Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

user guide above. OK try a reset with your camera, remove the batteries, and leave out for a while reinsert batteries, and see if that has reset the "Fault". Use the manual above, to work through the troubleshooting, procedures.

Card Error


Are you getting this error with the card?

If so, insert the card into the computer. Make sure you get all the files off before you continue. Then go to my computer, right click on the drive, click properties, click the tools tab and click check now. Just do Automatically fix file system errors and click start. This should successfully find errors if present on the card and fix it. You may lose a picture or two if you don't transfer all of them first. Or you could format the card by right clicking on the card drive and clicking format.

If you get the error on the camera without the card in it, turn it on and click mode button twice to get to the picture display (it should be a black screen with "memory error" on top). Then press menu and use the 4-way button to go to the right for Setup. Then use the 4-way button to go down to format to format the camera.

This should fix it.

System error


Check for bent pins in the card compartment - put a flashlight into it and check to see if there are any out of line. Next get another SD card that you know is good. Take batteries out of the camera for an hour, put the new card in and turn the camera on. If it doesn't work do the same just don't put a card in. If you were sharing card between cameras I'd recommend REFORMATING the card in the camera it's to be used in, before trying to take pix. I would format the card on your Computer and again in your camera BEFORE you use it and it should be fine. Your card can get corrupted if you interupt the camera when it's trying to write to the card. Corrupted card can be fixed by formating (on PC) but remember formating erases data. There is specialist software availalbe to recover/repair corrupted cards of all types. Do a search on google/yahoo/ask.com Be sure your dials are set at a detent. Not between letters. Take out the battery, wait a few days then put it in. If you can go to the menus and look for the reset and do the reset. Be sure you have a good compatible card in it and if nothing stops the error message look up Nikon service and arrange to send it in to be fixed. They also clean the camera and load the latest software when they fix it. I guess you do not have a warranty?
