I had the same problem and i read the other solution. i am not sure that i suggest such extreme lengths but whatever works i guess. All I had to do is hold onto the lens when it first came
out and now it works.

"The lens is jammed and won’t open all the way. You have to bang on the camera and/or tug on the lens to release it from whatever is causing it to jam when it opens. I started with gentle tapping and tugging…but ended up giving it three good whacks on a tile floor and yanking on the lens like I was going to rip the thing right out of the camera. It kicked on and has been fine ever since." I kicked the camera hard on its left side and it worked!

Check the Manual or the Sony web site to get an understanding of Multi burst You could simply type Multiburst in your search engine. I gather it is a series of individual still s that play sequentially, but check it out.
