When I attempt to turn on the phone camera, about half the time I get an error message that says 'preview error.' The other half of the time, I get a screen that is mostly black but at the bottom there are icons for the camera. There is nothing blocking the lens.
I can view pictures that are already on the phone (and ones I have taken in the past). But I can't take new ones. :(

Most of the time if you open up your messages and open the Message settings there will be an option to Turn Off Message Notifcation Preview or an option that says "Display only Phone number", "Display text message", etc. Just select the one you want.
Using the camera:

lighting environments. The flash is on by default, but you can turn it
off or use the automatic setting. To set the desired mode when using the
camera, select Options > Flash and Flash off, Flash
on or Automatic.

Turn the camera on and look into the view finder while you try to press the shutter button. Check the information in the view finder to see whether you are getting an error message. If you see an error message in the view finder, remove the lens cap and proceed to take a photograph but, instead of pressing the shutter button this time, press the button near the top of the camera on the back which says "AF/AE. If the camera takes the photo it means you have somehow initiated the auto focus/auto exposure lock which the camera will not override when attempting to take a photo using the shutter button. When you use the AF/AE button, you override this system. To remedy this issue, when you get the error message try pressing the shutter button again. Also, remove the lens to see if the shutter inside has frozen in the "locked" position. If you find this to be the case you will need to contact Nikon Customer Support. The link for Nikon Support is below. The numbers are half-way down the page.
This can work with CoolPix S10 1) Remove battery. 2) Replace Battery (Insure it is fully charged) 3) Press the Shooting/Preview button and keep pressing it while you press the power on button. This tells the camera to go into PREVIEW MODE without checking the lens. See if you can preview a few photos and that it works in preview - If it does NOT I cannot help you here. 4) If the Camera Works in Preview mode then press the Shooting/Preview button to put it back into "Take Photo Mode". 5) There can be a delay but it starts up without the lens error. 6) Make sure the ZOOM IN and OUT works and in most cases if the lens operates then you can take a photo. If the Zoom in and Out does not work you have a jammed lens. 7) If the LENS is Jammed AND it is OUT of warranty you 'might' want to tap the lens barrel against your palm. I have found when you remove the battery you can gently tap the lens into telephoto mode by tapping the back of lens assembly into your palm.
