We have a CoolPix L3 that is not very old nor has it been used (and or misused); perhaps 14 months old. Serial No. 30649827. The telescoping lens has tended to get stuck in a closed position. After installing FRESH new batteries, I gently tapped the camera body against my other hand and the lens opened but continued to move in and out. Sometimes it would stay open but not at its maximum position. Furthermore a message was displayed; LENS ERROR.What do you suggest we do. Is it repairable?

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing

Hubby put our daughter's Nikon Cool Pix in his pocket, bent over and now the lens cover is stuck partly open, and won't close all the way. The camera says "lens error".

My Panasonic Lumix DMC FS3 is not powering on fully.... When I switch the camera to the on position the green light blinks on and then off and the lens opens but the screen doesnt seem to power on. When I shut the camera in the OFF position, the green light blinks on then off and the lens retracts back into the OFF position. Can I trouble shoot this or do I have to take to a repair shop?

My FE-360 keeps shutting down with the lens stuck out. When you try and turn it on you can hear the lens trying to retract but it stays stuck out and the camera makes a bleeping sound. I have noticed that if i open and close the battery cover whilst it is making this bleeping noise, the screen comes to life. All of the menus can be accessed and options changed but the picture seen on screen is very poor quality and the camera will not take a picture. As soon as you press the capture image butt

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position.
