Will the camera lens come out when the camera is turned on?
Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?
Chances are the LCD screen has failed and would have to be replaced. (ive seen this screen problem when it goes to white or when cracked)
you basically would have 3 options,
1: send it out for repairs to Nikon? ( may cost close to what you paid) 2: Buy a used or new LCD on an auction site (if your gadget savvy and you can replace yourself or have someone do it for you) avg price $50-75? 3: sell your camera on an auction site to use funds to purchase another camera.

It doesn't say lens error? but it won't focus? it is probably the same as the other people who do have lens error displayed on the screen, the lens is broken is what the repair company told me about my s200 when i told me lens error
I have the same problem with my nikon coolpix s200. After 2 months the lens of my camera won't go inside. On the lcd screen stood lens error. I went to a shop with this problem. He took the battery out of my camera and press the off and on button for a while. Then he put the battery back in the camera and press the on button. The lens of the camera was now going inside en outside and inside and outside with a strange noise. And also on the screen stood lens error. Okey, the lens is inside the camera. But how can I fix this camera? What is the problem? What have you done? Please let know..!!
Whilst i am unsure as to a solution for your problem here, there is hope for the future.
Silicone skin cases to protect the unit from the undesirable elements.
I did however find a web site that sells the said cases and they seem relatively cheap and inexpensive as opposed to the potential accidental damage that most products of this nature, die from.
Manufactures would rather see you buy a new camera, where as i say - if it's worth protecting, look at the alternatives such as this, http://www.uxcell.com/silicone-skin-case-for-digital-camera-nikon-s200-transparent-white-p-7540.html
