This is problem with Lens Mechanism and requires replacement. As its purchased in Jan 09, should be under warranty. Please call Sony Customer (Phone number would be written on user manual) and ask for warranty cover.

I had the same problem. I took the lens assembly out and took it apart and found a broken plastic tab that connects a very small spring for the focus lens. Apparently the lens tries to autofocus, but can't because the spring is not connected so it then shuts down. The spring is near the smallest motor in the lens assembly. I made a new connector for the one end of the spring out of a small wire and glued it in, then put everything back and it fixed it. This is like working on a watch, everything is very small, I mean tiny. You need much patience and a steady hand for this job.
i had the same problem, if you try to turn the lens in as if you turning a dile, the lens will go back in manually once you have the lens completly in again, as if the camera is switched off, then turn the camera back on at the power button and the camera will operate as normal, this worked for me i hope it works for you too.
This is a firmware problem that is common with many many digital cameras. It will have to be upgraded. The company will do this for $50 Otherwise you may be able to find a kit online and do it which would be hard to located

Problem fix 100% , I opened the camera i had nothing to lose, and took a look inside I tried the camera with out the shell and it work, put the body on the camera back on and everthing works. I did not do anything but open the camera?
I have a Kodak 1275. Green light would go on the off and lens was stuck open. Now for solution that worked for me. Get a can of compressed air, like what you use for computer keyboards. Blow the compressed air all around your stuck open lens, not to fast and switch directions of where you blow air around stuck opened lens. Make sure batteries are fresh and fully charged. Tap your camera against the palm of your hand twice, not to hard or you may damage instead of jarring lens lose. Next lay your camera on a table lens facing up, push power button on so camera will try to auto focus and lens should reseat itself and lens should move freely. It doesn`t have to look dirty or dusty, little tiny particles can cause the lens to get stuck and shut off fast because it is a safety feature. If this does not work try plugging your camera into computer so the lcd screen does not try to go on , thus giving even more power to get your lens moving . Do not try to force it closed by pushing or twisting with your hand or you may cause damage that will cost as much as the camera to fix.
I had the exact same problem in September 2007 (must be built in obsolence). I sent mine to Fuji's repair center to get repaired. Unfortunately, it becomes a decision of whether to get it repaired or buy a new one (repair cost ~$160). The kicker is now the flash will not work. I get a message/warning of camera shake. The manual says it's something to do with the shutter speed but no mention on how to correct it. So it becomes another decision of do I throw more money at it (send back for repair) or bite the bullet and buy a new camera.
