Re: nikon coolpix l3 lens stuck/error msg

Go to and read the information concerning you kind of camera. All info is there including if you can have new firmware or not. If new firmware is listed, you can download it and install it according to the instructions given.

Note: If your camera is working fine, be very careful about firmware. Your camera can become completely useless if the firmware is not installed right.

Some problems can be corrected if you load the new firmware. If there is a problem with the original firmware, Nikon will have that listed as well.
take care,

My Nikon coolpix L3 appeared LENS ERROR how do i solve this fault

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

See my posts on this problem. By forcing the lens with you fingers into the camera, it may put it on track. This can damage the camera even further, but may be worth a try. You can try to pull it out when starting, and then pushing in on turning it off.
Worth a try, may work.
