Nikon Coolpix L14

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and since Friday it keeps making noise & says Lens error on the LCD screen. I have tried doing what the Nikon website says by putting in new battery's but the problem is still happening.I am currently in Exmouth Western Australia and the nearest Nikon service centre is in Perth. I am heading up2 Darwin then doing a 10 day trip from Alice Springs to Melbourne via Adelaide. Do you know any quick solutions to fix the camera?

    Same problem. Power and and lens comes in and out but never focuses. Then get "lens error" message and nowhere to go from there but to power it off. Have removed batteries and plugged into harddrive. I was able to download my most recent pics but then got "lens error" again.

Not without opening her up, What sort of noise? clicking or grinding.

If grinding its likely you have contaminated the lens with something, maybe dust or grit.

If its clicking then its most likely the lens has taken a hit and damaged a gear

Either way any change in noise from a lens isn't a good sign, sorry
If taking pictures is important on this trip I would certainly recommend getting this one attended to or finding a backup
best of luck

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and all of a sudden, when I turn it on, the lens moves in and out while making a strange noise until a "Lens Error" message comes on the screen. I tried replacing the batteries,...


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.
