Lens error. lens is currently retracted. will not open. nikon s8100 bought xmas 2010.


Had issue with lens stuck and not retracting on nikon s8100. first removed battery. then manually (gently) rotated lens counterclockwise until lens seated in fully retracted position. inserted battery, turned camera on and camera operational again. I suspect that root cause of lens jamming was turning off camera while simultaneously moving zoom lever

Digital zoom error on an A600, lenz will not retract either


Have you tried spraying a can of compressed air into the lens assembly? All it takes is small piece of debris like a grain of sand to jam up the assembly.

Hope this helps

Lens will not retract


With Battery out try to pull the lens towards outside
Do that gently do Don't rip it off !!!
Probably you will hear a click sound and If you do,
than put the battery back turn on and you should be fine
Every case is different so of the lens is jammed this will help
If the lens assembly is damaged than the only way is to sell the rest of the camera for parts.

Lens retracts with difficulty


1. Do you have a camera case?
2. Or do you not?

The dust fibers from the case might have gotten into the cracks of the lens causing it to jam. So everytime it retracts, it jams. That's what i'm guessing. My old camera got jammed from sand grains on the beach.


- Take a thin strip of paper, and insert it in the cracks of the lens and circle around the lens and find any dust or anything. The paper slip should come out a bit dirty if that's the issue.

- Gently nudge the lens around, until you hear a click. The lens might have jerked into another position from the inside.

Zoom error


worked on allot of fuji's. first detease, a gear is slipping in the lens retract assembly due to a crack or wear or jam

2nd guest .. zoom errors means its really stuck tight

the gears can be ordered and replaced and one more possibility is that the motor that drives the gear is bad
Also if dropped or zoom lens jammed hard... lens assembly needs total realignment or replacing..

Lens jammed


It sound like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

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.,

Zoom lens jammed


this is a protection mechanism against further damage when the zoom/lens mechanism is obstructed. It's a very delicate mechanism, and it's not easy or cheap to fix. The gears probably got misaligned or broken when you dropped the camera. You should get a repair estimate, and only if you decide you'd rather trash it try opening it up again. Good luck
