Try this, it may work without the software.  Turn off the camera. Plug the usb cable between the camera and the computer. Turn on the camera. If a box pops up on the computer asking what you want to do, scroll down and see if there is an option to view pictures. If a window opens up with all your pictures on it, great. Now open up a folder where you want to put your pictures. Bring up the other window with the pictures in it and hit the control key and the d key at the same time on your keyboard. Then drag your pictures to the window where you want them and let go of the mouse key.  They should all move over. Then you can use Windows image viewer to see them. Let me know if that works.

SOURCE: "Lens Error" message in Nikon Coolpix L5

There are a few different things it could be though most likely the lens itself is out of alignment. There are methods you can try to "click" it back into place. First off how long have you owned the camera?
Thanks,
Lee

You don't need the driver...just get a card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

Check the memory card. It's probably damaged. If not it should be a software error, and you have to take it to the dealer where you purchased it from

I got message "system error


Having a "System Error" message display on the camera's LCD display generally indicates a problem where the camera will need to come to Nikon for repair. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. Before sending the camera in, check these:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with the camera (or a Nikon approved card) [/*]
  2. Remove and replace the battery [/*]

SYSTEM ERROR


dont know about the reset button, but i had the same system error message with my camera, which has been in a drawer for 3 years since i got the message. just found it tonight, was researching it and apparently coolpix lenses tend to stick, found some references to other models(not sq). i decide to try taling it apart to have a go at the lens, but tried the easier and more satisfying turning it on and off 6 or 7 times while banging on the body beside the lens, which seems to have worked. systems error gone , camera turns on, i've taken 20 or so pics, no probs so far.

System error


My camera has been sitting in a drawer since 2005, found it tonight and decided to try take it apart to see if the lens was stuck ( apparently this is a problem with nikon coolpix), but before i did ( couldn't find screwdriver) decided to try gentle brute force. i turned it on and off 6 or 7 times while banging on the body beside the lens (to the left if looking at the screen) and it seems to have worked. Systems Error message has gone and i've taken 20 or so pics. i was actually looking here for a solution earlier today, so here you go guys
