We have a CoolPix L3 that is not very old nor has it been used (and or misused); perhaps 14 months old. Serial No. 30649827. The telescoping lens has tended to get stuck in a closed position. After installing FRESH new batteries, I gently tapped the camera body against my other hand and the lens opened but continued to move in and out. Sometimes it would stay open but not at its maximum position. Furthermore a message was displayed; LENS ERROR.What do you suggest we do. Is it repairable?

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!
