Question about Nikon Coolpix P1 Digital Camera
THE COVER IS NOT OPENING
SCREEN IS SHOWING LENS ERROR
Note this happened to my sons camera within 6 weeks of the warranty expiring. I was with him when it happened - he just zoomed in to an object, and the lens became stuck. We were not on the beach, and he did not drop or hit the camera. Nothing works to solve it. The Nikon tech support page says it will normally be fixed if you turn it off and then on; otherwise take the batteries out, recharge or replace them; then take the batteries out and leave them out overnight, trying again the next day. After that, it can only be serviced. This will cost more than it is worth. My solution? Never buy Nikon again, which actually has an effect, because I was just about to replace my camera when this happened, and upgrade to an SLR.

A friend brought me his NIkon coolpix camera s550 with a lens error. He had set it down at night (after drinking) and the next morn it was giving the lens error. His camera was jammed with the lens in the out position. I looked at the lens from the side and you could see the bezel of the lens was not square with the camera body ....the lens had been bumped off the track....with the camera on...I gently persuaded the lens back to square....it clicked then the camera sucked the lens back in...now it works....do at your own discretion...ie warranty etc....and all it cost my buddy was a beer.

She did take the camera to the beach. Is it worth repairing?

Lens errors, must be fixed by a camera repair shop. They are usually caused by impact of the lens with an object or sand from a beach. Repair estimates range from $50 to $100. Get a new camera if it is closer to $100. Suggest a internal zoom lens like the Fuji Z10fd.
