I can't get rid of 'Lens Error' message and keep my camera switched on for more than a minute.

You don't need to drop a camera to get a lens error. Could be anything, from holding the camera in a wrong way (touching the lens barrel) or a bit of dust in the barrel or a gear, or a gear that breaks off. If the lens retracts correct when the camera is switched of, and comes out to the full extend when it is switched on, you should think everything is in working order. But when you say, the screen looks ver blurry that could be an indication, the lens is not coming out correct, or the focus mechanics does not work correct. I'm afraid you have to bring the camera in to a service centre (or buy a new one) if you can't solve this, by again take out the battery, charge the battery and reinsert the battery.

I have a Casio Exilim EX-Z33 and i dropped it a while ago and it continued to work (kind of, the images were a bit blurry). i took a picture five minutes ago and then turned it off. the lens went in but...

Sounds like the focus motor came loose - you need to take it apart and repair the gear that drives the lens assembly for focusing. The noise you're hearing is the motor trying to focus but since the lens cannot focus it continues to run and signals an error.

It has a lens error. Everytime the camera is turned on it beeps and clicks constantly. It eventually shuts off after displaying "Lens error, restart camera." on the screen.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Use your thumbs and gently yet firmly push the lens assembly back into the camera until you hear a confirmation "click"

SD200 E18 Error

E18 is the error that comes when when the lens is stuck, so if the lens is stuck out, turn off the camera, carefully turn the lens until you hear a small clicking noise, then turn it on. I had the exact same problem, and that fixed it for me
