Question about Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I was working at a kids camp and a little kid accidently dropped my camera and the lens got messed up. I pushed it back in, but now it's jammed. I really need a camera for this summer, but I can't afford to buy a new one.

Try turning it on/off and changing the focus from auto to manual. Perhaps with some fiddling it will get back into the proper place. Otherwise you could bring it to a Best Buy for the Geek Squad who could take a look at it, or bring it to wherever it was purchased. Any electronics store would look at it for you.

Little kids and sewing machines seem to have a natural attraction, which is why my mom taught me to sew on her machine when I was 5. Sometimes it's easier to teach the kid how to do it right than keep the kid from messing with the machine.

When camera is turned on the lens won't open, message comes up lens error will shut down automatically


Was the unit dropped or were any liquids messed onto the lens assembly previously ?
If dropped (particularly if the lens was open) the lens drive mechanism might well have suffered damage.
If liquids, particularly ones containing sugar, were accidently messed onto the lens assembly, then the sugar becomes sticky as the liquid dries, effectively glueing the mechanism in place.

I assume it is a compact camera, these are really difficult to repair, when even possible, thus I suggest you contact the camera's Brand services to find a repair center near your area.

Lens will not open


Try pushing the lens gently inside then side to side. It should zoom right out when turned on. It happened to my S70 coz when my kids played with it dropped it.

Jammed digital zoom lens


For whatever reason, the lens has failed. This can be caused by many things: the lens motor has failed or is stuck, the gears involved in driving the lens have jammed, or, as pointed out previously, the lens itself, a series of tubes which fit into one another has become stuck. You can try GENTLY pressing down on the lens when you first power the camera to see if you can free up the stuck lens. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you are going to have to get the camera serviced.
The clicking sound you're hearing is the lens trying to move itself. Unfortunately, it's probably not going to be fixed by pushing on the lens. You are going to have to get the camera serviced. Sorry!

Did you drop the camera? It seems like the lens mechanics are jammed. Try pulling the lens out of camera very gently with you fingers. Good luck!

"Lens Error", then camera shuts off


There are known issues with the lens on this camera, but it's also only a $100 digital camera. Most of the time if you call customer support they will replace it without question; in my case, after much complaining and moaning they even agreed to do it outside of the warranty. It is a design flaw, they DO KNOW it's an issue, and talking to sales people at stores I believe they get a lot of them back.

Kodak Easy Share C330 lens error 14 and lens error 22


Hello,

I bought two of these on clearance and gave one to my in-laws. She suspected that one of her kids may have dropped the camera or pushed in the lens. I don't remember which lens error number had shown up, but I dis-assembled the camera to find out what the deal was. If I remember correctly, there is a way to manually turn the gears to put he lens back out. I left the lens out and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Fair warning though. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to touch the contacts for the flash EVEN WITH THE BATTERIES OUT!!! God did it hurt like hell... unfortunately it is fairly easy to do and I must have accidentally done it about 4-5 times while messing with it..
