Question about Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera
The lens has jammed on a friends nikon coolpix l12.
I'm trying to find the srvice manuals for the thing but can't.
Any links would be helpful.. I've got the thing in pieces but cant get the actual lens housing out.
Dear All, Looking at other threads this seems a standard fault for many brands. I know the dreaded 'lens error' is a recognised Nikon fault.
I had the same problem with a Nikon Coolpix L1; lens would shuttle in and out rather woriedly and then get stage fright and freeze, hiding behind a lens error tag.
The solution came from a similar site to this and listed at least ten happy punters who tried it and found it worked, so, brace yerselfs....
Put a paperback book on decent sort of a table and slam the flat base of the camera down onto it as hard as you dare. If you slam and hold firm to the book it seems to give better shock without having to belt the poor thing to hell.
Worked first time for me. Not a cure, though. You'll have to repeat it every few months perhaps.
I suppose your camera may explode during the process; I decided mine was unusable as it was and so I'd nothing to lose.
If you break your wrist change to the other hand and don't slam so hard this time!!!
Before that I found some correlation between battery type, charge and lens function but the book bash was an instant cure.
Do let me know of any success

LENS ERROR IS A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM. SO YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND DON'T OPERATE IT MANUALLY...GO AND SEEK SOME CAMERA ENGINEER FOR THAT.

I have the same problem, first the pictures were blurry. Now I can't take photos as the lens error shuts down the camera. Is there any other digital that does not do this kind of break down. firstname.lastname@example.org

Power on camera then push firmly on shutter lens and it should retract. Worked for me.
