Your camera has problem in Lens mechanism. If Lens doesn't open properly, camera will not show picture at all. There would be Loading Motor section demaged in Lens mechanism and it needs to be replaced to work camera OK.
Now come to blue screen in playback mode, This model doesn't have internal memory, so you need memory stick/ card to see previously taken pictures.

Digital Camera Fault


ACCESS error could happen when lens gets stuck but if it happens when lens moves back and forth without problem it usually means that where the lens assembly plugs into main system board connection is loose. These connections are held in place by a very small thin fragile plastic clip and a few drops could be enough to snap it but not do any other noticeable damage to camera. Camera would need to be opened to see if clip is broken or maybe cable just needs to me reinserted. Either way only open camera if no longer under warranty and you are somewhat handy

My Sony DSC-w55 turns on and reads on ACCESS on black screen.


I had the same "access" problem as everyone else - but here's the real way to permanently fix this problem when banging and smacking it barely works.


1 - Remove battery and memory stick. Back up the mem stick if necessary or paranoid.

2 - Using a small Phillips head screwdriver, remove all of the screws you see from the front (lens side), right and left sides of the camera. Then remove all three of the covers and place aside. 
3 - Clean and remove all dirt & dust in and around front of camera, paying special attention to areas close the lens and lens housing areas.
4 - Insert battery and close the battery cover and then PLACE THE CAMERA RIGHT-SIDE UP ON A FLAT, NON-METALLIC SURFACE, MAKING SURE THAT YOU'RE NOT TOUCHING ANY OF THE EXPOSED CIRCUITS OR WIRING TO AVOID POTENTIAL SHOCK. This isn't a danger issue, more of a cover-my-*** related note. When I did this for my DSC-W55 I touched it just about everywhere without receiving generating anything close to a shock.
5 - Press the power button. If lens does open fully and you're still receiving the "access" message, continue powering off and on while using a toothpick or compressed air to remove remaining dirt and dust particles.
6 - When you're DSC-W55 is back in business - and after you've tested it multiple times via several on/off cycles, begin replacing the covers one at a time. The trick is to replace one cover, then to test the camera again via several on/off cycles. Do this until you've reattached all covers and camera is fully operational once again. 
Tip - you may find success early by varying the tightness of the screws for each side's cover as you move along the on/off cycle process.

ACCESS?!?!?!


I had to tap the entire front of the lense on the fat part of my palm. I had to do it 4 times semi-hard. Then the camera just popped on. Thanks for the tip, I did have to do it three times turning it off and on after each 4 strikes. The fifth time was a charm. I now have to do it every time to make my camera work. Crazy but it works.

Access


Hello, there is a problem with the optical unit (lens). Normaly when the camera is in camera mode the lens should go out. In your case it seems that for some reason the lens is stuck. Please contact your nearest Sony dealer. If you want to repair the camera yourself please tell me. I can send some additional info as well. Regards, Arpi

Access appearing on screen


Hello!

Same mechanism problem here on a DSC-W50. For me, it did not work out to PULL the lens, but to push them. I just opened the camera and it tried to calibrate the lens with no success for about 4 times, after it just let them out and displayed the "power off and on your camera" message. The problem is that on this model of camera when the lens is out you cannot push or pull it. So I thought of a trick: when the lens is moving, you can pull or push them. Anyway, this is what I did: with the lens out, i placed the camera with the lens towards a soft surface (bed) and gently pushed on the side with the display. First times it didn't work, so I had to push harder and finally it worked and now my lens is aligned and the camera is working as if it were new. I suggest you try to push or pull the lens while it is moving GENTLY at first, and if it does not work, try harder - really hard! It will do a click at some time and work fine!
