Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?
My daughter's l18 has a broken LCd and powers on but quickly powers off. If I change the LCD, would you expect the other problem to resolve?
My daughter's friend thought the solution was to go buy a l20 as a replacement. But a second friend (friend?) managed to break the LCD on that one too!
Are these cameras known for fragile LCDs? I'm assuming the warranty won't cover - but might I be wrong?

Hello Marge. The entire Nikon line is sturdy but all cameras are fragile in a sense. Nikon Extended Service Coverage does not cover the cost of repairs associated with misuse, abuse or damage as a result of water or impact. Perhaps the solution to your problem is to switch your daughter over to disposable, single use digital cameras in the twenty dollar price point. Here is link to one source and a great deal of info about this option.

Hi.. My Olympus Stylus 710 camera is one year old and I have been having problems with it recently. Basically the camera is unusable right now. When i press the power, the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08 5f0e 5f08 5e02". Can you help me fix this problem? Sending the camera back to Olympus to fix will cost a bundle and where I live, no one fixes digital cameras.

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed. One will turn on so you can see through the LCD but only the top third of the field is visible. When photos are taken that is what shows up. Also it tries to focus but can't get it clear. The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?

You can try to pull the lens back into its socket, and it might work again for a while. Usually when the lens barrel is forced of track, something is broken in the process. Plan on installing a new lens. ... Digital Cameras
