Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L4 Digital Camera ?

Lens error My coolpix L4 was working perfect. Then, I went to turn it on and it said "Lens Error" on the screen. None of the buttons will function and the lens is frozen out. When I turn it off, the screen goes black and the lens remains in the out position. I tried replacing the batteries and cleaning the lens with a soft cloth, but it didn't help. Can you tell me how to fix it? Thank you!

My Nikon coolpix S10 camera was dropped and now the screen only says "lens error". If it is not touched the function returns to normal (has done so twice), but now the screen only say that one message and you can't turn it off or do anything). When it was turned off again and then turned on after a series of clicking noise the screen only said "lens error" and does not allow any other options(even turning off). Any helpful ideas would be apprecited. Thank you!

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and all of a sudden, when I turn it on, the lens moves in and out while making a strange noise until a "Lens Error" message comes on the screen.

I really don't think it is a conde

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen.

Zoom Error While taking a picture of my daughter at Disneyland, I accidently dropped my camera, while in picture mode. It must have been about a 3 foot fall. It landed on the extended lense causing it to disalign itself. I attempted to push lens back into it's proper alignment. Now that I turn on the camera, I automatically get a "Zoom Error" fault in the LCD screen. Is it possible for me to fix it or what do you suggest? Thank you for your time and efforts.....
