Lens Stuck My Lens is stuck on my Coolpix S200 and I'm getting the Lens Error message. I tried to push it back in like I read on here and it went partly in and now its completely jammed. I've only had my camera for about 4 months. Please help!! I'm hoping to fix it myself. i dropped my camera and now the lens wont come out. Everytime i turn on the camera it tells me to turn it off then on again. I've done it multiple times and it doesnt work. I tryed to push the lens in and out but it doesnt make a difference. Now it makes a buzzing noise everytime i turn it on and off. How can i repair it myself?

YOU CANNOT REPAIR THIS SOPHISTICATED CAMERA YOURSELF!!
I guess pushing the lens inside may have made the problem worse.
I follow a rule- if you drop an electronic equipment and a problem occurs- it usually takes a professional repair!
For all you kamow there is a minor problem in the camera, like something stuck inside or something like that. and most certainly you will aggravate the problem by trying to do it yourself..

do post when you get it repaired, for all of us to know what goes wrong when lens gets stuck..
take care

Nikon S200 Lens stuck inside


I had the same issue with my S210, so after reading other people's advice to send it in to Nikon and since that was going to probably cost me as much as the camera itself I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a little something. The lens on mine was a hair off center or had been pushed in on one side (barely - looking at yours you may be able to tell which side) - mine was in my purse also. So, I took my handy dandy skinny prying instrument (normal kitchen butter knife) took the battery out to make it try to open again, then when I popped the battery in as the lens tried to push out I pried the side I thought was a little lower back towards center...I heard a little pop and it worked! The lens came all of the way out and it's all good.

So, use gentle hands and try if you want, but don't think I warranty this!

How can i fix a stuck lens on a Nikon COOLPIX L11?


I have the same problem with my nikon coolpix s200. After 2 months the lens of my camera won't go inside. On the lcd screen stood lens error. I went to a shop with this problem. He took the battery out of my camera and press the off and on button for a while. Then he put the battery back in the camera and press the on button. The lens of the camera was now going inside en outside and inside and outside with a strange noise. And also on the screen stood lens error. Okey, the lens is inside the camera. But how can I fix this camera? What is the problem? What have you done? Please let know..!!

same thing happened to me. Honestly you have to push the screen in as a hard as you can, I was afraid this would break it(honestly it is already broken) but it went right in!

Lcd reads system error


Apparently often related to a lens motor malfunction. My old 4300 just gave this error for the first time today. The lens extended but made a whirring noise before the message popped up. Nothing I tried would fix it - but after I drove home it worked fine again.

I had a similar problem over a year ago after the camera fell out of my backpack (it was in its own bag but not well padded). When I used it the lens stuck and refused to retract, but I don't recall a "System Error" message. After a few tries, the lens went in and it's been fine since, until today.

Make sure there's nothing (dust, dirt) stuck in the lens barrels. Otherwise, just keep turning it on and off and hope it works.

Lens error coolpix l6


The lens is probably stuck with a piece of dirt or something jamming it. You could gently try and pull on the lens with a slight turn in each direction to see if you can dislodge the particle.

Some individuals on the internet have felt comfortable enough to try and disassemble the camera to reveal the parts of the lens drive mechanism, clean it and put it back together and this sometimes will help (but that is beyond this response) because there are enough locations on the net that describe this.

Since it's 4 months old, you may want to return it for a replacement.

Other alternatives are:
  1. Carefully use some compressed air around the lens mechanism.
  2. Take the camera back and get a replacement, or
  3. Talk to Nikon and get it serviced.

Hope this helps, if it does, please choose FixYa!

ThankYa!

Lens Error - Cool Pix L6 - Camera unuseable


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.
