Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera

Nikon Coolpix 8800VR Digital Camera

I put my mini tripod on to my camera and apparently the legs are not stable enough when I left it on the top of the table. One of the legs gave up and the camera rolled down and fell on the floor, about approx. from 3 ft high.
I immediately checked everything looks ok, but when I turned it on to take pictures I'm getting "LENS ERROR" on all settings eg: Auto, Manual, Scene etc..
Is it fixable? If it is...will it cost me an arm & a leg?

I have heard of this problem and it was sometimes solved by the following...

1. Remove battery and memory card

2. Place a paperback book on a solid surface

3. Bump the camera firmly on the paperback book

4. Reinstall battery and test

Worth a shot if it can save you from sending it in for service.

I've been told that this is an expensive problem. I had an older Coolpix with a problem in the lens and it wasn't worth fixing.

Do you have home contents insurance that might cover it?

If you're not too picky you can order a third-party charger from here for less than a quarter of the price. I run three of my Nikons with chargers I got from there.

What does the red hand in the top right corner mean and what should i do about it??


The red hand in the upper-right corner is warning you that the shutter speed may be too slow to be handholding the camera. You can try adding light if possible, putting the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, or simply take a deep breath and shoot and hope for the best.

Blurred pictures, and Red hand Flashing warning


The red hand is warning you that the shutter speed is too slow for handholding. Your pictures are coming out blurred because the camera is moving during the relatively lengthy exposure.

Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.

Using a 70/200 lense with a annon 40D at a football game at night


to get good pictures you have to stay at least at the same speed as the aperture:
100mm - 1/100sec mini
200mm - 1/200sec mini
if you are in automatic mode, the camera says" there is no enough light, the aperture is max (f:2.8 or f:4) so i shut down the speed." and go against the rule. you have several solution:
1 you stay in automatic mode and take yor photos with a tripod.
2 you put your camera in speed pririty, with the good speed, and try not to moove during the shoot (you can put your camera on something stable)
3 you tune up the iso

Only Nikon can tell you that. Looks like the autofocus lens mechanism broke inside.
