Re: nikon lens 18-70
There must be dirt or grime in the lens rotator. You'll want to get it professionally cleaned or if you are comfortable with doing it yourself, you can use a very small amount of air, but be careful as the air can emit water because of the high pressure can or air compressor used. All the equipment needs to be carefully tended to.
Opening the lens and cleaning it is really out of the question, once the seals are broken, the lenses are now mis-aligned.

When a lens got stuck, by whatever reason, the camera shuts down to prevent further damage to the lens construction. If you can't move the lens at all. PLEASE DON'T APPLAY ANY FORCE TO THE LENS, just feel, try to find out what is holding the lens. If you can't see anything, the defect can be on the inside. This can't be changed easy. I don't believe in shock therapy, because you could help the lens to move once, but when something is wrong, it will happen again and the damage will add up.
But perhaps your camera is not turning on and that is why the lens does not move?
Did you try recharging the battery? And check if the battery has enough power?
Try that first.
The gear that moves the lens is stuck or jammed. Do not force! You'll need to disassemble the camera in order to reset the gears. A gear may have been broken as well. If you force the lens, you can multiply the problem further.
Thanks for using FixYa. With the
camera closed and off point it straight up (lens towards the ceiling) and hit
the power button while holding down the shutter release. When the camera
opened, it immediately tried to focus for the picture it was told to take, and
apparently it forced the lens to move.
also try blowing compressed air around the lens cover to clean it. Now slide a
thin strip of paper between the lens cover shutters and the outer support ring
and move it around 360 degrees. This will clear the debris stuck there. With the
lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil
while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. Repeat
these steps several times to resolve the issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
Lens is stuck!... Possible some dust won't let the zoom to move.
Hold upsite down the lens and very softly tapped around.but do not force the lens. then try to turn on in same condition. If did not worked
try to oposite , Show lens optic to up to sky and try again.
If did not moved you need techguy to remove and clean the lens base from dust and lubricated again.
Hey Joy_2008, A lens error usually means something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand). You could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. You could also try placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up. While holding the shutter button in turn on the camera. What this sometimes does is force the lens to move before the camera shuts down, and when the lens moves hopefully it will dislodge whatever is stuck. If none of this works I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
