My Coolpix L320 was working fine, then all of a sudden got stuck with the lens zoomed all the way out and a message on the screen that says, "Turn the camera off, remove the lens cap, and turn the cam

after changing the battery and gently push back on the lens it should automatically close if not then check around it it must be something stuck in between it

When I'm taking a picture, and i try to zoom, it zooms a little then stops, says lens error and goes black. If i turn it back on, it goes on, I just can't zoom.

Most digital cameras jams are the cost of lens problems while zooming, with Nikon Coolpix S4000, simply use your fingers carefully pulling on the lens while turning the camera on. this can be done by getting your fingernail under the lens opening and gently pull.muunlyte5608.jpg

I was looking for right size of filter (or protector for lens) for my Nikon Coolpix P90. It's so complicated. what can u advice me? Thanks in advance

Look on the fron of the lens, it should say something like Auto Nikkor 24-50 f3.5/5.6 ( or similar) that is the mamximum aperture at different zoom levels. besides that it may say something like 37mm either on side of lens near front or on front itself. If you have the lens cap, look inside the lens cap, the size is usually marked there and your camera uses the same size screww on filters.

Lens Cover Error-Lens Cover will not open

You may have dust or some liquid blocking the cap from opening. Take a q t tip and clean cap. Use the q t tip to try to jar cap loose.

Lens will not open

Try pushing the lens gently inside then side to side. It should zoom right out when turned on. It happened to my S70 coz when my kids played with it dropped it.
