One day when I turned my camera on the word lens has come up on the display on the top of the camera. Then it just turns itself off.
I noticed someone else ask this same question nearly a year ago, so it could be a common issue with this camera that hopefully someone may know how to fix without it costing me heaps of cash

Hi, This is lens mechanism problem and lens assembly will be replaced to fix the issue. Lens tries to correct its mechanical error three times then gives up and you see turn power off and on again display in lcd. If camera is under warranty, please call Sony to get it fixed or take camera to local camera repair shop if its out of warranty. Thanks.
I would help to know the error message, but here is what I can tell you.
Having a "Lens error " message display on the camera's LCD display
indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. This situation
generally requires that the camera be sent to a Nikon Service
Department for repair. Before doing this however, be sure to check
these situations below:
One possible reason for this error is if the camera is switched on
and the lens unit is prevented from extending. The camera will
struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the
problem. Inspect the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the
camera off, then on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off
then On again is enough to correct this problem.
Remove and recharge and/or replace the battery. If the error does
not clear up right away, leave the battery out of the camera overnight,
and try again the next day.
Usually when a digital camera has lens issues, they will turn on very briefly, then turn off. Try holding the bottom button in on the lcd side as you push the power button to see if your camera will display stored pictures. My daughter dropped her boyfriends 1060 in muddy water the other day and I cleaned it enough to get it to show pictures but couldn't get the lens to work. A drop or a speck of dirt will stop the lens from working. Haven't had much luck getting lens unstuck, but have replaced the lens unit, usually better to buy new camera unless you are very handy and can find a 1060 with a good lens and bad LCD, which I have done a few times. Looking on Ebay, most of the 1060's being sold 'as is' have bad lens and good LCD's......not good for us....hope this helps.
TIPS: 1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!
2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!
..to fix this...
Do as i say..
1.) Remove battery 2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed) 3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place) 4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out. 5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together. 6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.
or... 1.) Remove the battery. 2.) Wait about 6-8 hours. 3.) Reinsert the battery.
or... 1.) Remove the battery. 2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage. 3.) Try turning it on. 4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery. 5.) Turn it on.
I'm not sure what exactly your question is but this sounds normal. My D50 does the exact same thing. It displays the number of frames left on the LCD on top of the body when a card is in, and an 'E' when it is not, even when the camera is powered off. The only way to comepetely turn this LCD off is to remove the battery from the camera.
If an aperture of "00" is displayed on the camera's LCD panel, perform the following steps in order. Check after each step to see if the problem remains, and proceed to the next step if it does. (In some cases, you may see "Err 01" displayed on the LCD panel.)
1. Check if the lens is correctly mounted on the camera.
If no lens is attached to the camera, "00" will be displayed for the aperture value.
2. Clean the lens contacts.
Turn the camera's power switch to OFF, and then detach the lens from the camera to clean the contacts.
Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens.
Do not touch both the camera's or lens' electrical contacts with your fingers while cleaning the lens.
Turn the power switch to ON again and check the aperture value displayed on the LCD panel.
Refer to the Instruction Manual provided with your camera for instructions for detaching or mounting the lens.
Also, prevent any foreign materials or dust from getting into the camera through the lens mount, and be sure not to damage the contacts.
3. Remove the battery pack.
Turn the camera's power switch to OFF and remove the battery pack. Then reinsert the battery pack, and then turn the power switch to ON again.
