On my Nikon Coolpix S4000, when power is turned on, the lens extends fully, opens, retracts fully, and then closes automatically. Lens Error then appears. It does not make noises and has not been used...


I had the same problem with a similar Coolpix model. It's an error on the lens mechanism. Maybe you pressed the lens by accident while they were retracting, or something like that... It's really a delicate mechanism. I think you have to send it for a service... Sorry!

When I turn off my CoolPix S6 the lens would close completely. When I turn on my camera the lens is completely open and the screen just says lens cover error.


The lens is damaged and needs to be replaced. Sometimes with use or maybe an accidental hit to the lens can cause a malfunction to the camera resulting in that error. Also if you for example took the camera to the beach, getting something like sand in the camera can jam up the lens and prevent it from fully extending or retracting.

The words "Lens Error" appears on the viewing screen


The lens does not fully extend, that's why it tries again. The lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

I turn on my camera and the lens just opens and shuts then the screen reads lens error


sounds like maybe it's not extending fully, is the lens bent and preventing it from opening all the way?

Lens error message on nikon coolpix L18 I purchased my Nikon L18 Cool Pix camera last September ('08). Last week when I turned it on, the lens extended fully, then retracted fully as I got a "lens error"...


Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

Lens error of camera nikon s700


Buy a new camera im afraid to say. If the lens is not going back into the camera, its more than likely bent.

Tilt the camera up and look at the lens. If its bent, its done. Not covered under warranty.

SOMETIMES, not all the time, you can try and push the lens straight. "Pop it back into place". This may or may not work. But if your camera is not operating, you really dont have much to lose. Average repair cost is more than $120 dollars. Not worth it in some cases.

Will not stay on


Hello,

Will the lens extend when turning on? , can you see any message on the LCD? it is possible there could be a system error or lens error (lens error if jammed all the way in closed position, usually makes the camera shut off right away)

Lens Error on NIkon CoolPix L2


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Nikon coolpix S700 lens cover is stuck / jammed open...... how can I make it better again.


Nikon coolpix S700 lens cover is stuck / jammed open..

A few quick ??'s I need answered first.

I take it your camera is fairly brand new - as in still under warranty? It should be if we are talking about the newest model out.

Was it dropped or jarred hard in any way? Did you force the lens assy to retract into the body for any reason?

Are you sure the Li-ion batt pack is fully charged up and GOOD?

Is the lens assy retracting all the way inside the camera body first of all?

Does the lens assy fully extend when first turned on?

If all the above ??'s prove out to be normal or proper as to being nothing you did wrong to the camera, and if the camera is indeed under full factory warranty then your next option is this.

You can try this step first though - but only try it one time - if it doesn't solve the problem then follow my last recommendation.

With the camera turned off and while holding the camera "firmly" in hand - rotate (twist) the camera briskly in a CCW & CW motion as if you were opening a door knob back and forth in a fast motion.

If you hear or feel anything inside making a rattling noise immediately stop or end this procedure as possibly something has broken inside and definitely needs factory repair/replacement.

If you don't hear anything loose or noisy inside do the same thing again while turning ON the camera, but only do a rotate back and forth one time and no more. If that doesn't resolve the binding lens cover slats to close then for sure it is an internal failure and has to be returned for either repair, replacement, or refund depending on where you bought it from.

With camera receipt in hand return it to the camera dealer or outlet store you bought it from - hopefully for a full refund or full replacement camera.

If it is over the store's free replacement period then you may have to take it into a Nikon factory authorized service center for repair. If you bought the extended warranty - like I always do with any camera over $100 - then the repair will be totally free.

I hope this solves the problem.

Best regards,

Frank
