The zoom / focus lens mechanism has come off track and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com .

How can I keep the picture sharp when zooming in macro


When you zoom in macro with a Coolpix camera, you must change the camera to subject distance to compensate because as you zoom in and out, the depth of focus of the lens changes dramatically.

When i zoom in the picture is all fuzzy


digital zoom is different from optical zoom. when using digital zoom, you have to keep the camera very, very, very still. may even have to use a tripod.

Out of focus especially noticeable in digital zoom


Digital zoom only enlarges the pixels causing the picture to become fuzzy. Don't use it. Only use optical zoom.

Can't take pictures.


try zooming in on a object and see it it get clearer. the problem is your zoom lens motor is stuck or malfunctioning. This is a very common problem with digital cameras. sometimes you can take compressed air and blow around the lens and clear the blockage or lightly tap the camera lens down with it off to free up the focus gear. if it does now work it then needs tobe serviced or repaired. I had the same model last week for the same problem. That lens had tobe replaced. but try that first and see if it helps.

Fuzzy/out of focus pictures


This may sound kind of obvious, but have you cleaned the lens?

It's common to get finger prints or other marks on lenses, which result in blurred pics.

Losing focus


Usually this is a back focus problem; also called a flange back adjustment.  If the back focus adjustment is possible on this camera, zoom out wide - open iris all the way - and adjust focus and lock position.
