Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera ?

Zoom not working on S210 - Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera


Answers :

I'm afraid this is a known issue with S210. I understand you're also getting "lens error" message on the screen?
Not a lot can be done here.
This is a relatively cheap camera and this issue is particularly painful to fix (and I have a feeling that even if you replace the lens mechanism it will fail again - I've seen this on several S210s). Therefore I would suggest selling the S210 on ebay for spares and getting yourself another camera-preferably not another S210 ;)

Sorry if this isn't much of a help, but from repairman's point of view I can say that it's really not worth the hassle to try and fix this particular camera.
Thanks,
Raf

When I turn on my Nikon coolpix S210, it gives me a lens error prompt. I have read posts on another website and it said everything from hold the lens out by force to turn the lens slightly clockwise while it is out to rap it slightly a few times, to changing battery to taking the camera apart. Short of taking the camera apart, I have tried them all. Nothing works. I just put alot of money into the camera buying extra picture cards, batteries, etc. NOW IT WON'T WORK! And there doesn't s
