The same thing happened to my 2 week old L18. I called the Nikon parts department and they want $59 for a replacement screen. I'll take the camera apart tonight and see if it is easy to replace.

You have to push the lens back in.

You don't need the disk to transfer your pictures from your camera to your computer. Just take your sd card out of your camera and plug it into your computer. A folder with your pictures will appear on your computer. Copy them to a different folder on your computer, so you can take your sd card out and still have them on there.
If that doesn't work, plug the cable in that came with your camera, and hopefully that will work. I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

This is the third coolpix that I've had to either repair or replace in the past two years. The first time, Nikon told me that there was nothing they could do to repair the lens and suggested that while the camera was under warranty, to replace it for a whopping $95. That was (at the time) almost 3/5 the cost of the camera itself. But I did it, because my son was due any day, and I needed a camera.
The second camera I replaced, had the same exact problem as before, only I listened to someone at the repair shop, who told me to try to press the lens back in myself, gently. I was skeptical (with good reason), but I did it anyway, and the worst thing imaginable happened: the entire lens popped out! I DEFINITELY DO NOT RECOMMEND pushing the lens back in yourself to anyone who has a jammed lens. The repair man blamed me, and tried to nearly triple the first repair quote he gave me! I said screw it, and just bought a new one. I had to change model numbers, because the department store I went to didn't carry that model number anymore. So I got the next one up, and that was just in September of 2008.
In May of 2009, the lens jammed again! And this was with a different model number and everything. I didn't even touch it this time! I was being extra careful with this one, keeping it very safely tucked away in a case that only left the top of my computer desk when the camera was being used. I took the camera out on a day in May, and I turned it on. The lens unfolded half way, and then stopped, tried to retract itself, then unfold again, but it was stuck. Then the whole screen read "Lens Error!".

If you really want advice on how to repair your lens error, I've got a simple suggestion for you: DON'T BUY COOLPIX ANYMORE! Nikon needs to rethink how to put together a durable lens, or at least one that doesn't break randomly, after only a few months of use, for their CoolPix models. For the price they give, you would think that you're going to get at least a few years out of the camera...wrong! So just save yourself some money in repairs and replacements, and get a different brand, or at least a different model than CoolPix.

Is it worth fixing a broken LCD Screen on a Nikon Coolpix L18

That's up to you, of course. You can get a new screen here, but the cost is about the same as a used L18, and not that much less than a new L22 or L24. If it was me, I'd replace the L18 instead of repairing it.

Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital says lens error!

Sometimes the lens is just stuck, sometimes it needs to be replaced. Try to mechanically move the lens in and out by gently twisting, pushing and pulling. If that fails, the gears are too misaligned to repair it without opening it.

If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that replace them such as camera lens repairs.

If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.
