Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

My lense on my L18 Coolpix will not close all the way.


Answers :

SOUNDS like the lens cover is bent or has some debris in it that will not allow it to close. Try blowing compressed air (Walmart) into the lens cover to see if it will dislodge anything that may be in there. Other than that you may have to live with it... Good luck, I hope that will fix it for you!
