    I had the same problem with 2 of my nikons: Nikon L11 and Nikon L12. I send it to Nikopn for repair but the repair cost was more than the new camera. It was like $212.



    Also, the battery life if crazy. Sometime I could not get more than 10 shots before I get battery life exausted. Also sometimes happen to fresh batteries, what gives ??!?!? If you put in fresh batteries, make a few shots then switch to video, bam! You get a message "battery exausted'!!!

This site truly gave me the inspiration to "slap" my camera out of its funk. I have had my Coolpix P2 camera for 2 years, and it has never given me problems, until I got the dreaded "Lens error", for seemingly no reason (did not drop it, spill anything on it, etc.). The barrel would not go in, the lens opened halfway. I tried removing the battery, that did not work. I tried the next steps, blowing on it, putting it in review mode, turning it on upside down, etc etc ... finally, I tried shaking and hitting and pushing. Still nothing.

After about 5 or 6 times of hitting it, one would think there was no hope ... well, by the 7th (10th?) time, I tried hitting it from the top right side, and, everything fell back into place. I have my camera back again!

Thanks to this site. Sometimes even machines need a little shake. =)

Good luck!

"Lens Error" is the usual condition for a Nikon 4200. To have a Nikon that works as it should instead of displaying "Lens Error" is a special circumstance. The best suggestion is to never buy Nikon again.

Says lens error and won't turn off


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

My Nikon Coolpix L12 will power on but won't take a photo. There are no error messages on the screen. The lens will extend and retract. The zoom works. The shutter release button depresses but will not...


Well, seems like a camera failure to me,actually the processor inside the boards is wrong, maybe your product is a failure ones, I think it's better for you find the dealer or service center to solve this problem.

But, you can try remove the battery off from the camera, and let the camera without it for about 2 hours, then try put it on again, maybe this trick can help you!!!

My camera nikon coolpix l12 keeps saying lens error,what should i do


This is a serious problem with Coolpix cameras. If it is still under warranty then take it to a warranty repair facility for Nikon.
If it is not under warranty you could try removing the battery for a few minutes, put it back in and try the camera again. As a last resort before tossing the camera out.....CAUTION DOING THE FOLLOWING MAY RESULT IN PERMANENT DAMAGE TO YOUR CAMERA, DO THESE AT YOUR OWN RISK.... Other remedies that may work would be to gently tap on the sides of the camera to see if you lens may be stuck in a certain position. Or, you could gently and slightly twist the lens back and forth.... VERY GENTLY though. This may free up the lens and allow it to work.
I hope some of this works for you and good luck.

I had this issue and I read on the net to hold the lens down on a table of some sort and apply slight pressure while pressing the power button, it should go right back in, It did for me!

Nikon coolpix l12 lens error


Dear All, Looking at other threads this seems a standard fault for many brands. I know the dreaded 'lens error' is a recognised Nikon fault.

I had the same problem with a Nikon Coolpix L1; lens would shuttle in and out rather woriedly and then get stage fright and freeze, hiding behind a lens error tag.

The solution came from a similar site to this and listed at least ten happy punters who tried it and found it worked, so, brace yerselfs....

Put a paperback book on decent sort of a table and slam the flat base of the camera down onto it as hard as you dare. If you slam and hold firm to the book it seems to give better shock without having to belt the poor thing to hell.

Worked first time for me. Not a cure, though. You'll have to repeat it every few months perhaps.

I suppose your camera may explode during the process; I decided mine was unusable as it was and so I'd nothing to lose.

If you break your wrist change to the other hand and don't slam so hard this time!!!

Before that I found some correlation between battery type, charge and lens function but the book bash was an instant cure.

Do let me know of any success
