CoolPix L 18 Problem

\015 Hello, I'm Anthony and I have a Nikon Coolpix L18, bought it 2 years ago and i dropped it a few days ago the lens originally didn't come out when the power button was pushed and the LENS ERROR message was on the screen, I removed the Plastic Cover and and reset the gear wheels, the lens now comes out when I press the power button but when i power it off the lens goes most of the way in but the shudder doesn't close and i have to push it in to get the message to reset, when the camera is off the lens doesn't set right and looks bent can this be fixed by removing the inside parts and shifting the lens... Thank You\015

Answers :

It probably can be fixed if you can get to them. Most cameras' lens assemblies are replaced as a unit when they go bad, it's just not cost effective to spend the time to tediously take them apart, repair the problem, and reassemble. You sound pretty mechanically inclined to have fixed the gears, so I would say you could probably pull this off if you try. Good luck, it's not what most people should try at home!

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer. Is it a problem with the cord itself? I've put the memory card which has the pictures into my laptop and transfered them successfully that way, which is why it leads me to believe the cord is the issue.
