Try using the diopter control just to the right of the viewfinder. Carefully slide it up or down while peering through the viewfinder. Don't poke yourself in the eye while doing this.

SOURCE: Nikon S8100. Lens won't go

Hi and welcome to Fixya!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you remove the battery of the camera. Let it sit for atleast 5mins. then insert the battery. Turn the camera on and observe how it goes, this should reset the system and can resolve the problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one and happy holidays!

SOURCE: lens error. lens is

A lens error can be caused by physical damage to the mechanism that controls the lens, or debris that is interfering with the operation of the lens.

This article may be able to help you with a "do it yourself" solution.

In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting-- though with most consumer digital cameras, labor and parts cost of a repair can easily exceed the value of the camera.

SOURCE: my nikon s8100 won't turn

It means it has a bad battery since it recognizes power using a different power source. Replace the battery and it should work fine.

SOURCE: I have a Nikon D3100

That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

S8100 won't turn on after being dropped.

Sounds pretty straight forward. The impact most likely damaged the camera. Take it in to a service center to be checked out.
