Getting lens error, when ever am swith on the camera it is showing lense erros and also traying to open the lense and cloding the cam


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 ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

My cam fell on the floor,and ive seen its lens misaligned.i cant use it anymore ....on screen,,,, it appears LENS ERROR....pls help me,,,im in laguna area,,,and i dont know where to find nikon repair...


Your camera lens is already misaligned, so that Lens Error occur, it will not disappear unless the lens is disassemble, aligned the mechanism of lens ( the proper synchronication of mechanical parts) and assemble.
If you cannot do it, send it to the your nearest camera service center, call them first if they can accept repair on your Nikon Coolpix S210, how much, if repaired how many months will be the warranty.
I hope my advice help you.

Nikon coolpix camera dropped. displays 'lens error' on screen


Hi,

The technically correct solution would be to dis-assemble, clean, re-lubricate and reassemble the lens assembly or better yet, seek repair from a authorized service center or a qualified professional. However, a non-technical workaround maybe possible. This would require thumping the bottom of the camera against the palm of one's hand while powering on. The idea is to jar the lens back into action. Please bear in mind that the opposite could also hold true, the lens would be more stuck.

Another possibility is insufficient power even with new/fresh or fully charged batteries. It maybe that the camera is not receiving sufficient power to engage/retract the lens fully. Possibly, the battery terminals/contacts of the camera has developed a resistive coating of corrosion. Please try:
  • clean the battery contacts of the camera (cotton buds maybe used);
  • it may be necessary to scrape them to expose fresh metal (a nail file would serve the purpose);
  • in some instances, it may even be needed to stretch/bend them a bit (a pair of tweezers could do the job).
The idea is to afford these contacts to offer more pressure to the batteries ensuring full power delivery.

If problem persists, you need to call Nikon.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

"lens error" on camera. Camera will not function.


Try helping gently the lens to extend completely, using your fingernails, if the lens still do not extend, then the lens cylinder must be taken apart and remounted, this is a job that must be done at a repair shop.
