Nikon Coolpix L3 Lens Error Fix
Turned it on and then off again and the lens cover finally closed. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. After gently but firmly tapping the A/V out corner of the camera 4 or 5 times it works like a charm again.THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Now the chrome trim. http://windowsazure4j.org/nikon-coolpix/nikon-coolpix-s4-lens-error.html

Particularly I do not recommend probing deeply around the most outer (largest) lens barrel gap, as you may dislodge the lens barrel dust gasket that's located just inside of that gap. there are more to follow so keep track of the size and locations. The problem you probably have: The actual lens is in a little round, black holder that sits in the middle of the zoom assembly.

- this sucks i want all the picture on my camrea and all these way to fiz seem so legit...
- Much better than paying someone to "fix" it...
- Works fine now!!!!
- But after resetting the gears, resoldering, unsoldering, cleaning the lens, resoldering again, and putting back together....it worked.
- unsolder the battery leads to the circuit board.

- Miraculous results, it worked and continues to work!
There was an obvious click and slight realignment of the lens as it dropped back into place. A++++ April 21, 2008 at 4:37 AM Rachel said... so can you help me? January 22, 2008 at 10:07 AM Anonymous said...
I zapped myself real good with it the first time. -Make sure the lens is clean BEFORE you put it back together. The lens does not retract.The logo is still there but very hard to see as the screen seems to be dark but it is there and freezed.So switch back to OFF jonno,Take a look at this.
The LCD display sucks up a lot of power, so by not having the LCD display turn on, more battery power will be available to help power up the lens.
If you remove all of these, and release a couple little grey plastic catches on the circuit board, you will be able to tilt the circuit board up. Definite last resort but worked for me. Again, while doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process.
THere are a couple more little catches and THREE tiny screws (one in the corner, one by the power LED, and one at the bottom end of the chrome trim) to Take that cable and plug it into the the AV input slot on your digital camera. Then turning the camera on. Can you please suggest which camera would be a good choice.
Very cool! have a peek at these guys I figured I would post my experience in hopes of helping out the cause. March 31, 2008 at 6:57 PM Jenna said... Thanks a lot!!!I tried most of the tips but the one that worked was pulling on the lens barrel while starting up the camera.
Every few times, the lens will not close and I will have to force it in again. was about to call manufacturing to have them fix it but id still have to pay shipping and possibly even fees if they dont include lens in their warranty. Make sure it's dry before you reseat it, and reassemble the camera. http://windowsazure4j.org/nikon-coolpix/nikon-coolpix-p2-lens-error-fix.html Dislodging Particles from Lens Barrel Gaps (Fix #5a) Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming
Use very little of this. the forcing the lens worked while turning it off and on! i have removed the 8-9 screws around the perimeter and can easily separate the grey/silver joint.
For example, the video focuses on repair fixes for a camera that does not have obvious damage to the lens barrel (such as from a fall). Sometimes the lens won't even move. the tiny screw on the side that you described and at the motor drive ( with another tiny screw. Turn off the camera and restart it to see if the lens error has gone away.
