Nikon Coolpix P4 Lense Error

When I turn it on the lense will not come out and I get the message lense errror on the screen. You can hear the motor trying to engage but it's like the lense is stuck. What can I do?
Thanks,
JOe

    I have had my P4 for about 2 years. It's a little workhorse and I love it. Over the past 2 weeks I have been getting Lens Error messages and now the lens will not open. I hear a soft clicking sound, too. It seems like it's stuck closed or the mechanism that opens the lens is broken. I'm going to find someone to see if it can be fixed. If the cost is unreasonable then I'll have to buy another camera.

Yeah that's a pretty catastrophic error. Go to a local photographer, they might be able to help fix.

Battery is good but when I turn it on it just clicks won't start,maybe after 20 times it starts


Without hearing the sound it makes - it's kind of hard to diagnose.

The engine starting process consists of turning the key to start, the starter motor's rotor moving forward to engage the engine's flywheel, and then the starter motor 's "rotor" spinning until you move the key from "start" to "run". You can hear the starter motor spinning - but one usually can't hear the rotor moving forward to engage the flywheel. As a result, you hear the odd spinning sound - which is the starter rotor spinning. The engine never actually turns over because the rotor never engages the fly wheel. If this is the case, then it is very likely that your starter needs to be checked and / or replaced.

Good luck!

I get an "F5E1" code when I try the have selfclean


4Hello and sorry to hear about your problem.

The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cooktop. This rod connects to the actual latch mounted behind the oven door. The control board will then monitor a position switch that is actuated by the latch motor cam. As the motor rotates, the latch will engage the door locking it in place just as the cam contacts the switch button. When the switch contacts close, the control turns the latch motor off and starts the cleaning cycle.

I tried to help you, Please help me and rate/vote this response. Thanks and good luck.Hello and sorry to hear about your problem.

My pentax optio s10 does not retact lens


Most likely the small drive gear has skipped a tooth. If you turn the camera on and off you will here a high frequency "buzz" noise which is the small stepper motor trying to move the lense in and out.

If you don't hear this, then the stepper motor may have gone bad.

If you do here the buzz noise, try gently the tapping the extended lense on a rigid table top as this may re-align the small gear drive allowing the lense to retract.

I had this happen on mine and it works fine now.

I have the Sony digital camera DSC-T20, when i turn it on, it flashes "E:61:00 STANBY", it has been this way for a little over four months, and it will not focus at all. Any help?


Hi,
We had the same problem, and we fixed it! First, identify that it''s the AF motor drive by A) Turning it on and putting your ears against the camera, then hearing a humming noise for about 5 seconds. B) The error comes up flashing on the screen: "E:61:00". Okay, so you''ve identified your problem! Next you wanna fix it, right? ;) A) Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface. B) Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time. If that doesnt fix it, try this: A) Turn it on and let the lense go out fully B) See where the lense comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!) Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed! If not, try these steps a few more times. If still nothing, then I suggest phoning Sony, but this DID work for us, so hopefully it''ll work for you :)

Error codes when turned on.


OK!   if it is doing that you need to have it worked on!!!  
DO NOT try to do it yourself!   Mine did that and I called and found out that I had some warranty left.

Error message


*&%[email protected]#%^&*&^% !!"It's working!!!! Turn your camera on and put it near your ear. Did you hear a softly motorized sound in the lenses area and the green LED is flashing? If you hear this sound do this. Do it under your own responsability. (any way your camera does not work). When you turn on the camera wait until the lenses come out, in that moment grab the lens with your hand and don't let it go back. The camera will turn off but the lens will stay out. With the camera off push in the lens with your hand. Turn on the camera and that's it. I had to do it 2 times, but now my camera it's working again. This system error could be caused because the lens get out of it rail and the camera can not set the focus system.
