"Lens Error" on Nikon Coolpix S230

\015 I dropped my new camera, a Nikon Coolpix S230, and the lens must of popped out. It won't close and the screen only says "lens error" when I try to turn it on. It was a Christmas present and I am so upset. Please help ;-;\015

Answers :

Sorry, but there's no simple DIY fix, and any homebrew repair attempts will likely make the damage worse. Your camera's warranty won't cover the damage, so I suggest that you take it to a local camera shop (NOT the camera department in a chain store) or contact customer service via the nikon.com web site to arrange repair. Be sure to get a firm price before you commit to anything though. The fix can easily approach the price of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.
