There could be two things causing this problem.
1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard foe a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal.
2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inpect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on and your camera would be back to normal.

1. Sony digital still cameras are not supported for use as a Webcam. To
video conference, use a dedicated Webcam or video camera that supports
The MHS-PM1 and MHS-CM1 Webbie HD™ MP4 cameras support video conferencing.
Refer the link:
2. The camera is not supported for use as a webcam.
The only way that it may work is if you were to connect the camera to the computer via an analog video cable (yellow RCA cable) and/or audio (red and white RCA cables) for those models where audio signal transfer is also available. computer must have the ability of accepting input from these analog RCA plug(s).
To connect a digital camera for video conferencing follow this procedure:
1. Plug in the AC Adapter and set the Power/Function dial to Camera.
2. Connect an A/V cable from the Video OUT on the camera to the Video IN on the computer.
3. Within the third party software, select Composite as the input source.
You may also use Net Meeting Software that is preinstalled in the Windows Operating System.

SOURCE: My DSC N2 keeps saying
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful.
