Somebody can send me a Nikon L3 Coolpix Repair Manual or Nikon L3 Coolpix Repair Services Manual?

This is an awkward one. If you were clever enough to replace or repair the lens assembly you wouldn't be writing here so all I can advise is to have a very close look at the lens and see if you can notice any slight variation in it's positioning. If you can see part of the lens is pushed slightly to the left then with a very fine blade lever the lens from the left to the right and at the same time switching on. It's often easier to get someone else to do the switching on and off for you. Make sure the batteries are fully charged too. If you can get the lens to come out a little way then keep trying and it's possible it will realign and start working. Of course it's possible you've fractured a nylon gear or two so that will be a specialist job. All I can tell you is that if you can't get the thing to work yourself it's going to be very expensive. Maybe another check on Ebay for a transplant possibility. BMW

SOURCE: camera lens will not close
Sometimes you can try to get it unstuck by looking at the lens at is is. Then determine if it appears to be at a slight angle, if so, it may be that you can force the lens in the opposite direction. This may not work, and may damage the lens further, however, since it is not working, trying may be just what is needed.
I have had some success by forcing the lens in the opposite direction as it is turned on with pressure of my fingers pushing it. It has not always worked, but I have two which worked just fine... one was a 7.1mpxl nikon and the other was a 8mpxl Canon.
They both were off track, and jumped back by a little force.
If the lens was hit or dropped, then damage can be more than can be fixed. What can happen is that the small track parts can be broken, then there is no way to get it back on track.
Also, dirt or sand can do a number on these small parts. It is amazing how these extremely small pieces of sand can jam a lens, but I have seen it happen.
Take a hint and keep the camera away from sand and water, or risk trouble.

LENS ERROR simply means there is a problem with the lens.
If the description is more detailed it would help.
Type of camera in the post always will help.
When the error started is helpful as well as how long you had the camera, as how it has been treated, did it ever get dropped, or had an impact of any kind?
Remember that digital cameras are very fragile, and should always be treated as if they are eggs, so to speak. Also the LCD is very easy to break if thrown into a purse, or some other carry bag. The camera should always be used with the wrist strap around the wrist, and put back into a padded case when done.
Lens errors can result in a number of problems.
The lens may be out of sync, or the guides internally could be off track.
Some of the internal parts, such as the gears could be broken (you will usually notice a grinding or other noise if this is the case).
There could be some dirt or sand in the track, thus causing the lens to stop or jam.
If the lens is cocked to one side, that is usually the result of an impact when the lens is extended. Sometimes this can be fixed by gently pushing the opposite direction when starting the camera.
