Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix L1 Digital Camera ?

Nikon Coolpix camera lense wont retract :(

\015 I have either dropped the camera or it has been bumped, but my lense wont retract, and 'Lens error' appears on my screen. It is leaning to the left. I have gently tried to push it back, but wont budge. Is it worth taking to a camera store to get fixed? Thanks so much....\015
