Hey meghanB,
One thing you could try is placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed upwards and press and hold the shutter button, while doing this turn the camera on. When you do this the camera should try to focus which sometimes will force the lens back on track. If this doesn't work you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out to be looked at. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

S220 Coolpix has a lens error problem, turn camera on tries to focus (Lens moves in and out making a weird noise) but comes up with a lens error problem


Did it drop? sounds like the motor is trying to move the lens as you need, but the lens has come out of its tracking. If there is no outside damage and you still have warranty left, you should get it replaced, otherwise it means opening it to place the lens back on its tracking, but this can be tricky.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Nikon Coolpix L11 Lense Error


Hello that would be "lens error", which means the camera may have been dropped, bumped or possibly a piece of sand/dirt got inside the lens mechanism.

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase.

Lens Error


Check the contacts in the battery case. You can stretch/bend the contacts further out and the problem seems to go away for a while.

"Lens Error", then camera shuts off


There are known issues with the lens on this camera, but it's also only a $100 digital camera. Most of the time if you call customer support they will replace it without question; in my case, after much complaining and moaning they even agreed to do it outside of the warranty. It is a design flaw, they DO KNOW it's an issue, and talking to sales people at stores I believe they get a lot of them back.

Lens stuck


I just wrote a warning about these "telescoping lens" cameras, You need to get the lens back on track. maybe steady pressure, applied to the back of the camera with the lens on a towel on a table to ensure it remains parallel to the camera body.
