Re: lens error nikon coolpix 4300
This error occurs if camera is turned on before lens cap is removed. If you are removing the lens cap before turning the camera on and still getting this message, camera should be serviced by a qualified technician.

It is time to replace that camera. If the sensor is bad it will not take pictures, if the play back does not work it will take picture but no show. If you camera wont do either than it is too far gone for repair and should be replaced.
What does the battery icon show? If it shows an almost depleted battery the camera will only let you take one picture, then disable it from taking any more.
It's possible the battery won't hold a charge, so you should consider testing the camera further using an external charger or getting a new battery.
The Nikon Coolpix 4300 only supports the FAT16 filesystem, so it can only support a 2GB partition. To support 4GB you need a FAT32 filesystem.
Put the card in a CF writer and attached to a PC or Mac. Partition 2x2GB partitions, then format them as FAT16. Now put it into the Coolpix 4300 and it should work.
ouch - - I have a 995 coolpix.
I 'smacked' mine hard from the side, and this relocated the mechanism (I crippled mine by attaching to my roadrace bike - it did not like the vibration) works fine now though.
Would recommend :
1 - dismantle carefully, and you will probably find the mechanism has misaligned
2 - submit to nikon for repair (or other repair house)
3 - I have a 4300 you can buy
sounds like your baby have had a good introduction with something more hard then it....
clicking sound - the delicate mechanism is misplaced(cogs slipping)
nothing to do but hope for warranty
