Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
There have been a lot of similar problems with the Sony Cybershot DSC series.
For sure the problem is with the lens sticking (either not retracting or retracting then coming out then going back again, etc.) What I seem to have found is that this "off, then on" problem is caused by some little cogs around the lens that easily slip out of place in this camera. The camera has trouble sensing if the lens is in or out, which is why it keeps asking you to turn it off then on again.
One solution is to give the camera a firm tap around the lens area. I don't necessarily recommend that since those cogs in there are obviously delicate. Other than that, repair is going to require opening up the camera and setting those little things back into place.
Here's another story:
I have dsc-w70 with lens stuck out . When you turn it on , you will see a message turn the power off . I've just fixed this morning without any tool and it took only a second . When i turn the power off with my left thumb , i used my right hand to squeeze the lens with little push it in , it will be back to the right position it should be . My camera is working great now like before . Do not affraid , hope everyone can do it .
And then another solution that you can try is to change the battery pack of your camera.
Good luck .

As you turn the camera on, pull out on the lens to help it along, as you turn it off, push in on the lens to help it close. At one point when the camera was off, try pushing the lens in all the way, slowly but don't be afraid to push until it stays shut. Then, turn it on I had to pull the lens out a little. It keeps opening and closing continuously. Just keep pulling and also move the base of the lens until it is even all the way around. Push and pull while turning off and on. Don't be afraid to push and pull with your fingers, not a tool. It might took you about 10-15 min. Make sure the lens is pulled out all the way. Sometimes it is just that last small amount that needs to be pushed or pulled.
