Question about Digital Cameras
What type of camera are you using? this happens on my compacts when the batteries are too low to actually retract the lens so the camera just gives up. try replacing with new fully charged batteries. if not, you may have something trapped inside the lens, try cleaning around the edges with a camera brush or use something to blow air inside and then try again

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and realased. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
