Question about Nikon COOLPIX L2 Digital Camera

Lens I dropped my camera and the lens wont open or close and it says lens error. Please help! :)

    Had exactly same problem on 2 different L2's. Took first one back to shop where I bought it, they refunded me as they didn't have another one the same to replace it. I went and bought another one online, now the same thing has happened on this second one. Funny thing is, it started coming up lens error, and I thought it was kaput, but then one day I was messing with it and it just started working again. My wife took it on vacation, took 98 pix with it before it started coming up lens error again. Seems pretty sensitive to me. Probably a design weakness. Shame, because otherwise it's a fine camera. I won't be replacing it with another Nikon after this experience.

    Yes me too! I dropped my camera and now the lens is open and it won't move. I took the batteries out and put them back in and then the camera started making this awful noise and said lens error after a few secs. This has happened before with my sister's camera (same one) but it always went back in after a few secs. My camera has been broken for approx 3 days now...help!

Hi, Nikon L series is so delicate that repairing is hardly possible so you have to take it to nikon shop where it can be replaced by new one. I dont think anyone can help you either than Nikon. good luck...

I dropped my camera and now the lens wont close. Everytime I turn it on it says "lens error 111,0,0,28. PLEASE HELP!!!!

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 ... 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:

Hi,
Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work but in your case the lens is stuck inside, or it will have been damaged . Nothing can be done other than taking to service center to get it repaired .

Camera lens wont open or close after being dropped. it won't turn on and take pictures

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Lens wont close.

A lens error on these can happen after a drop as you said had happened. It's best to have it go into a service center, they can service the camera and replace the broken part and have you your camera working perfectly again. The one that many people go with for the Canon Powershots is: www.camerasandparts.com They are not much at all and they do excellent work. They're about half the price of what Canon wants and they include all of the service, parts and everything else. If you need help with it, they'd be the place. Good luck with the problem.
