Answers :

Hi,

Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to auto focus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Thank you!
The solutions of mstechwizard are good.
In addition I will add that if sand, dust, or dirt is in the camera lens gears then almost nothing will get rid of the material since the gears are covered with grease and the dirt or other matter will not be moved easily. It then needs repair and the lens gears to be removed and cleaned, then re-grease.
Having the camera repaired by nikon is a good choice, if you think that the camera is worth the price they will charge.
This is one of many reasons I always recommend never to expose the digital camera to sand, dirt, dust, or water, if at all possible. As far as the lens being extended and damage from being impacted can be avoided in most cases by using a padded case, and always turn off the camera when not in use. Also as important is always use the wrist strap around your wrist, that is what is is for, to prevent the camera falling to the ground.
