When I turn the power on the lens extends out of the camera and the power on light immediately goes off. The lens stays extended. no photo can be taken. This is a SonyDSC-P73 camera.

The only time that happens with mine is when I am low/out of battery power. I usually have to replace the batteries (even if the lens is still out) and then it works fine. Find it happens more often with rechargeable batteries because they still have a bit of power left, where regular batteries have nothing left after they 'die'.

Extremely short battery life

do you use alkeline batteries? if yes then they would end in 20-25 shots. Instead, use rechargable batteries of 2500 mah which will last long, very long. On my Cybershot H1, they give aproximate 350 shots with single recharge.

Go for Sony Original Batteries or Uniross brand also works fine.

2300 mah/ 2500 Mah any will work.. :-)

My camera keeps switching itself off!

I ordered some new batteries for it before posting my problem ,a dn after using the new batteries, the problem no longer exists. It seems that my batteries were so run-down that they just couldn't power the lens anymore or the flash at times

Still it sounds like weak batteries. Be sure to use either rechargeable batteries ( charge for a minimum of 14 hours ) or alkaline. DO NOT USE "heavy duty" carbon-zinc cells - they're only good for low power equipment.

P73 switching off!

This is most likely a weak battery. Be sure to charge at least 14 hours before using rechargeable batteries. If alkaline, replace with fresh ones. The zoom motor uses more power that any other features.
