Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens error I've had my camera for about 9 months and it's been working fine. 2 weeks ago I turned it on, went to take a photo and instead got this "Lens error" and the lens won't retract back in and the camera won't do anything. Sounds like this is a typical problem. Anything I can do to get my camera working again?

SOURCE: lens will not retract

Just solved this problem on my Dimage G530. An earlier time the lens (inner part) was cocked to one side after a small drop. Pulling it back straight, out of the outer part, fixed it and the lens closed.

Then just this past trip, the lens was not retracting with the MF00C error and the lens looked straight. It had opened in a pocket and gotten bumped. I had even taken the case off but that did not offer any insight into fixing the problem. (They certainly cram a lot into the case). I was about to give up and just buy a new camera or was going to inquire at vistek to see how much it would cost to have it looked at this Saturday because I really like the camera. Anyway, to make a long story short. I decided to pull hard on the inner part to pull it out - basically try to cock it to one side then the other. The lens popped out to it normal position and now everything works fine. So it appears that if bumped the lens goes to a lock position to prevent any damage to the drive mechanism.

Hope this helps someone else with this problem.

Lens error 126 is telling you that the lens is out of alignment. You can try cycling the On/Off button several times to see if it works itself.

SOURCE: Lens problems... kind of

HEY, I REALLY LIKED YOUR PRESENTATION OF YOUR PROBLEM! VERY WELL DONE! I'M GOING TO OFFER A SOLUTION THAT I THINK WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. I THINK YOU NEED TO GO ONLINE TO TO THE CANON WEBSITE AND DOWNLOAD THE LATEST FIRMWARE FOR THE SD750 OR AT LEAST DOWNLOAD A FRESH VERSION, THEN CONNECT YOUR CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER AND SYNCRO THE TWO AND SEE IF THIS DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM. I BELIEVE THAT WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS THAT THE FIRMWARE HAS BEEN CORRUPTED SOMEHOW AND YOUR CAMERA IS GETTING CONFUSED SIGNALS. RESETTING IT TO FACTORY DEFAULT FIRMWARE SHOULD SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. IF IT DOESN'T THEN I THINK THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF A MECHANICAL PROBLEM, BUT RIGHT NOW I FEEL IT IS A FIRMWARE PROBLEM. TRY THIS AND SEE IF THIS DOESN'T WORK.OK? REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217--GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: lens won't retract

There are special springs, motors, gears, and guides inside these lenses.
If your lens won't retract, one of the above is bent, misaligned, or broken. There is not a 'quick fix' that can be applied in your situation since it is a physical problem, not a software malfunction. You can try to dismantle yourself but speaking from experience you are likely to make the problem worse. If you are unwilling to attempt repari yourself, either take it to a repair shop or upgrade.

There is a problem in the lens housing, probably caused by a defective ccd sensor not working properly, or seized motor. The systems control board is tied with the ccd circuitry and constantly makes any correction through a small motor, if one of these fail it can cause a variety of symptoms. Since the camera is three months old it should be returned for repair or exchange.

There is no relation between the two incidents that you explained. The recent problem might have occurred due to damaging of the lens. MY solution is to replace the objective lens ( lens assembly) and the motor ( if needed ). If it costs much, then go for a new one, since digital camera with high pixels rates are available cheaply now a days.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Hey SandyG1019,
If you just purchased this camera 2 weeks ago it might still be within the retailers return/exchange period, and I would suggest you just exchange it for a new one. This error message should mean that something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand), but could also be do to a problem with the lens mechanism itself. If you choose to try and resolve the problem you could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. This being said I would suggest instead having the camera looked at by an authorized service technician since the camera is most likely covered under a manufacturers’ warranty, and the repair would most likely be free. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Dont know if this will help anyone. I had a lens error for ages. In my long lasting devotion to google serk I found that many equall contenders found that a strike with a soft book in different directiions solved the problem. I ended up beating the camera from all angles with the palm of my hand. But hey! it worked. 4 months later im looking for the cure to system error 2. If you can help wi that one.
