A piece of sand had worked it's way into your lens machinery. Replace the whole lens, or find the grain of sand in a gear somewhere.

Lens error When I try to turn the camera on, the lens automatically extends and extracts itself, as if it's trying to open and adjust, and then closes. There is a "whinning" sound too.

Ok, you have to take the camera in for service, if you have warranty try that first - contact your dealer.

here is one repair place if you don't know where to take it

you may also contact nikon directly for a qualifyed service center near you.

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

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
