Nikon Coolpix S210 lens error: jammed lens.


Hello I am a photographer and generally deal with this kind of issue. The place I belong to has no digital stores to fix it so I learned to deal with these issues. The steps I am going to tell you are technical and have moderate difficulty in about 30-40 mins will take but after that your Nikon Coolpix S210 lens error issue will be fixed. So, let’s start:

Tools required: – #00 Phillips screwdriver, Spudger, Tweezers

  1. Place the thumb on the battery cover slide the panel to the right away from the camera.
  2. Slide the orange color rubber latch outward towards the corner of the camera, remove the battery and reattach the cover.
  3. Unscrew the four 3.10 mm screws on the slide opposite o the buttons.
  4. Unscrew the three 4.05mm screw on the bottom of the camera below the lens.
  5. Again use the screwdriver to unscrew the two 4.05mm screws, next to the buttons.
  6. Gently wedge the spudger between the back case and wrist strap mount. Carefully pry the back case away from the camera and then gently lift it off.
  1. Removed the back case, the LCD screen should be sitting loosely on the camera attached only by a wide ribbon and narrow ribbon. Remove the ribbons with the spudger put it underneath and lift it where it connected.
  2. Gently remove the LCD screen.
  3. Unscrew the four 3.8mm screws that hold the metal plate. Unscrew the 2.5mm next to the wrist strap.
  4. Position the camera with the lens facing down. Lift the metal plate without removing it fully you will find a ribbon attaching the edge of the plate to the camera. Unlatched the ribbon and now the entire metal plate should have detached.
  5. Remove the two silvers 3.1mm screws from the silver plate.
  6. Pry the spudger under the black latch and lift gently. Ribbon will release easily. Slide the spudger inside the loop of tape and pry upward removing the yellow plate with the other hand.
  7. Remove all the six 3.5 mm screws from the silver plate. Lift the silver plate to remove.
  8. Use the tweezers to remove the cylindrical gear from the camera.
  9. Place the spudger on the outermost surface of the lens and push it. This will extend your camera lens.

NOTE: – When reassembling, pay careful attention to the circled screw locations and the ribbons.
