Nikon Coolpix camera help

\015 I dropped it and now it makes a weird sound when I turn it on. and it goes to lens error!help please\015

Answers :

Hi:
Broken lens.
Try to force the lens gently out or in as you turn it on. This may help, and it may damage the lens even more. However, I have fixed a couple lenses which had problems as you mentioned.
If you use the wrist strap (that is what it is for to protect your camera) it will save a lot of problems.
Take care with the camera, it will last a lot longer.

If it is beyond repair, sell it on a site such as Ebay for parts or as is. At least you can get a few dollars for it.

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop. I've tried different ports, different cables, reinstalled software, reset the camera -- nothing works. Nikon's tech support was not helpful. My PC runs XP, my son's laptop runs Windows 7. The camera worked fine with both then suddenly stopped working. My device manager does not detect the camera at all.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 3.6x. When I plug the cord in the camera to load the pictures into my computer, I then turn on the camera, the camera goes *beep*, the monitor flashes on a second. then goes back off. I've checked the cord connection into my computer and put new batteries in my camera. It has done this before, when I deleted the pictures from my camera. It was something between the scene and playback buttons I think, but I can't seem to straighten it out. Can you help?

I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy
