Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

My coolpix L18 when i turn it on it says that the memory card is write protected how do i get that to stop and get my camera working again?

Answers :

Your card has the write protect switch turned on so you can not write data to it. Take the card out of the camera and when looking at the front of the card (label side) there is a small switch, make sure it is in the up position.

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?!

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse.

Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh
