Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

The lens is stuck 1/2 way out and I am unable to access the menu and have taken the batteries out and even replaced them.


Answers :

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Black Screen Bought wife L18 last Xmas. Used once since. Turn it on and lens comes out, but screen is nearly completely black. Menu items barely readable if not viewed under bright light. "Reset ALL" at Setup does nothing. Replaced batteries 3 times, and have taken batteries out of camera for several weeks. No change. Cannot see on-screen image even in bright sunllight.

Fugi Z10 I managed to insert the battery in the wrong direction and is stuck now. Is there a straight forward way to remove or is a job for a specialist?

The battery on my Casio EX-Z1000, even the newly replaced one, drains completely in a couple of days with the camera not in use. Is there a way to save the battery charge while the camera is ''idle'' other than just removing the battery (assuming that will even help - haven't tried that yet)?

Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line. I assumed it was a third party Battery problem, as there was a Impact battery being used primarily at the time. However replacing the Battery with a pentax battery didn't change anything. Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures.

Turned my fuji finepix camera on today and the screen remains white and I get no image of the scene in view. The batteries are fine and all the remaining functions such as menu items all work fine. The camera sounds exactly normal when it starts up but there is simply no image on either version of the viewfinder. Have replaced batteries and taken memory card out and in again.any help available please. Thanks


The iris may have stuck closed due to moisture or the CCD may be bad. Let it dry out for about a day if the iris is stuck. If you still can't get an image, then more likely the CCD is bad - take it in for repair. ... Fuji FinePix S5500 Digital Camera
