My camera a Coolpix S3000 won't open. The lens stays closed. What can I do? I did not drop it.

Lens errors are a common problem. Dirt can get into the gears or the lens can become misaligned from being carried in pockets, purses or at the beach. Because your camera is obviously, still under warranty, the only "do it yourself" fix that I will suggest is to get a can of compressed air and blow out the area between the lens and the camera body. If this does not solve the problem Send it to Nikon. They should fix or repair it for free. You can set up your repair if necessary through the link below
