    I first used a can of air to free any dust, lighly sprayed front of lens, this was done with camera on.

    2. Then tried the method of using small piece of paper around the extensions of lens, still not working.

    3. Tried laying it flat face up to ceiling depressing shutter and on button, still not working.

    4. My last resort, I took a wooden spoon and gave it a sorta hard firm tap around the camera, :)

My camera isnt working, its not doing anything, stuck with the lens open and wont do a thing

This is not a do it yourself problem. Go to the Nikon USA webpage and find the Nikon Repair Depot nearest you. They will give you a repair estimate. You can then determine if it pays to fix your camera or replace it.

Nikon coolpix L22 display will not come on and lens will not open

Your battery may be drained. That can be because the camera's built in battery charger is not working, a defective battery or an electrical problem in you camera that is causing an excessive drain on the battery. I would buy an inexpensive external battery charger. Once your battery is charged, see if your camera works. If it does, you have solved your problem for less then it would cost to send your camera in for repair.

I have purchased a nikon coolpix L22 digital camera 6 months back but now adays shutter of the camera not closed during power off of the camera.

The lens dust cover (sometimes called the shutter) can stick sometimes due to residue or sticky
substances. Sometimes it can be tweaked with an alcohol swab gently rubbing
the dust cover to lubricate it to clean off the residue.

I JUST got a Nikon Cool Pix L22 but no matter what setting I use EVERY picture is blurry. I am an art teacher and understand shutter speed and aperture, I even used a tripod. The pictures are still...

Most likely your fisheye lens attachment is out of alignment. An internal element may have come unscrewed or unglued. The other option (I'm assuming you have already checked this) is that it is incorrectly attached to the camera - check your threads and make sure it wasn't cross threaded and that there are no blockages to the lens attachment being screwed in completely. If the fisheye lens is not in the correct position relative to the CoolPix lens, then the pictures will be blurry.

My screen is black or blank

I think you mean your automatic lens cover opens. A stuck shutter is a common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
