Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
Hi, the chances are the motor that operates the lense has quit working or it could just be stuck with some grit, what you can try is this.
if you get hold of the biggest part of the lense and try turning it slightly now not the furthest part out as this just moves in and out but if you try turning the piece that is closest to the camera it may just free it up, try turning it whilst turning the camera on and off you only need to get it to turn slightly and this should free it up. or you could try pushing the furthest part of the lense in or pull it out slightly doing this may free it up also.
you may need to use slight force when trying to turn the part nearest the camera, but if after trying both of these methods it still dont work then this would point towards the motor failing and the only option would be to have the motor replaced, how ever the cost of repair would more than likely cost as much as the camera so you would need to shop around and check if the part was worth getting repaired or not.

If it is a new[ish] purchase send it back via the seller. It may be an issue with the particular model. Get onto Pentax Tech support Team- See what happens- if it is an issue then a replacement free or at moderate cost may be available. If the camera is older -there will be no economic repair option.

I have the exact problem. I came on slowly, some days it would work, some days it wouldnt. Finally i couldnt get it working at all. Sent it back to Kodak as it was still under warranty, the repair center claims it was "physical damage". They admit that the camera shows no evidence of falling or banging but it doesnt matter. The camera was lightly used only by my wife, she took good care of it. I'm currently fighting with Kodak, they are requesting photos from the repair center, so they claim. I think its lost cause, but we'll see.

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

There is a major technical fault in the design of Canon cameras. Canon refuse to fix the problem under warranty and are forcing consumers to pay for expensive lens repairs.
