Error message ''Lens error'' on nikon coolpix digital camera


Answers :

Try cleaning any grit out of the lens mechanism with compressed air and a little wiggling of the lens. If that doesn't do it, the camera needs servicing.
I took his advice and wiggled the lens. The error message went away and didn't reappear no matter how I zoomed with the lens. Before, I always got the error message when I tried to zoom in! The error message did come back once, but went away when I simply wiggled the lens again. Thank you! I was ready to purchase a new camera! Judy Olson; [email protected]
