Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera
What you are seeing is a generic message that means there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,

In the Canon point and shoot digital cameras, this error ... lens error (some times will also say E18) restart the camera is a common lens error message. to restart the camera in such cases, it may be necessary to remove the battery, then put it back and hit the start button, which may reset the lens.
This may not work, and you can try to either pull or push on the lens as it starts. This can also damage the lens more, and break the parts, but sometimes is worth the try.
