Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
My camera was working fine until the other night; now every time I turn it on, it says it makes odd noises, and the lens goes in and out (it sounds like it's stuck on something possibly) and after a few seconds of that- it says "lens error". Are there any simple solutions to fixing this problem myself? Or will I have to send it away?

no solution. if you have a warranty, use it. same exact thing with my camera except my screen is blank. use the warranty & send it in. if no warranty, you'll have to ask whoever you bought it from if they can fix it & how much. if not, money=new camera!

I purchased my Canon SD 1000 a couple months ago and as soon as I owned it one month I had lens problems. Stuck shut stuck open and now its still stuck open. I take care of my camera and carry it in a case all the time. This is my second rodeo and there wont be a 3rd,
CANON IS DONE GETTING MY MONEY

SOURCE: Nikon S200 Lens stuck inside
I had the same issue with my S210, so after reading other people's advice to send it in to Nikon and since that was going to probably cost me as much as the camera itself I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a little something. The lens on mine was a hair off center or had been pushed in on one side (barely - looking at yours you may be able to tell which side) - mine was in my purse also. So, I took my handy dandy skinny prying instrument (normal kitchen butter knife) took the battery out to make it try to open again, then when I popped the battery in as the lens tried to push out I pried the side I thought was a little lower back towards center...I heard a little pop and it worked! The lens came all of the way out and it's all good.
So, use gentle hands and try if you want, but don't think I warranty this!

No, even if you could find a lens for free this is not an easy camera to replace the lens on. Even a qualified tech would take up to an hour to replace. Understand that today's cameras low cost makes replacing the camera a better option than repairing a camera who's value used is less than the repair cost.
