I had the same problem described here and read that you can bang the camera as you power it on. I banged my DSC-W50 while powering up, at first lightly with increasing strength each time. It started working after the 3rd impact.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(
Both your camera`s lenses are faulty. It is a common problem found on the DSC-W range of cameras and therefore not to expensive to repair.
The lens unit is only available as a complete unit from Sony. Your best bet would be to contact the retailer where you bought it and ask him for the details for your nearest Sony Service centre. It needs to be a Authorised service centre as there are software and settings that must be done after a lens replacement.
In my experience repair cost will be between 40 and 60 % of the price you paid for the camera.
Sorry there really is not anything you can do yourselves to fix these problems.

Hi, I just fixed my daughters camera w/same problem.....I read on another site that you squarely hit it on table while holding in hand....I didn't have to slam it just one slightly firm hit and it works fine now...been broken for weeks and tried resetting and pulling battery to no avail...the hit works! viewing screen side is the side I hit on table, only had to do once, and not that hard.(camera was less than 2yr old dsc-70) good luck!

SOURCE: TURN POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN.
The problem is that the lens is jammed.
Here's what I did: I smacked the side of the camera on a tile floor a few times, until the lens started trying to open. Then I used a knife to pry up the lens a little. Believe it or not, it is now taking pictures. You can't imagine how excited I was to get it working.
If this sounds like a joke (it did to me), I got the idea from these forums:

Tips for a great answer:
Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.
