I am getting a lens error message on my nikon coolpix L2 Camera


Try cleaning out any grit in the lens barrel with compressed air and wiggling the lens gently. If that doesn't do it, the camera needs servicing.

Nikon s50 lens error


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.

How can i fix a lens error on s610?


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:

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
