Default 5700 lens error?

Anyone ever experience a 'lens error' message followed by the camera freezing and then upon revival via battery removal and reinsertion a clunky noise when focusing?
Thanks

I started getting this after I got some dust into the helix ring (the ring of the lens barrel that moves the lenses in and out when you zoom). Turns out I have to get the helix ring replaced.

Just FYI, Nikon considers this a major repair and the cost on the 5700 is $203.
