Detach the lens, if the camera works then the problem is with the lens.
For the lens you have to send

Regular batteries die right away should I use only rechargable batteries

There is something wrong with your camera that is causing the batteries to run down quickly.
Using recharage batteries will not fix this problem as they too will run down quickly.
You need to get your camera services/repaired.

If you just purchased this camera you should have a number of options. A lens error usually means that either you are somehow obstructing the physical operation of the lens, or there is something physically wrong with the lens. If you are still within the return/exchange period of the retailer you purchased the camera from you can simply exchange it for a new one, and if you are not then the camera is most likely under Nikons' manufacturer warranty and you should contact Nikon to find out where you need to send it to get it fixed.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

How do I unlock my sd digital camera card

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. Slide it away from the contacts to lock, toward the contacts to unlock. If that doesn't do it, then try cleaning the contacts on both the card and the camera. If that doesn't do it, then there's something wrong with the switch sensor in the camera.

My casio EX-Z85 saying card is locked ive moved the slide on the memory card and its still saying the same whats wrong

There's a small switch on the memory card reader inside the camera which tells the camera that the card is locked. Most likely this switch is broken. You can try to point it with needle or something but I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

The camera says protected card and wont let me take pictures . How to take the protected card off?

depending on the type of card you should see a little slide or something that you can move and in one direction it will say lock or something of that sort and if you slide it away from that position that should fix your problem. good luck!

Can't unlock my camera card on hp photosmart M425

if we are talking about an sd card, on the opposite side to the 'cut' corner is a small piece that slides away from the contacts to lock, slide this away from where it says lock if this is the case, but make sure it wasn't protected to save something important before use, This may have caught on something as you slid the card in, and it's only tiny!
