Re: I have the Nikon Cool Pix 5.0 Megapixel Camera
BTW - I have tried new batteries (both rechargeable and alkaline), reversing the batteries, trying to take a photo, trying to zoom, even hooking it up to my USB to try to download photos. Nothing I have tried works. Does anyone have any ideas.

This is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common
reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair
chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is
commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it
having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera
was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and
tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply
dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera
is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse
then contact Nikon in your country to find out about a free repair. If
the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed
cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose
trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here
and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera
Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically
manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

Fault in the system controller, failure of the auto lens mechanism, I would suggest that you must take help if the following tip does not work.
Remove battery and keep aside. Tap gently on the lens with the palm, replace battery and repeat this to switch on.
Try this out several times to see if a locked mechanism releases.
Hope this works
Hi, When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.
Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

Dont know if this will help anyone. I had a lens error for ages. In my long lasting devotion to google serk I found that many equall contenders found that a strike with a soft book in different directiions solved the problem. I ended up beating the camera from all angles with the palm of my hand. But hey! it worked. 4 months later im looking for the cure to system error 2. If you can help wi that one.
