Question about Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I tried to put a new memory card into my coolpix s3000, but now it just stays in a weird frozen state with the lens extended. The screen is on, but it's black. I can't turn it on or off. Nothing I do seems to change it. What can I do?

Remove the battery and the camera will shut off. keep the battery off for 12 hours and reinsert back. Remove off the new memory card and switch on with a foramtted memory card.,, maybe the old If the camera resets back to life and functions well then checck if the new memory card has some virrus in the memory, if so scan and delete and format the card.
However if the fault still stays on then you have a fault in the main processor conttroller of the camera which will require extra help.
Hope you take this tip. credit me if this works.

My camera stays in a protective case in my purse when turning my camera on my lens goes out then immeadetely goes back in the screen says lens error then the screen goes black i dont know why and ice tried...


Generally an error like what you are describing means that as the camera is trying to put out the lens, there was an obstruction (if the outside is in good shape then it is internal) and pulls it back in before damaging it further. If you have a local camera store, you can take it there to be looked at, or call the manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty for maintenance.

Thanks,

The lens on my camera is stuck. Whenever I turn it on, the screen just says lens error. How can I fix this?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The following solutions are there by which you may fix the lens error
  • Firstly you can try removing the batteries and replacing it with a new set of fully charge ones
  • If the batteries ran down while you were taking photos with the lens extended, you might also get this error. Remove the the memory card and replace the batteries with a fresh recharged set. Try to power on the unit with the fresh set of batteries while the memory card is removed
  • Connect your camera to your computer using your USB DATA cable which came with the camera. Once the camera gets power in this mode, the screen should stay off, hence, supplying the lens with more power to push or pull out/in
  • Place the camera on a sturdy table with the lens pointing to the ceiling. With a fresh set of batteries installed(Do this without a memory card) hold down the shutter button while you power on the unit
  • Now, you can either use a compressed air canister to blow around the lens area. This will result in the sand or dust particles to be blown out of the area between the lens and the barrel. Or, you can use a vacuum and and carefully place the nozzle around the lens to out the particles
If you have tried all of the above and still you have lens error then it is probably that your Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera is in need of servicing by a service professional.

Any more confusion, queries or for further assistance, I am here to help.
I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

Hello. I want to purchase a nikon coolpix S3000 model camera but my friends told me that this model of nikon has lens problem..so i want to confirm this. plz help me..thank u


I work at an authorized Nikon service center and I don't see many S3000 models coming in for repairs. Most camera point and shoot models that have an extending lens are subject to lens errors. Most of those errors are also a result of shock or impact and not manufacturer's defect. Hope this helps!

Turn camera on, lens comes out, goes back in ,and says lens error.


try these fixes

1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable nimh 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If using rechargeables, and they're more than a year old, consider purchasing new rechargeable batteries as they may not be providing sufficient power to startup the camera. If new batteries didn't work, try pressing and holding the 'Function' or OK button while turning the camera on.

2.If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

3.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots.

4.Insert the cameras audio/video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fix 3 as a means to provide extra power to help to this fix. Reinsert the cable only after tapping the camera.

Your photos will not be affected by this fault. Just take the memory card out of the camera and read it with a card reader attached to the computer.

Unfortunately the camera will probably need an expensive repair, or if that isn't economic, replacement.

Nikon Coolpix 4600 lens extended and won't turn on


Go to store and purchase a memor card reader/writer. It will allow you to put your memory card in it and download the pictures to the computer via the usb port. Make sure the reader/writer is made to accept your type of memory card.
