SOURCE: Lens is stuck open and making a clicking noise!

It costs more to fix than replace. It's quite asinine. And I wouldn't recommend Nikon again.

SOURCE: Nikon S200 Lens stuck inside

I had the same issue with my S210, so after reading other people's advice to send it in to Nikon and since that was going to probably cost me as much as the camera itself I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a little something. The lens on mine was a hair off center or had been pushed in on one side (barely - looking at yours you may be able to tell which side) - mine was in my purse also. So, I took my handy dandy skinny prying instrument (normal kitchen butter knife) took the battery out to make it try to open again, then when I popped the battery in as the lens tried to push out I pried the side I thought was a little lower back towards center...I heard a little pop and it worked! The lens came all of the way out and it's all good.

So, use gentle hands and try if you want, but don't think I warranty this!

SOURCE: Blurry images (after a lens error)

There is a mechanical displacement in your camera. Definitely, it is not a software problem. Actually Digi Cams are very delicate, especially small ones.... So get it serviced from a authorised service station. They will fix the problem....

SOURCE: my nikon s220 shows lens error and the lens remain

Clicking noises suggest the lens is either knock damaged or jamming because of sand - probably a marginal repair.

SOURCE: my digital camera has a lens error

Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


Fix #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 that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #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 (for older Canon's) 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

My nikon S220 has a lens error makes weird noise and the lens goes in and out 6 times when i turn it on. Help


Lens is probably just stuck, because of debris or misaligned gears. The lens can in about 50% of times be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repair. There are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the part is usually available on ebay.

Nikon s220 lens error


The s220 seems to be very susceptible to lens errors, usually associated with the lens barrel being unaligned. It only takes the slightest bump/drop in many cases. Fixing it is a hit or miss solution. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html Has a good list of possible fixes.

Clicking noise when it turns on and won't focus, lens error also


What you are describing is probably the beginning of a possible lens error. If the camera still operates correctly (the lens extends correctly, you can still take photos that are correctly focused) then there may be sand or dirt in the lens mechanism that will eventually cause a failure. Just as an initial step, get a can of compressed air and blow out the space between the lens barrel and the camera body. If the clicking noises continue and the lens movement is not smooth, it is time to contact Nikon support at the link below

Lens error on Nikon coolpix S202


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Nikon Coolpix S202


My nikon coolpix s210 had a "lens error" after several months of use. The tapping of the camera against my hand did not work. Eventually i did use the method of putting my nail under the lens and pulling as I tried turning the camera on. I had to apply a good amount of force and was afraid i would break the camera, but after doing this several times, the lens did click back into place.
