Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 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?
