Question about Nikon COOLPIX L2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera lens stuck out and wont turn on

My camera lens is stuck out and my canon sd1000 camera wont turn on. I didnt drop it or anything, i simple turned it on and picked up something else at the same time and then went to go back to my camera and the lens was out and i couldnt turn it on. I have read the simple at home fixya's but i can do any of it because my camera wont do anything when you hit the power button. There is no readjusting then the lens is still out...nothing. Not even an error code. the only thing that i can think of that may have caused something is that it was really cold...i think it was feels like -20 degrees. Please help. my e-mail is axki0501@stcloudstate.edu if anyone has any suggestions.

    This happened to my son in Hong Kong. He said the batteries ran out while the lens was out. When he put fresh batteries in, all the camera would do is make a sound as if it was trying to extend the lens, but the lens is already fully out. I would like to know how to get the lens back in and the camera functioning again.

    same issue, but was not cold. Apparently the SD1000's have a lot of issues!

    The same thing happened with my SD750, I took good care of my camera, never dropped it or anything. I took it to a few concerts but it never got rattled around more than usual. I loved that camera and don't know why it's doing this

My Canon SD1000 screen has gone blank.


First press the DISP button to make sure that you didn't just accidentally turn it off. Next, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras (very common for the SD1000 by the way, but also very easy to fix). The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

By the way, my wife happens to own a SD1000. Great little camera, but it's prone to stuck shutter every once and a while. Easily fixed each time though by simply opening the battery door while on, and gently flicking the lens barrel a few times. Again, see the link.

Note that your camera does not have shutter priority mode (Tv) as listed in the link. Instead, put the camera in manual mode and turn off the flash, and also turn off the LCD display (press the DISP button). With these settings, try the fix in a darkened room, opening the battery door immediately after taking the picture. Give it several tries, if no luck consider also trying step 5a described in the link.

Canon SD1000 lens error


Turn off the Camera, remove the Battery pack, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Reinsert the Battery, then buzz around the lens for a few times then check if it works. Make sure that the Battery is fully charged.

The error message indicates that the lens is not able to adjust itself.

Lens won't close


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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
