Question about Nikon Coolpix 775 Digital Camera

Nikon coolpix 775 digital camera

When I turn the camera on, I get a system error and I noticed the lens cover does not open up. Itermittently it will open up and it seems to be working ok, and then after a few minutes I get the system error again. I have tried to free up the zoom lens by using Isopropal alcahol and tried cleaning the lens cover to no avail. It appears the zoom feature is sticking, but I'm not sure. I'm not getting any error message related to lens but again, will get the system error within a few miniutes even if the lens and zoom are working. Don't want to buy another camera. Will be more than happy to get this fixed if it is worth it.

Please advise

Jammed lens and system error on Nikon 775 digital camera. Have been told that it costs more to fix than to buy a new one. This camera is a piece of junk. Will never buy a Nikon again. They should be ashamed of themselves for not properly testing this product before putting it on the market.

My nikon coolpix s210 shows lens error

Hey digi_5

This is a common problem with Nikon and it isn't covered under warranty since Nikon sees it as an error resulting from usage. Apparently, the Coolpix is pretty delicate and any slight bump can cause a lens error.

Some people have tried gently twisting the camera lens back into place or gently tapping/bumping the side of camera.

If neither of those work, I'd say try getting the camera repaired professionally - if it isn't covered by Nikon, they'll charge you heavily. I've used Teleplan Camera Repair before and they're cheap compared to other places.

I've heard that once the camera is fixed, turn it to the Playback mode before turning it off - it apparently helps avoid the problem altogether.

Coolpix 775 camera does not shut off. Probably the shut off button is not operating

This could be a main-board problem The fact the lens operates indicated that mechanism is OK So what to do- Check Nikon support - will it be repaired at reasonable cost or will you simply bin it- who knows

Lens cover doesn't open

Check out the Tech support Team at NIKON Don't fiddle with it your self - this is a very delicate mechanism At fours years old- it is likely that a new camera is the only remedy.
