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 and prompt answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

I cant see throu my camara dontknow what happend to my lens


It is not the lens. The condition is the aperture will not function as a result of the main circuit board malfunction. Check the polarization of the power supply battery and cell strength.

Lens stuck and I cant get the camera turned on. I have a nikon coolpix s4100


Low battery voltage left the lens in a position that the electronic circuit can not resume the next operation. Its a typical Nikon digital camera problem. The tolerance on the lens barrel maybe too tight. The solution maybe replace the lens assembly.

Hello, I just brought my sigma macro 105mm lens and Im having trouble getting it to work probably on my nikon d90, they only way I can get it to work is turn the aperture on the lens to f32 I cant change...


Turn the aperture ring to f/32 and leave it there. After that, forget the lens has an aperture ring at all. You can let the camera control the aperture in any mode except the M and A modes. In the M and A modes, you control the aperture by turning the command dial on the front of the camera, the same way you control the aperture on a lens without an aperture ring.

if its brand new, then you can replace the lens array for free of service charges in the case you have all the documents. it generally happens if you have dropped the camera.

Aperture cant be changed on manual mode


Maybe a lens problem. Try to re-seat the lens and play with the Aperture test button on the right side of the camera (near your right finger)

Lens error


i had the same problem....my problem was the lens was pushed forward and the third zoom was pushed back. so the lens is blocking the cover(thing that covers the lens) so push the lens back carefully with a cottom swab and pull the third zoomer thingy out.

Nikon lens 18--55mm stuck


Dropping is the most common cause or a knock whilst whilst the lens is out.
Dirt ingress is another possibilty.
It is almost always physical damage - or a low battery.
There is- as always this out of warranty items of this class no repair opportunity

Hi i have f80 camera film and the lense it doesnt work,cose it fall dawn,so how can i fixe it or if u have one to buy it how much the cost for that ?thank you


Your question is in the title so I cant see your whole question. so I hope this helps.
Im going to guess your lens is not Auto Focusing?
Then First I would make sure the switch on th side is set af for auto focus. then I would check the connection. take the lens off and then reconnect it and make sure you feel or hear it click. if that doesnt work try changing the batteries even if the battery meter says they are good. Sometime the battery meter will get stuck.


I hope that was you question.
If not then contact me and I will answer your other question,
