Solved NikonCoolpix P520 won't turn on or respond.

Specs: Windows XP
Had been using the Nikon Coolpix P520 then went to turn it on and the lens jammed partly open and no buttons working. No lights, wouldn't turn off or on and I removed the battery and put it back it but still nothing. Just stuck in the same place and no buttons are responding.

Usually any Nikon-authorized service center should accept the warranty. You might also contact the online site you bought it from and see if they can suggest anything. In the meantime don't do anything else to try to fix it as that may void the warranty.

If it's jammed and not due to a power problem you may be able to shake the camera or jiggle the lens. The linkage is sensitive and may respond to that or if something fell into the opening that may dislodge it. If that doesn't do it, it may need to be disassembled, probably by a repair shop.

But make sure the battery is fully charged and making a good connection with the camera's internal contacts.

Tried that, couldn't get anything to move. The battery is charged, although probably not fully. Can't think what else to try. I tried another battery too but that didn't work.

I found this for a different coolpix model:

I don't know how similar yours might be. Disassembly isn't something I'd attempt unless I was prepared for the possibility that I couldn't get it back together.

Don't think I would be game to try that. It is under warranty but because we bought it on-line I'm not sure where to take it to for repairs. I will google it. Thanks for your help.
