\015 Push "on" button. Camera turns on, lens pops out. Shutter error message appears, lens pops back in. Nikon coolpix L14. Is this possible to repair yourself or is it worth taking it into a repair shop or just throw it away and start over?\015

Answers :

Most of these kinds of errors come as a result of some kind of impact, sand or dirt exposure, possible water damage, or some other problem with the lens.
There is a possibility that the lens is off track.
Try pulling or pushing (not too hard either way) and see if it may be off track and return it to the correct setting.
Since it is not working anyway, try the above a few times and then test the camera to work right.
I have fixed more than one with similar (off track problems) and they worked good after wards.
Worth a try.
If nothing works, I suggest to sell it (include all that you have with the sale) on a site such as Ebay as parts, or as is repair. It should bring something like $20.00 to $50.00. The LCD is worth something over $15.00 alone. The other parts of the camera has value to those who repair cameras.

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message

My camera died with the lens out. then the next day i recharged it but it wasn't turning on. I noticed the lens was bent out so i pushed it in and it went in easily. Now when i press the power button the blue and green light turns on but when i let go of the power button it turns off


Was the camera dropped? Bent lens is not a good sign and possibly needs to be sent in for repair. If the cost is too high to replace (unless they fix them under warranty) than it's time to replace the unit unfortunately. ... Samsung L200 Digital Camera

We bought our Nikon Coolpix 8100 just before Halloween. I was in the middle of taking a picture today - my finger was halfway down on the button to focus it - and the camera went black. The lens is still out and open, as if it was turned on. Pushing the power button doesn't do anything. I plugged it into the charger - the green light blinks periodically. I am unable to get the camera to turn on or off either while it is plugged in or after I unplug it.


What it might need is to remove the power source (battery) for a few seconds 20-30. The camera is a fairly new model so it should also be under warranty. If the camera doesn't begin to operated properly after reinstalling the battery you might want t ... Digital Cameras
