Lens Error - Camera wont turn on or take photos as the lens wont open. The camera is only 3 weeks old and has taken 300 pics (S8100)

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 ...
Now as the camera is only three weeks old, you need to take it back to the store where you purchased it for exchange or refund. Do not attempt to repair it yourself at this point as it will void your warranty. Which brings up the next step, if the store refuses to help you, contact Nikon for warranty repair.
For others experiencing this problem, who do not have the luxury of warranty options, 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:

Camera lens doesn't open- message turn the power off and on again

Dropping it may have damaged the lens barrel. You probably need service.

Error E45

Turn your camera on and smack the camera against your hand. The E45 error means your lens is stuck. The lens on my V603 was stuck open, when I smacked it against my hand it closed and now works fine. Give that a shot.

Hit the lens (smack it on you're leg); that seems to be the solution..........

Lens barrel wont open

Can't fix it yourself. Contact Kodak or try a good camera repair shop, as they stand the best chance of getting the alignment back in place.

Shutter wont open , and the lens wont come out.This is the first time i dropped the camera , we had it for almost 3 years. I am so mad!!

Nothing for you to do there- obviously the mechanism is damaged- unfortunately there is not a repair option for a camera this old I would imagine. New camera time.

I dropped my digital camera when it was opened and it is jammed open, I had power at first, but then I took the batery out and put it back in and have now power. I cant get it to close. What can I do to...

I have the same problem exactly. After my 3 yr old daughter brought it back to me after she had bounced it off the floor a few times, the lens was half out with the last pic taken on the display. I couldn't do anything so i removed and reinserted the batt and now i have a sticky out lens and no power...
