Question about Nikon COOLPIX L4 Digital Camera
The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

i just fixed the problem. if your error is like mine, than when the lens goes out, hold it so it stays in place. and blow directly on the lense glass thing. than restart the camera and it should work. ok good luck =]

Not without opening her up, What sort of noise? clicking or grinding.
If grinding its likely you have contaminated the lens with something, maybe dust or grit.
If its clicking then its most likely the lens has taken a hit and damaged a gear
Either way any change in noise from a lens isn't a good sign, sorry
If taking pictures is important on this trip I would certainly recommend getting this one attended to or finding a backup
best of luck

Most of these kinds of errors come as a result of some kind of impact, sand or dirt exposure, possible water damage, or some other problem with the lens.
There is a possibility that the lens is off track.
Try pulling or pushing (not too hard either way) and see if it may be off track and return it to the correct setting.
Since it is not working anyway, try the above a few times and then test the camera to work right.
I have fixed more than one with similar (off track problems) and they worked good after wards.
Worth a try.
If nothing works, I suggest to sell it (include all that you have with the sale) on a site such as Ebay as parts, or as is repair. It should bring something like $20.00 to $50.00. The LCD is worth something over $15.00 alone. The other parts of the camera has value to those who repair cameras.

If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that's
preventing the camera from operating properly. If it hasn't been
dropped, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries
or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the
batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your
batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
If this response helped, please take a moment to post a rating for me. A "Very Helpful" would be greatly appreciated.
