LENS ERROR simply means there is a problem with the lens.
If the description is more detailed it would help.
Type of camera in the post always will help.
When the error started is helpful as well as how long you had the camera, as how it has been treated, did it ever get dropped, or had an impact of any kind?
Remember that digital cameras are very fragile, and should always be treated as if they are eggs, so to speak. Also the LCD is very easy to break if thrown into a purse, or some other carry bag. The camera should always be used with the wrist strap around the wrist, and put back into a padded case when done.
Lens errors can result in a number of problems.
The lens may be out of sync, or the guides internally could be off track.
Some of the internal parts, such as the gears could be broken (you will usually notice a grinding or other noise if this is the case).
There could be some dirt or sand in the track, thus causing the lens to stop or jam.
If the lens is cocked to one side, that is usually the result of an impact when the lens is extended. Sometimes this can be fixed by gently pushing the opposite direction when starting the camera.

Sometimes removing the batteries for a day may correct the problem temporarily. But the real problem is really in the lens mechanism. "Lens error"can only be repaired by Nikon or an authorized repairman. I sent mine back in Dec. 2007. It was repaired free of free of charge under the warranty. It was fixed and returned very fast.
The same problem just reoccurred and I sent it back to Nikon this very morning. They told me this is not a problem with this model, but I beg to differ. My internet search revealed that this apparently is a problem with many Nikon lens mechanisms.

Those deleted pictures can be got back as long as you take the right steps.
First things first - stop taking more photos (or videos) using the same camera (memory card) in case you may quite possibly ruin the chances of recovery.
Then connect the Nikon Coolpix camera (memory card) to your computer which has installed a data recovery software. Check this site Digital Camera Recovery for several tested and nice programs working under Both Windows and Mac OS X.
Hope it helps!
