Lense wont retract - Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera


Answers :

Review this; the methods are listed in the order of risk ofdamaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order.And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and 7) shouldonly be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost ofrepair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered fordisposal if unrepaired: \015\012
\015\012Fix #1:Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a freshset of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah orbetter) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing andholding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on. \015\012
Fix #2:Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install newbatteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it meansyou don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in thememory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3:Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on.Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains offduring the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to thecamera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful inovercoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If theAV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping thiscable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provideextra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping thecable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port whiletapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

Fix #4:Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling.Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press thepower-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocuswhile the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guidepins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressedair in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing outany sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Othervariations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, orsucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

\015\012Nowwe're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera inconducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take carewhen conducting the following two fixes.\015\012
Fix #6:Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with theintent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Othervariations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm ofyour hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method.HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodginginternal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables,or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcingthe lens. More people have reported success with this method than withany of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential fordamaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gentlypulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting thepower button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it'scrooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gapsaround the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrelthat has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way inis NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any ofthe above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guidepins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click,immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustratesunseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.
