Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S220 on, it makes a funny sound and the lens tries to focus. It zooms in, and out, trying to focus but stays blurry. It then says 'lens error' and turns off. I have always kept it in a protective case, and have never dropped it. What has happened?


Answers :

From what you said, it shouldn't be a lens problem, but even dust, lint, and sand can cause problems. The focusing ring works with an electromagnetic field, and that attracts particles. You can try to spray compressed air into the lens assembly to free it up, or give it a medium bump with the palm of the hand, while holding the camera with the lens facing up, then down. This following site tells of other possibilities, and might help:
