 'hard reset'.




  • carmelv Jul 18, 2009

    Nothing in the camera menu - only reset all - just puts back the factory defaults...

  • carmelv Jul 18, 2009

    Yes...

    This step was already tried without success.

Hi,

Please try to hook up at TV again and see if still functioning there. Then press |[]| to alternate between displays.

It hope it will work.

Try resetting the camera. Keep in mind that you need to create a back up for all the files saved in your camera (regardless if the files are in the memory card or in the built-in memory). To reset the camera, please follow the steps below:

1. Go to "Setup" located on top of the camera.
2. Select "Reset All", then you would have an option to reset it or not.

If you get the same problem after resetting the camera, I could say that there could be a serious problem with the camera and you might need to contact the manufacturer for repair.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Viewfinder and LED display both black.


Try pressing the power ON and when the lens has retracted, remove the batteries. Wait a few minutes. Press the power ON again. Now replace the batteries and try the camera again.

Powers on Lens move in then out,Blank display


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!

Lens Error!


In My case, the lens was coming out part way a start up and pulling back in without camera coming on. Some times the screen would stay a dark blue and could not be shut off. Ensure batteries are new or remove and replace existing. Lens will come out part way and retract when the battery door is opoened and closed. Press "on" button and as the lens comes out touch and hold the lens, with a finger placing pressure on the side of the lens. The lens will stay out. With camera upside down blow into the sliding mechanisms of the lens. Grip the furthest most extened lens with two fingers and pull the lens all the way out with steading pressure. The pressure should be equivalent to lifting one to two pounds of bread with two fingers. Perform this with the camera upside down so that any dirt particles can fall out. A slight rocking (side to side motion) of the lens may help. Once fully extended, open and close the battery door. The lens should retract. Turn on the camera. A couple of ideas relatd to this problem 1) If the concentric circles of the lens are not even, this could indicate a large grain of sand. After lens is extended or partialy extended push the lens on the side where the largest gap is while the camera is upside down. This may provide a larger gap for the grain to fall out. 2) Dirty camera case. I turned my camera case upside down over a piece of white paper and was amazed at the particles of sand that fell out. I turned the case inside out and completely brushed and vacuumed the case.

Reading lens error on nikoncoolpix l12


Hitting camera on desk once has partial fix.
When camera's batteries taken out & then put back in and the power on button pressed to switch camera on, the lens extends out & the camera now works.
BUT when the power button pressed to switch camera off the lens retracts AND a "Lens Error" msg appears on the LCD screen.
Just have to take batteries out to remove msg & start again as above but WITHOUT hitting the camera.
Thanks
