Nikon Coolpix camera lense wont retract :(

I have either dropped the camera or it has been bumped, but my lense wont retract, and 'Lens error' appears on my screen. It is leaning to the left. I have gently tried to push it back, but wont budge. Is it worth taking to a camera store to get fixed? Thanks so much....

    I ended up taking my camera to just a normal camera store - and the guy at the counter managed to pop the lense back in but pulling a bit on the side that was lopsided! Works totally fine now :) I was too scared to do it myself, but he was able to do it for me straight away and didnt charge me anything!!!!



    Thanks for your advice.....

You can send the camera directly back to Nikon for an estimate. If you bring it to the store they will add on the cost for their time. Call Nikon to find their nearest service center.

For any problems on these cameras, they will need factory service.

You may find that servicing the camera will be near to the cost of replacing it, unless it is a very expensive model.

The Camera displays lens error only when it's unable to retract or expand. This usually happens when the internal Hardware that controls the lens fails or any dust particle settles around the lens. In this case, just give slight bumps to the Camera against your palm. If the issue persists then service will be required.

Nikon Coolpix 3100 will not turn off or lense retract


Hi,

Try removing the battery from the camera to see if this will force a reset. This may well resolve the problem.

If your problem persists after this please do add a comment and I try to assist further.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Nikon Coolpix L11 Lense Error


Hello that would be "lens error", which means the camera may have been dropped, bumped or possibly a piece of sand/dirt got inside the lens mechanism.

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.
