I had what sounds like the same problem. The camera was dropped and the shutter was stuck open. Just kept showing error message.
As I felt I had nothing to lose I began tapping it on a soft book and the shutter started to appear. I then shut it just using the end of my finger. When I then turned the camera on again it opened and shut when turned off. It has worked fine ever since.
Seems a rather poor design.
Hope this helps. Very best regards Peat.

FEE error message

To get rid of the pesky fEE just set your lens to f22 or f16 ( depending on what lens you have ) and that is all. You might also want to lock this setting in ( if it is a Nikon lens then the lock is on the side just above the lens aperture ring.

check if the little metal lens cover is stuck open.  Mine was stuck open, so I just smacked the camera against my hand and the cover popped closed.  Then the camera turned on normally...

Lens Error - Cool Pix L6 - Camera unuseable

Dont know if this will help anyone. I had a lens error for ages. In my long lasting devotion to google serk I found that many equall contenders found that a strike with a soft book in different directiions solved the problem. I ended up beating the camera from all angles with the palm of my hand. But hey! it worked. 4 months later im looking for the cure to system error 2. If you can help wi that one.

Dropped my camera on a hard surface and the lens is stuck open.

Buy a new one, that's what I did after I dropped my brand new camera.
