Question about Nikon Coolpix 2000 Digital Camera

Lens defect: stays out of the camerabody

Since 2004 I make digital pictures without any problems with a Nikon Coolpix 2000 camera. Now for the first time a problem: the lens-system won't turn back into the camera. Error message in screen.
Battery power is ok.
I openened the camera (many very tiny screws). Can't find a problem at first look.
Not possible to set motion in lens-system.

Is it possible the motor/driver is defect?

Would like to fix it, don't like the idea of "having to say goodby" to this camera.
Who can help me with tips of instructions how to fix this problem?

Finaly my husband managed to repair the lens.
By opening the lens, 4 screws at the bottom of the lens.
Inside the lens at first side everything looked fine.
By second look (my excuses for this bad English.....) a cog-wheel at the outer circle of the lens-system had shifted a few mm to the right. By that blocking the cog-wheel system. This was once noticed, easy to repair.
The camera must have been fallen the other day, otherwise I can't explain this mechanical failure.
We also foud a very small metal spring in the lens, loose. And we coudn't find the place where it should have been, where it must have been functioning?
At this moment the camera seems to work, but maybe not for a long time.
So after this 'excersise' I decided it's time for a new digital camera. The prices are better now than in 2004. For less money (despite inflation......) you buy a much better camera now.

The lens does not stay open long enough to pose picture. It closes.


These camera's will do that when the battery is very low sometimes.
I'm not sure that is your problem due to lack of more details, but it is a possibility.

Nikon coolpix s70 has blurry pictures even after resetting to default settings. Camera has not been damaged or dropped.


Hi you have lens unit defective. Even if you didn't damaged and dropped, its appearance problem is the lens unit, you can bring to your local repair shop. It is quite easy problem. some point they could save part, but time is money. they would want to change the part. your part from nikon usa is very expensive, but from ebay it is very cheap. It is used but it would be reliable in most case. http://cgi.ebay.com/Camera-LENS-ZOOM-UNIT-Nikon-Coolpix-S70-BLACK-/180672085419?pt=Digital_Camera_Accessories&hash=item2a10e53dab#ht_500wt_1156 If you buy and bring it with camera to your local repair shop, they would charge less labor then you bring camera only. repair shop would consider that you know what it is going on. Thanks and kindly! ( labor they would charge around $25 to 75 depend on what they want to charge)

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.

Nikon 5700 takes a blank picture


There was a line of defective Sony sensors that went into a lot of cameras between 2004 and 2005. As far as I know the 5700 was the primary victim in the Nikon line but Nikon is offering to repair or replace the affected cameras regardless of warranty status. http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html Good luck
