Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

The lens extension is stuck more than halfway out.

\015 The lens cannot be pushed in or pulled out. Sometimes the "lens error" message has appeared on the screen, but today it is just humming. The only way to turn it off is to take the batteries out. Thanks for your help.\015

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
