Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Nikon service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy another camera. If you do decide that you have to throw your camera away then don't forget to remove the memory card as it can be used in other devices. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

On the screen it says lens error and then the lens go back in


The lens doesn't get tilted unless it's been abused. That means it was dropped, sat on or stepped on. The warranty doesn't cover anything like that. It would cost money to be fixed. Tell your parents what happened, and tell them you are sorry. Maybe you are too young yet to have a camera. They are delicate things, and you have to treat them very gently. I have had cameras since I was 11 years old, and I have never dropped one or ruined one in any way. Sorry this happened...



THANKS.

Hey fl_dolphin,
This is most likely caused by something obstructing the movement of the lens. You could try blowing compressed air in to the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. This could also be caused by a problem with the lens mechanism. If this is the case most digital cameras come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If the camera is less than a year old the repair would likely be at no cost to you. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Lens Error, Restart


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....

Lens Error Message


Hi there

I had the same problem a year after I bought my camera. I returned it to Nikon and they fixed it and returned it. The problem reoccurred 3 times and each times Nikon repaired it free of charge. Then after a year it went again and, when I returned it to Nikon they sent me a new camera. Within a couple of months the new camera had the same problem. I have since resolved it with new batteries! The original coolpix rechargeable batteries do not seem to recharge properly so when I put ordinary AA batteries in it suddenly worked. Good luck.

Canon PowerShor S3 not functioning


Had my S2 IS now for 3 years , never had a problem with the lens. I'm careful not to bump my lens into anything. I actually bought the lens hood and put a filter on my lens so that no dirt can get into my lens or I can't accidentally bump my lens into anything while i'm using it as it's protected by the adapter and filter.
