Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera ?

Focus error Hi, I have a Nikon Coolpix L3 showing on display "errore obiettivo" (focus error)...what can I do? Thanks



Answers :

The lens is having a problem in the track. That can be similar and possibly the same as lens error. that could be caused by dirt or sand inside the camera. What happens is that the dirt or sand can get on the track which has oil or other lubricant and will cause problems with focus and other lens errors.

See my posts on these problems.

You may try to pull the lens as it starts and then push it as you turn it off.
This may also cause more damage, but can be worth a try.
