I have the same problem with my nikon coolpix s200. After 2 months the lens of my camera won't go inside. On the lcd screen stood lens error. I went to a shop with this problem. He took the battery out of my camera and press the off and on button for a while. Then he put the battery back in the camera and press the on button. The lens of the camera was now going inside en outside and inside and outside with a strange noise. And also on the screen stood lens error. Okey, the lens is inside the camera. But how can I fix this camera? What is the problem? What have you done? Please let know..!!
Try this: Power the camera on then gently push on the lens while hitting the power button again so that it will try to retract the lens. but be gentle as you could damage the camera worse.
if your interested in having it fixed for around 120 or more than dont try anything and just take it to a repair company.
if that doesnt reset the camera then you can try taking the batteries out for a couple day and then put some lithium batteries in it if it takes aa's that is. They have a little higher voltage than some batteries and while sometimes give it a little more push to get things going. Leaving the batteries out would let the camera forget its memory. If you had the camera stored without batteries then don't worry about trying to reset it as that would have already happened.
Let me know how that works or if you need anymore help,
From what you describe the problem could be a couple of different things.
The focus element inside the lens may have come off its track. Heres how to tell:
If the lens shield has closed completely and you can not see down into the lens:
*Does any text come up on the LCD before it turns off? Such as "E18" or "E25"?
If the lens shield has not closed completely and you can see down into the lens:
*When you shake the camera can you see something moving inside the lens?
In either of these cases the problem is that the camera cannot move the lens due to the moving parts being jammed. This will require a repair service to go into the camera and reset the dislodged elements.
In either of these cases the camera will display an error message on the LCD before it powers off. If it does not do this, let me know and I will give you other possible explanations.
