Question about Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera just stopped working

Hi! I was using the camera one moment (with lens fully extended) and it just turned off. The lens is stuck out. I have not been able to turn it on since. I have tried charging the battery, changing the memory card, plugging into the computer. Nothing seems to work. The LCD screen is black - there is no sign of life at all! I have had this camera since December 2002. Can anyone help or suggest a solution? I have investigated costs of repair and GBP138 seems a lot to pay- probably more than the camera is worth now! Thank you for your help!

    I have 2 different Coolpix cameras that have the same exact problem. I initially thought I got sand IN it, but the same thing happened to the other a few months later. I tried contacting Nikon, but never received a response. Did you ever find a fix for this?

    Same problem yes, was making pictures and camera just stopped with the lens out. Camera is from 2004.

    This happened about 1 year ago, and since then many times we take the camera again, in the hope it might work again, charged battery again and again, but no life since......

How do you fix a stuck lens that will not retract when camera is turned off?


Hello, Remove batteries from camera, try pushing the lens back GENTLY with the palm of your hand, Notice I said "GENTLY" or you will cause more damage than good. If this won't work than take it for service / repair.

Best Regards, Russell

Kodak v803 wont turn on


i had the same problem, if you try to turn the lens in as if you turning a dile, the lens will go back in manually once you have the lens completly in again, as if the camera is switched off, then turn the camera back on at the power button and the camera will operate as normal, this worked for me i hope it works for you too.

Cannon G7 need help


Hi
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?
