Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
I'm having the same problem...I turn my camera on and it says "access" while the lens is going in and out and finally says "turn the power off and on again". I have used the compressed air and tapped it on my palm many times and it's still not working. I went on vacation in Jamaica and I think maybe some sand got into it or a little bit of water. Is it worth paying the money to get it fixed (had it for 2 years) or should I just get another camera? Any other suggestions about how to fix it myself?
I had the same problem and did like one of the solutions above suggested and just flicked the bottom of the lens and it worked. Mine is great again.

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.
