Lens got stuck..how to make it work - Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera


Answers :

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's\015\012preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your\015\012problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries\015\012or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into\015\012the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean\015\012the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give\015\012them a full\015\012charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 80% of the time. It's also possible that the lens\015\012zooming mechanism is sticking due to a buildup of sand, dust, etc. To\015\012remedy this, try cleaning the area where the lens meets the camera with\015\012canned air. If these solutions don't work for you, it may time to\015\012replace the batteries, or the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

The lens is stuck all the way out...I have tried to do some of the above and while twisting the lens slightly got it to take pictures again, I think it may have done more damage because its still makes a buzzing noise when I turn it on and there is black on a portion of the screen like the cover is partially stuck (inside the camera).

All of a sudden our nikon coolpix P2 digital camera is stating lens error when we turn it on. the opening/closing mechanism will work and open but then after the photo lens thing comes out, it looks around and goes back inside the camera. I've tried to dust it a little with a soft brush, and jiggle it some but to no avail. I'm afraid repairing it will cost more than a new one. This one is 4 years old. Help!
