I beleive the problem is known internally throughout Nikon, however, since it is a Japanese company, there is little that can be done. Is there any way you can help? There was an obvious click and slight realignment of the lens as it dropped back into place. Thank you for the info.

Looks like someone needs to improve on this design so that it's less inclined to misalignment and/or more durable.In any case... The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error. Soooo, before dishing out any money to get it repaired, check to see if it can be repaired free of charge. Check This Out I have a Canon SD1000, that recently had a little bit of a different problem than most posts here.

whatayaknow.

Purchased my 5700 december 2002, sent it off yesterday 18 July 2005, but only 2668 pictures, lens error!.
I read through this read and found that people can only use nikon 5700 for around +- 2yrs until the "lens error" occurs. I VOTED. But really, they only work for something less than half the people based on the voting, so don't feel too bad. Can anyone suggest me any solutions.
its now working again but for how long! the motor is loud though, i then polished and oiled the zoom lens cases. Its a lovely camera and I took some beautiful pictures with it and my friends used to appreciate my photographic skills.
