Customer Question

I have had a coolpix S7000 for about 5 mo. taken ~50 pix. Went to use it and the lens cover will not open properly. Have always been a Nikon man..F2, FE2, F3, boxes and lenses all Nikon Galore !!! All have been 1st class cameras. This S7000 has let me down and been a big disappointment I don't know now if I'll ever buy another Nikon. Cost of repair is about same as new camera, but don't want another S7000. Looking at a Canon.
Anything to say?....Paul ***

Hi there Paul and welcome

First, I want to see if we can get the issue fixed please.

Can you remove the battery from the camera then hold the shutter button down for 60 seconds then release.

Put the battery back in, turn on the camera and tell me please how it now functions.

Can't afford to put money into a broken/failed camera. Better to start over with a new one. Will willingly pay only original $5 charge and then am unhappy to boot....Paul
