I posted and looked around more online- I found this, did it and it worked! I just held camera with lens upright and used my left thumb and applied pressure when turning off with right thumb.
"I have dsc-w70 with lens stuck out . When you turn it on , you will see
a message turn the power off . I've just fixed this morning without any
tool and it took only a second . When i turn the power off with my left
thumb , i used my right hand to squeeze the lens with little push it in
, it will be back to the right position it should be . My camera is
working great now like before . Do not affraid , hope everyone can do
it . Good luck ."
Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.
This sounds like what started happening with my camera a few weeks ago. I found that turning the LCD screen off during picture-taking allows me to take pictures. I then have to go into review mode to look at the pictures I took using the LCD screen.
Definitely not a great fix. I'm trying to locate a firmware upgrade that may solve it.
