To things to try. 1. clean the battery compartment with a Q-Tip "dampened" in some rubbing alcohol. Do this to the battery and the charging station also.It just occured to me that you cannot get into the main menu because the lcd is black. I "was" going to suggest also resetting the cam to it's factory defaults. Try the first one it has worked for me many many times.If it does not work than you may need a new battery. The indicator on the LCD screen is NOY always accurate for battery readings. Good luck, my friend, Dana

SOURCE: lens error nikon cool pix lens goes in and out

Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Nikon cool pix lens error


Fault in the system controller, failure of the auto lens mechanism, I would suggest that you must take help if the following tip does not work.
Remove battery and keep aside. Tap gently on the lens with the palm, replace battery and repeat this to switch on.
Try this out several times to see if a locked mechanism releases.
Hope this works

Nikon cool pix was dropped with lens out, now jammed and there is a lens error...ANY WAY to fix??? PLEASE HELP


This one is almost assuredly headed for the repair shop, but you might try pulling on the lens a little bit. What has happened is that a gear tooth was skipped because of the impact on the lens, and it is probably cocked to one side. Look at the lens orientation carefully. You might be able to **** it back. Good luck.

Lens error message on nikon coolpix L18 I purchased my Nikon L18 Cool Pix camera last September ('08). Last week when I turned it on, the lens extended fully, then retracted fully as I got a "lens error"...


Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

Thanks.
