Question about Cameras
These cameras frequently observe this exact problem. The internal coupling of the zoom lens is somewhat fragile, and a
slight tap at the wrong time can mess up the system. It could have been
something as small as a bump while it was being carried in your pocket.
The problem is that you'll have to pay for repairs on it since
technically it's not a camera error but something that Nikon says
happened during usage.
Some owners seem to have been able to solve the problem with a gentle bump to the side of the camera, or some gentle twisting on the lens itself. I don't necessarily recommend that- or, at least I would call Nikon first and see what they have to say about cost of repairs. Other people say that once you do get it fixed, put the camera in Playback mode before you switch it off so that the problem doesn't happen again.
Basically since it is new, I assume, then I would just take it back and get a new one.
Let me know what you think about my answer. thanks

If you just purchased this camera you should have a number of options. A lens error usually means that either you are somehow obstructing the physical operation of the lens, or there is something physically wrong with the lens. If you are still within the return/exchange period of the retailer you purchased the camera from you can simply exchange it for a new one, and if you are not then the camera is most likely under Nikons' manufacturer warranty and you should contact Nikon to find out where you need to send it to get it fixed.
Go Ahead. Use Us.
