Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 4100 Digital Camera ?

What can I do when I get "Lens Error" on my Nikon4100 coolpix?


Answers :

Check to be sure there isn't an obstruction that is keeping the lens from extending and be sure the battery is fully charged. If you find and clear an obstruction, just turn the camera off and back on and it should be okay. If none of this helps you will have to have a NIkon authorized repair service work on it for you. You can send the camera to Nikon for service or you can look up an authorized dealer in your area.

Lens Error My Coolpix Digital Camera suddenly got stuck with a "lens error" - it seems as though the zoom is stuck. When I turn it on, the zoom goes in & out, then the lens closes down & I get the error message on my digital screen.


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Lens error CoolPix L11. I switch on the camera The lens comes out. A picture is shown for about 1 second. Then the message Lens Error is displayed. The lens is retracted. After 15 seconds or so the camera switches itself off. The camera was bought in USA as a gift for a friend in Sri Lanka. Not so easy to get a local repair - if this is at all possible anyway. What is your advice? Thanks James

Good Day. I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L16 camera onto a table. Since then when i switch the device on the lens goes out about a quarter and the goes back in and i get a lens error message. I noticed that when the lens goes out it bends to the right(looking from the top) and gets stuck by something. When i pull the lens a little to the left while switching it on everything works fine. A very small metal part came out of the camera. Any ideas? is it repairable?
