Every time I turn on my camera, it makes scratchy sounds as the lens comes out. Once the lens is out all the pictures it takes are really blurry, and the lens seems to have a lot of difficulty adjusting itself or moving.
It happened very suddenly and there are no evident causes.
I would be very grateful if you could give me advice on how to fix this problem.
It sonds like the lens went with you to the beach on March break. Because it sounds as though there might be sand in the lens. Either that or the camera received a knock or drop.
The lens on the camera needs to be repaired and the camera reprogrammed.

Clean the lens on the front, turn on the projector and wait for it to heat up, then turn the plastic ring on the front to change your focus. computer image can't be made blurry because of software. Blurriness is always something to do with the lens.
Sounds like a lens problem. If you've ever let the camera "auto turn-off" as a power-saving measure, any button pushed will turn it back on...even if it's in a case or your pocket. This puts strain on the lens as it tries to come out...result....lens problems.
You could have bumped your camera or it might have fallen. That the reason the lens might be making that weird noise while cloming out. It possible that it might not even be fully out and that the reason you are getting a blurred image.
Do take it to the nearest service center of Nikon. It could be minor alignment problem which they might be able to solve on the counter. You can Google for the adress of the service center closest to you.
Best of Luck!!
I just had the exact same problems today, I found this post by searching the Internet for solutions. =) By fiddling around I found a solution that worked for me. If you hold the lens once they're "down" as they are spazzing out, gently but firmly keep your grip so that the lens is flat against the rest of the camera as it tries to expand forward. Keep holding and wait until the camera turns off by itself. Then turn it back on, and voila! It worked for me, the blurriness was gone and I could zoom again like normal.
