Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S710 Digital Camera ?

My nikon s220 says lens error and makes a clicking sound how do you fix that


Answers :

I dropped my Nikon s220 and the lens was stuck out and would move in and out repeatedly but never fully in or fully out. The screen said it was a lens error. I did the same as the first poster and manually pushed the lens barrel all the way in until the shutter closed completely. I was a little scared of breaking it fully because it was making lots of clicking noises and I had to put quite a lot of force on it. Then I turned the camera on and off and now it works perfectly again!
I had the lense error message due to sand and or dropping the camera. I tried all of fixes above. The final solution? I turned on the camera and before the lense could retreat back in to the body I trapped with my fingers. I then pushed it manually back in to the camera body. It clicked several times while going in. I turned back on, voila! A working camera!

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S220 on, it makes a funny sound and the lens tries to focus. It zooms in, and out, trying to focus but stays blurry. It then says 'lens error' and turns off. I have always kept it in a protective case, and have never dropped it. What has happened?
