SOURCE: Lens error
The most common cause of this issue on the L3 is an impact which dislodges the focus element in the very front of the lens. The metal platform that the focus system is mounted to is attached with 1 screw and is able to flex slightly under stress. When impacted it flexes and allows the focus drive to become misaligned. The lens still technically works but the camera senses that the focus is jammed and leaves the lens extended so no components will be damaged by retracting. This repair costs $145 at my shop, not an economical repair for this camera. Some parts of the focus element are accessable from the front of the lens. You can remove the metal cover (it is glued down). Generally you will not be able to re-install the lens barrier, but it can be removed without harm to the camera. When you remove the plastic plate which carries the lens barrier you will see a small metal gear, this is the base of the focus drive.

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.

The lens cover error is because the stepper motor in the camera is unable to open the lens cover. I have a solution posted in doc "nikon s5 s6 lens cover error repair.doc" uploaded on site http://www.esnips.com/web/papputatiyasStuff
It will be helpfull for you.
You have written that your lense is broken. In that case you can follow the procedure given in my doc to open the camera. You can replace the camera lens if broken.
Happy debugging Mukesh

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.
