Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
I dropped my camera on the floor, lens side hit the floor. Now the camera lens is stuck open. I turn the camera on and off and it wants to open/close but the lens stays out. It dented the lens a little bit. I want to know how to fix it, if I can even fix it and how much will it cost? Thank you!!
I already tried posting this but I think it falied. Just in case, here it is again!
I just now fixed my own Nikon S220 (very similar to 210) which suffered the same fate as yours. However, I laid my camera down on a cushioned foot-rest (you could use a couch cushion or pillow on a table) with the lens facing UP, pressed down on both sides of lens front gently yet firmly, and BAM, the lens went back in all the way. I turned the power back on and the camera is good as new (except for the small dent from the fall of course).
I suggest you try this before spending $100 on repairs and/or buying a new camera!

I had the exact same problem when I dropped my camera about 5 feet onto concrete. I noticed the lens was jimmied to one side a little bit. It was stuck open and could not use the camera. I just pinched the lens and pulled it out and it works great now.
