Try manually pulling on lens housing while powering on. if there is a grinding noise the gears are probably missing teeth.

Lens Error - Camera wont turn on or take photos as the lens wont open. The camera is only 3 weeks old and has taken 300 pics (S8100)


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 ...
Now as the camera is only three weeks old, you need to take it back to the store where you purchased it for exchange or refund. Do not attempt to repair it yourself at this point as it will void your warranty. Which brings up the next step, if the store refuses to help you, contact Nikon for warranty repair.
For others experiencing this problem, who do not have the luxury of warranty options, 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:

Lens is stuck (halfway out) and screen shows "lens error" and won't do anything


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may 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.

Which brand of digital camera has the least problems with lens error? I'm looking at the Nikon S8100 and it sure seems like a lot of people are having this problem.


Hi, Overall I'd say Canon has the least number of lens errors I've seen followed by Panasonic then Olympus then Fuji then Nikon and in last place Sony.

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

When I turn on my nikon coolpik p1 the lens doesn't fully open and screen tells me "lens error"


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.
