Answers :

For this problem try the following:

  • Try removing the memory and the battery
  • \015\012
  • Try using the camera w/o the memory card
  • \015\012
  • If problem still persist call the Tech Number
1800 235 6325 op 12 op 2

Hope this will help

It could be something more serious, or as simple as inserting\015\012fresh/fully charged batteries, but the problem you describe is frequently due to\015\012corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may\015\012require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine\015\012sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery\015\012compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the\015\012batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the\015\012problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell.

Dead battery? I have been searching everywhere for help on this problem and so far, no luck! My camera will turn on but as soon as it does, it shuts itself off again. The lens is stuck in zoom mode and won't retract. I tried charging the battery but every time I try, it will only charge for about 5 minutes and then says the charge is full. Is this a problem with the battery? Charger? Or is the battery fine and it's a problem with the camera? Any suggestions?

Or it will work for about to minutes before blinking out without even closing the aperture and zoom lens. I have tried charging the existing batteries and i've bought new ones and madesure they a fully charged. I get the same problem... Can anyone help me, or can you tell me what's wrong with it???

Check the contacts and clean them if necessary. If that does not help, try a different BRAND of batteries and see if the issue persists. If it does, it could be a problem with the power board, which calls for servicing.. ... Digital Cameras

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down.

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

Hp945lens When I fix a wide angle lens to my camera and switch it on, the zoom tries to come out, fails and then turns the camera off.
