Coolpix s3300 lense stuck in


Contact the Nikon USA Repair Center at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday, for instructions for obtaining a free estimate for repair. Your camera has damage that you will probably not be able to fix yourself.

Good day, pleas help me. My nikon p7000 turns on without fully opening the lens cover . I have to push back the lamells each time. I am already out of the warranty time. Do you have a suggestion, how to...


Seems like it's a mechanical damage. Since this is an compact camera, I would not reccomend opening it or trying anything it if you can already fix the problem manually and it doesn't affect the photos or anything else.
If you're still concerned about it, you can go to official Nikon service.

Any sand in a compact camera is bad news - repair will be expensive. In your situation, I would continue to use the camera while it still works, and give serious thought to a replacement.

My nikon coolpix s210 shows lens error


Hey digi_5

This is a common problem with Nikon and it isn't covered under warranty since Nikon sees it as an error resulting from usage. Apparently, the Coolpix is pretty delicate and any slight bump can cause a lens error.

Some people have tried gently twisting the camera lens back into place or gently tapping/bumping the side of camera.

If neither of those work, I'd say try getting the camera repaired professionally - if it isn't covered by Nikon, they'll charge you heavily. I've used Teleplan Camera Repair before and they're cheap compared to other places.

I've heard that once the camera is fixed, turn it to the Playback mode before turning it off - it apparently helps avoid the problem altogether.

Nikon Coolpix S5 lens cover won't open


Hi Debscan, My 1.4 year old S5 developed the same problem and after checking out various websites I get the impression that it is a common one to these cameras. I found that if I put the camera on a level table and then turn it on (and off) 3 times the lens cover would open further with each try. On the third turn-on the lens cover would drop fully with a definite "Click" and the camera would work. The next time I shut it off, the lens would not close properly, but the same "Third times the charm" routine would always work. This may only delay the inevidable final crash of the camera, but it might get you a few more pictures out of it.

I dropped my camera and the lens got stuck


I banged mine around several times and tried to force the retractable lens in and out. Neither of these things worked. I finally thought "what the heck it's broken anyway" and used a bobby pin to try to force the outer lens cover off. After applying just slight pressure it unjambed the lens cover and it works fine now.
