SOURCE: Zoom error
I had the same problem with mine and I tried several suggestions, BUT the only one that has worked is to gently grab the lens, pull it out as far as it will go until fully extended. While keeping it extended turn the lens to the right until you hear a click. Once you hear the click, release the lens and turn the power button on and then back off again. This should take care of the problem. A word of warning. ALWAYS make sure your fingers do not touch the front of the lens when you power on the camera. Even the slightest bit of obstruction seems to make the problem reoccur. Another note. I had tried this several times until I finally heard the click, so please don't give up on it, just keep trying. This will work and it will save you a lot of time and money having it fixed.

SOURCE: zoom lens won't retract
Usually down to the lens block assy being faulty.Is the lens retracting and opening properly?.It usually turns out to be worn gears in the lens drive assy or the result of a fall.Either way will be expensive repair!My advise is check and see whether camera is covered by insurance for accidental knocks.,

SOURCE: Zoom lens won't retract
The motor mechanism has failed electrically or through damage- taking a knock. Either way nothing for you to do- unless you are a watch maker or good with fine tools. A repair will cost much as a new camera. Try both -a self repair and a new camera. You may get lucky and have two cameras

Don't force it.
Did you get dust or dirt in it?
The only solution is to bring it in for service or send it to Nikon if it is a USA model.
Nikon USA will NOT repair any gray market items.

I have the same problem. The lenses does not retract when turned off or function with the zoom control when turned on. Has anyone found a fix?
