Thank you. So after changing the batteries, removing the memory card, tapping the usb cover, and finally forcing the lens (repeatedly) with minimal success, my co-worker decided to hold the camera flat, lens Most broken ones on ebay seem to also have lens errors, thus could not find a replacement part. Thanks for this resource. http://kreativexpert.com/nikon-coolpix/nikon-coolpix-l3-lens-error-fix.html
touch wood.....thanks again!!!!! I dropped my Nikon Coolpix P2 while it was on, and got the dreaded Lens Error. jdolly, I can try. You may be able to crack the case bottom and reveal the round motor, about the diameter of a AA battery.
BECAUSE ONCE I GOT THE LENS ERROR ON THE LCD SCREEN. but nothing has worked. January 4, 2008 at 9:18 AM Camera Repair said... I didn't want to give up on the camera for it was a gift for my birthday.Thank you very much!

DarkoAqua 38.849 προβολές 3:07 NIKON LENSE ERROR - Διάρκεια: 0:42. Follow this guide of how to replace it. I love my digital camera and I have to use it.But there's no way I'm sending it somewhere to get fixed and I don't want to have to buy a new look at this web-site Then retracts, there's a partial shutter closure.
I have my camera back again!Thanks to this site. I tried the next steps, blowing on it, putting it in review mode, turning it on upside down, etc etc ... This action appears to have put the gearing in the correct location to properly extend/retract.Thanks for posting! After reading the link more closely, believe that you only need to go to step 8 to be able to remove/reseat the cable.CR January 4, 2008 at 10:36 AM darklurker said...
It can be resolved by keeping pressure on the bottom side of the camera where the battery door is located. 4 Comments Add Comment Camera went off by itself with the Now everytime I try to turn it on, "Lens Error 150,0,047" flashes on the screen and then the camera turns off. finally, I tried shaking and hitting and pushing. If the easy fixes didn't work, then the camera probably needs replacement of the entire lens assembly, which is no trivial task.
June 6, 2008 at 5:37 AM Tobeon said... this contact form Sorry to say that only about half of the lens errors can be corrected by these methods. 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. i actually tried twisting it back in but i was afraid to break it any other suggestions plzzzzzz March 5, 2008 at 5:13 PM Anonymous said...
I did not get an error but after zooming to any extent, I was not able to zoom out. But there is some risk to your camera. It was working fine without indicating any problem... have a peek here First, I took out the battery and the memory card.
Again, this didn't work for me, I suspect the grit has ended up in the cogwheels below the barrels. Do you know of anyone else with a similar camera that you may borrow their battery to try with your camera? A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired.
So I finally gave up, but upon putting the thing back together and trying the lens, I got an improvement (I think): the lens actually made a fast rat-a-tat sound like im afraid warranty wont cover this one. I really like the camera and havent had it long. All it took was an extremely gentle rotation of the lens.
If you feel brave, try it. February 5, 2008 at 9:58 AM teenynz said... February 5, 2008 at 11:35 PM Ronit said... Check This Out I have a Canon Powershot SD400 and the lens jammed one day.
jdolly, one more thing. Thanks. Try grabbing and holding the smallest inner lens barrel at its furthest extended position, preventing it from returning to the camera. January 18, 2008 at 7:26 PM Pradeep said...
but pictures has clear horizontal lines. It's certainly better but there is still something sticking, gentle taps while the lens is trying to open seems to help it and I can now take pictures again, maybe it I'm leaving the above post as-is just to amplify what's already been stated here several times. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.
