Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera ?
Lense won't open
\015 What size philips screwdriver did you use to open the camera? i'll try to remember/document how to put it back together.\015
Stop! before you open the camera try gently knocking the corners to loosen any particles that may have gotten into the lens housing. It may start working. If you get it open spray compressed air to clean it out. Next camera just buy an extended warranty. I found www.northamericacoverage.com to offer reasonable priced extended coverage on all products. In general every digital camera I ever owned had problems after 1 1/2 years of usage. They don't made them as srurdy as the old film cameras.

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.
