What causes the camera get an error code of LENS ERROR?

When my Nikon Coolpix S4300 camera is powered on it appears like everything is normal. After about 5 seconds the code of LENS ERROR comes on the screen. Nothing can be done except to power off the camera. If I can't fix the camera I will have to buy my wife a new one!!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@dlojjo71 Does the lens extend from the camera when the camera is turned on?


Yes the lens extends and the display shows whatever the camera is pointed at.

sounds like a misaligned or damaged lens mechanism. When they are dropped or jarred the gears get knocked around or the mechanism breaks. When the camera trys to adjust the lens it sees resistance and cannot then throws that error
