    I have a Nikon Coolpix L3 5.1mp. I accidently dropped the camera while it was on. The lens got stuck. When I tried to turn it off it reads lens error. The lens tries to return to its normality and then falls back as if trying to close with a grinding noise. I've taken out the batteries and placed them back. I've tried numerous times to turn it off and on. It continues to give me the lens error and then shuts off.

    Same thing except no grinding noise with it.

    It's "almost closed" and won't move either way.

Lens error


There is a mechanical displacement. Lens has been shifted to side. That grinding sounds come because motor pushes lens to retract but something is stopping lens's way.......
So get it serviced. Don't turn it on or off, It increases pressure on motor.....

Camera dropped and lens is stuck one day i tried to make a video on my camera but then it fell and now the lense is stuck and when i turn it on it wont come out and when i turn it off it wont close


this may sound drastic but, grab the lens and try manualy realigning. If you hear a grinding noise the lens assembly has to be replaced. Flat rate from sony is usually pretty reasonable. Hope this helps.

Lens error,restart camera


My Camera: Canon PowerShot SD770 IS Digital Camera

Went to the beach yesterday, by the end of the night my camera gave me this error: "lens error, restart camera". The lens would no longer come out.

I figured sand got stuck within the lens, so I did the following:

1. Turn camera up-side-down (with lens facing down)
2. Gently tap the sides of the camera (to loosen particles in lens)
3. Turn camera on
4. The lens will eventually come out
5. Gently tap the sides of the lens
6. Turn camera off (continue tapping side of lens as it retracts)

I turned the camera on and off a couple of times to ensure I removed all sand particles from the camera.

Now the camera works...thank god.

Stuck Camera Lens


You could try the Casio Tech Support team, but if as you suspet it is a matter of dirt- there is nothing to be done except replace the camera- the cost os shippin and examining the camera etc. will come close to its replacement.
