Lens error CoolPix L11. I switch on the camera The lens comes out. A picture is shown for about 1 second. Then the message Lens Error is displayed. The lens is retracted. After 15 seconds or so the camera switches itself off. The camera was bought in USA as a gift for a friend in Sri Lanka. Not so easy to get a local repair - if this is at all possible anyway. What is your advice? Thanks James

hello,

make sure when you press the round selection button on the back of the camera flash option, you press the ok in the center of the button on the back.

it will show brief yellow AUTO in the LCD screen upper right corner for a sec.

when you are going to take a picture holding the shutter button half way down, you should see up at the right corner outside of the LCD screen a red led flashing to indicate flash is ready.

one thing to try if this is not working, find the camera reset option in the menu. after doing this you may have to reset the date & time. it will bring the camera back to default settings

on the bad side if these dont work, possible flash circuit may have failed inside the camera.

good luck!

I really advise taking it in to a shop that is authorized to work on Nikons. Even if your really handy. You might hate it later.

Take the 7 screws out around the edges, place a flat tip screwdriver between the battery door and the case, pry the case apart just enough to get the pin out the side using a pair of needle nose pliers, remove the old door and put the new one in place and reinstall the pin, squeeze the case together and reinstall the screws.

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

L18 lens error


From Nikon site...

Why does my camera show "lens error" on the screen?

Having a "Lens error" message display on the camera's LCD display indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. This situation generally requires that the camera be sent to a Nikon Service Department for repair. Before doing this however, be sure to check these situations below:

One possible reason for this error is if the camera is switched on and the lens unit is prevented from extending. The camera will struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the problem. Inspect the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the camera off, then on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off then On again is enough to correct this problem.
Remove and recharge the battery. Retest.

If this does not help, then we regret the camera must be sent to our Nikon Service department as there are no user serviceable parts on Nikon Coolpix cameras.

Additionally, this link could helpfull: fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Hope helps (remember to rate and commet this answer).

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.

Coolpix lens opens retracts opens then closes again and lens error appears


Hello

When you turn the camera on the lens comes out and has parameters when extending to focus, if the lens does not open fully it sees a problem and then closes.

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase

Lens stuck


I just wrote a warning about these "telescoping lens" cameras, You need to get the lens back on track. maybe steady pressure, applied to the back of the camera with the lens on a towel on a table to ensure it remains parallel to the camera body.

Hellp?!


How old is your camera? Is it still under warranty?

From everything i have read, the "Lense Error" is a common defect in these cameras.
Hopefully you will be able to return it and have it repaired for free for you.

Sorry i couldn't be more of a help.
Good Luck.
