Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

My camera lense is stuck out and when I turn on the camera it makes a funny noise and says "lense error" on the screen. Is there anything I can do to fix it myself before taking it to get fixed?


Sounds like the camera lens is jammed. Before you take it to become repaired, try cleaning the crevices of the lens module to make sure there isn't any loose dirt or debris in there. Try applying very gentle pressure to the lens and see if it retracts or moves.
If it still won't budge, it's probably an internal problem with the mechanism retracting the lens, there's not much you can do but send it off to get fixed.
Cheers!

I have nikon d80 the lens makes a funny noise and won't focus for a picture


Not sure this will help you: In AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual. Now, does another lens make the same noise of only this lens. Can you try the lens on another camera? What this is attempting to do is eliminate the camera or, the lens, that way you know where to go next.

Lens does not go back in and won't turn on and beeps. I turn the power button on and the lens makes funny noise and won't go back in. Then the camera beepsa and it doesn't turn on


That sounds like the gears in the lens drive have broken or are out of alignment. Not cost effective to fix unfortunately so you should look for a replacement camera UNLESS you are under warranty.
