Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
There are tiny magnets connected to a ribbon cable, that control the focusing lens. It is possible that it has come slightly ajar, or loose. You can reseat these, but you have to disassemble the camera to do it. The other possibility is that there is a problem with the focusing mechanism (infrared mostly). If the sensor is bad, you have a major repair. Sometimes the ring that the magnets "sit" in can become stuck. In this case, you can try to give the camera a slight tap with the palm of the hand, hoping to free it up. Some people recommend laying the camera on it's back on a towel, and gently hitting the usb compartment, or other surface without switches, to try to free the focusing ring. Here is a web blog about stuck lenses, but some suggestions will possibly help you. This fellow has a lot more expertise than myself:
Oh, if you do elect to have it repaired in case everything else fails, make sure you get an estimate first. These repairs can run more than new cameras on sale. Good luck, hope this helps!
