Why should I have to pay to repair a camera that is less than a year old for half the purchase price? Remove and recharge the battery. It's a different model, but the general idea along the camera line seems to be that you need to "make it" open to unjam it then everything should be good. Support Contact #3 - I emailed Nikon. Source
Patience, a steady hand, and some experience with successfully having done a similar thing before. I do not own an S8100 - I just fixed it for a friend and gave it back, so I don't have it around to look at!

Whether the lens does/doesn't extend and/or you do or do not see an image on the LCD, turn the camera back off (to retract the lens) and remove the battery. You will need to remove two cables with this type of connector: The fairly small one coming from the control panel, above, and the much larger one connecting the LCD.
