Your camera has a lens error, 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 become 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 the Nikon service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by 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. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

My nikon coolpix s220 have a lens error and when i turn it onthe lens goes in and out like its trying to focus and it makes a wierd noise. it also wont let me do anything it just pops up saying lens error


Try removing the battery/batteries and clean the contacts underneath. Also, clean the battery contacts and the charger, if so equipt. To do this, dampen a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and rub the contacts. Blow into the compartment after to clear any residue.Thanks, Dana

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.

Re Nikon S220 digital camera. Lens error noted -


A tiny bit of grit can jam the gears of the lens. Sometimes a tap can knock it out. Try this at your own risk. Take out the batteries. Don't hit the camera on a hard surface, just use you hand. If it hurts, that is too hard. Try lens down, then all the sides.

Ok ive had my camera for maybe one week its a nikon coolpix s220


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.
