OK, this is lens mechanism failuer due to water damage. the core micro board will start to malfunction in time. this repair will need to be initiated by a Nikon tech. you will need to contact the manufacture for a repair ticket and the nearest location of a repair terminal as well. the actual lens mechanism you will need is not available to the public and, the board as well.

It is a pretty major problem for the Coolpix it seems. The internal coupling of the zoom lens is somewhat fragile, and a slight tap at the wrong time can mess up the system. It could have been something as small as a bump while it was being carried in your pocket. The problem is that you'll have to pay for repairs on it since technically it's not a camera error but something that Nikon says happened during usage.
Some owners seem to have been able to solve the problem with a gentle bump to the side of the camera, or some gentle twisting on the lens itself. I don't necessarily recommend that- or, at least I would call Nikon first and see what they have to say about cost of repairs. Other people say that once you do get it fixed, put the camera in Playback mode before you switch it off so that the problem doesn't happen again.

SOURCE: lens error
Hi, the chances are the motor that operates the lense has quit working or it could just be stuck with some grit, what you can try is this.
if you get hold of the biggest part of the lense and try turning it slightly now not the furthest part out as this just moves in and out but if you try turning the piece that is closest to the camera it may just free it up, try turning it whilst turning the camera on and off you only need to get it to turn slightly and this should free it up. or you could try pushing the furthest part of the lense in or pull it out slightly doing this may free it up also.
you may need to use slight force when trying to turn the part nearest the camera, but if after trying both of these methods it still dont work then this would point towards the motor failing and the only option would be to have the motor replaced, how ever the cost of repair would more than likely cost as much as the camera so you would need to shop around and check if the part was worth getting repaired or not.
