    DSC-W7, Its lens problem and lens assembly needs to be replaced.
    Cost of repair would be over then camera worth so better to buy new camera.

It just happened to me and was looking for info on it and this popped up.
This might sound risky,but it worked for me.
Well it should me like stuck about 7/8 its original size when on and when look at from above,it is tilted.
What i did was push it a little to make it straight,and then i just pushed it back in with enough force to make it move but not jam it.After I pushed in back in,i turned it on,and Wahh Lah!
It worked for me:D

    I'm sorry for my English,though I may have made some grammer mistakes,as i was excited i fixed mine:D
    I am American.
    In the US.
    But what i meant to say was,
    I was searching information on this problem and if anyone had solved it,
    and you question popped up.
    So i clicked on it;messed with my camera,and this is what i did.
    I got the lens,pushed it the opposing side it was tilted to,and then i applied enough force for the lens to go in without jamming it.

I'm sorry that the camera display the eror: turn the power off and on again. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Refer the URL for the information to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings:

If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

SONY CYBER SHOT NOT WORKING


Hello samtx930, "turn off the power and on again" its a very commen problem and occurs when the lens block assembly start malfunctioning. Actually the slide motor not work properly and until the lens not come out completely the camera will not work, that's why the error message appears "Access" and then screen shows "turn off the power and on again". In this situation you have to replace lens block assembly.And the part No. is with description is given below: 1-788-363-11 OPTICS UNIT (ED13A) Thanks for using fixya.

First dont turn the power on just press PLAY button from which u see the pics.If it turns on and you are able to see picture display on the LCD  then switch it to pictur taking mode.It means that the problem is in lens.And in doing this procedure it shows nothing on the lcd and not go to play mode and message "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN"appears Then the problem is in main board.
