A whole range of different faults can cause Lens Error, both electronic and mechanical. If it's a mechanical problem there are a few things you can try listed at

If none of those work, realistically, your only hope is probably to look out for another camera of the same model on ebay with a different fault - hopefully you could get one quite cheaply. Swapping the lenses shouldn't be too difficult.
