Re: nikon coolpix L11
I really wish their was a solution for you that was easy. I am a repair company that fixes these all the time. Here is the sistuation once the case is removed you have to make sure you watch out for a 330 volt compasitor that can shock you. after that it requires you to desolider about 15 soilder joints and wires to take off the back main board after about a hour of doing this you will have to install a new lens and reverse the process. If you feal you want to still do this than I wish you good luck If you want a repair center to do this I charge 60.00 for this service and can have it fixed in a week of getting it. I hope this helps you make a choice on what todo. if I can help any further goto www.digitalcamrepair.com

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
Unfortunately optical part of the digital cameras are very sensitive to shock. Some more shock may allow your camera to start working again or make it worse. These devices usually don't worth repairing such major defect. I suggest you look in to obtaining another camera.
It is a pretty major problem for the Coolpix it seems. The internal
coupling of the zoom lens is somewhat fragile, and a slight tap at the
wrong time can mess up the system. It could have been something as
small as a bump while it was being carried in your pocket. The problem
is that you'll have to pay for repairs on it since technically it's not
a camera error but something that Nikon says happened during usage.
owners seem to have been able to solve the problem with a gentle bump
to the side of the camera, or some gentle twisting on the lens itself.
I don't necessarily recommend that- or, at least I would call Nikon
first and see what they have to say about cost of repairs. Other people
say that once you do get it fixed, put the camera in Playback mode
before you switch it off so that the problem doesn't happen again.
