My Nikon coolpix S10 camera was dropped and now the screen only says "lens error". If it is not touched the function returns to normal (has done so twice), but now the screen only say that one message and you can't turn it off or do anything). When it was turned off again and then turned on after a series of clicking noise the screen only said "lens error" and does not allow any other options(even turning off). Any helpful ideas would be apprecited. Thank you!
